Going Extreme With Data Recovery

Author : Jessica Moorhill

Come on, don't deny it, you love those videos on Youtube where people do crazy stuff and then call it extreme, don't you? Well, here's your chance to make an extreme data recovery video! Though I'd recommend you try this with a hard drive that has no scope of making it alive whatsoever because the methods I'm gonna list here will render them useful for one last shot only,
Beat It
Michael Jackson's famous song is the first to come to mind when talking about extreme data recovery. Lots of times the internal parts of the drive get jammed or bound up so the best way to loosen them up is by giving them a small physical shock. Rapping it on the side with your palm is the most cautious way of doing it, but people have claimed that whacking it with a screwdriver has worked too!
Drop It
Not your clothes, the drive. Yes, the drive! As I explained earlier jammed parts of the hard drive can only be loosened up if you open it up and then do it manually (which is not advisable, considering you'll need a dust-free room for that) or by subjecting it to some amount of physical shock. Dropping it on a hard surface from a height of around 6 inches might help in running it long enough to make data recovery possible.
This takes the top spot. Putting the hard disk in the freezer for about 5 hours may help in shrinking the metallic parts that are stuck, releasing them so that you can get one last shot at data recovery. People have reported that putting it in a sealed bag and then freezing it works best!
Note - Try these only if you are fully prepared to risk losing all data.
