Theoretically, yes, but there are potentially some ways to work with what you have, even damaged. From your explanation, it is not clear if those ways were already pursued or not. If they were not, then can't quite be officially deemed unrecoverable, I think...

Maybe you still can re-create the P-List from the SS logs ?

As waqas stated.
If you have WDR after clearing the modules and assuming you have no bad blocks on sa on the place where those modules are (you can write new modules there and erase them without problem) on WDR go to Actions - Super Format - Rebuild P-List.

Best regards.

Can you post a list of DAMAGED/UNREADABLE modules ?

If only 33 and 31 are BAD but the logs and all the others are fine i can most likely fix the drive and get your data back for a reasonable fee. PM if interested and post a list of damaged modules if more than 31 and 33.

Ohhh ....
You should be posting on the Salvation Data section of HDDGuru then, instead of posting on the DFL-WDII section of it .....

Check for Defects list management. you will see P-List Regenerate. that would be the issue you are looking for. Also Translator Regeneration
