Research this and you find companies like Drivesavers.com They take your drive and need be put the platters into a working drive.
This is a lesson about backup. Many don't want to learn this lesson. They'll reply with "that's no help, tell me how to get my files." Again this is the lesson. I fear that today you can't teach backup. It must be learned.
friends hd stopped, he tried it in another pc , same deal .
How do you get the drive to work so you can recover the files ?
Please any ideas?
