    I had a brown out or power surge tonight. I went to check on my computer (which was running :o ) and It cant read my master drive. I try both my HDDs in the other computer, my storage drive is fine, but my master drive seems dead. I boot up the computer and I cant even hear the drive power up. I feel no motion from it either. What are my options for getting the data off it? (Im not trusting it again, I dont know why a ran this drive for as long as I did...)

    So I've discovered.... recovering 40gigs wont be cheap. Whats the best place for profesional data revocery? As in, best compromise of quality and price.

    Most places are geared towards services for the enterprise - i.e. you might as well buy a new car.

    No chance in hell you will get that data off there...... unless you wanna pay some hardcore bucks.

    Backup next time :slap:

    I mean you could luck out and it's just the power portion of the drive that is dead, the platters may be still good, but the only way to know is to transplant the platters into an identical working drive.
