Question about Iomega eGo Portable Hard drive 500 GB external 25" HiSpeed USB 5400 rpm buffer 8 MB USB 20
How to take the data from the HDD
Posted by Anonymous on
There are a few steps that you can attempt. Such as using diskpart to try and reformat the drive. Or trying to remove the hard disk carefully from the enclosure then putting the actual drive in a desktop computer and seeing if it is recognized and able to be formatted.
Most of the time when I have dealt with this issue. Sadly the only solution has been to RMA the device becuase there is nothing you can do to fix this issue this internal issue.
The only way to now retieve your data is to seek a data recovery service which will most likely be expensive. Especially if the data recovery service is a real data recovery service. Make sure to ask about the recovery process and how they specifically retrieve the data. If the company says that they actually remove the HDD platters from the old drive to recover the data, you are probably talking to a real recovery team. Rather than a company that will only try connecting a cable and running some software.
