And one day you turn on your PC and instead of watching your favorite OS loading, you notice a weird noise from inside... Only to find out that your HDD with all your priceless data is FUBAR. The system cannot recognize the volume, let alone this funny mechanical noise which feels like stabbing your heart with cold steel. And the other days you postponed the backup process only to go out and drink beers... And now what?
Well, before you go down with depression symptoms, you can watch this extremely helpful video from Educ8s. He faced a similar situation and he visited a data recovery center. He was told that he has to give an arm and a leg to recover his data, so he got his HDD and went back home. Being a creative mind and most of all A SPARTAN, he decided not to give up and give it a go... And so he did!
What he discovered was that the head of the HDD had stuck. After some short googling he found the solution and managed to recover most of his data. And he was kind enough to share it with us in this video. Great work!
