I accidentally dropped my external Hitachi life studio desk plus HDD accidentally dropped and the USB flash drive was broken, now the HDD doesn’t load in my computer and has a beep and a click, is it any chance to fix it? Or since it doesn't shows in my computer, what could be your advice to recover the data?

✔ Best Answer
I'm afraid you have "killed" your external hard drive. It's mechanically broken inside and cannot be fixed. The clicks and beeps are made by the read/write head which has crashed into the hard disk and is jammed. The hard disk itself will also be scored and scratched. Data will have been destroyed.

The data (or some of it) can only be recovered by sending the drive to a data recovery service and that is very, very expensive.
