Hey, I'm new here so hopefully this is in the correct place.

My HardDrive was dropped from a short distance and it started making a noise. When I opened it up the wheel / actual disk wasn't turning, I've managed to get it to turn but it's making a noise / jamming. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!!

Can we assume that your data wasn't worth a few hundred bucks before you opened it? Now that you most certainly damaged the heads and possibly the surface, it will cost a lot more by a professional.

Bad thing: opening up the drive in an unclean environment.
Worse thing: running the drive with lid off.
Good thing: from that video it doesn’t look like the damaged heads are sweeping across the surface, causing further media damage.

Probably recoverable, but definitely NOT a DIY job.

i think there is a 50% chance to recover it yet. if your data is important contact DR center with cleanroom.

The reason I opened it was I want he'd some YouTube videos and they done the same.

But I've fuc**d it all up ain't I?

It's got some memories on there along with just random crap like films

I did phone a company but they said £200 I simply don't have that sort of money!

It will be way more than £200 now ... At least £600 now that you did open it up ... Something like £1500 more likely but d£200 on't expect to pay less than £200 sounds more lilely a logical issue if the drive doesn't have physical problems and was not opened up ...

I can take a look, but it’ll be more than £200.

But less than £600 :-)
