Can i transfer data from a damaged drive to a new one?

My lacie external drive, fell off my desk, now it makes a clicking noise and the computer can't read it. i was wondering if it is possible to transfer the data on to a new external drive? or have i lost this data forever?

    My Lacie will not mount up it just sits there and makes a revving sound, but never gets up to speed and will not mount up. Is there something I can do other then a data recovery company? I've tried turning the drive on and off several times but with no success. 




    Any help?

if the computer reads the hard drive and data but does not transfer it it may be a space issue otherwise if its reading nothing it may be a connection issue cause by lose wires or a faulty port ensure you have the drivers for the external installed and windows updated

Lacie 1T Poulton design external hard drive is clicking


Before you resort to freezers and desperation, know that the external power supplies for these things are a. crucial and b. delicate. If the output voltage is down for any reason, it can produce the same clicking symptoms. I would get to a repair shop, and ask them to test the drive with a 'known good' power supply. I did so this very morning with a LaCie drive: no more clicking, happily mounting drive...and power supply replaced under warranty. Good luck

Sounds like the power supply in the external case has gone bad (or going bad)...

If you have another external case, AND the drive itself is not damaged, you can move the drive to an external case.. Alternately, depending on the connection (IDE/SATA) you can move the drive internally to your computer.

I have a Lacie 500gb


Clicking noise is indicative of hardware failure. You could of course try a different computer, but chances are it's a goner. With hardware failure, the only way I know of rescuing data, is sending it to a data rescue company. Expensive. Which is why you need a minimum of two copies of everything you plan to keep..

LaCie Hard Drive Dropped


Disassembling a HDD is not for the faint of heart or anyone without a "cleanroom laboratory' and a whole lot of skill. If it dropped and it now chatters or clicks, or worse - grinds, it is likely beyond repair. Contact the manufacturer - they're your best bet.

Lacie 120GB dropped


If you open it up you will see that the drive is a regular computer drive. You should be able to plug it into a computer as a secondary drive and try to get the data off. But if it's clicking and making noises there may be no hope. Sorry!

Lacie sounds like its working , but i can't find the icon on computer


Your hard dive is probably not formatted. You can check if your external hard drive is detected by the BIOS during bootup. You can also check this by Right click on taskbar > properties > startmenu > customize > advanced > scroll down completely and select system administration tools "Display on the all programs menu" > ok. Click on start > all programs > administrative tools > computer management > double click on storage. click on disk management(local) here you should see your lacie. If you dont then the drive is probably not detected. If you see, you can just partition it from here and it will appear in your my computer.
