I have an external hard disk (Maxtor-400GB), which I bought in August 2007 from PC world on Old Kent Road for 70. Yesterday, I knocked over the disk onto its side, and since then its not being registered by the computer.

It makes little odd sounds now and whatever is inside is not rotating.

Please please does anyone have any advice on how I can recover the data on the disk in the cheapest way possible.

PS. In return if anyone has any health questions, I'd be more than willing to answer them.
