HDD fell on the floor
Hi bro! My HD fell on the hard floor off of the top of my PC (from 30 cm height) and now is making this noise: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ubcYdHxazIU&feature=plcp and of course its not recognized by windows... What do you think the mechanical damage may be? I dont have access to data recovery services here in mexico... Where are you located? can I buy the tools and try to do it myself? that is, if you think its the damaged head... the info is not mission critical its just family photos and mp3s but its somewhat valuable to me! Thank you very much for your time and help!
If the data from your storage is really important, I suggest asking for help specialist. You can send this case to me via FedEX, DHL or similar post company.
I quite sure about your storage now has damage heads assemble and probably has a scratches on surfaces too. Data recovery in this case is not simple task even for professional specialist.
