HI,
I have a 40 GB seagate hdd. few days back while It fell from my hands
and got on the floor with one of its corners ( where we put the power
cord ). Now the bios does not detect it. I have some of the most
infortant work of mine that can not get me any money but is very imp
to me.
Is there any hope, I have download a lot many soft but I dont know if
any soft can do anything untill the Bios is ready to detect it.
can anybody guide me to a window software that can recover data even
if the bios is not detecting the HDD.

Regards
Jaunty Edward

Hello, Jaunty:

Your hard drive has "fallen," in more ways than one. If it's badly
damaged, physically (as I strongly suspect it is), no software, alone,
can retrieve its data.

There are commercial data-recovery services, available, that employ a
combination of hardware/software techniques. Unfortunately, they tend to
be very expensive.

In the future, always back up your data -- and while you're at it, stop
being such a butterfingers, too. :-D

Good luck!


Cordially,

ontrack data recovery services!
not much you can do if the HD isn't BIOS detected - sounds like major
damage....
