Recent Problem Solved

Noisy Seagate FreeAgent Desk 1.5Tb external from Flight Centre Canada

I have a FreeAgent external box and it dropped from a small height. After the accident the computer didn't detect it anymore and it makes a noise like ticktock with quiet buzzing. The hard drive was removed from the external enclose and tested separately in computer repair shop.
The technician told me that the abnormal clicking sound from the hard drive is not a good sign. It's possible the spindle or reading heads may be damaged.

I thought I was going to lose my data. Thank God I was wrong.

Damaged Seagate FreeAgent Go external from Armen S. State College, PA USA

The hard drive is not spinning; there was a power surge during a storm.
The drive made clicking noises for a week, and then stopped spinning. Drive was unplugged and no further recovery attempts.

Thanks a lot! Armen

Defective HGST Travelstar Z5K1000-1000 1Tb external mobile from New Jersey Institute of Technology

The data access problems started with the computer slow down until its complete freeze. The black screen was following right after the booting screen which keeps resisting from starting the system.
Now we believe this error happens internally into the hard disk due to very faint but clearly noticeable clicking sound from the drive.

All requested files were completely recovered.
