Kroll Ontrack to recover the data. They still have the drive and it's been about a month now. They told me it would cost anywhere from $700 to $2000 to recover the data if they could. The last status update they gave me was that parts were on order. I'm still hoping they can recover the data. Since it's been so long I'm sure I'm looking at 2K range now.
The deal with my drive was this...
I bought a 2TB USB3 Seagate external drive from Sam’s club to use to consolidate some data on my home computer and the damn thing failed a day after getting it. I moved my data to it and then rebuilt the original drive(s) by doing the factory restore on it or formatting. I then went to move everything back and noticed that the external drive doesn’t show up in my computers. I tried the drive on a different system and it doesn’t work. I noticed that it makes clicking sounds about 4 or 5 times when you first plug it in and then stops spinning.
I keep all our finances, health and all family records on our PC for the past 20 years. I rotate 3 external hard drives with different backup software on each and keep 1 in the safe at all times. I couldn't imagine losing all that data. Saw way too many customers faces that lost their data! :-(
