im using an IOMEGA 200GB external hard drive, and when i switched the hard drive on, the computer di not recognise it as it usually does, instead an icon popped up saying 'new hardware found' when i leave it on then it tries to read , then it makes a distinctive click noise... i know its definitley broken , but im wondering if my files safe? can they be retrieved? if someone could let me know what the problem may be it would be greatly appreciated, i have many things on it that i would not like to lose. thanks for your time , simon
