Question for people buying donors + boards on ebay

As I assume many of us do, I re-sell donor drives and parts (once being wiped completely!) on eBay as a secondary revenue stream. I also often buy donors this way. For those of you who buy donors there as well, how does a listing donating part of their profits to charity affect your buying decision?...

Coronavirus COVID-19 Affecting Data Recovery Business?

Certainly also seeing a dip in sales here in a pretty active outbreak area of the US, expecting a "all non-essential businesses to close" order to come down the pipes soon. I got an e-mail from drivesavers saying they are now offering free faster turnaround on cases, indicating to me they ...

PC-3000 SAS backup and restore firmware

It looks like maybe PC-3000 doesn't support this drive model. Are you sure it's supported?

Clients who want HFS+ formatting for delivered data?

How do you deal with this request? It seems almost all recovery tools are for Windows or Linux, this is how our shop is run at least. Do you use paragon hfs+? Do you have a seperate Mac just for this purpose? Curious as to how y'all handle it. My perspective is that it is our job to recover the data...

Drill presses?

How difficult is manually applying that much pressure? Or are you using a powered one?

Best way to export to single file image in data extractor?

It seems data extractor has a number of ways to export an image to a single-file raw image like ones created by dd, but I don't find any of them particularly reliable. Sometimes this is needed when another data recovery tool is needed for the logical portion of the recovery. Whenever the system is u...

WD Passport all sectors in H0 timeout but H0 working?

Thanks for the advice, perhaps it is media damage or truly head failure. Just an odd set of symptoms. When it comes to head testing, the test within the WD utility is unreliable, as you now see. ACE actually added a head test within DE when you click the drop-down of the headmap icon on the right o...

WD Passport all sectors in H0 timeout but H0 working?

I've got a puzzling case. It's a 1TB WD Passport drive, I swapped SATA board & ROM and am able to read with all heads except one (H0) in data extractor/sector edit. All reading modes fail with this head. But when I am in utility and do Service Area -> Head test, H0 appears to be working just fin...
