Hi,
two days ago HddSurgery has changed the system, now you can't login anymore for firmware downloading if you are not registered with your data recovery company email address.
http://firmware.hddsurgery.com/login.php

Accounts with gmail/yahoo/yandex etc will not be accepted.

If you want to dowanload firmware with simple registration, you have to pay 1 EUR for each firmware download.
:twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

P.S.
I registered myself with my personal email on 29 July 2016, now they've deleted my account without any explanation.
I haven't received any message via email.

This is how they work, if one day they wake up thinking they want charge more money, they can delete your account without any explanation.

What is difference for You if you register with Gmail or company email address?
If you work professionally data recovery you should have company domain and email.

We wrote on facebook page why we did it. We host server on Amazon and pay for bandwith. Every download is charged. We have milions attepmts from China and other countries with emails like 123@gmail.con
We built new sistem and could not make a difference between them.
Ever day someone was spending 2h cleaning what is spam and who is DR person.

Someone spent money and time to give you resources for free, all you have to do is register one more time.
If this is a big problem to you I appoligise in the name of whole company.

My account using one @vodafone.pt e-mail address was deleted ...

I guess that now one does need be the owner of a data recovery firm to register and download firmware for free ...

Otherwise one will have to pay ....

I don't know if my site does account as a data recovery business but i did try to register anyway .... Let's see ....

My firmware repository is and always be free: https://www.data-medics.com/forum/firmw ... s-t28.html
I'm not greedy like them :wink:

I only restrict it to active members of my forum so people aren't just leeching it who never share anything. Though, if anyone is an active contributor to this forum as well, I'd probably be willing to grant access to it.

You recover data for free aslo? Or you still charge overpriced fees?
Or you still loose peoples data by shuting down media cashe on rosewoods?
How can someone trust a man who swore he will never step
foot on hddguru again?

Here we go again. He's gonna complain to Dmitri and get me banned for a while.

Maybe I should start running ads on this forum so I can get people banned when I don't like them too. :D

Also ....

On my site / forum i do have a simple question - what is the name of this forum . That question alone allows me to "filter" 99% of the spambots.

Are you saying that bots and spam are able to reply to your questions about firmware and hard drives in general ? I don't think so.

I would say that even just one of those questions on your registration form is enought to filter out spam bot.

Also ... your firmware repository is NOT a forum.

Spam Bots are "spam" as they post "spam". On your repository there is nothing to post so there is noting to gain if a bot registers there ... of course they can download firmware but should be easy to limit to 1 or 2 files a day, etc ....

Don't see any reason for all of this apart from "pay us" to get firmware. Simple.

All the rest is just lame excuses.

Seems to me you are our biggest fan. every time we post something you follow it. I am very great full. Your comments as all others mean a lot to us. Does not mean we always agree but we see them.
I read you alow only registrated users who share something with you.
i just allow proffesionals. You and I make our own groups.
i do not call you greede for asking something in return. You ask participation on your forim, I just ask for someone to identify him self. not to hide behind between xyz account and make robbots since we pay for every download. We made biggest Db on line. Many many people use it, I never asked anything in return. When hosting bill become to much, i had to reset so i can exclude robots from people.
Am I guilty for eclipse also?

I opted not to charge for firmware because IT's A CRIME!!!! (at least here in the USA).

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.

You know I'm I'm just poking the bear with you because I know how sensitive you are when anyone says your tools are too expensive. Always fun to rile you up for a bit. :D

I call spam and boots people who make by hand every day new account, sometimes a hundred a day. And then download.maximum of 5 every day. One copy cat company witch i will not name here, even made a fw download sections. When they decided to hire people to download every single file and put it on their site i had to react. Belive or not I had enough of them.
is it lime or not, it is up to you to decide. I give something for free. Did not hear thanks even....dont need it. If you do not like it I am sorry.
