That spay is just a joke -- there is no such thing. Looking at the filthy filter, all you can do is pass your regrets to the customer that the data is totally unrecoverable.

Agree ! HDD Spray will not help you now, only a time machine ... or a backup of the drive made when it was still working ...

MRT is not able to make separate head copy on this drive. Yes, it has the function but is buggy. Doesn't work at all!
Instead, the old PC3000 PCI it does separate head copy.
