Question about LaCie External USB 2.0 500GB 7200 RPM 500 GB Hard Drive
I can't access my lacie hard drive... When I turn the power on it just runs and makes a clicking noise. I can't access any of the files. What can I do?
You are experiencing the infamous "Click of Death" indication of a failed hard drive.
Most likely, since you cannot access any data on the drive and it has the loud click, the most likely way to recover data from the drive is a data recovery service. www.ontrack.com, www.Drivesavers.com etc.
The bad news it that data recovery is extremely expensive. So, unless this is data you cannot live without, it may not be worth the expense to recover the data. You can contact the data recovery specialists and get an estimate. Last drive quote I saw was a 120 GB drive cost $1200 for recovery.
