F.L.A.M.E. Data Recovery - Maybe it Really Does Exist?

Mon Apr 02, 2018 11:31 am

So after noticing someone trying to sell one of these on hddguru I decided to search YouTube to see if there was any video evidence that the tool really does exist. And, I managed to find this:

Looks like it does little more than read/write modules and provide Seagate terminal (all of which I can do in Linux for pretty much free), but perhaps it does exist after all.

I don't know who'd be stupid enough to drop 18000EUR on a tool so poorly documented, but perhaps it does exist.

These guys are Italian.
A few years back they gave me a quote, etc, but I didn't saw nothing new in the next years....
I thought they had closed down...

I notice there is no start menu tray. So I don't think they are running in Windows. It probably is just a Linux tool. Perhaps they just built a GUI for hddsupertool. :lol:

Wait, no...I think it is running in Windows. At least based on this screenshot:

I think I see an icon there for one of Runtime Software's Programs.
