Hard Drives Need Data Off

Dropped laptop and then it was being very slow. I then turned it off and when I switched it back on it came up with the following message: "repairing disk errors – might take over an hour to complete". It has been hours and nothing has changed.

The hard drive on my laptop is damaged (due to being closed with force) and comes up with an error message when you try to turn it on. All I want is to retrieve the pictures of my son, I don't need anything else. If you could help that would be great!

Buffalo HDHSQ

An external hard drive, a Buffalo HD-HSQ(V2) Drive Station Combo 4, is failing to mount and be read by computers. It makes clicking noises for 30 seconds when powered but other wise cannot be read.

Drive does not open when connected to computer, able to hear the drive spinning when powered up but unable to find the drive – seagate barracuda 2Tb. How much would it cost to repair/recover the data from this drive?

The external hard drive is a WD5000AAKB-00UKA0. It fell over on the table and the laptop now fails to recognise it. On startup the sieve rotates and tries to initiate but after a number of attempts it shuts down.

My computer (MacBook) doesn't recognise my external hard drive (Samsung). It does make a sound and the light is on but it doesn't appear on the desktop. It happens when I was copying some files from the drive to the computer and my computer froze and needed to restart Finder but then the drive didn't appear any longer.

When I plugged in the hard drive, it emits a periodic mechanical beep/grind. I unplugged the drive relatively quickly. It hasn't been dropped etc.

I have a verbatim external hard drive that is no longer being recognised on any lap top or pc. I was wondering if you could give me a quote for how much it would cost to retrieve the data.

I dropped the hard drive from about 1.5m in height and it hit a table on its way down. I plugged the hard drive in to check if it still worked and got a clicking noise for a few seconds then it went quiet but could not be found when opening windows explorer. However when I went to eject the disk safely it was recognised as a device there. I'm trying to get a quote for how much it would cost to recover the data from the drive.

How much does it cost to recover data from an external hard drive. It is a Seagate SATA drive, the power light comes on but the computer does not recognise it is connected. i have a toshiba canvio 4tb drive the pcb is faulty the model number is MD04ACA400 HDETR11GEA51 G3626A 3.5 inch could you source a new board for me

Seagate, Samsung and Buffalo hard drive problems

I have a 1TB Samsung S2 portable HDD drive, and is no longer recognising on my mac and other devices, flashing LED indicates that it is read/write but nothing can be found. normally by holding it I can feel it reading but currently I get no vibration at all. It hasn't had impact or been dropped. I really need to have this data as has all my music, movies etc.

samsung s2 hddRecently my 5tb external hard drive fell onto the floor at the height of 18" However this has caused it to stop responding. I have removed the hard drive from the external chasis and placed into a working computer and the drive is not being recognised by the BIOS. I have further opened the drive to check the internals. The header readers appear to be in the parked position and does not look like there is any damage to header reader pins. I suspect either the platters cannot spin up or header mechanic to read across the platers maybe damaged. Could not be sent back to seagate as the external drive was a gift. The data on the drive it not really that important i am looking to get a quote for the drive repaired IF it can be. If the cost of the repair exceeds the price of a new drive then it will not be worth it.

I dropped my Buffalo External hard drive on the floor , and now I am not able to access data on the drive The details of the actual drive is as below : Samsung/ model HD103UJ, HDD P/N : HD103UJ/JP1 I have around 300GB of data in there – please let me know approximate costs of retrieving the data. Would be great if you can provide me some info on the process you follow.

Single HD partition C is still working fine, but partition D with all the data is showing as Disk 0 Unknown Not Initialized. I think it is a 1 or 2TB drive. WD 1TB My Passport Ultra, dropped on the floor and now makes a beeping noise when connected to the computer; computer doesn't recognise that it is connected. (1) Please can you email me the estimated cost for data recovery, (I am currently aboard so rather not have a callback). (2) Can I take the hard drive directly to your Chiswick branch? if so, what are your opening hours?

To answer your questions, it doesn't matter what make your storage media is, Buffalo, Seagate and Samsung all use the same types of hard drive. To discover what's the problem with it will require us to look at the hard drive and diagnose it. This is a free service. If you decide you go ahead with the recovery the cost is usually about £500.

LaCie and Buffalo NAS Hard Drive Recovery

In this post I look at several enquiries received asking about data recovery from hard disks from LaCie NAS and Buffalo NAS drives.

NAS hard driveWe have a hard disk in a Buffalo NAS that has died, it starts up and makes a clicking noise but that is all. If we plug it into a caddy it doesn't find a drive letter or doesn't seem accessible. It has some crucial information on there we would like recovering please, unfortunately it wasn't backed up elsewhere.

Do you have ST4000DM000 100710248 REV B HDD board ? if so, how much do you want for it and how much do you take for PCB transfer ?

I am experiencing a problem with my LaCie 5Big 2TB external harddrive (RAID 0). I cannot gain access to my files, and the icon / drive will not show on the desktop or elsewhere in my settings. However, the drive does respond to my Mac being turned on and off, and the LaCie's lights glow as normal (connection is by Thunderbolt). A friend suggests a possible corrupt boot software problem. Apple technical staff have tried to locate / fix the fault without success, and LaCie say I need to copy the data if they are to attempt to tackle the fault. I have had the drive (and Mac) just over two years, and am currently evaluating options as to what to do. Any advice you can provide would be most helpful. If I chose Data Clinic, how much might it cost to recover my files and, if possible, get the drive working again? Could all the work be carried out here at my home? (near Bedford) For information, I run a video production business and edit client work – as well as my own home film projects – saving to the LaCie. It is my belief that the issue arose after the upgrade to the Sierra operating system.

Toshiba 500GB external hard drive when switched on the power light flashes red and blue continuously

My WD Passport Ultra 2 TB worked very well since I bought some five years ago. I used it yesterday but today it did not detected by my laptop and after a while it gave a small "ting" sound, after serveral tries it still not recognised. Please let me know about the cost of recovering the data and the time needs.

Windows 10 crashed and had to be reinstalled. looking for the data on my hard disk. I also have a usb external hard drive that I want to recover the data from this hard drive.

The hard-drive was dropped and now will not register on the computer. You can hear the motor run when its plugged into the Mac but it isn't recognisable. (I have had my Mac looked at and its a problem with the drive). I would like to have the data recovered from the drive and transferred to a new hard drive.

I have two hard drives from two different failed NAS drives. One is a 3TB drive from a Lacie Cloudstation and the other is a 500GB drive from a Buffalostation. I can't access either. Neither is in the chassis.
