Western Digital data recovery

without comments

WD logoWestern digital HDD part of myworldbook NAS doesn’t seem to stay up long enough to copy data. Im looking for data recovery near to Lombard Street in London.

I have a 1TB Western Digital WD hard-drive that has died (ie, I cannot communicate with it at all, or see it in disk management on windows).
Are you able to retrieve the data on it? I have a spare 1TB hard-drive that you could use to copy the data to. Do you know roughly how much this will cost?
Also, I am based in London and travel from Slough, what is the closest branch to Lombard Street?

I have a MacBook Air inside water has leaked. Since then the WD SSD is not recognised on the laptop or on a external laptop.
I would like to ask what is the range os prize for recovering the data in that type of cases.

My external hard drive stopped working today whilst it was plugged into the computer – it began making a clicking sound.
i was given a quote today by a company on Bridge Hall Lane Bury for £300-500 to recover the files on the hard drive.

Samsung D3 Station 2 TB, fell off a coffee table (which it had done once before) and now clicks and beeps twice then flashing HS light and won’t connect/ recognise in Windows.
It stores quite a bit of my music (1TB worth) and some other backups of pc’s i own (My documents things like that).
I would prefer to obtain all this back again if possible.

My Toshiba external hard drive was connected to my lap top when I accidentally pulled the cable from the USB port. My computer now does not recognise the hard drive and nor does my lap top. I am not worried about the drive, I just wish to recover the data it contained

I’m up in Manchester from London for a few weeks visiting a sick family member, I’ve brought over a WD Elements external hard drive with work on I need to do while I’m here…
P/N WDBU6Y0020BBK-05 S/N WX51A1588FJU when I connected to my laptop, it came up, then when I tried to open a file it froze the computer.. disconnected it, tried again, didn’t show up on the computer.. the computer recognises it’s connect but nothing shows up ? I took it to a local computer show, did the same with him, he said it was making a “chirping” noise, but not all the time.. He said that a data recovery company should be able to help.. so I hope you can help ?
not sure how long this process takes ? or how much it will cost ? please could you let me know ASAP

Western Digital Red Data Recovery

WD Red NAS hard drive recovery

The drive is a 2TB, Western Digital Red Drive that I have only had a few months, it was turned off when dropped from approximately 2 feet as I was taking it out of my HDD dock (after powering it down), intending on putting it in my new NAS which coincidentally arrived earlier today, the day I dropped the drive.
I picked it up carefully and checked it over (aesthetically it fine, at least to me) but when I tried to power it on the motor sounded like a siren – it was an electronic type of noise, not an actual siren, like the motor was being powered up and powered down very quickly in a siren type of fashion.
As soon as I heard it I shut it off and haven’t turned it on since as I don’t want to further the damage whatever it may be as I’m familiar with the anatomy of the HDD and how delicate they are internally.

I do have backups of the drive, however, there are some files that I don’t have backed up simply because they are recent additions to the drive and the schedule backup hadn’t backed them up yet (I didn’t have them in a RAID array with redundancy which I’m regretting now). I’m presuming these files lost until recovered (if possible) – these new additions are files that are not re-creatable thus I’m hoping they can be recovered?

Edinburgh Scotland, data recovery

HDD Information:
The drive is a 2TB, Western Digital, Red
Its current format is NTFS, used with a Windows based system (Windows 10, Pro, 64bit to be precise).
There are two partitions on the drive, covered below:
The 1st partition is my “Storage” partition, 200GB in size, which is used for storage of anything I feel needs archiving; pictures, videos, documents, installation media’s (typically older driver should I need to revert back to them, mainly for my laptop) and other such keeping (which admittedly needs organising into folders, they’re a bit scattered at the moment)
The 2nd partition is my media archive “The Arkc”, it’s the remainder of the drive in size, minus the 200GB for the above partition, where I store the final renditions of videos I have for my YouTube channels, along with relevant detail and thumbnails for these videos.
In total, there’s just under 1TB of storage used on this 2TB drive.
Is this something Data Clinic may be able to recover as I live in Edinburgh ? (see http://datareplayservices.com/western-digital-data-recovery-in-scotland/ for details about data recovery throughout Scotland).
