Data Recovery Services Edinburgh – Seagate Data Recovery Services

JT Data Recovery Services Edinburgh.  The Customer attached the wrong power lead resulting in a burning smell coming from this drive and damaging the hard drive PCB. With the damage to the hard drive PCB no power was getting to the drive.  In this situation sometimes the incorrect power to the drive can affect the head assembly stack,  in this case the customer was very lucky this was not the case.  If the head assembly stack had been affected then this would have doubled the cost of the data recovery.

After Fixing the hard drive PCB we imaged a copy of the drive onto a new hard drive, called the customer and gave him the good news.  Using the hard drive schematics provided with PC 3000 we can access a PDF document for most hard drives including all the details of the PCB layout for any make and model of hard drive.
