BMR Recovery Help?

I'm not very familiar with this BMR file type. I would try out a demo of UFSExplorer Professional recovery and see if it can open the backup images. Just browse to one of them in the software, right-click, and select "open as image". If it's any sort of standardized disk image, USF should ...

Seagate Preamp Pulled From ROM (Requests)

I don't have a sure way to read preamp from Rosewood ROMs directly. Most often, the issue of being able to read but not write SA is resolved by getting a donor with a closer manufacture date.

Seagate ST500DM002 Original board missing

I haven't had a chance to try it out yet. Why not take a test drive, use a non-native PCB and try it out.

WD Discovery Thinks My Toshiba Canvio is a My Passport Slim

This had me scratching my head today. Plugged in a brand new 4Tb Toshiba Canvio HDD that I bought on Amazon as a destination for a case. I happened to open up WD Discovery software, to reset encryption on another drive that I had sold on eBay & previous owner hadn't sanitized. Was quite surprise...

Better to Reformat and Recover or Leave As Is

Seagate drives typically perform a sector size mutation via the USB - SATA bridge board. So Windows can't understand the partition table structure. But, data recovery software typically ignores the sector size and will detect it either way.

Failed clone unallocated 800GB of files on my 6TB Western Digital MyBook

If you shrank the partition in Windows disk management, the free space would have been to the right of the existing partition, not to the left. My guess is that you shrank it, then imaged your other partition over the top of the partition that held the already copied files (overwriting them in the p...

Failed clone unallocated 800GB of files on my 6TB Western Digital MyBook

So how did you create the 600Gb partition? Windows won't allow shrinking a partition from the front end, only from the back end. So you either had to have used some thrid party utility or deleted the existing partition before creating the new one.

Failed clone unallocated 800GB of files on my 6TB Western Digital MyBook

So Disk 4 had both a partition (G:) and (I:) before you copied the 800Gb of data to it? Or did you create the 600Gb partition after you'd already copied the data?

Peculiar problem with WD 3.5 service area issues, $50 bounty!

I can probably solve it for you, but I'd need remote access to try things and see what's going on. Probably there are some damaged modules that can read by ABA but not by ID, or something like that.
