Question about Computers & Internet
My External laptop drive stopped suddenly. It was connected to my machine and the ahrd drive was on the table. One of the colleagues have to walk through the cables so she picked up the drive and put it in my hands and since then it stopped working. The light turns on green and then to a greenish red. The hard drive makes squeaking sound and stops making any sound within a minute. It is not recognized by the computer. I tried re-booting my laptop but it didn't help. I have my entire career related stuff in this drive. If it fails, I am destroyed. I need help. This is a WD 120GB. Please suggest.
Have you tried connecting your external to some other computer or OS, will the same problem occur?
Well, in thiscase the MOST effective way is to try some so-called data recovery software to see if you can find some data back. Recommend you have a try of Wondershare Data Recovery. Get the program from its site.
data recovery (for Windows OS)
Mac data recovery (for Mac OS X)
Good luck. I hope that my reply has shed some light on the problem! Remember - Always make Backups of your precious data!
