External drive not detected, Static Charge Damage
Yesterday static charge from my body stopped my seagate external drive from working. I hear unusual clicking noise but not detected anymore. Anyone know if the data may have lost? Cheers.
Thanks guys, I am not going to touch this although I have exactly identical hard drive with same model and PN and going to use that as a donor. But will get it done by a data recovery company. Yes expensive, over £500. I had all my 15 years family photos duplicated on 3 drives and last week I sorted them all out and put them in this one drive. I was going to make a back up on another drive but this happened one day before I do the back up. Just my laziness..!
I hope the data is still available and this company can recover all the photos. It is not SSD so I hope Dan is spot on, I hope that’s the case anyway. Expecting a call from that company and will see what happens and will update guys. Appreciate for taking time to reply.
