Hi there all .......... bit of a long shot, but looking for some advice.
My daughter is at Uni in Q/land (few hundred klm from home). She is doing a double degree, and the hard drive on her laptop has spat the dummy ........ No access to all her notes etc, with exams looming.
Anyone have any knowledge of how to access the data from a suddenly faulty hard drive (about 2.5 years old ..... Acer I think ... not sure of the model, but could find out)
She has taken it to a computer shop .... they can't get any response from the drive. They indicated data retrieval may be possible by a specialist .......... they indicated the cost of retrieval may be high, which I appreciate, but cash is tight at the moment, so any other option may be helpful.
