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.

Hard Disk Help

In this, my first post of 2017 I'd like to thank the UK blogsite Recover Deleted Data for being kind enough to offer assistance with the following data recovery and hard drive help and advice I provided. I've included links where appropriate to further useful information.

WD Scorpio hard driveMy colleague has an NTFS formatted 2TB WD Elements USB hard drive that he dropped.
Since the drop, the drive is not usable. It can be seen in windows device manager correctly and also is seen as a device in Linux however cannot be mounted and the smart details show a high reallocated sector count.
There's no nasty noises coming from it and it seems to spin up happily when connected it just won't mount for whatever reason.
He'd really like to get the data off it, is this something that you think you'll be able to provide?
I understand that you can't guarantee it, however an idea of if it's possible and a price would be appreciated.

The harddrive spins and powers up fine but no data can be read and is not detected in the system bios. I have tried on two different machines. I can hear a slight click in the drive and my father in law did move the machine whilst running so may have knocked something out of place slightly. none of the data is backed up. .

Drive started clicking rapidly and the read speed reduced and driven started hanging. I ran a surface scan which showed some bad blocks around 200, then after a reboot the drive won't mount or show up at all. it is a seagate barracuda 3TB formatted hfs+ and i have a 3tb replacement drive ready

I have the hard drive from an old dell laptop that i would like to access.
