How to recover data from Seagate Momentus 7200.4 which is not detected and makes faint beeping noise
I have a 250GB Seagate Momentus 7200.4 hard drive from my laptop which has stopped working for about three months ago. It is not spinning at all and makes repeatedly faint beeping noise when plugged in to any computer. It is not even being detected by the BIOS and computer freezes when plugged in. I have got almost 150GB of critical data stored in it and really want to know what exactly is the problem with my hard drive and if my data is recoverable or not. I live in Bethesda and need recommendation on the best recovery companies nearby.
According to the situation mentioned here there might be any of the two possible damages occurred to your Seagate Momentus 7200.4 hard drive.
- Read/Write Heads are not assembled correctly
- Spindle Jammed
In both cases, your HD requires a proper examination by a data recovery expert inside a professional Certified Clean Room. If the Read/Write Heads are not parked correctly, multiple try to power up your HD might create resistance between heads and platters – causing further damages to the Heads and the surface area. Some hard drives also create faint beeping noises when the spindle is jammed and not allow the platters to spin.
If your data is really very important then further attempts to fix the problem and providing power to your damaged hard drive is not recommended. Disk Doctors is a well-known firm who provide data recovery services in Bethesda. They have professional clean room facility available and can successfully recover data from hard drives having same issues as yours.
