hi
This is not actual about Veeam products but maybe can help someone.
One of our external hdd with Veeam files stopped working. Click of death.
We put it in freezer over night and now hdd work "like new" :D . Data is saved but of course hdd will be trashed.

Actually this is a really old and still great trick. Also turning the HDD upside down sometimes helps. Saved a couple of Master Theses like that :D
