Anyone have experiance with "DD" data recovery?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok, well, I was walking around my desk and my foot grabbed a hold of one of my external enclosures and it droped onto the carpet with padding under it, roughly a three and a half foot fall. Much to my dismay there is a slight ticking in the drive if I put my head to it, and the drive isnt recognized by any machine on my network. This drive has my lifes work on it. I have bits and peices all over, but I have old family videos, college papers, pictures, project files, and such on it that I just cant bare to loose. Its a 300GB seagate barracuda 7200.8...

Does anyone have any experiance with this, or have you gone to a company and had it recovered? I am depressed right now, bad.

Some data recovery services are very expensive... up to the $300-400's

Perfect example of why it's always good to back up your data.

Yea I hear they get expensive, they have to pull them into a clean room, has anyone had it done?

Dude I have about a TB of backup here. This is part of the master backup array, the stuff that hadnt been archived to DVD and tape yet...

I move so much data mostly 3d renderings, rendered media, and photos, it is inpractical for me to backup to DVD all the time, so I kept it on a disk array, which my dumbass happend to trip over.

Any other solutions for archiving mass amounts of data?

Data recovery can get very expensive. When my drive failed I got quotes from $500 to $2000. I went with a place called CBL data recovery, they got my data at a reasonable price.

Get Spin Rite It's a amazing program for data recovery. If you got that much data that crapped out it might take spin right a couple of days to work on that HDD but it will most likely work.

I can lend you a copy if you need to but if it worked for you, you better promise that you will purchase it it's $79 as i recall.

Once you get the program it will let you burn it to and iso or a floopy, that's bootable.

Run it in i think Mode 5 and it should clean everthing up for you.

IF IT WORKS FOR YOU BUY IT if it didn't then don't

If you want to give it a try PM me and i will hook you up

Thanks Metalica, however its a hardware issue, and its not repairable via software. I talked to the IT department at work and they actually bought a kit for repairing drives because they have had to do a few before, so he will take a look at it for me next week. Thanks.
