Dropped External Drive
Aug 7, 2012

Has anyone had experience in a dropped external harddrive. If so, were data recovery specialists successful in recovering your data? Mine still spins, but is not recognized even by disk utility (except every 20 minutes or so it will show up for a few minutes). A friend of mine tried "SpinRite" it did not recognize it, and he took it from the case and placed it in a HD reader... also no success, except twice it would show up then go away.

Just curious if anyone else has ever had a similar situation, that came out, well, good. I am sending it away to a data recovery specialist... and Im feeling so worried that theres nothing that can be done.
