Has anyone tried DiskGenius

R-Studio was a go-to program 5 years ago. But, UFS has passed them out and now has much more development for current needs of data recovery. Sadly R-Studio just hasn't been keeping up with all the new encryptions, file systems, etc. that we all need.

Some questions on WD My Password recover

There's a good chance that the G-List is filling up and the drive is developing the WD slow responding bug. It'll likely just get slower and slower until it totally stops responding, to be honest. You can try imaging in reverse by adding in the -R flag to image sectors in reverse order. That'll tell...

Seagate 4TB - Some Help Please! Odd Sounds? Singing?

Yep, I concur with PCLab. Almost certainly was a firmware glitch at the start. Now the data is probably gone forever. I certainly hope this is your own data. If you did this to a client's drive they've got a strong case for a lawsuit.

badblocks shows errors but smartctl and vendor util does not

Given that it is a model ST2000DM001 which is Grenada family, it's a ticking time bomb for failure. If that sector isn't already bad, it's still only a matter of time before that drive fails. But, if you want to know for sure, try opening up sector 268435455 in a hex editor and see if it hangs tryin...

Toshiba

But that's not the reason to delete some folders. Have you done a scan on the drive to search for the data you need? I've seen plenty of times where folders disappeared after bad sectors in the MFT (which is the most common place for them to develop). So it wouldn't surprise me at all if the reallo...

Safe to attach corrupted drive to linux pc?

Generally speaking, Linux won't automatically write anything to an attached non-Linux disk. But, there are a lot of custom builds out there so it could depend on what build you are using. Personally I use ParrotOS which is a forensics focused build which easily mounts Windows drives in read only mode.

User experience Atola Insight Forensic

Atola's focus is on forensics, not data recovery. For the price of an Atola, you really should consider something like PC-3000 which offers 10x the functionality for handling failed hard drives.

Seagate Preamp Pulled From ROM (Requests)

In case you didn't notice. PC-3000 has now automated this when you press this button:

And you can see your preamp here:

That's not your ROM, just an example from some random Grenada. Just reverse the two pairs, so you know this one is a CC 06 preamp.
