When it beeps it means there is a motor failure.

Data can usually be recovered but is expensive.

The disk need to be opened in a facility called "clean room" if you open an hard drive in a normal environment, the smaller dust in the air will ruin the data inside forever.

This kind of service costs no less than $800.

See an example here:

first off take the caddy apart so you are don to the internal HDD once you have that connect it to either your PC or a friends PC that has the same connections on the motherboard, either IDE or ATA.

once connected look in my computer and check disk management (to get to disk management right click my computer and go to manage)

if you can see your drive in here then it is just your caddy that is broken simply buy a new one and put in.

if you can see the drive but cant access it try file recovery programs like recurrva or file inspector.

if you still cant see it unplug the orginal HDD and boot to a live CD/USB something like Knoppix and try to recover data

Crashed external HDD Verbatim


Hard drives are easily damaged by dropping them.
When a hard disk makes a clicking sound and the computer does not detect it then the hard disk is faulty. This is commonly known as "The click of death".
There is no way of fixing this hard drive, if you need to recover your data, then there are companies that can recover data off faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

I need to open my Toshiba Canvio portable disk.


try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use this file recovery program called asoftech data recovery to recover your files.

My external hard drive was damaged i wont recovery from hard drive.


Depending on the severity of the damage you have a couple of options.

1) Put the HDD inside a airtight bag and place in a freezer for at least 4 hours. Remove the HDD from freezer and see if it works. If it does start to work you will have a limited amount of time to recover the data.

2) Pay Data recovery company to recover the data

Blinking light, clicking sound?


Hard disks clicking is not a good thing. Did you drop it?

Open the case and check connections.

If you can, install it as a slave drive on another machine and attempt to recover data from there.

Afterwards check the drive for errors, reformat and delete partitions. If it is damaged then parts of it could be used as storage, but I'd advise against using it as a bootable disk and as a storage location for precious data.

Failing this, there are specialists who can recover data from corrupted drives. You'd have to speak to them about it.

Hope this helps
