Long time reader first time poster
I registered today because i finally understood what the pros / data recovery experts were saying all this time. Then:
All this time i was on the newbies side thinking DR is sooo secretive industry. They must know but they don't wanna tell. Its 2 min fix if they tell me how to do it. Of course I am coming from IT background. I ll be able to quickly understand. They charge arm and a leg for nothing. That's why they are secretive. They are soooo rude. People just need their data back.
I think you get the picture
I work for an IT company as a senior IT consultant. 25 year in IT from security software database networking. Very confident too. Our moto "never been beaten" until the management decided to branch out to data recovery. Now
After many many many many months research ,many many many many many $, many many many many hours paid training, many many many many hdds I can say, I am converted.
There is no quick fix, there is no easy recovery, very rarely you have two exact cases especially it is almost impossible to diagnose a fault using couple of lines of text without any information in them. NO, changing the PCB wont fix your hdd, putting it in the freezer definitely wont get your data back. And no one can explain step by step how to change a head.
Alignment wont happen with being careful too.
And begging and WRITING IN CAPITAL wont make anyone tell you the magic secret because IT DOESN'T EXIST.
It takes time to recover, every case is different, and you need equipment to do it. The only reason why some recoveries are quick is because pros have done it before.
Agree here, and would add also:
For some Newbies, they MIGHT be able to fix/solve problems in 10 steps
As for the Pros, might take 2-3 steps with few clicks since they know exactly what they are doing and where to look first.
This is all comes from EXPERIENCE which comes by Practice ( not with Clients drives )
I`ve & (sure most of the Pros also) seen Disasters been made by newbies trying to fix/solve but they do make things even worst and sometimes IMPOSSIBLE to work after.
and really, for some new registered users here when they go Off-Topic and :
Hi, blah blah...
the other responds, Wow, long time no see, and goes into CHAT more than problem/Advice
if you wanted to chat, you may use chatting Apps, but not filling the form with useless topics/posts.
