Broken External Hard Drive 

I accidentally dropped my external hard drive. And now it won’t spin and is unresponsive. I have 7 years worth of photos,  videos and files in it. I backed up my mobile phones and laptop in the hard drive. I am devastated to say the least.

I called a number of data recovery shops in Dubai, the fee for the service range from 350-1500 AED. Before I sent it, I tried a couple of PCs, ports and laptops. I also changed the cable but no luck. I also opened the hard cover to see if there is something noticeably damaged. And after 3 hours I gave up and finally sent it to the shop.

Waiting seems like purgatory!

Lesson learned: Back-up data in two different drives.
