M8 has a 1000 gig hard drive (sata) which is less then 6 months old
today it started making a tapping sound (pc shop told him the ball bearings have gone and offered him a new version of the same harddrive)
the thing is he has lost all the data on his hard drive (when he plugs it in the hard drive makes the weird noise etc but thats it )
the thing is i am sure we all understand that @ sometime we lose data etc and we learn to back up and move on, but on his hard drive he has pictures of his daughter (who passed away not long ago) so the data on this harddrive means the world to him
he was told by the pc shop there is a way to take the hard drive apart and swap the internal disk over with the new workign hard drive, anyone no if this is true ?
does anyone no on a hard drive this size what data recovery will cost, as i am going to get it done if need be,
any help or ideas would be great
