Recover Data from an Old External Hard Disk which PC Failed to Recognise

Dec.16, 2016—iCare Recovery received a feedback from a user called Neil who had used iCare Data Recovery Pro to recover photos, videos, documents and files from an old main powered external hard disk when PC failed to recognize this drive:

"Thank you for your fast reply
All sorted
I used iCare to recover data from an old (10yro) mains powered external hard disk. We hadn't backed up the old files onto our newer external drive as it turned out. It was a mix of photos, video, and various documents, approx 150GB in total. The PC failed to recognise this drive when we tried to access it after a number of years sitting idle, it appeared to be a hardware issue. I tried a number of recovery software packages to no avail, the best of these recovered just a handful of files. Then I tried the free trial download of iCare and instant success! So I went ahead and purchased the home licence and let iCare do it's stuff. Easy to use, and easy to manipulate the recovered files. In the end iCare recovered just about everything, all but a handful of badly corrupted files. And I had almost given up. So very happy!
I hereby give permission to iCare Recovery to use my words as a satisfied user.
Cheers
