Question about Samsung (SP0822N) 80 GB Hard Drive

Dead hard drive

I took my laptop in for data recovery. I was told that both the motherboard and hard drive were toast. Is there anyway to recover data from a hard drive that doesn't spin? The techs mentioned something about a clean room and several hundred dollars. Any better ideas?

Edwin,

Not sure if you still can recover your files. There are some good recover programs around, but not that many good ones for free. Some programs you can use to see what you can recover, and then you can retrieve 5 files or so and for more you have to pay.
Anyway when not to many files are already encrypted, you should be able to retrieve some or most files. Be aware you should not write one bit to the drive, till you really got back what you need.

Check out these sites, and see if you can get a program that helps enough. If not, you always can buy.

Basically, can DriveWire "see" a Mac hard drive on a PC?


So, when you plug it into your WIndows XP machine, does it show up in "My computer"? No? Try this,
Turn the computer off without the external hard drive being plugged in.
plug the external hard drive in a usb port, power up, the systems post boot up will find the drive and inform windows what hardware is installed.
When windows boots up, it will look at all the hardware and find the external hard drive, when windows finishes booting up you should be able to see the drive in my computer.

If you can't access your files,data recovery software can help.I used this one called Tenorshare Data Recovery to retrieve files off crashed HDD and it worked.
If needed,you can download it and scan your hard drive to preview whether your files can be recovered.BTW, you can get it from

Hi Oscarmegs,
Your data on the hard drive are lost due to physical damage.But don't worry,you can recover data from hard drive with data recovery software.I have succeed with Tenorshare data recovery.It can recover data after deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data due to drives crash, physical damage,system sabotage etc.
Anyway,download a trial version and scan your hard drive for free to preview whether your files can be recovered. http://www.any-data-recovery.com/index.htm
