Hi about a month ago i bought a 500gb external hard drive from freecom. Unfortunately yesterday it fell off the top of my pc tower and hit the ground. It was fine, and it was still running fine. Now i get home from school and switch it on and it just keeps making a short beep sound and i can feel that the disk isn't spinning up + my computer doesn't at know its there. I unscrewed the stuff and took off the dumb label saying "warranty void" which probably wasnt the best option but i couldn't open it up so i decided to just leave it. (I basically thought i may be able to see if there is something loose inside, but i can't even get inside.) So have i totally broken this hard drive? Have i lost all my music albums and movies? What can i do to fix it? Can i fix it? Thanks for all replies, and if you need more information on in then please feel free to ask. edit - i probably didn't make it clear enough that after i dropped it - it was still working. Its just after i turned it off and tryed switching it back on it wouldn't work.
