If your hard drive has failed, why would you risk sending your drive for a £100 software recovery after being told that the clicking or beeping noises are indicative of a mechanical problem.
All too often being told a failed drive can cost £400 to £2000 for recovery is a shock and for most an unexpected and unwanted cost, but trying a software recovery when a mechanical recovery is need will only further the damage to the drive.
Get a free assessment from R3 before attempting a software recovery, just because the software appears to be running does not mean your data is safe, failed heads can grind into the platters if left long enough. And the data in those areas if definitely no longer recoverable.
They were very efficient and quick with regards retrieving the data from a HDD that was sent to them by our external IT company. Would recommend them for their efforts.
