Failed HDD Problems

Here are a collection of questions I’ve been sent recently and links to answers I have found.

Hi there I’ve got a Freecom Classic SL 250GB Drive which has recently failed and is making clicking sounds when its booted up.
I don’t suppose you have a rough quote of how much this would cost to repair, if repair was possible?

Dell Inspiron N5030 hard drive failure, 320GB.
Many years old, 15,000 hours according to diagnostics by a company.
I would like data recovery on files please.
Was quoted £130 by a company.
How much would this be?

I have lost access to the data on my laptop hard drive (Seagate 750GB) and I would like to recover all data on it. Please could you tell me the price for standard recover data.

Hi my 500GB harddrive has failed. On turning on the machine the hardrive makes a clicking sound but windows will not load. In system Bios the harddrive does not appear. I am based in Darlington and obviously you are not far away. Is there any idea of the cost involved and how long it would take? How would you send any data recovered?

Samsung Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB Drive. ZFS Filesystem.
Disk appears to spin up ok, no strange sounds. Although it’s ZFS it’s the only disk in the pool, which is why this is a problem. When the computer, or any computer with the disk in starts, POST fails when looking at AHCI port#0 31000ms timeout. I would prefer email communication, because of University.

I have a Samsung hard drive that I’ve been backing my photographs up on. However, I’ve tried various computers and a different lead and the device doesn’t seem to be recognised.
