Recently ,the laptop was making a weird noise ,it was just getting louder and louder,I didn't mind it though.(I thought it was the fans hitting something)
But today it finally stopped! But when i fired up my laptop it doesnt show the HDD although the ssd was working.So im assuming that noise was the HDD.Any ways to fix this without opening the laptop?
(otherwise im just going to send it for repairs)
I tried the disk management thingy and it shows the ssd and the recovery and two others(one of them is called Disk 0 partition 1 and the other was WINRE_DRV.
I figured there was no backup of the backup . Data recovery of a drive can cost $250 and up. Here is how I backup my primary drive. I use FreeFileSync to create each backup which basically is folder to folder. I will backup the backup files to a DVD or a CD depending on the size of the backup.
This tool to make it easier to backup copy all the data you want to keep and it finds issues with files and lets you know. I do mirroring left to right for my backups this is just one direction make sure you setup each backup not to delete the source.
