Hi Fairly new 1TB drive (WD1001) I've been using for backup, has about 500g on it. Hooked up externally via USB adapter and external power source (kit). Worked great for some time. Windows 7 Home Premium All of a sudden refuses to run, sounds like the drive mechanism is stuck. Buzzes intermittently like it's trying to run but is stuck. Any way short of paying some shop an exhorbitant amount to pull the data off? I.e. is there available any device that's within the price range of the average home user? I had some data retrieved a number of years ago by a shop and I know there has been special - very expensive - equipment and software available for some years but was hoping somebody had developed something that was more affordable, maybe even a DIY for a mechanically experienced person? Or, short of that, any recommends for a reasonably priced shop? Thanks!!
