[access-uk] Re: Data Recovery from damaged hard drive

Hi Geoff,

 

It's probably happened to most of us at one time or another; it happened to
me in 2003.

If the mechanics of the drive are OK then most likely a company will try
removing the drive from its enclosure and mounting it in a regular PC and
try running something like Spinrite to attempt recover of damaged sectors.
This software can do wonders however it is never wise to count on it.  If
the drive itself is damaged the prospects for wallet are not very good
assuming it is even possible to repair the drive.

I've just searched for "data recovery dead hard drive" and few pages came up
which talk about recovering data if the mechanics of the drive are still
functioning. Check them out they may be of some help. Good luck.

Search Google for

 

Data recovery

 

There are company who claim do recovery, no fee.

 

Probably best to start counting your losses.

I damage an external hard drive whilst it was actually transferring data, it
fell on the floor.

I am getting quotes' of hundreds of pounds from data recovery companies.

I can't even bring the hard drive up up on the computer it is so dead.

Any thoughts guys, can today get worse?

Jeff
