Backstory: I had a netbook I used for writing that just stopped working and wouldn't power up. I asked a friend who knows tech who suggested a USB adapter to recover my data. I bought a 2.5 SATA adapter and but the drive wouldn't show up on the drive manager (other laptop). I researched and found that if the hard drive isn't "booting up" or making any sound (which is wasn't) that its likely damaged. Based on this info, does it sound like its beyond saving or even possible to recover it?
Software/Hardware used: SATA 2.5 USB Adapter, SATA 3.0 Hard Drive
