External hard disk beeps and is not recognized

I'm sure you know it too. You have an external hard disk with important projects, like the bachelor thesis, the big project from work or other very important data. Especially if you have to transport the external hard disk, it can be damaged. This is very annoying if a transport or similar depends on the data on the external hard disk.

Very often damage to an external hard disk is caused by the hard disk falling down. This can happen in many different ways, either you dropped the hard disk yourself, a child accidentally dropped the hard disk while playing, or the hard disk was dropped in another way. This can cause your external hard drive to beep.

The "External hard drive beeps and is not recognized" error occurs very often. The reason that an external hard disk beeps is usually due to mechanical damage. The hard drive beeps to let you know that such damage has occurred. This mechanical damage is caused by the hard drive falling.

After such mechanical damage, the hard disk is no longer usable. The beeping of the hard drive is a sign that the computer can no longer recognize the external hard drive. External hard drives beep for this reason.

But what do you do when the hard disk beeps? Unfortunately, it is very difficult as a layman to repair a hard disk with mechanical damage, because the technology is very complex. If you try to fix the error "external hard drive beeps and we don't recognize it" yourself, you will probably lose all your data. This would only make your situation worse, as your data would be lost forever.

a) Initial analysis 

The speed of the initial analysis depends on the fare booked (basic or express analysis).

If you are not in such a hurry, then book the "Basic Analysis" when filling out the contact form and we will carry out the initial analysis for you free of charge within 5 working days. At this point we will only charge you the postage costs for the return of your data medium. 

If you are interested in a faster presentation of the first analysis results and a clear idea of the data recovery effort based on these results, we recommend booking the "Express Analysis" for 100 EUR per device. Then you will usually have a clear idea of the data recovery options available the next working day. 

b) Data recovery

After the first analysis we present you the result in writing and an estimate of the expected data recovery effort. You always remain the master of the procedure and decide whether you want to have the data recovery carried out or have your defective data medium returned.  

The costs of the data recovery itself depend on the effort of the data recovery. We distinguish between the three service types "Standard" (349 EUR), "Clean Room" (650 EUR) and "Clean Room Plus" (950 EUR). Details can be found in the diagram below. Usually this step will be completed within 3 working days. Deviations from this may occur in times of high workload.
