Data Recovery Myths – Logic Board and Platter Replacement

April 17, 2018


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.

    when I first saw this I though that excavator isn't going anywhere but I was surprised when they got it out

  • Barry R. Brown April 17, 2018 at 12:40 pm

    I love how the road trucks there can have the powerful lights on the roof facing forward. Our laws here don't allow it, but it is only illegal if you get caught using them on the highway.

  • Geo Thomas April 17, 2018 at 12:40 pm

    Because I've been running hoes for 45 years I will say that to get a machine THIS stuck you have to either be badly inexperienced or stupid. Probably both.

    everybody thinks driving a mini-excu is easy, it's fricking way harder than 20t+, that thing tilts so easy lol.

  • MrSDSTRIKEBREAKER April 17, 2018 at 12:40 pm

    Put the guy on the small excavator (Takeuchi?) on the big Volvo excavator and this will never happen again! The guy could change the sheets on a 5* hotel bed with that thing! Kudos!

  • S. Nillas April 17, 2018 at 12:40 pm

    The operator on that excavator VOLVO is not really skilled because that machine has a high speed and smart moving. Must be the operator was also smart to avoid accident like that.

    what was that guy thinking he was doing with that little shovel?

  • scot woodz April 17, 2018 at 12:40 pm

    that's what they call a
    Skid Row. I think the loggers used that technique at least a hundred years ago.
    what a mess
    great job

    Remember operators, if you end up in this situation, park your machine as to make it easy to extract, so you are not pulling a machine and it's load out of the doo.

  • George Pierson April 17, 2018 at 12:40 pm

    I would have just buried it and said nothing.

  • Specter1065 April 17, 2018 at 12:40 pm
