Hard Drive Recovery

A close friend of mine asked if I could look at a hard drive that he had accidentally dropped and stopped working. He unfortunately opened the drive and removed the header ramp in trying to recover the drive himself but was unsuccessful. In looking around the net I came upon some good videos that give some very good insight on hard drive recovery.


I was however unable to recover the disk without another identical drive as there was mechanical problems with the voice coil/access arm.
