This hard-drive failed a coupe of years ago when running Lightroom, and was making a ticking sound. I had it looked at at the time by Data Recovery Tips [http://data-recovery-tips.co.uk/] who were excellent and said the sound is caused by the heads moving back and forward from each extreme in attempt to read the data from the disk and felt that this was because the heads have degraded. At the time I couldn’t afford the recovery but would now like to have this recovered. Could you please provide a quote? Do you do no recovery no fee?
I’m having issues with a 2TB seagate 2.5 inch external drive. I recently had to move the drive into a new enclosure as the USB connection on the original Seagate case had failed. This replacement case worked for a good month or two however I’ve been having issues accessing the drive properly recently. Initially it would unmount itself randomly, however this soon progressed to not mounting at all. Then it became incredibly slow/unreadable by my Mac. I primarily use the drive for photo storage and it contains my Lightroom catalog data and backups. The vast majority of my recent work is on there. I have tried several times to check the drive with Apple disk utility but it either un-mounts or fails to be read. I have also tried copying data to a new drive but it will unmount before it can finish the transfer. It doesn’t appear to be making any strange noises and to my knowledge it has not been dropped. Wondering if you could give me a rough estimate for a repair? Or if I’m better to bring it in for appraisal and if there is a cost associated with this?
Hard drive has died (clicking) and I need important documents from it for my master’s thesis
Have tried to retrieve data from external drive today and got error message on two laptops – drive structure is corrupted, unable to read data. The laptops both see the drive, it appears in File Explorer, but them messages comes up when you click to access. Need to retrieve my Adobe Lightroom files.
I have a power connection problem with my hard drive (possibly a shorted diode). Its an old model with its own power supply. I would ideally like it repaired but would also be interested in a quote to just recover the data.
Please now contact via email as I will be in the office and unable to answer calls.
Believe the hard drive has been dropped – making a ticking noise.
