Question about Samsung (SP0822N) 80 GB Hard Drive

Dead hard drive

I took my laptop in for data recovery. I was told that both the motherboard and hard drive were toast. Is there anyway to recover data from a hard drive that doesn't spin? The techs mentioned something about a clean room and several hundred dollars. Any better ideas?

Edwin,

Not sure if you still can recover your files. There are some good recover programs around, but not that many good ones for free. Some programs you can use to see what you can recover, and then you can retrieve 5 files or so and for more you have to pay.
Anyway when not to many files are already encrypted, you should be able to retrieve some or most files. Be aware you should not write one bit to the drive, till you really got back what you need.

Check out these sites, and see if you can get a program that helps enough. If not, you always can buy.
