    Default Data Recovery service

    My maxtor external hardisk gave up on me...... power is on but just not reading. I have lots of old photos and documents (scanned ) in there, anyone can recommend any data recovery centre to recover back the data? And how much do they charge? No need to advise me on the change of brand.........

    Any other remedy? I started the back up process a few weeks ago, but did not manage to do much as I was changing job and shifting house. Appreciate any help....... cheers~!

    Is the harddisk giving constant clicking sounds when powered on?
    U try plugging to another casing & see if it's working better.

    plug it out, put into the system is easiest, if possible, do a cloning even faster... maybe get a docking station.

    Do you mean that t is an external HDD? Does your computer recognize it as a HDD from BIOS? What about from Windows? Does the HDD attempt to read at all?
