I have been using a SimpleTech Hard Drive 750gb(external, usb 2.0) for 5-6 months now. It never had any probs until yesterday when i turned on my pc as usual and my hdd didnt show up in computer (btw i'm using win 7). it showed up on device manager and the disk management console but not as unallocated. it just showed that it was a healthy primary partition (i have 1 partition only). today it showed up on computer but when i tried to open it it didn't there wasn't any error message but it just woudnt open. i have a lot of important data on it(420gb) so formatting is not an option. is there any way how i can retore my hdd back to normal?
ps. When it starts it emits a clicking sound then it becomes a grinding sound.
is there any way to recover my data??? ANY WAY?????????????????????????????????????
Pls. can any1 help me out??
