    Hi Koelsch,

    Which shop in SLS? 30 or 40 shouldn't be a problem... much better than those professional recovery centre charge hundreds dollar...

    Just replace the PCB board and you should be able to recover the data.
    What is the brand and model number of your hard disk?

    As long as it's still spinning it can be recovered.

    Seems that there's a lot of such cases around... I just kena 3+ weeks ago, then redstone, now u. I know how u feel man.

    Do you have the exact model number? It's on the hard disk.
    Can take a picture of the PCB board?

    Contact ADVANTECH Peripherals +6282 0555 - if they can't recover your data then there is no charge. Very professional - we recently sent them a disk from work for recovery and they went as far as sending it to their lab in Canada - couldn't recover the data so there was no charge.

    Back up back up, and back up everything. Twice I was too lazy to back up and the cost were in 4 digits. Becareful of recovery services, as long as they do not open the casing, they probably would not do any additional damages.
