If your hardrive has crashed you can take it to the Geek Squad and they can extract the files for you. However, it is pretty [sign in to see URL]

Re: hard drive failure


My experience with Geek Squad and failing computers usually results in, "well you should probably just buy a new one because it'll cost you around the same amount to get it fixed."

Re: …


I had this happen with my external. Just one [sign in to see URL] more lights. I called around to some repair shops and most said the same thing,"If it ain't spinning there's not much I can do."

One guy said it would require taking it apart in a clean room and would run me upwards of $500. I'm still considering it since there are over 50 GBs of music on it (all bought and paid for).

Good luck, Monkey. Hopefully you've got enough life to make it work. They say you can put in the freezer over night and reinstall it and you can get a few minutes of function to click and drag over all your folders. Didn't work with mine, though.

Re: hard drive failure


Actually, dont take it to Geek [sign in to see URL] are worthless. I just used them for the first time cuz i bought an extended warranty from them for my laptop and they still charged me for repair costs. What sucks even more is that it doesnt seem like they did anything cuz i still get the same problems as before.

LOL. I don't normally do "side" jobs, but I swear most of the people I end up doing crap for are those that were victimized by Geek Squad, the problem wasn't fixed and their out a bunch of $$.

I get a fair amount of referrals from these [sign in to see URL] I agree, don't use Geek Squad...
