So the worst case has happened and your hard drive is dead – and you didn’t back up! Don’t panic just yet, there may still be hope!
This article on the popular mechanics website takes you through the steps of how to recover data from a dead hard drive. If the components in your drive are still working, you can actually recover the data yourself. (And even if there is mechanical damage, the pros may be able to work their magic and get your files back).
We hope this article serves you well, but remember – all hard drives fail eventually, so next time, make sure you back up!
