Corrupt HDD

Recommended Posts

Hi, how's it going!

A friend of mine apparently got his HDD corrupted and he has his thesis on it. 

I am just wondering what his options might be at this point? His laptop is back working with a different hard drive, and the hdd in question is on the side at the moment. 

Any help appreciated!

Thanks!

No personal experience but there are plenty of free or paid data recovery tools you can use, though you'll probably need to be able to hook up the drive to a functioning computer, probably a desktop of some sort. Could be as simple as a corrupt boot record with the drive and data otherwise 100% intact.

No guarantees it'll work though, and if it doesn't, the next step would be professional data recovery services, but do note that they may charge hundreds, or in some case potentially thousands of dollars for the job depending on how bad the failure was. Often this will be the only realistic option if the disk is physically damaged.

Ok, guys, thank you very much. 

I will relay the info. I did see some recovery tools online when I was browsing the problem, and I hope his things are not totally lost.

In either case, thanks a bunch! 👍
