Toshiba MK8025gas repair

\015 I have a Toshiba MK8025gas drive from my lap top that has become defective. Yes, I am stupid for not having my data backed up, it was, but there is a long story. I have much important info on it. I brought it to a company that recovers data, and they stated that the bearings were bad that the disk rotates on, and no program would recover it. They said the disk has to be removed in a clean room, then put on something of thiers that would read it and copy to dvd. They wanted a little over $900 for doing that.I am not a rich person, and do not have that much available. Is there not a way for some knowledgeable person to take the same type drive new, and put my disk into the new drive so it will read and work? It seem like that should be a lot cheaper. I hope someone could offer some help. [email protected]\015

Erm, like no.

all drives have air going through, it is NOT vacuum inside of them. only exceptions are specific military stuff et cetra.

so, if you really want to recover the data, first check the "Hard Drive Recovery" videos on youtube to get some basics about how not to screw the data totally. then open the drive and see if the platters are not scratched. if they are, throw it in the basket right away, you'll not recover it even for million bucks. if they are without visible scratches, there still is hope and it'll cost you the price of the identical harddisk to get the needed parts from for instance plus your own time. and take enough time, cause it isn't 5 min =)

piece!

No. This is not possible. The hard drive must be disassembled in a proper clean room or the data on the platters will become immediately, and permanently unreadable due to the dust in the air settling on the platters.

\015\012$900 is on the low end of the price range for a repair job on a hard drive with physical damage like that. I would take that company up on their offer.
