WD Passport Hard Drives have stopped working

When a hard drive breaks down we often need to get the files off the hard drive, but if the hard drive is no longer working how do we do it?? The answer is to go to sites that can tell us what to do and offer good data recovery advice – one that we recommend i Recover Deleted Data at http://www.recover-deleted-data.co.uk/

Data recovery software to recover files:
I recently stupidly quick formatted my external HDD WD My Book 1TB (about 800GB of Data). I’ve tried to recover my files using Remo Recover and restored a large amount of them but they are all corrupt and unreadable. I wondered if in doing this i’ve screwed my chances of getting the data because the “recovered” files were saved back onto the same drive so has that killed their “ghost” files? is there a possibility of still retrieving my files?

Leeds HDD that has been to a data recovery company: 2.5’’ WD 500GB, WD5000LPVX-75X0TT0. I have this diagnosis already: ‘storage medium has damaged reading heads and the recording surface of the plate’ I need to recover about 5 folders from desktop. Not a big amount of files but ones which will cause me to have to work all weekend if I don’t get them back.
I live in Harrogate near Leeds and am coming into Leeds city centre at the weekend. I can get close to Gelderd Road.

This enquiry describes a motor problem with the hard drive: I’ve a WD passport that won’t open and I’d like you to retrieve all the data off it so I can continue to use the data. I have a new hard drive that it can all go on. Portable External HDD (Western Digital 500gb) , which has stopped reading. Motor still spinning, but not responding.

London – This one describes and electrical HDD fault: Dead HDD. I have replaced the PCB, and the drive spins, so I want to move the BIOS from one PCB to another (I have numerous PCBs), but my soldering skills aren’t up to the task. Can you move the BIOS from one PCB to another? I live in Hammersmith, so its easy for me to get to your Chiswick premises, or any general London address.

WD drive with bad sectors?: Transferred work from an external hard drive that seemed to be having issues connecting all the time onto a new western digital hard drive. I did this by cutting and pasting everything onto the seagate hard drive. I plugged into laptop and tried several others and it wasn’t registering with any of the computers. The tech guy at work looked at it and said there was an issue. He tried ornament in severs computers and then suggested taking it apart and trying to reinstall it. This was unsuccessful and that it was completely useless. now I have a faulty hard drive that has been taken apart and all
Of my work is on it and he other hard drive is empty. Is there any way to resolve and recovering my work?

Beeping hard drive – therefore broken motor: My external hdd WD Passport fall on the wooden floor from approx 2m by accident. When connected into usb port, start beeping couple times and nothing recognised. I guess there is some problem with reading head inside or rotor. Could you pls make me data recovery? Not all, just some sensitive data ( I will specify path to important folders later).

Recover Deleted Data’s file retrieval service is available throughout the UK, including in Harrogate, Leeds and Chiswick, London.
