I know that modern drives write servo on each platter surface, but it's my experience that they are still extremely sensitive to any loss of alignment.

I am with you on this one but this is what nikola is saying .BTW nikola i do not use any of your tools til today ,Might be some day i will once we in india start getting good payment for DR work in respected to americans and european DR firms .Anyway i will share my viewpoit cos i said the same to you in a facebok or youtube post
You Said : The Platter Stand is a support tool, developed after numerous request from our clients.
Reply : Well no doubt about that
You Sad :To use it, a certain level of experience and knowledge is needed. If you have ever cleaned the platters of the drive struck by the floods, unskilled/sloppy data recovery technician or client, this tool would be very useful in terms of:
Reply : Well unfortunately how many of those DR firms/People you know can remove a multiplatter Hard drive platters and fix them back .I do not think its easy without a proper machine or some tools which i a sure 99.9 skilled and experienced DR guys have not got .The Rest 0.1% are companies like seagate data recovery "BTW i did see a platter stand on one one thier video and it was for single platter " .
You Said :1. Having an easy approach to the platters
Reply : True Its a Great Tool For Single Platters .But if the tech cannot reassemble multiplatter platter stack back taking ,inspecting ,cleaning multiplatter stack does not make sense
You Said :2. Avoiding problems with other platters while inspecting one
Reply : Well that is true ,even for single platler i would say .
You Said :3. Easily sinking the platter into the cleaning liquid etc. etc.
Reply : Totally Useless Idea in my opinion ,You will need a big dia utensil/cleaner and it will need to be deep ,Were as single platter and muti platter stacks can be cleaned [ Properly ] With a 2 Inch Deep Cleaner/Utensil Just at the size of the hdd 3.5" or 2.5" when hdd it vertical standing " .Plus no issue wth mutiplatter adjustment .For inspection well for single platter there are simpler ways to do it and for multiplatter makes zero sense if we cannot reassemble to make it work again .
You Said :We have made a simple and safe holder for the platters. It is up to data recovery engineer how to manage the platters and how many of them. We were asked by experienced data recovery engineers to develop such tool and so far we receive nothing but positive impressions.
Reply :Well yes you have made it simple and safe .Well 99.9% of us cannot manage multiplatter alignments .
PS : my opinions are based on the fact of my knowledge and daily working with physical work in my lab .If someone wants to pour in better views of multiplatter alignment i would be grateful .Cheers nikola keep making new tools
