Question about Computers & Internet
Hi. I have a Seagate 250Gb external USB hard drive. The USB drive is recognized, but it makes a strange noise when plugged in. I am nevertheless able to see the files/folders on the USB drive. I am however not able to view or copy any data from the USB. Any tips on how i can get it to work again or recover the data without paying an extortionate fee? It worked for a couple of months and has alot of data on i would like to recover even if the unit is only suitable for scrap.
Well, in your case I think you can try some so-called data recovery software. It's pretty much cheaper then data recovery services.
First of ALL - Connect your external hard drive to your personal computer. And install this software Wondershare Data Recovery on the computer in order to perform 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!
