Hard Drive Crashed And Burned
http://hm2faq.holdemmanager.com/ques...e+or+Partition that doesnt actually help as the hard drive is not working at all and we're browsing through the files/folders with data recovery software.. Not only that, there were two mirrored drives but the recovery worked on the first one. You should understand that you probably will destroy the drive in the process, but a large portion of the time you'll get some or all data out of it in the It’s just no charge to you … at the moment. http://scientificpages.net/hard-drive/old-hard-drive.html
Old Ben > There was even a term for the phenomenon: "sticktion". Gaming consoles that are close the dying can sometimes be put onto borrowed time by cooking a mainboard in this fashion. I've also gotten drives spinning again by simply quickly attaching and unattaching the power, or connecting it to a slightly more powerful source. jescott418 I backup all the time and with hard drives being cheap I would never waste time trying to fix one only to have it potentially fail yet again.
Some PCB replacements require you clone the bios chip because of the info that is calibrated to the drive it self.

Then replace the drive. You have tested in another PC correct? Being solid-state they don't crash and burn and don't require cleanrooms and magic. I hooked it up, fiilled it, put it away. About a year later, I wiped my main rig and didn't bother to copy the old backup files over first -- after
solved Laptop hard drive, can I get my data back? I'm not sure how much farther I need to take it (like, do I need ANOTHER backup?), but having the external drive makes me feel good. The cost of preventative care is considerably smaller than the inevitable loss. ;) http://pulse.yahoo.com/_UGLBUQOEMFXQGQYPVQTVHDDH74 Aaron For the home user running Windows, a cheap NAS box and the free-to-use version of Runtime.org's http://www.sevenforums.com/hardware-devices/169815-hard-drive-crashed-burned.html Under normal circumstances, most hard drives are like the Ever Ready Bunny, they just keep going and going and going.
The PCB was melted. Fortunately we had PCBs from new drives. We swapped it with a new one and successfully retrieved the data. I'd rigged it up as an external to a recovery PC, and out of desperation tried maneuvering it to get the heads to read.

This was ages ago, BTW (early 90s), and I'd never heard anyone suggest it. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/194940-32-hard-drive-burnout Ano54321 Actually, the freezer trick have worked for me on a few drives. I only use it for backup/retrieval purposes, and so far, so good *crosses fingers*. If you are already at the point where you are going to toss the drive or destroy it, there is nothing more to risk.
Waltzin Matilda http://twitter.com/DJSnM Scott Manley I don't want to encourage it, but, yes I have managed to bring a drive back to life, just for long enough to get a few have a peek at these guys It was the very first thing I tried. I use it on the wife's computer for offsite of our photos…only about 50 gig or so Michael Clapp It's unlimited except the throttling at 250GB which effectively creates a limit. First, try to determine if it's the PCB or the drive itself. If it's the PCB you'll likely see something damaged, or the drive simply doesn't do anything at all when

Always worth a shot imo waltc3 Joel, I haven't read anything from you in awhile, and I'm only sorry we had to meet again under these circumstances…;) Losing a drive can
Western Digitals seem to be the most popular and economical, but I don't want another one. Each drive ROM contains parameters and data unique to that particular device -- if the parameters for your dead drive are different from those contained on the donor PCB, it won't Also please exercise your best judgment when posting in the forums--revealing personal information such as your e-mail address, telephone number, and address is not recommended.

It wasn't full by any means, and the only software I loaded after purchase is Office for the Mac. It's just off-the-shelf flash circuits.
