I recently bought a new 1TB external hard drive and stupidly moved my computer too fast and the drive fell on the floor. Needless to say it no longer works. It makes a clicking noise, lights up for about 10 secs when I plugged it into my computer than dies. I don't need to recover any info on it, but I just want it to work, as I just bought it. Can it be fixed or am I better off buying a new one. Thanks for your help.
Since *I don't need to recover any info on it, but I just want it to work, as I just bought it*
, it would be in your best interest to return for exchange. I would also recommend that you do not provide details as to *what happened* to the drive as it may void the warranty.
