OK, before you take it to a specialist in physical drive damage for recovery, have you tried it on another computer? The most important thing now is for a computer to at least pick it up in "My Computer" and assign it a Drive letter such as E:/

If you can get that, there are a few free programs such as data recovery software online that can help you retrieve all files and fix sectors of the hard drive. good luck

Try hooking up the hard drive to another computer, what happens? Which version of Windows are you using? Was the external drive ever connected to a MAC?

    Pop in to your local PC shop. You should be able to buy a new cable relatively cheaply.

    Can't access the files anymore. how can I retrive them?


    If the hard drive itself is damaged, your files may be permanently lost. There are companies that will attempt to recover your files from the drive for a fee... that usually involves sending them your drive with pre-payment. They will often disassemble your drive in a clean-room environment and transfer your disks to another identical drive then try to access the data. If the disk surfaces are damaged, files on the damaged areas are usually not retrievable...

    If you purchased the new case, as the company recommended, then properly moved your drive into the new case, it is likely that you will have to resort to the recovery scenario above.

    Problems with Hard Drive


    Hi,

    Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

    T your concern:
    • initially, pls verify that it is indeed an external storage problem rather than a laptop USB issue by trying other USB devices and determine if they are recognized and working;
    • disassemble the enclosure of the Acomdata external hard drive and remove the actual hard drive;
    • you would need the use of a 2nd PC, a desktop that could accommodate the HD from the Acomdata (IDE or SATA);
    • install the HD from the Acomdata as a Secondary Master or Slave internally to the 2nd PC;
    • boot the 2nd PC and determine if the HD from the Acomdata will be recognized as a local drive;
    • chances are that the partition of the HD from the Acomdata was messed up. This would explain the blinking blue light;
    • download and install a file recovery program. An example is GetDataBack (unfortunately not a freeware but DEMO is available) and do a recovery. It would take some time based on the size of the HD from the Acomdata;
    • temporarily save the recovered data in the 2nd PC. You can burn this likewise into a DVD backup should the 2nd PC be capable of that;
    • after recovery, re-partition and format the HD from the Acomdata while still attached to the 2nd PC;
    • should the re-partition and format be successful, you can transfer back the temporarily saved recovered files;
    • a nice, simple, fast and safe partitioning/formatting software is Partition Magic (unfortunately not a freeware but FREE TRIAL is available).
    • should the re-partition and format be not successful, you can replace only the HD and/or claim warranty.
    Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

    Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    External hard drive will not turn on


    Try a new enclosure, the case is just that. A hard drive cannot actually repaired. You cant open it and fix it. It's either reliable and functioning or not. Purchase a new enclosure and test the old drive. Data recovery should be the last option..most places charge a down payment on a car, and most of the time ( in my 12 years ) its the cheap enclosure.

    Keep me posted.
