I am very new to this forum and this is my first post, so please accept my apology if I make any mistake or break any forum rules.

My laptop fall down, due to that my hard drive stop working and start making clicking sound. I sent my laptop for hard drive replacement and I got back my old HDD back. I attach it with 2.5" HDD external case. Now when I attach to my another laptop, it shows me my partition but cannot open and it make click sound. HDD become very hot.

Now my question is that can we repair that HDD as I need my 4 yrs data from my second partition. Kindly suggest me what can I do. Thank you.

Clicking sound it's not good.
If your data is important you will have to send the drive to a data recovery firm.
If you don't want to pay and your data is not important, as the "partition" is somehow seen by the OS i assume that the Firmware should still be functioning and maybe there is the possibilty that something like ddrescue can clone at least some part of the drive.
I would say bad heads because the drive/computer was dropped, but maybe still possible to clone without head swap, at least partially.

You should get in touch with them to get an answer to this.
It all depends on the failure and the media type/model.
