If we're talking about an external Western Digital hard drive that you believe is damaged from overheating. There is little that can be done. You can pull it from the external drive enclosure and attempt to connect it directly into a computer to discern if it is the drive or the drive caddy that has failed. If you determine it is the hard drive then you can send the drive to a data recovery house. This is very costly so be warned. -Ravi Shanghavi

The damage of hard disk of a Window operating system enabled computer or of any storage media such as pen drive, ZIP drive, etc is the common problem that is faced by the users.

My pendrive (d33193) gets heated up & it is not detecting now. I have important data on that pendrive.How i can recover the data? Pls help me.


No solution, it is damaged now due to high voltage current which it could not handle. Flash drives are easily damaged by such problems. All data gone, bye bye.

Ticking hard drive


Sadly that about sums up your issue when dealing with a ticking drive. This sound is normally caused by a hardware malfunction of your drive controller board, motor or head. If your drive is still detectable under your OS you can attempt to recover the data with a software recovery utility. However, be warned that the more you use a failing drive the worse the damage will become and it could possibly increase the cost to have it recovered.

The reason for the high price tag on the data recovery service is due to companies having to open your drive inside a clean room to avoid any dust damaging your data. They then replace the failed parts on your drive or transplant your platters holding the data into working hardware to recover said data. While some of these repairs can be done by hardcore computer users it is very rare to do it at home.
