Last week I dropped the hdd ( an old Conner CT210; 10 GB ) of my girlfriend, it fell down and guess what - it’s broken. ( we wanted to transfer all data to her laptop because her pc is defective )
If I attach it to my computer the bios still detects it correctly, but the only thing I hear is some spinning, strange noises and thats it. Then it stops. Even my own system refuses to boot if her drive is attached, the system locks up after drive detection of the bios. The problem is now that the data must be recovered because there are essential files for her work on the drive… a professional solution would cost around 1500 â‚¬ - not really a solution also because my liability insurance does not pay the data recovery, only the value of the hdd:( .
Does anyone of you have any idea what I could do or try??
