Question about LaCie (300728U) 250 GB Hard Drive
I really need some help...
My hard drive just suffered a small fall onto the floor and now it's not appearing on my desktop and making clicking noises when I power it up.
As a graphic designer, I have everything on there and desperately need to get my files off there asap - could someone please advise me what to do?!
My mobile is 07932 074 627. Please advise!.....
Many ThanksNash Ahn
If it's clicking none of the software will help - it's a mechanical failure. Most likely it has bad heads. This site should help you better diagnose the problem.

Unfortunately, the clicking is a 100% sure sign that this hard drive will no longer be usable in any sort of prioduction environment. However, you may be able to recover some (if not all) of the data before turning it into a Objet D'arrt Moderne.
What you need to do is run some data recovery software that performs what is called a "low-level" scan. What the software does during a low-level scan is check the drive bit-by-bit, looking for data that it can interpret, thus bypassing most hardware errors.
Two pieces of software that I've had excellent success with are:
GetDataBack - http://www.runtime.org/downloads.htm
Stellar Phoenix - http://www.stellarinfo.com/download.htm
Both of these pieces of software have the capabilities of which I spoke and are, to word it dramatically, your last bastion of hope in recovering your data.
I wish you much luck and please, if you have any further issues, wither with the drive or with the downloaded software, please don't hesitate to contact me directly at email@example.com.
Have a great day!

Once, the harddrive making sound's difficult that's probably dislocated your media disc inside your harddrive. The only way possible to recover is to disassemble the harddrive and transfer the media to new one which the same specification, brand and model.
Please let me know if you need my help. If possible you will send the harddrive here in Philippines. And I will be the one to recover all your file.
Hope sound interested with you.
