External Hard Drive Not Working

  CHIGGERS 18:41 07 Feb 2007


I recently dropped my 300GB external hard drive from A height of about 3 feet onto a tiled surface. Now when I turn it on, all I can hear is it trying to initiate for about 20 seconds and then it seems to get stuck and I can hear a clicking noise about every .75sec and nothing registers in 'My Computer.

Does anyone know anything that I can do to retrieve this data. All of my photos for the past 5 years are on here including our wedding and honeymoon pics, even if someone knows of a company who provide a sevice getting data from damaged drives I would be really grateful

I've read about Ontrack in a couple of magazines but they're not cheap click here

After saying that none of the data recovery specialists are cheap.
