That code is the intellectual property of WD, Seagate, etc. To sell it is to profit from someone else's work. Donor Drives was pretty smart because they were charging only for the "service" to copy the code from a specific drive they had for sale and provide it to you (before they posted it all for free too). But, selling the code here will get you served with a legal notice fast.

I guess you don't have to worry about that stuff in some countries with more lax rules about copyright.



I did not see you protecting our intelectual rights. When a company steals names., nomenclature copy design you call it on your forum " more reasonable price tool"
Now you have a problem we share for free resourcea with collages?
I understand you do not like what we do, but understand it is very difficoult to understand what are your stands.
You aprove copyrights or no? You like us giving resources for free or no?
Do you like our free videos and manuals or no?
Please make somethinng that we can use I promisse i will not make it.but buy from you.

It's quite obviouse that they want money so ...

1) Get firmware from sonewhere else ...

2) If you can't find the firmware that you need and you do really need that specific FW to solve your HDD problem case just pay the 1€ ... You are going to charge your client way more so live with that ...

We do need more FREE alternative (BIG) firmware libraries like HDD Surgery one ...

This firmware repository was indeed really good .... Hopefully someone will come up with a free alternative.

It is free. if you can answer 5 easy questions and have company domain.
or if you have a friend who has it. You do have a friend or I need to
drow it for you?
Pay pall takes 0.4 usd from 1usd. Programera charged us 1500 Usd.
We still did not have any sales. i just have aliby now to say no to
people who answer 123 123 123 to our questions.
Our Fw data base is data base of Fw we got from drives we recovered.
Count them and think do we really need 0.6 usd from it?

btw we set it up like that that it geathers fw from all our recovery mashines and uploads them every week. We made algoritam to excludes
folders with out full names like test 123 or new folder or job number.
Then it zips it and uploads it to Amazon so you can download it fast.
And we pay per amount for Mb every month.
How many times.you used Ldr from our.base?
No need to thank me...

5) Check my "old" account under username "Spildit" (that got deleted). How many files did i download from you since 2 years ago ?

Since i register up until now i did only download 7 or 8 files / firmwares that i did needed on that specific time/case ...

Meaning .... I can't see any valid reason for my account to be deleted. Just that.

I'm not going to waste more time replying here. It's simple. If i do need some firmware from you that i can't get from anywhere else i will pay the 1€ and charge the client. No big deal.

If someone else can share a big repository for free the better- and for free i do mean that I CAN ACCESS TO for free. Simple.

With any change, there will always people that will complain.

About the registration, have all the bugs been solved ? Maybe there is something that is giving errors even when people register with the correct address.

Re: Hdd Surgery firmware download not working

July 27th, 2018, 17:42

there are no bugs. Confirmation is being done during work hours.

Who deletes media cache? Do they not know it’s function. I may be wrong, has been known, but I always thought clearing media cache performs a flush on completion, wiping the data area on hard drive for the areas included in the mc. There are much better ways of working with mc

@spildit - Nikola means "They didnt delete any emails, due to replacement of new system/software - all the registration went invalid. Thats why requesting for new registration!
And, he is charging for not making profit/business, he is making it for collecting/managing the operating cost of the server where he is being charged for every downloads/bandwidth.

@nikola - you have been making great efforts for DR industry for years by developing innovative tools. I think, it is easily understandable by the users if you say, its not the charge/payment for the fw, instead it is the operating cost of the downloads!

Hopefully things will be clear-up!

Download is free as it used to be. We are just more strict to email registration. As I said we have guys who made soft and use many different gmail accounts to copy Db. To eliminate this we made a strict rule. Just sign in with company domain. If you want to remain anonimus, go to premium section. 99.999999% will use it like they did.
We just could not spend 1h a day for filtering mails.
Thanks for nice words

Having a free share of resources too, I found that, for some stupid reason, people would sign up and want to download everything rather than just download the one resource they need.

Fortunately for me, I host my own server and have unlimited usage. But, I still don't want my internet maxed out all the time either.

Anyway...we all run our businesses differently. Let's not get too upset when others don't want do it our way.

I have to agree that access to the FW databases has to be limited, due to the greedy bastards who sign up and just leech the entire database. Unfortunately these selfish f***ers have spoiled it for everybody else :evil:

One way of putting these idiots off is by only allowing unlimited free access to genuine people and allowing access to Joe Public for individual downloads at a small charge. This would result in the scroungers being put off. Nikola has chosen this route and I have no problem with it, he can run his business as he chooses, he’s not a charity!

I am wondering why this thread has two pages of posts already.
Nikola is providing a FREE service to all professionals that need it.
I use it every day and I'm grateful.
Everything else is nonsense.
