Wow HDD recoveries are mega expensive i didn't realise
Don't they just unscrew the disk from the mounting and replace it into a similar HDD? That's about an hours job at best, costing the same price as a new HDD.
I had one died on me last year, it was my best one i owned (a 200GB samsung PATA drive) quite expensive too. It had barely anything on it cause i recently installed a new OS on it. I just turned it on one day to find with the "tick of death" - the head probably broke or something...
Ahwell i couldn't get it working again so i pulled it apart and nabbed the magnets from it :biggrin:
