I dropped my hard drive from about 4 ft on a tile ground and now When I plug my hard drive into my Mac the light flashes for a couple seconds then it the light just stays on. My Mac won't read it anymore. Is there anyway to fix it? Nothing sounds loose or anything. I have a lot of personal and important data on it that I can't afford to lose..
If it isn't accessing when you plug it in chances are that it's dead. There are companies that will try to recover data from a broken hard drive, but they tend to be expensive and carry no guarantee of fully retrieving the data.
