Question Physical data recovery

Anyone have any hookups? I know it's expensive. My HD won't even come on. Not willing to try the freezing just yet. Already tried SATA/USB to try and access, no dice.

Thanks.

If the drive won't come on, freezing won't do anything cept make it a cold brick. I've only had the freezing issue work for a death tap where the spindle arms weren't working right.

What drive is it? Is it SMART enabled?

If you feel comfortable, you may try and find the same hard drive off ebay and do replace the PCB. I've done it twice (sucessful twice) and for $30 it allowed me to get the data off and onto an external drive.

Thanks, Chris. I'll give that a shot. It's out of a IBM T61 - 80GB Hitachi Model # HTS541680J9SA00 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822145175

As far as the SMART, I don't believe so. I never got any warning and when I rebooted it wouldn't recognize the HD as even being able to be bootable, nor would it allow me to do a HD test.

Good to hear from you - hope things are going well for you.

If that doesn't work, flashbackdata.com has a no recovery, no pay policy and they're in Austin.

Id go with local recovery. Ive used one before but they were $$$$ cause my boss thought it would be cool to open the cover.

If you ship it somewhere you could fuck it up more if the head is stuck to the platter then scratches the hell of it. 99% of the companies are no files no pay.

I've used Ontrack and ADR.

I prefer ADR as they are local (off Cole st) They have a $100 diagnostic (non-refundable). If you use their service they will apply the $100 toward the recovery (which is around $500-1800 depending on factors. Call Dustin and he'll get you started:
