Hi, I could use some opinions on my situation:
A small PC speaker dropped on my powered hard drive (WD30EURS). Is there any chance it didn’t cause a head crash? Is there any chance it might be fixable without using expensive data recovery companies?
When i plug it in it still seems to spin up, yet it appears it’s struggling and my PC tends to boot up slowly (OS isn’t on this disk, it was only used as storage). At first, after the accident, everything seemed to work fine, but soon the disk started taking longer time to access the files and after a short time my PC stopped detecting the drive…
Any help and thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.
