    Hi, I'm haiving problems retreiving data from my sata extrenal drive. Every time I plug in External to do my work it does not read any message but I can hear a knocking sound from the hd. I am thinking that this might be pemanent hard fault and might not be repairable.

    Any idea to fix thiz problem...

    does sound like the drive is faulty

    the click of death

    it may be repairable - quite a few companies do data recovery, it can be expensive
