Lacie 1 TB External Hard Drive

I purchased this unit nearly 9 months a go. It was working perfectly, then one day, Data could not be read from the hard drive. It will read about 2 GB then stops. The unit has about 920 GB of extremely important data and I dont know what to do at this point. Additionally, when the unit starts, it makes funny squeeky noises. The moises stop, but the data can not be accessd. The disk information indicates that the data is there, it is not reachable.
Is the data lost?...and what can I do to fix this disaster?
thanks in advance

How do I find a repair person for a LaCie 1 TB external drive?

it may be a bad drive and depending what is on it it would be very evpensive to fix. you can remove the drive from the case and plug it in another computer with a spare sata slot and try it. if it wont spin up it is bad. only three definits in life: death, taxes and hard drive crashes. sorry hope that it will work on anothe computer.

Yes, power cuts, surges, low voltage, variable voltage and any sudden changes in electricity can cause a hard drive to fail or act improperly. If the drive had failed, though, you wouldn't be able to see or do anything with the drive now. Are you able to save anything to the drive now? can you browse to it and save a small text file or document? If you can save a document and read it from the drive now, the drive isn't completely failed, and your data may still be recoverable.

Note that I had only put 1GB of data on the drive. I expect that the resynchronization time is not proportionnal to the amount of data on the disk!
