My laptop HDD died on me!! Warranty?
I'm about to send it for warranty but I want to recover as much data as I can before doing so,,, i have lots of music and lots of coding that I lost (vb carputer software that was like 3/4 finished) :mad:
the hard drive wont spin up, it was in my bag and i guess it hit some how while i was walking,,,, it was in its case and in my bag,,,, what the hell, its not even a year old :(
when i plug it in (external case) it makes funny noises, but doesnt spin up.... anything I could do before sending it on warranty?
This is the first warranty im going to give and im afraid of sending my data :( I have lots of contacts and lots of family pictures and other stuff I dont want to lose/distribute, is there anything I can do without voiding the warranty, considering that the drive doesnt spin?
What are companies policies for viewing data on RMA drives? Do they have the right to go through my stuff?
yeah i know im a little *****y when it comes to stuff like this...
