Is my data gone or is this fixable?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi! I bumped my HDD (ST31500341AS) and now it's making exactly the same noise:
YouTube- Dead Seagate ST31500341AS 1.5Tb Hard drive
Is there any easy way to fix this or my data is gone on this disk?

If the hard drive is working yes, you'd probably have to destroy the entire thing to "delete" the data. How to fix it? Well, you can google it; or I can but it's not really that hard so I'd reply with http://lmgtfy.com/

To fix it, you'd have to take it apart or try the above ^^^. Next time backup your important data on a flash drive/external hd. ( and NO, Music/Movies/Games aren't really "important" to me anyways, so I just put what I really need on my 16gb flash drive so if that happens I'll just RMA/get a new drive )
