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

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.
