I have a Samsung 2.5 HDD with a "click of death" symptom. I need to get the data out. According to my research for Data Recovery Centers this is a straight forward job. What is needed is a donor HDD with the same specs, a clean room, and exchange the platters or heads. I have none of the above, so I am looking for someone to do the job, for a better price than the Data Recovery Centers. Trust me, there is NO other way to get the data out as the HDD has a hardware issue and needs a donor drive. The specific HDD model has been reported to have an issue with the reading heads, and there is no software way to retrieve the data. A PCB change and other such attempts will not do the job as well, I have already tried everything possible, as I am an IT programmer myself. As I said it needs a platter or heads change.
I will contact all interested candidates after January 15th, as I will be away till that date.
