RE: RE: [WISPA] OT Hard Drive Failure

2005-11-28 Thread Brian Rohrbacher
I have the adapter on the way.  I will plug it into my desktop once and
run a software recover utility once to see what happens.  After this, I
will send it off to a cleanroom.  If a drive needs cleanroom work...
www.mjtdata.com says to send it to www.gillware.com

Contact this guy.  He has done wonders for us.  Charges $10 to look at
it.
Your charges for shipping to him.  If he can salvage data from it he
usually
charges $100, more for a full recovery.  Email him at M. J. Thompson

This is the route I will take.  I have tried to boot it 6 or 7 times and
I will NOT power it up again.  My external backup drive just got here
Friday too!  I was a day late.  :(  I have found a few places with flat
rates at $700 or so.  I will keep looking.  Anyone have a Dell 8600? 
Will you take the hard drive out and jiggle it?  I want to know it it
rattles.  Just for peace of mind.  I hope it rattles.

If anyone does not have backups, go do it now.  THIS SUCKS.  I hve Dell
complete care, so laptop replacement is free, but not the data.

 Brian,
 
 If the data is of importance to you, DO NOTHING!  Do not attempt any
 additional boots.  You have head damage, and each RPM is causing
pitting
 on the platter surface, literally taking bits of your data with it.
Send
it
 only to a lab wit a clean room and one with credentials.  Be prepared
to
 spend a minimum of $500 and possibly as much as $2000, depending on
the
 damage, and the amount of data you wish to recover.  If it is more
than a
 few Gb, you will also have to send them another hard drive to put it
on.
 
 I hope you have better luck than I did.  I decided that I was as good
as
the
 experts and before sending mine to I even tried putting the platters
into
a
 good working identical drive I had ling around.  It was a fatal error
and
I
 lost over 2 years work (for experts, we sure screw the pooch often,
don't
we
 ;)  I was provided with the above advice by the lab I sent mine to
after I
 was told the data was unrecoverable due to excessive surface damage.
 
 Good luck.
 
 Joe
