    When you say recover... do you mean to save the data, or wipe it out and start over by fixing the drive?

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.

Don't be panic. you can try some data recovery software. You can see

It tells the steps how to perform data recovery.

If above does not work, you may have to format the hard drive (use quick format), and then use above mentioned software to scan again the hard drive and recover your files.

Hard disk no open


Hello, may b your other harddisk mite hav sum errors in it. Hope its detected in windows, bt not accesable.

Try booting with any linux live CD (google "puppy linux", its just 90MB approx) and connect the harddisk. Now access ur harddisk from linux. If u still cant access it, then u should format it.
if it works in linux, then backup all ur improtant data and format it wit NTFS. Ur prob shud b solved!!

Primary Master/Slave Hard Disk Error


Honestly, this is the best software I've used for file recovery:

It's a bit pricey, but if your data is important, it's worth every penny.

Hope this helps!

HDD unable to detect at My Computer


Well first I would pull the hard drive out of the case. I would then get a USB to IDE/SATA drive cable. I would connect the drive not being able to be detected to another computer via USB.

If it works the drive is still good but the data might be corrupt. If the data is corrupt I would be sure to get any stuff you can off of it and basically reformat and reload.

"Non-system disk or disk error replace and strike any key when ready".


If this error occurs you open the cabinet disconnected the harddisk data cable for few seconds and reconnected the harddisk data cable and bot it will work.
