If your data is valuable to you, and your drive is making any unusual noise, do not power it on. Take it to a certified data recovery specialist to have it evaluated.
Professional hard drive data recovery requires equipment designed to perform specific hard drive recovery tasks. While some tasks can be recovered safely by software, most jobs require knowledge of file systems, service area firmware, vendor commands, and the proper tools to implement that. Data Recovery San Antonio uses the industry standard PC-3000, DeepSpar DDI4, HddSurgery tools, and a class 100 cleanroom along with other industry specific tools.
Hard drive data recovery should ideally begin with a professional evaluation. The reason for this is, if your hard drive is experiencing certain failures, attempting to access the drive can cause permanent data loss. Never format, initialize, or run CHKDSK on any failing hard drive.
