hope all is good with everyone.
I have an external hard drive which i have been using for almost 2 years now. Its attached to my laptop. Normally i back up my data to the desktop hard drive but recently i have been abroad and haven't had the chance to back anything up.
I came back and found that the external hard drive which once used to work fine started to make a distinctive clicking sound. First, I thought it might be the case making the noise... 2 days later the HDD is not even coming up on the computer. I switch it on and the computer recognizes that there is a usb device attched but the HDD doesnt come up under my computer.
It is very important for me to recover the data that was on it. Its my life's work so i would appreciate any help...
