Hard disk recovery

May 12th, 2009 by Vladimir Katalov

Highly recommended: Burned, Dropped, Drowned: HDD Recovery In Pictures. I hope that you will not encounter into such situations, though :).

Another "funny" story about hard disks: US missile launch data on eBay hard drive.

Btw, if you’re looking for good disk/file recovery software, I can recommend you Handy Recovery (this is not an advertisement!). Simple, fast, cheap, and very effective. I’ve used it (personally) several times — it really works even when most of the other similar tools fail.

    I’ve used Handy Recovery too. Great software.

  2. I can not believe my eyes that you advice the tool i use and advice. I am very proud of myself now. Thanks 🙂

    The software is updated once a year but it is the best of the best for the end user.

    I use Spinrite 6.0 from Steve Gibson. It can even repair damaged sectors and disk’s physical surface!
    Can Handy Recovery do that?

  5. Brutus101, not sure, sorry. You have to try yourself. I just shared my own experience.

  6. Dav — sorry, not sure whether Handy Recovery is compatible with pointec (you mean their hard disk encryption, right?) or not. But you can get free trial version, though.
