Hello,

You can recover it by putting identical circuit board to that hard drive. or if you have identical hard drive with it. borrow the circuit and then fix it to the damage hardrive and slave it to another system.


may this help,

PS:

pls do not rate me if my solution not solve the issue and you need more further information. but if is invaluable solution rate me fixya.

You can recover the file with 3rd party data recovery software.I have succeed to recover files from external hard drive with Tenroshare Data Recovery.It can recover data after deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost files. By the way,you can download it and scan your hard drive for free to preview whether your file can be recovered. Get it from http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/datarecoverystandard.htm

I accidentally reformat my removable hard disk, i need help on how to recover all lost data.


All your files are still stored on the removable hard drive.They're just invisible or inaccessible.You can recover them with data recovery software.

I used this one to recover files from my formatted external hard drive and it worked. Anyway,you can download it and scan your removeable hard drive for free to preview whether you can recover your data.
Hope this help!

I was just copying and pasting files from hard drive to my local disk e but suddenly it stop copying and detecting i even removed it and plug it again but it does not detected


If the driver make a click sound chances are that drive is dead, maybe the heads parks down in a zone not allowed to, etc. You can follow this procedure to try to recover some data in this drive

Well not really, the only chance you would have is to A: Get an NEW, EXACTLY the same Hard Drive, remove the electronics board and replace it for the bad one, NOTE This will ONLY work, if the Controller board, ONLY, is damaged, NOT if the drive internals have failed. If that happens then it is option b. B: Send it back to the manufacturer and pay them to recover it. They can take the Platter(s) out and put them in a new drive or simply copy the data off and put on a new one, this is pretty expensive, but if the data is worth it then that's your only option.

When a file is delete, it's still there on the drive, just as before; all that happens is that the file table marks it as free space and changes its name so it's no longer visible. There are a number of "undelete" utilities available, including several good ones, like asoftech data recovery that helped me before:

Hi, I fried my pcb board on my Segate drive and need to get a new one, i tried calling Segate and they are no help i searched and called a few random companies and they were not much better. Does anyone...


The Printed Circuit Board controls many functions to operate the hard disk drive, There are 5 main features of a the electronics that can be unique to each drive that is likely to fail, the first being:
POWER INPUT The most problems we see here are mostly human era... forcing the power plug in the wrong way Unfortunately apart from a few notebook PCB's the is no protection fuse to prevent PCB Damage There is also risk of power surges making it through to the electronics as well
FIRMWARE Firmware is unique to the PCB this controls calibration and track information so it is very rare to be able to interchange the same model PCB with one that has another firmware revision... so what this means, if your board shorts out the firmware unique to the drive, you will be in trouble. Of course a good main stream data recovery company will be able to replace this and manually reprogram this chip
SPINDLE IC This controls the speed and rotation of the spindle rotating the platters internal to the hard drive assembly or HDA These intend to get very hot at times and can often short out… The most famous of models to this was the good old quantum LCT, particularly the TDA5247HT Chip; this would go up in smoke and leave a pin hole or a very big mess on or over the IC






MICRO CONTROLLER These rarely fail unless there has been an extreme hit by power such as a lightning strike that may cause voltage through the IDE Cable. If this does fail you would normally find visible damage
TRACKS Internal track are the thin Copper ribbons that run through the board that connect each component these can be easily damaged bay any of the above case scenarios, but one of the most common that I have seen is Corrosion Below is a great Example of how quickly chemicals in the air from industrial workshops or even sulfa in the air from volcanic regions can cause havoc... but for most residential computer hard drives its condensation that damages a PCB
In this example this PCB was only 6 months old









WARNING IF YOU CHANGE A PRINTED CIRCUIT BOARD WITH A NON MATCHING PCB... SUCH AS DIFFERENT FIRMWARE, LAYOUT, OR MICRO CONTROLLER NUMBERS, YOU WILL RUN A HIGH RISK OF FAILURE AND FURTHER DAMAGE!
Yes there's a high chance...
YOU WILL SEE SMOKE!!!!!! If you have an exact match to the PCB you want to attempt swapping, the risk will be minimal but what allot of people don’t realize, is that code can change overtime even with exact matching parts.
What this means is... if you were to purchase two NEW exact hard drives at the same time from the same batch and then swapped there PCB's to each other, you would most likely be successful!
Try that same scenario 6 months after heavy use... and results will could be very different There's a high chance that each PCB has made themselves unique to each drive!
How can this be? Its called SMART Technology where the hard drive is designed to reconfigure itself during operation to maximizing performance and protecting data. If a sector is read slow but functional the drive will remap this sector as bad and move this sector creating changes to track and sector information in firmware Now this new reconfigured information is unique to the drive, and can cause this PCB to be incompatible with any other drive of matching numbers.
As a data recovery engineer it is always best to repair the Original electronics of a failed hard disk drive That way you get maximum results with very little risk, Most high end data recovery companies have the expertise to replace many, if not all components on the PCB.. but not only physically but replacement, but this may also involve new components and reprogramming.
