Cool, thanks for sharing your experience about data recovery from hard drives, dude. I also came to this forum to gain experience, but it's all hard for me to understand. I tried a couple of times to recover deleted data from my computer on my own, but I did not succeed. As it turns out, it's not that easy. I still have a lot to learn. So far, I have to turn to professionals who provide DATA RECOVERY SERVICES. For now, this is the only way to solve my problem. I will be very happy and grateful if you continue to share your experience. This is very interesting and useful.

Looks like maybe that plastic thing is something the prior company used to remove and inspect the platters??? Never seen that before.

I was referring to the second picture with that plastic tab stuck to the platter. The busted parking ramp makes sense and I've seen cases like that before.
