Data Recovery Myths – Logic Board and Platter Replacement

April 17, 2018

disc data recovery atlanta ga

While many parts of your computer can be replaced to bring it back to normal, the myth that your hard drive recovery can be as simple as replacing certain components is only partially true. If you’ve experienced a crash, then you can understand the desperation many people go through when trying to find a cheap solution to recover the data. Even though the logic board replacement and platter fix solution is not free, some people attempt to have this service done to save lost data and recover important files on their hard disk.

First, it’s been reported that efficient clean rooms cost companies hundreds of thousands of dollars. It’s safe to say that your local hardware component technician does not have the available funds to provide a clean room for their customers. The first error in this myth is that whoever claims to be able to fix hard drives likely does not open them in a safe, uncontaminated room like they should do. While you may consider this a viable fix for your broken drive, consider our article on clean room and its specification before attempting to have the platters or logic board replaced.

Now, there are several refurbished sites that are mostly in countries such as India or China who promise to fix hard drives back to working condition. The refurbish drives and promise to get the working for years. While some hard drives may last for many years, the chances of a good refurbished drive actually lasting for long periods of time are slim. These refurbishing sites will replace the parts and hide bad sectors give you back a formatted hard drive that is supposedly fixed. While you can take the chance of your hard drive working, you still may lose data. You can use this as a form of data recovery by taking data off the hard disks while it is still working, but no one should expect a refurbished product to last many years. In fact, refurbished disks should be used with the expectation that data recovery will be needed in the near future, so make sure to use a good storage backup system.

Replacing platters is just as dangerous as replacing the logic board in a hard drive. Data recovery, once again, needs to be done in a low contaminated room with few particles that can cling to components. Replacing platters is a delicate process that can ultimately ruin the drive altogether. Hard drive recovery is dependent highly on the tools that are needed to open, repair, and replace components. Most local shops don’t have access to these highly advanced technological devices, so it’s not possible to repair the platters properly. Other things to consider are the firmware and technology that allows the hard drive to read the data on the platters.

When deciding on a data recovery method, use professionals that can recover your data. Once you receive your data, the safest way to keep it stored is replacing the drive altogether rather than parts replacement.

    I recommend you to install FTP on your home router (just plug a flash disk to the usb port and configure it using the web interface) and then use this app to backup automatically:

    U are threat for innocent people. By watching your video a lot of people might root their device without knowing that it will void warranty and their device may be bricked. I my self is a rooted user and know flashing rom but a lot of people do no know that.

    So in this video u should mention that rooting void warrant and may soft brick a device.

    If don't have external card then titanium backup will backup to sdcard so you can move it to the computer all the files and then you can move them back when needed and use titanium backup to restore them

  • #countryboycansurvive April 17, 2018 at 1:34 am

    but the titanium app won't be there after installing new rom.

    My question is how do you get the app "google play store" with out installing Gapp from a zip?
    Every time I install cyanogen 9 or 9.1 and then install Gapp from zip, when I reboot phone the install wizard stops working. I've tried it like 5 times. And had to go back and install CM 7 witch works fine, no install wizard shut down on reboot.

  • Ahmed Amr April 17, 2018 at 1:34 am
