Question about Computers & Internet
I am trying to recover data by connecting my old PC hard disk through an external caddy. It only makes a clicking noise which I presume means that it is dying or dead. Is there anything I can do. Is it worth opening up the disk?
Opening up the disk will render it unless you have access to a 'clean room' - which most of us don't.
However, I've been able to get 'clicking' drives to work by repeatedly connecting and reconnecting it to the USB and / or power source.
Sometimes it will 'catch'. Sometimes a nice 'tap' on it helps too.
Most of the time, it's spacejunk though.
