Hi Technolo-/g/

Family laptop died and my mum wants to get the files off it (mainly family photos that are really important to us)

She said it made a clicking sound. I opened it up and couldn't see anything wrong with it - can I put it into another reader to double check?

Pic of the disk - its a silver mini one.

whatever help you can give is aappreciated.

Put the platter on a record player, it'll get your data back

>> No.67979426

Dissasemble the platters and put them in your dvd drive.

>> No.67979436

plug it into the sata of our desktop then check it out in linux livecd

Please be bait or I'll actually feel so sorry for you

If not bait, then your stupidity is amazing...

And use a magnet to take away the dirt

Whats a platter?
My pc doesn't have one, shall I buy one? any sort of specific type?

>feel sorry for me
I'm not really very good with computers - but I'm learning. Not everyone is good at everything.

i don't know, whats a platter with you?

It's the silver disc inside, looks like a small CD.

>> No.67979655

It's likely that bits of metal dust, sometimes microscopic, have formed around the edges of the disk.

You need to use a magnet to get them out. Find a magnet somewhere and run it along the edge of the disk and then try putting it into the reader again. This should work like 90% of the time.

>> No.67979673

That silver disk is the issue, you need to remove it and use magnet on it.

>> No.67979674

Oh dear...ok anon.

You may have or almost certainly have fucked it already by opening it up like that. Dust particles are now all over the platters (the disk parts) which means the next time the arm goes over to read it at very high speeds, the dust will cause catastrophic damage to all parts of the disk. In short, DO NOT put it back in by this point.
Your only hope now is to screw the lid back on and send it to a professional repair service, explaining both that you heard clicking and you opened it at home. If they can do anything to save it, it'll cost several hundred dollars. Up to you if that cost is worth it or not.

>> No.67979684

If your computer doesn't have one, leave the disc is the fridge overnight to pop the data out and write it down using a pencil

>> No.67979686

lmao, thats bullshit

Lick it.

>> No.67979697

You're fucked up.

>> No.67979711

The second that drive was opened its contents were lost. That is, unless you somehow opened it in a lab environment with rigorous dust filters.

>> No.67979738

any progress OP ?

>> No.67979777

Obviously that's a nickel-vanadium one, you should educate yourself first.

>> No.67979890

As entertaining as this is, and assuming this isn't a bait thread, take this as a lesson to research before you blindly disassemble something. If the drive wasn't fucked before it is most certainly fucked now. Visible dust, particulate, anything, on the disk, and it's game over man. Why do you think they're in a sealed container? It's exceptionally sensitive.

>> No.67979955

Is there a video of that happening? I remember seeing a video of a drive killing itself like that, but then I also remember one of a drive actually working without the cover.
Also what could be done to recover the data after opening it up? Cleaning the platter somehow maybe?

I'm getting opposite messages - somep eople here say it's broken, others are saying magnets - I took the screws out of the middle to find out if the disk model number is written on the back - but ther's nothing there.

My friend said to to make sure it goes in the right way when I put it together again. - so I marked the bottom with a sharpie for future reference.

Is there a reader that can check if the files are ok?

I dont watn to corrupt the folders or relabel all the photos or something. Theres literally thousands of megabytes of pictures and my college work.

>> No.67979985

Drive was fucked when you opened it

You'd have to carefully take it to a professional data recovery than and even then it probably wouldn't matter

>> No.67980026

You ruined a possibly fun thread retard. Learn 2 b8

>> No.67980075 [DELETED] 

You need specialized equipment and isolated work environment to safely open an HDD. Otherwise contaminants (dust, etc.) will get inside and ruin the drive the next time it spins up.

The only solution at this point is screwing the drive back together, taking it to a data recovery specialist, and telling them what you did. Then pray, because they might not be able to help you at this point.

>> No.67980089

I know that is true in theory. Was just asking if there was a video of it, and what could the data recovery company do after the fact.

>> No.67980097

Absolute garbage bait right there. This further proves the theory that OP is indeed a faggot.

>> No.67980104

I mean a video of a drive destroying itself when spinning up in the presence of dust

how come the hulking blackhole-strength ones in the comb assembly don't

Probably because they're in the comb assembly and not touching the platter?
