Multiple platter alignment, how to do

I don't want to post much about it because you'll eventually have new DR techs spinning platters like they're a DJ at their cousin's wedding. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: I can already see it, makes me want to cry :cry: I've spoken with a few DR professionals about this and there are d...

Multiple platter alignment, how to do

slingshot wrote:How do you mark them though ?


I don't have experience doing this, but I've heard one can just mark the edge of the platter with a sharpie


Surely not, I would have thought the alignment has to be millimetre accurate (if not more) and the human eye/hand cant work that tolerance

Thinking of getting some of these

How is the manufacture quality on these sets ?
I'm thinking of upgrading my current sets and considering trying these instead of hddsurgery ones.

New 4.70 firmware and DRE available

To be honest I'm not using it that often these days, I do have 3 or 4 paid versions across 2 platforms but until recently I can't remember the last time I used it. The PC3K does most of my jobs and those it can't do get done on the DDI/DRE. I think I use Recovery Explorer Std more than R-Studio now ...

New 4.70 firmware and DRE available

To be honest since you taught me how to use the DRE to split good from bad I quite like using the DRE now and I really like its simple but effective file list generator (ace-labs should adopt that script too). Doesn't sound like I would get much use from it then, I only see HFS+, APFS, FAT32, NTFS a...

New 4.70 firmware and DRE available

12429 Have you got the USB add-on for yours ? Yes, I do. That was the whole reason I bought the tool was for the USB addon. I was looking at a used one recently but it was so expensive I didn't get it, however I would like to get one at some point. Do you utilise it instead of pcb swapping ? Does i...

New 4.70 firmware and DRE available

I updated a few hours before they released it. I would expect nothing less, I bet it costs you a small fortune to update all those bad boys :) Could you give an insight into having the technicians license in R-Studio and what the means for the DDI ? You're the only person I know who's got one. Does...

New 4.70 firmware and DRE available

Have you got the USB add-on for yours ? I must admit when I saw the ability to use anything connected to the mobo as a destination drive I thought that was a good idea. Ive still got a while left on my license so its a bonus for me :) and I'll apply the update sometime this week. One thing I like ab...
