A truly sad day and not having any luck with External HD Please help

I have an external hard drive with includes photographs of alocal young man who has just been killed in a motorcycle acident. I am the only one with pictures that i let the family have of him on a racing circuit and one of my pics was used for the custom coffin, he was only 18 years old.

I am in the middle of doing a memorial book and this morning hard drive wont work, continuous flashing, hard drive clicks but not recognised, heartbroken and the family will be to.

Dont know what to do or where to turn, please any advise urgently needed.


Truly sad to lose a persons life and not have their pictures to remember them :cry:

Try checking if the drive shows on Disk Management?

If it does you can look for a data recovery software and retrieve the files
