Question about Fantom Drives 120 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

My dog did it in. Fell over and screeched to a halt.

I have some data on this drive I would love to get back--particularly pictures, but commercial quotes to retrieve it run from $500 to $3000! Anybody know of someone less expensive?

Re: My dog did it in. Fell over and screeched to a halt.

I've heard of "drivesavers" as the best data retrievers in the industry. Don't know how much they charge though. Sorry.

I need to recover information from my damaged Hitachi Life studio

If the hard drive is damaged then it is near impossible to recover your data without expert help.
There are companies that can recover data from faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.
Check the Internet for companies near you that can service hard drives.

try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use this data recovery program to recover your files.

More you try to use, you'll have less chance to recover the data. Try consult with seagate service center to fix the drive first before send it to data recovery company.

An external storage-device has four major components:

* the USB cable

* the power-adapter

* the disk-drive inside the enclosure

* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

One of these components has failed.

Try a different USB cable.

Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer.

Try connecting to a USB port on a different computer.

Take a "multi-meter" and measure both the voltage and amperage output from the AC adapter, and compare with the specifications on the label on the adapter.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and then connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if it works at all.

Purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Get the part-number and serial-number from the label on your disk-drive, and access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status", to see if they will replace the device, at minimal cost to you.

There exist commercial "data recovery" services that can try to repair your device, just long-enough to rescue and copy your files. For example, see: for a "no data - no charge guarantee".
