    Hard disk data recovery

    I have a seagate 1 TB External desktop HDD bought 2 years back.

    The hardisk fell down few days ago and my computer doesnt recognise the HDD anymore and the hardisk makes humming sound.

    The data is very important to me.. it has music and photos & videos

    1. Can anyone suggest the best method to get the data recovered (any company?)
    2. what would they charge if I would want 700gig data recovered from 1 tb hdd.

    who are the best data recovery company/services.

    Thanks in advance
    Rajesh

    [FONT=Verdana]If you can't afford the data recovery service you could always try some of the software utilities out there to see if they can access the hard disk - here's one to consider trying.

    Also have you tried the hard disk in another enclosure, just in case the enclosure has a fault rather than the hard disk - just something else to consider.

    Thanks ! but i am worried about opening the casing that i may damage it further...

    Also the laptop is not showing the drive for my external hdd, it just makes humming sound when connected, can i still use a software? even if the hdd is not recognised, how is that possible.... can someone explain me please?

    Take the HDD out of the external enclosure and try connecting it direct into a PC, sometimes the enclosures do fail and the HDD is ok. Removing it from the enclosure should not cause any further damage to the HDD.

    Unless you can actually detect the HDD then recovery software is useless.
