Question about Iomega HDD External Desktop (32660) 80 GB Hard Drive
The other day I lightly dropped my Seagate while in use. Now it doesn't mount on my laptop. The reason I use the term lightly dropped is because the drop was about 12 inches from the floor. You can't even tell I dropped it by looking at it because there are no scratches or dents. It is now making a clicking noise every time I try to use it. I have almost 100GB of stuff on it and loosing the data is not an option. How do I fix it or at least get the data off of it on a tight budget?
i have a iomega 500gb harddrive, i dropped it accidentally, when i plug it in it makes a clicking sound and vibrating sound, the power light comes on, but the pc doesnt load the external harddrive... plz help me, i have too much valuable stuff on it....!!!!
Your not going to like this, but remember you did ask..
The only way to recover your data is to use a data recovery centre.
You can try this place if you are in the USA
This is not an endorsement of that particular company, but an idea of what you will be dealing with.
For the record, there is no such thing as a light drop when it comes to hdd's. The drive will have recorded the damage as a G-Force that can be read off the controller board at the factory and will not be covered under any warranty either.
Sorry for the bad news.
