Looks like this is going to be another .... @ HARD RECOVER

:D

Did you check heads ?

Your m0,6 command didn't work. Format failed.

You were not able to initialize S.M.A.R.T. as well.

What was the initial problem with the drive ? For those 5400.6 you just remove them from the laptop and you replace them with a Toshiba or HGST ...

Sure ! Long time no see. I used to keep on playing with your nickname @Hard Recover. At least now you do have SeDiv instead of pirated "ChineseWare".

That error --- maybe the drive can't read/write to that location ?

If the drive was still operating at some ATA level i do bet that you would get a huge amount of greens followed by bad block on many "zones" or entire head(s) when scanning with Victoria.

Normaly what i see on those 5400.6 is that they will initialize Firmware fine, will read the first LBAs just fine and will hit a bad zone/head and from there on will be just slow access and sectors that are not readable.

I did try to "fix" several of those drives but normaly it's pointless. Platters do loose the capability to store data or heads are just contaminated and can't properly read. It's a time waste to fix or refurb those drives. You will have better chance of refurb ST-10 drives with Self-Scan or WD drives or even Hitachi/HGST/IBM with "format unit" VSC.

Seagate F3 ARCH is just waisting your time. Trash the drive. Better you can keep the PCB for future use ... not that i see many of those drives with PCB problems as well but we never know ...

It depends on the error itself !!!

Each error do mean a thing.

That CC error normaly is related to S.M.A.R.T.

At least you can now play with SeDiv and try to backup modules and sysfiles and ROM.

How are you doing there at India ? Are you solving many data recovery cases ?

Are you getting a huge amount of work or are you doing mainly drive repair for re-sell the drives without needing the data ?

Do you have many competitors there ? Are you doing a good job at data recovery ? Many solved cases ? Or are you not able to repair/get the data on the majority of cases ?

And about prices ? Are you offering cheap prices to your costumers ?

:D

Looks like HARD RECOVER will be competing with you as well !!!

I can see many people from India doing data recovery and participating on this forum ! Looks like there are a huge market there for data recovery, of course the majority of people are using cheap tools instead of expensive PC-3000, etc ... but as it looks that people are not willing to pay that much as well i don't think that it should be significant to get PC-3000 just to cover some extra jobs that other tools can't do ...

This is interesting !

Interesting as well would be to check out the quality of some of those services agains the price practiced.

I wouldn't be amazed if there were people charging a huge amount of money like $600 or more for simple fixes done with free/pirated tools like WDR, SRT, etc ...

:shock: :shock: :shock:

the other main thing is max number of Data Recovery Services in India were providing also computer repair services , sales etc. So who offering other services they should Need maintain customer Goodwill with low price ( not with Good Work ). And they don't have time to research on new updates..

When i researched about Data recovery Prices with selected ones (25 Members Who offering other Services also)
They Will recover with following prices For 1 Terra byte
TYPE 1
PCB Damage : 7X$ (Providing in dollars)
Little bad blocks : 7X$

And other Firmware , Heavy bad blocks , Head swap, Motor problems will send to other pro with customer Approval

Semi Professional Data Recovery Prices ( Note: i researched about few members only and not whole nation )
==Non Registered Companies== ( For 2 TB )
TYPE 2
Bad blocks OR Dead PCB : 3XX$
Head Swap : 4XX$
firmware Issues : 2XX to 3XX$
Motor : 6XX$
( they give 50% Discount for Type 1 Members)

Professional Data Recovery Prices ( Note: i researched about few members only and not whole nation )
== Registered and Dedicated Data Recovery Firms ==
Bad Blcoks or Dead PCB, Firmware issues : 6XX$
Head Swap : 10XX$
Motor : 13XX$
Just bellow 10 Companies are there
( They Give 20% Discount for Type 1 and Type 2 members )

We have the same kind of things around here, probably the other "excuses" you didn´t mention ocrcur here also, and most of times receive some adequate answers :

1. "Then we will do only the cheap version of the work and recover what is easy, since data is not worthy. Or you should forget about it and use the money for a new hard disk"
2. "Good. Then you pay the normal price now, and for each more work you send us you will receive 10% of the price they paid."
3. "I know, I remember you, but we have our expenses to pay. Father will agree."
4. "Well, then I will not keep you here. It is better to take the other pro´s offer before he changes it.."
5. "Sir, our price is that and we cannot change it."

My experience, mostly from 2) and 4) is that customers plainly lie. They have no intention of sending jobs to you and do not have better quotes. Will just say anything just to get some advantage, then later forget about what they said, promises and all.

Those that just cry about the price I can even accept and try to work something with them. Those that want to resort to the lying I feel like saving their recovered data to an used Seagate DM drive.

And Right Prices are less in some Big cities ( DELHI , AHMADABAD, Kolkata, MUMBAI, HYDRABAD )
But those have branches in other areas where to get high prices .. but main branch services are (CHEAP)

Ok, nice info !

I will check some other Indian DR firms to have a better idea of pricing as well.

And just out of curiosity, are you doing TYPE 1, Semi Professional Data Recovery or Professional Data Recovery ?
