Samsung Spinpoint ST1000LM024 Stuck at BSY, no terminal

Yep. There's some clicking, sounds like seeking to me but it's hard to tell, then the clicking/attempts stop. My guess is the head is stuck to the platter based on the terminal output. Its too quiet to hear if it's spinning specifically

Error Trying To Recover From HDD Clone

You can use ddrescue to clone to a partition or file depending on what you want to do. Let's say your source drive is /dev/sda and the drive you're cloning to is /dev/sdb. You can just do: ddrescue /dev/sda /dev/sdb ddrescue.log If you want to same the clone as an image, which is my suggestion, let'...

Samsung Spinpoint ST1000LM024 Stuck at BSY, no terminal

Aah thank you for your help on this Jared, I feel like such a dope! I've got terminal access now : ). Drive still showing as BSY. I figure there's some issue accessing the SA. I tried going to HDD Initialization -> RAM Head Map editing and cycling through heads 0-3. Each time, I put "0,0,0,0&qu...

What do you use to "preview" files to clients?

For those of you who offer previews to clients where they can decide whether it's worth paying for the recovery or not, what software do you use, why do you like it or not? We're looking into a bunch of options and I would love to hear some feedback from people who have experience with various tools...

Samsung Spinpoint ST1000LM024 Stuck at BSY, no terminal

This model just uses a SATA -> USB adapter, so I just removed the adapter and used a direct SATA connection. The COM section is connected using the Samsung adapter which is connected to the PCB USB Terminal 2, which is then connected to the PC via a USB cable on a USB 2.0 port, and the UART bridge s...

Hello from beautiful Oregon!

Just wanted to introduce myself. I have been doing data recovery for 10 years (logical and ddrescue mainly) but just recently got a PC-3000 and am really diving into the more complex stuff. I'm hoping to meet some of y'all and share and learn with you. Looks like there's a lot of great knowledge dis...

SAS to SATA Converter/Connectors.

I use the HighPoint RocketRaid series and have been very happy with those cards, you can get them used on eBay for pretty cheap.

Strange file corruption (Murphy's Law)

My guess would be that the MFT or equivalent where it stored data about those folders was somehow corrupted, so your data recovery tool reported "good sectors" and those sectors were fine, but they were the wrong sectors. That would explain these symptoms. If no logical file recovery tools...
