How long was your biggest recovery?

Right now i've got an 8Gb flash drive that I've been re-reading bad NAND blocks for about three weeks. Despite only having about 50Mb of unread blocks left, nearly every file is affected by a few bad sectors still.

Can this SSD be recovered?

I don't get the obsession with destroying perfectly good hardware to erase data. Too many people keep reading conspiracy theories perpetuated by morons with no understanding of the technology. The moment you did the secure erase the SSD generated a new encryption key and became forever unrecoverable...

Can this HDD be recovered?

It was 100% unrecoverable by all present and future data recovery tech after just this one step. Everything else you did was totally redundant and wasteful.

Sounds like you've got heads in there that aren't a close enough match to actually write data to the SA. No other option than to replace again with a closer match.

If the heads are bad, what other fix are you expecting to find other than to replace the bad part?

ddrescue estimates 40 days to complete

Given that it's a 4Tb Seagate, the odds are very high that the drive has a problem with the media cache or bad sector reallocation functions that's causing it to get stuck in a busy state. With professional tools like PC-3000 you can edit the drive's firmware to disable those functions and stabilize...

Help. Platter full of fingerprints, is there hope?

I wanted to know your opinion on this guy's video from HDD recovery services. He put some glue with a glue gun in a spot of the hard drive so that the new head would not hit the scratches on the platter and get destroyed.

Cut and Paste after that Formated SSD EXFAT recover!

Are you sure that T.R.I.M. wasn't enabled? Most modern OSs have it enabled by default, so it takes deliberate effort to turn it off.

Are the recovery programs finding any old data at all?

Just because someone asks the same question on two forums doesn't make it SPAM. For that, there would have to be some self-promotion or advertising going on.
