Looking to see if I can save the data on these hard drives:

I have two hard drives:

SEAGATE (1 year old)
lights up, makes trickling water sounds but doesn't pop up on computer

WD (4 + years)
lights up, pops up in disk utility but can't be mounted to the computer or opened

Recovering files/seeing the relief of having data saved is more valuable and hence why I work in customer service resolving I.T issues.

PM for further details :)

Hello,
ill definitely be able to help with the WD drive, it sounds like its a partition problem, ill also see what i can do with the second Hard drive.

I would need local storage so i can copy the data.

The offer I put in is what ill start at, when the data is recovered then i will charge the budget price 100$ and if both drives are recovered ill take an additional 50$.

Take a look at my reviews I always go above and beyond, let me know ill be happy to help and I can do this task remotely :)

Hi Allegra

It's heart-breaking when you decide to throw out a hard drive that you know has important memories on it. It is always worthwhile trying to recover the data.

If you mail the drives to me (I'm in Brisbane), I'd be happy to test them and attempt to recover data. No promises though. There's only so much that can be done without a rebuild or very expensive professional data recovery processes.

I've not had too many hard drives refuse to give up their contents - but sometimes, even if data is recovered, some, most, or all of it can be corrupted and unusable.

I don't do this particular type of work to make a profit. I like to challenge myself. There are a lot of techniques that can be employed, and I have a number of software tools that use different approaches to access lost data.

I will not attempt anything destructive. I will return the drives to you (unless you tell me to dump them), and I will burn to DVD any files retrieved. If you'd prefer recovered data to be saved to USB drives, please include in the package you send me, the media you want me to use.

Mailing costs can be deducted from the quoted fee.

As an aside, if you think that there is data on the disks that is really important to you, there are services online that will extract the data for around $800 per drive. I assume that they swap out the platters and use another device to read the data. You may want to just go straight to such a service, if you can justify the cost.

Regards
Robert
