Oof.. that's not good.
I would take that hdd to your local data recovery center. If the data is recoverable at all, be prepared to fork over some cash.

Need clarification question: do you mean that the lap fell on the floor from the table and now does not work, but the HDD seems to be undamaged?

OR.....do you mean that that lap is damaged and the HDD is physically damaged as well and non-functional?

 If you take in for professional recovery, that's going to be expensive.  Before doing that I'd buy a $20 enclosure, put the hard drive in it, plug it into the USB port on a working PC and see if you can access the data.  I take it you don't have a backup for that data?  If not, I hope you've learned why you should.

 

 Good luck.


Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

As long as the hard drive can be connected to computer, the data might be able to be recovered by some recovery software like Recuva or Easeus data recovery. But if it is physically damaged, things would be much more complicated as indicated above. You can upload the screenshot of the computer when the hard drive is connected.

Take your damaged HDD (hard disk drive) and connect it to a good computer; this is easily done with a desktop computer, if using a laptop you will need an external case to mount the hard drive in.  If the computer finds it and assigns a drive letter in Explore, you can get your data off of it that way. If the computer cannot find the drive it is mechanically damaged. It will cost a huge amount of money to have a professional company get the data off it, so that is where your decision will be.

Hard drive connected perfectly after cleaning it with manage drives. with 2 to 3 recovery softwares, softwares reject to recover data. I think i should make my mind that data will not recover.

I have also faced this problem. But no need to worry about the data. Data can be recovered. Take your hdd to a data recovery agency and get your complete data.

Try this:

 

1) connect the bad hard drive to a PC via USb enclosure.

2) download the liveCD of parted magic (you can boot this live distro from a CD or from a USB key)

3) try to create an image of the bad disk with ddrescue ( http://html5.litten.com/windows-file-recovery-series-part-4-recover-files-from-a-bad-hard-drive/ )

4) you can then try to analyse the .dd image with various software.

 

I am still new around here, but if you can ddrescue to create an image of your hard disk, there might be a chance you can recover something.

Spinrite from Steve Gibson over at grc.com may be able to repair or recover dataf from your drive. He's got a video that explains what it does at: https://www.grc.com/sr/whatitdoes.htm

 

It's $89.00 but way cheaper than a data recovery company will charge. Their tech support is very good and responsive.

I worked for a short time for a company that specialized in recovering data from physically damaged hard drives.

They disasembled the drives down to the platters.reinstalled the platters into their special machines and if not to damaged they could recover most of your data.  Very expensive tho, like in the $1000's of dollars.

Hi, remove your hard disk and use as an external drive to another working system. Utilize reliable recovery software on Windows system and restore all type of files. http://remorecover.com/Windows/ for clear information go through that link.
