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!
