SOURCE: hard disk data recovery

In effect the reading head is almost for sure damaged and there is no easy DIY way to recovery data at home.
If the content is really important you can send it to a company who does data recovery. Service is expensive and probably it is going to cost over $1000, furthermore they do not guarantee success.
This company does hard disk data recovery
Alternatively you can ask to a local repair shop to take a chance , get an Hard disk of same model and replace the disk. I warn you that chance of success working in this last way are very scarce and there is good possibilities that you lose your data forever

SOURCE: Does the Intel 82801 chipset recognize the full

Yes it should recognize such small drive. Note that the partitions on the drive will affect how big drives are shown.

If the drive is partitioned into two 10GB parts then you should have C: 10GB and D: 10GB

Note that if the drive is partitioned not to use the full capasity then the capasity it is partitioned to will be shown instead.

Also Note that computer hard drives the capasity is not accurate presentation of the GB available. it will always be somewhat less than the reported size, for example 1000GB disk is shown as 931.50GB
500GB disk is shown as 465.76GB and so on.

SOURCE: how to recover data from corrupted hard drive?

Hi, liub97.

In your case, it is recommended to use this data recovery tool to recover as much data as possible. If you are Mac OS X user, go to this Mac hard drive recovery software.

Then follow the procedure to reformat your corrupted hard drive. Mycomputer -> Computer Management -> Storage-> Disk Management . Note: you can also opt for a third-party formatting tool.

Things are not over, after formatting, retry the program to see if more data can be recovered as you know a simple format option won't erase data permanently.

Best regards.

Computer sees the drive. That is important. I'm assuming this uses a standard IDE cable and the drive isn't physically damaged. Make sure it is the only drive connected and it is the Master. Try flipping the cable if you have checked that the connection has a snug fit. Put the connector that you had the hard drive originally on and place it on the motherboard and the connection that the motherboard had insert it in the hard drive.Or better yet try a new cable. IDE cables have a tendency to fail. You could also try some recovery software. Maxtor is now part of Seagate so you can try here:

If you absolutely have to get data off this drive and you are desperate, then you could try the freezer trick. Put a dry towel and hard drive in the freezer for an hour or 2. Take the hard drive out and wrap it with the cold dry towel. That is to try and minimize any condensation build up. Plug in the hard drive and see if it works. This could potentially kill the hard drive but I have recovered data using this method before. If this works for you do not depend on this drive anymore. Good luck.

I/O device error


Hard drives are easily damaged beyond repair by dropping them on the floor.
There is no way of fixing this hard drive, if you need to recover your data, then there are companies that can recover data off faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

You could try to use file recovery tools like File Scavenger or similar. If at fall moment Hard Drive was ON, then there is bigger chance that information will be unrecoverable because of damage of Hard Drive disc surface. If data is very important like work data (MS Office files and so on) I would suggest to hand this item to local data recovery center. It might be costly but if data is essential then no doubt it is worth to try.

your disk motor is stuck and not turning the disks from being compressed from the fall. you will need to take it to a computer shop that agrees before they work on it they will be able to save your data. tell them exactly what happened

Slave Drive not recog in my computer but it is disk management with no drive letter


A quick thing to try Is
remove the 80gb from ide cable and power plug and set the 20gb back as master.
boot into windows from 20gb 1 time ,
then shut down hook the 20gb as a slave and the 80 back up as master
Allow windows to find new hardware , "watch closely down by clock ". It will tell you when windows has finished and will say you might need to reboot before new hardware will work properly
After rebooting Both should show inside My computer
Good Luck I hope this helps
