Hello, i'm having problems with data recovery if anyone could help.
Basically the hard drive was in a laptop which was dropped. The hard drive started clicking but stoped and appeared to be working.
When the hard drive is inside the laptop it sometimes will get to the windows logo when booting but keeps freezing. Other times it just says boot failed.
I have tried many things to recover the data. I plugged it into my desktop(windows 7) but it says hard drive must be formatted. I have tried some programs that are made to recover data but they have all failed ether freezing up, saying there is no drive, or just giving a lot of errors.
I booted my computer with Linux(mint) and i could see all the files and access them manually but any recovery programs on Linux also failed. I can manually get files off of it and on to the local hard drive but after a few minutes it keep giving an error message that it can not copy file and then freezes and having to restart it. I would have to copy each file individually which would take way to long.
If anyone could help me get these files back thank you.
