I have a Buffalo Ministation Air HDWP500U3. Which wont load on a windows or MAc. I have ran a data recovery tool and can see there is still data on it. I copied some data on this had and then it started to become inaccessible and very slow reading. Then I tried to scan it and fixed some bads and copy the data to another one. I couldn’t copy much as it become more and more hard to access.
Now it is not visible in the system anymore.
It was opened by somebody else but didn’t manage to recover the data.
External iomega 500G drive failing to mount and clicking? contains approx 400G of data mainly image files and I’d like if possible for data to be recovered and transfered to new drive. I have two external hardrives about 5 years old
I have removed then from there external case because they were not powering up. I need to get all the data off them and out it one one haeddrive
Clicking noise, HDD not visible in system: WD30EZRX. With the Buffalo MiniStation I’m looking to find a decent data recovery company (Ed: Look not further!), and the files on the Iomega hard drive should be recoverable too. It’s a Seagate 1TB portable hard-drive and is only a month old. It was working fine until I unplugged it from one laptop and attached to it to another. Since then it hasn’t worked, it shows up in disk management as not initalised and shows a capacity of 0 bytes.
And now it’s started making a beeping noise when it’s plugged in. I’ve attempted to use recovery software but it’s no help because the drive doesn’t show up in the scan. Does this mean the data can’t be rescued ?
When HardDrive was connected it would hum / click, but PC would not recognise or connect.
I’ve opened the casing and noted that the hard-drive does not spin nor do the heads move from the centrally locked position. The hard-drive has photographs stored on them and i would dearly like to have them retrieved as cost effectively as possible, please.
Note: I’m trialing the services of Data Recovery Tips – an UK hard drive and phone recovery specialist. I’ll let you know how they get on in getting the data from the above storage devices back.
