If it was flash drive, then your data is probably fine. | Report abuse vegettonox September 27, 2012 11:55:56 PM If it is a normal external hard drive, it depends on the height you dropped it from and what it landed on. I have had drives that have fallen 3 or so feet onto carpet and been fine. If it fell 5 feet onto cement then your probably screwed. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Storage>Dropped hard drive> Related ressources: ForumDropped Hard drive ForumDropped a plate on my hard drive ...
