Jul.30, 2016—iCare Recovery received a feedback from an iCare Data Recovery Pro user called John who had used iCare software to recover most of lost files from an external hard drive that was dropped and failed:
"iCare team…I originally purchased iCare recovery in 2012 based on reviews of your software online and the demo version. I had an external hard drive that was dropped and failed. After power was supplied to the hard drive, your software was able to recover most of the files. Although the file tree structure and naming convention as not retained, most of the files retained enough details to be easily reorganized…"
Here is the original email screenshot:
In daily use, sudden dropping is really possible to make an external hard drive with important data failed and inaccessible, especially when this USB hard drive is still used in data transferring or storing. However, that doesn’t indicate that your external drive is really mechanically corrupted and could not be restored. Oppositely, as long as this drive gets no serious physical damages, you do get chances to fix the drive problems and also recover failed and dropped USB hard drive photos, videos and files back with reliable data recovery software, like iCare Data Recovery Pro. Hence, no matter how this external drive shows on your PC, merely go stop rewriting it and run iCare Data Recovery Pro to recover your lost drive files.
