How many pieces did the disks blow apart into when they exploded?

I have only seen that once when the heads collided with the disk and /SHATTER (poof) pieces everywhere.

hey haha, i nvr noticed it before but if u look up under the bar where it has "quick links", "user cp" and "search" and whatever, there are links to HD failure and data recovery sites, u may want to check those out. The HD links probably only works in the HD section of forums.

Drive Savers, man. I send people a link to their site a couple times a month. I hear they don't charge you anything if they can't get the data back, but if they do charge it'll be $$$$. www.drivesavers.com
