Hello
A customer came to me today with this ( thing ). He was putting the drive in tissues. After some investigating he said that he gave it to someone and that ( someone ) put something ( liquid ) on the drive ( both sides front label and PCB side ) two weeks ago.
Then he surprised when bring the drive from the tissues. :D

Seems that "someone" put acid in the poor thing.

And, obviously, the customer doesn´t know when/who/where/why it happened ....

Just another normal day then.

I told the customer that this must be some kind of acid. (brutal acid indeed) the top cover was totally ruined.

It is recoverable. All you have to do is invent a time machine.

Well, if Convar was able to recover the WTC drives, this should be a piece of cake.

Could someone recover data from two pieces of glass?
The problem that the platters returned to it's original state without any magnetic field.

Take a look on this drive here:

It looks much worse than your drive.

I don't think so.
WTC drives was suffering from debris, dust, burnt...etc.
But not acid into platters for two weeks.
