Well it happened. I lost 238GB of music I have been collecting for the past 7 years. I was actually in the process of backing it up to another hard drive when it happened. Anyways, What is the likly amount I will have to pay to get most if not all of my dad back. I think the cause is the drive got banged up ( not in my care of course) and the head got mis aligned. I hear clicks and sounds coming from the drive when it starts to spin up and the head is trying to set but can not. If they just have to exchange the head reader in a clean room can I get my data back for under $800? What are you best , cheapest companies you recommend for something like this? Do they have any agreement that says if I get my data back the mp3 will still be playable? What do you think?
