Basically my mate has an external drive he dropped and now its not working, silly him really. Anyway he brought it to me and I tried it in a new caddy. W00t it worked and he was using it for a day or so. Then it died again and only makes clicking noises which suggests bad things.

Is it worth give something like Spinrite a go as the information on it is really important to him (I know he should have used backup's but he doesn't know a lot about computers)

Thats the thing its not being detected anymore. I was just wondering if there was a technique bar sending it to a specialist?

Also any recommendation on who to send it too if its my only choice.
