Question about Hard Drives
My seagate hard drive fell onto carpeted floor while running. It appeared to be ok for a few days, but now the blue light indicator seems to be going off and on instead of steady on, and my PC won't read that it is even plugged in. I have a huge amount of date that is on this drive. If I buy another HD, is it possible to transfer the data? I can't afford those high priced data recovery services. Please help me if you can. Thanks, Ramona (BooKooGuru)
Will the drive be shown under "Disk Management"? If no, make it. Then the MOST effective way is to try some so-called data recovery software to rescue the data.
First of ALL - Connect your hard drive to your personal computer. And install this software Wondershare Data Recovery on the computer in order to perform data recovery. Get the program from its site.
data recovery (for Windows OS)
Mac data recovery (for Mac OS X)
Good luck. I hope that my reply has shed some light on the problem!
Remember - Always make Backups of your precious data!
