Recovering from a dead HDD? Answered
I have an external HDD (Freecom 400GB) and it seems to be dead now. It hasn't been used in about 6 months and might have been damaged during a house move. It doesn't seem to be drawing any power and spinning up. There is power, as the internal LED is active, but the drive itself is not responding at all. There is no movement.
Is there any way to recover its contents? The drive was used as an 'archive' of all our family photos covering about 20 years :S
