The moment you drop the hard drive, an unquestionable panic seems to overpower your senses. Data stored in hard drives are susceptible to lose, and the hard drive starts making noise. If in case it happens to you make sure not to tamper with the hard drive, it may lead loss of data beyond recovery. Dropping is the cause a hard drive may suffer damages. For instance, the internal circuitry like platters, heads, and firmware may get damaged. A dead hard drive does not return the access calls. In this situation, you cannot try the software. However, you can approach data recovery service providers. Only they can help you to get back your lost data from dead hard drive.
