I dropped my Toshiba hard drive and now it buzzes for about 6 seconds, goes off for 2 and tries again. It eventually goes off and stops trying. The light is on while it is trying. Any suggestions? I have all my family photos and videos on here.... Would kill me to lose it. HELP!

If it really is your only copy, and you want to get them back you will likely need a very expensive data recovery service, as the drive very probably has sustained catastrophic physical damage.

If you have another copy of the data anywhere else make immediate back ups to multiple media, like copies to DVDs and stick them in a safety deposit box. Cloud storage is also a good option.
