Question about Maxtor Personal Storage 3200 (U01E200) 200 GB Hard Drive
I was moving my Maxtor and it slipped through my fingers, hit the ground. It wasn't plugged in or anything like that, it was completely disconnected from the power when it happened. When next I tried to run it, I just get a faint whirring sound, like the drive is starting up but then gets caught and doesn't finish. I decided to take a look at it and unscrewed it and pried the case open, and looked inside it. I took the screws off the metal enclosure for the drive and have attempted to get the metal off, but it won't open all the way, like it's stuck to something else. I was wondering if there is anything else I can do without paying hundreds of dollars.
Maxtor is very difficult. If youve opened it, then youve voided the warranty. YOu may just need to extract the drive gently. THough dropping drive, on or not, seldom bears a positive outcome.
There should be some screws to remove from the below the foot. The spine peels away from around the enclosure then the 2 halves separate..which model exactly is it?

It's ruined, and even more so now you opened it.
If there is important data on it then a data retreval service could try to recover the data for you by removing the platter (in a clean room) and placing it an special reader but at a price!
