I have a Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 500GB drive. Long story short, the BIOS sees the drive, but states there is no boot device. I attempted to slave the drive to my laptop so I can copy off files/folders, but realized at that point I have a hardware failure. Drive will power up and sound like it will start, but then will click 5-6 times, and will sound as if it is slowly powering off.
That being said, I do need to recover files/folders from the drive. Does anybody in the Tom's Hardware community have any first hand experience or suggestion as to what company or provider they have had success (or at least a good experience) with? Any input would be appreciated. At this point, I'm above my skill level, and could use some advise.
