Question about Computers & Internet
My external harddrive fell 2 feet while it was running and now it won't work. It turns on, the computer recognizes that it is on, but I cannot see my files. It doesn't make any wierd noises, but is there a place where I can get it fixed?
Here are some suggestions that might work in a knocked up drive: First,put your drive in a freezer for a day. Place the drive in a sealed bag and get as much air out or vacuum seal if need be. After freezing, quickly insert the drive into your computer. This seems to temporarily reset the heads in the hard drive to allow you to recover and copy some of your important files for a short period. Second, take it to a data recovery service center. They will retrieve the data for you but I would like to warn this will be a bit expensive.
