i've crashed quite a few hard drives before and it sounds like that but mine usually made a noise like a grinding or something constantly. a good one will run smoothly when they start up until they start reading and writing... the ones that went bad on me didnt... as soon as i powered them up they would make a constant noise... yours might still be good. but as far as a shop doing a data recovery... that i dont know sorry
