Is it the hard drive which failed or the system? If system failed but hard drive is fine then all it takes is a usb enclosure(good one available for around 500 on amazon) to take out the hard drive from laptop & put in usb enclosure & use it as external drive to copy data. If hard drive itself is failed then you need professional help which will cost money & might not even be worth it depending on the data you want to rescue.

4-5k onwards, but again depends on size of data, plus there is no guarantee. But they charge only on sucessful retrieval

Make a bootable usb of puppy linux and boot into it. Check if hdd is accessible. The error code according to google is for HDD failure, in which case it wont be accessible. If HDD failed it is going to cost you a lot for recovering data, probably not worth it unless it contains bussiness data or a bitcoin wallet key.

This. And try using a recovery software like EaseUS(paid) or Recuva(free) if HDD is still working.

“Unfortunately, the most likely cause of the Dell ePSA error code 2000-0142 is a hard disk failure. If you hear your hard drive making strange noises (clicking, beeping, grinding) or failing to spin up, you’ll know for sure that your hard drive is dead.”

First try to try to take out the HDD and clean the SATA Connectors and try different sata cable.

•Does your HDD makes weird noises like clicking or high speed motor spinning?

If your HDD has failed there are ways to attempt to identify what inside the HDD failed. But not easy to find the compatible spare parts and someone skilled enough to fix and recover the data..

That’s why professional data recovery costs can go easily over lakhs.

Best way to safeguard is BACK-UP…. BACK-UP… BACK-UP

I learnt it hardway few years ago. And now usually I always take backup and even further backup every 1-2 months from my laptop. So only risk on 1-2 months data. It is time consuming, but atleast data is saved.

I’ve learnt that hard way too. And for crucial data I try to keep a backup of the backup

Data Recovery Charges depend on the issue/damage done to your drive ( + the hard drive size ) // Very high (10k for 50/100GB?).. unless its something like.. replace cables/connectors and get the drive working //
Also.. if you have personal data on your drive then think twice before opting for third party data recovery services

Anyways.. based on the Error Code, seems like Drive has failed or about to fail
You can try creating windows 10 installation drive..
Boot to the drive & run checkdisk via command prompt (Worked for few with this error)
chkdsk /r C:
chkdsk /f C:

// “C” is the drive where OS is installed" //

Anyways.. based on the Error Code, seems like Drive has failed or about to fail

chkdsk /r C:
chkdsk /f C:

Dont have any bootable windows drive bro…

I made my pendrive bootable by having iso file of ubuntu…

Went to a data recovery centre and that fellow charged me 2000 rs for 100 mb… Outright cheaters

I feel he has not even opened the drive and some how shown me all the data on drive .. Don’t know how…
He has given me a text file which contained all the information about data…

I think chkdsk feature is used by him

Did you try using enclosure or cable to connect the hard drive to some other computer @geni
