Dell error code 2000-0142


Any error code for a hard drive isn't good, and should be reason to get a new one right away. So long as the drive is still able to be accessed, you have a chance of retrieving your data. There are free utilities to help you 'clone' the data to a new drive, but you may want to ask a tech-minded friend for help if you've never done it before. It sounds like the drive isn't dead yet, but is definitely on its way out. Good luck!

Tip

Data Recovery (possible) from faulty hard drives


DAMAGED HARD DRIVE - DATA RECOVERY

Data recovery from faulty hard drives is difficult and can be costly. There is no guarentee that you can recover data from a faulty hard drive.
If the hard drive makes a clicking noise the the hard drive is dead.

First thing to try, is to remove the damaged hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and then plug this adapter into a working computer's USB port. If this computer sees this hard drive as an USB mass storage device (external hard drive) and you can open the various folders and files, then I would backup your data.
If the hard drive is not detected then the hard drive is dead and data cannot be retrieved with this method.

Retrieving data from damaged hard disk is possible. There are companies that can remove the disk platters from the damaged hard drive and with special equipment may be able to recover your data, but it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services. The reason for this high cost, they dismantle and remove the platters in the hard drive in a clean room environment and set up the platters up in jig/drive to retrieve/copy the data.

A hard drive failure is not ever good news. Most failures will result in at least some data loss, but often data loss is significant and even total. There are companies that provide software to help recover this data and others that provide a service that specializes in retrieving data from failed disks, but the pricing is per byte and can be very expensive.

If you're lucky, you may have only suffered a partial data failure in the boot sector of the drive. Installing a new hard drive as the primary master and reinstall the operating system on it as new. Once the installation is complete, see if the machine boots as expected. If it does, log off and power off. Connect the old drive as a primary (or secondary if needed) slave drive and reboot. Make changes to the BIOS to reflect the addition of the slave drive or as another non-booting drive, if asked.

If you boot into the newly installed operating system, you may be able to view and copy uncorrupted data that was on the old drive. Copy as much as you can - and see if the important info you want / need was copied successfully. After retrieving all you can, you should decide on whether to pursue or how many additional recovery steps you want to try.

When completed, the drive should be formatted and you can attempt to reuse it if you feel the drive failed because of something specific that was done to it, etc. Start by using it only for expendable data - such as a page file, temp drive, etc.. As confidence in the drive grows over time, you can use it more often - but keep in mind that it might fail again without warning - and the chances to retrieve data from it may be even lower. The safest bet is to discontinue use of the drive. Determine if it is covered under warranty or not and if discarding, it should be physically destroyed to prevent data retrieval later.

Good luck!

Hard drive shuts off after 10 seconds


There are a variety of things that can malfunction on your external hard drive: 
1) The cable 
2) The external hard drive casing 
3)  The hard drive itself

If you have tried plugging in your hard drive to different computers and are still having the same issue, then there is either a problem with your casing or with the hard drive itself, because you've already switched out cables.   
If your hard drive casing has malfunctioned, then retrieving your data is as simple as putting the hard drive inside another hard drive enclosure.  Hard drive enclosures are available at any local computerstore, and also available by going to our website at www.iomagic.com and clicking on Drive Enclosure.  Make sure to get the right size enclosure.  The GigaBank 320 has a 3.5" Hard Drive inside it, which is a standard desktop hard drive.

If you put your hard drive in another enclosure and it still won't show up on any of your computers, then your best bet at retrieving your data is to contact a data recovery specialist.   After you have retrieved your data, we will replace your unit if you are still within your warranty period. 

For specific warranty and replacement information, go to www.iomagic.com  and click on Support.
