Cleaning HDD Heads & Platters

I've got a few dirty platters laying around that I use to play with and I think that this swab has some potential, but I'm not so sure about the cleaner that comes with it...perhaps if used very sparingly, but it does not evaporate quickly.

Desperately in need of help recovering a file

Here is an abbreviated version was what was suggested on Reddit 1. get a full sector-by-sector clone of the drive 2. try various data recovery programs ( R-Studio , UFS Explorer , GetDataBack , etc) to see which one gives you the best result.

looking for a pinout on a flash drive

It is a fairly common BGA NAND chip that should read in a LGA/TLGA-52/60 adapter supplied with most flash recovery hardware. What recovery tools do you have available?

Recover data from factory rest Blackberry

Without even knowing what variant of BlackBerry you are referring to (BBOS, BB10, Android), I believe that a factory reset securely erases the device. I haven't confirmed this, but haven't yet seen anyone who has been able to prove otherwise.

Help. Platter full of fingerprints, is there hope?

Still curious as to who you sent it to. Please name them for us. Any lab powers on a drive that was previously opened without first inspecting the platters and heads in the clean room, are scammers who have absolutely no clue what they are doing. At best, they are just a front that will then send yo...
