Dropped hard drive

Hi, I recently dropped my irocks hard drive from about 20 inches while off. The next time I went to use it the device turned on and began spinning but made a clicking noise and would not show up on my computer. Anything I can do to fix it or at least get the data off of it? Thanks.

You can try using Ghost to back the data up. It sounds to me like a head crash.

Can I put in my PC Compaq Presario SR 1610NX a Hard drive Maxtor 40GB, 3.5 ? Thanks


Hi,
Desktop Specs Link Motherboard Specs Link
A. From the first link above, you already have a 80GB 7200rpm hard drive and a combo drive with no further details. you can only use two additional devices one 3.5 inch external and 5.25 inch external bays.
B. Assuming that two devices are already IDE devices, that will leave you two additional IDE and two SATA device.

1. Turn off your computer before plugging any additional device and proceed with cautuion.
2. Add the additional 40GB Maxtor IDE hard drive, you will have to mount the drive into the casing and put some screw to lock or use tool lesslock if its present. (Check the jumper if its a master or slave) if you have configured the 40GB drive as master and you're going to add additional IDE drive you have to put the jumper in slave header.
3. Now put the IDE cable to the hard drive and to the IDE2 of the mother board mount firmly. (you cannot mount the IDE cable if it is in the wrong position)
4. Next the four pin power from the power supply to the hard drive. (you cannot mount the power cable if it is in the wrong position)
5. Power On your computer and press Delete or F2 to access bios, proceed to the option boot priority select your Combo drive as first boot, next your 80GB Hard driver, press F10 save.
6. Power On your computer and check your 40GB hard drive through device manager.
7. Time to add your new hard drive through disk management, so you will be able to see your new drive from your computer. I forgot how WIN XP recognize new hard drives especially the fresh one.

Hopefully this information helps.
Feel free to ask, so I can clarify things.
Thank you for using FixYa.

How do I delete all the info backed up on my irocks external hard drive?


Usually hard drive disks are erasable so long as was an an empty space. However, the type of setting chosen during data encription causes the situation of erasability. For example, using an external harddrive disk as back up media storage media has specific requirements. The computer provides an integral means of least being compromised where data permanent encription may have been the options available during backup copying. The compoter provides the procedures of recording data into any connected external devices. Once the external device is reconnected to the computer, the options of requesting the user to either erase what has already been copied becomes one of the several displayable promps. Also, backup disks usually on connection to the computer assumes a necessity to restore to functioning mode. However, a least malfunctioning computer would simply display prompts asking the computer user to perform the most recent backup, or disregard because of least disfunction recognised from the system. Attempting is erase what has already been recorded becomes appropiate whenever the computer recognises any curroption of the files. A prompt is display asking to fix errors soon after connection. The computer user simple chooses to restore to default functionality the external hardrive. Amongs the options usually provided of the program prompt are format, delete, restore, or backup computer files once connection is recognised. keep in mind that, an external hard disk may be default rrecordable proving no options of erasing. Refer to the hard disk drive user guide as reference to achieve the process. Also, the user guide would have specified if the device is capable of alternations or not.

Maxtor Hard drive tries to work


I had this problem also. It was either dropped or something fell on it. You have to get it repaired or a new one. If you have VERY important information that cannot be replaced, consider a data recovery service from your local stores.

Good luck with your Drive.
