If it bounced twice
First bounce the haeds hammered the platers and vibrated about 500 times a sec and for a duration untill the second bounce and hammered the plated again vibrating 5oo time a secone until coming to a rest.
Knowing this the spot on the disk that was hammered may be about .005 or less of an inch. How much data do you thing can be pulled from these dimples. The margin is so small that recovey might have to be done at a molecular level only the CIA people have this technology

First you might want to check if there are any problems with your Memorex drive. You can do this using the free trial version of http://www.hdtune.com/

If it checks out ok then you can try to recover your data with Recuva it's free http://www.piriform.com/recuva

Or if that does not work you will need data recovery help. A good choice for low cost and fast data recovery is http://FreeDataRecovery.us

They do data recovery remotely over the Internet from a boot cd that you download and the best part is they just ask you to make a donation after they recover your data.

Drive accidently fell on to a tile floor, how do i recover the data off it


Hello

OK, unfortunately you will need to take the drive in to your nearest computer repair store. They will need to send the drive to recovery centre. The reason why i am suggesting this, is because you will need specialised equipment to recover the data of the drive spindle.

Please feel free to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Kind regards

Memorex 160gb external hd


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Sorry to be bringing you the bad news, but chances are, the Memorex is a goner. You could still of course try removing the actual/internal hard drive, connect it to an IDE/SATA to USB adapter and see if that in turn would be recognized by any of the computers. If yes, then it is the electronic/data interface of the Memorex that is defective. If likewise not also, then the actual hard drive is faulty. If the hard drive still spins and makes no mechanical noises, there is a slim chance that the contents could be recovered using file recovery software such as GetDataBack.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

I don't you can solve this at home. You need expert that have hardware and software to retreive your data for you.

The reason you get this message is because your flash drive lost the header to tell the computer how to retreive your info.

Lightly Dropped Seagate 100GB External Hard Drive


Unfortunately, this probably means the read/write heads were jarred and can no longer function properly. That's usually fixable, but it's a very expensive fix because the parts are inside the hard drive and the data surfaces are very delicate... Most people are better off simply replacing the hard drive unless the data is absolutely vital.

Laptop fell onto floor...now my memorex travel drive is broken...all college papers lost...help


This is actually fairly common, if the laptop still works with the broken USB socket you can take the cheap approach which is just don't use that port. If you need more ports a USB hub is pretty inexpensive.

Hard drive crash


if your HD cannot be detected anymore..then there would be 90% chance that your data's cannot be retrieve. however, if it is still functional as a secondary drive but the partition is damage..try using FileScanvenger to retrieve the data.
