I have 2 ST31000340AS 1 TB HDD. I am using First one as normal HDD and second one as backup. Today when I switch On my pc.... The bios took 2 mins to show any screen. After that a message appeared "No boot disk detected, Please insert a boot disk". First I thought my OS (Vista 64) is corrupted. So I tried to reinstall the OS. But Vista installation is not detecting any HDD? not even my backup HDD. So I checked the BIOS for any misconfiguration. I thought my mobo has some fault or some cable problem. I never thought that my HDD is dead, as I had full trust on Seagate. I am a seagate user since 10 yrs, even my first PC had 1 GB seagate HDD.
Then I tried this HDD on my other PC, ....... MY HDD is not detecting on this PC also? not even my Backup HDD? man.... ALL my DATA is gone? I cant afford 1200 USD for data recovery. As said by seagate, I should backup all my data which I did, but my backup HDD is also gone? Last night it was working absolutely fine. all my other HDDs are working fine then what happen to these HDDs?
I am in big loss.... and data recovery means 1200 USD or 60000 Indian Rupees.... heck man.. we cant afford it. Please find a cheap and best solution for recovery my data.
