      +livin la vida locaHi, download SeaTools from www.seagate.com/support/downloads/seatools/ - I would recommend running this SW on PC that has OS on different drive than the affected one, open the SW and click on the checkbox next to your slow disk and then click "Long generic" this will take a while like an 8+ hours on 2TB drive. If the repair fails you might get better results running the bootable version which will run under the windows but this is more for ppl that have OS on the affected drive.

    Why, you will say ? Because I have opened many HDD and they still work fine...
    Show us how much dust there have to be on the opened HDD before it will not work anymore !!!
    I bet the HDD can withstand more dust than you would ever guess !!!

    In moving stuff around I ended up having all my pictures, on a single 4TB drive. It's the first time I'm even now had multiple locations of my pictures, spanning the last 20 years. Last month the drive failed. and got reformatted on top of that.. twice. Tried recovery with 5-6 different tools. no luck. anything recovered unreadable. Whats your video and thought you know I should give it one more go. Found Testdisk (Photorec) which ,bonus is free! Ran it and had it recover anything it found to a second new 4TB drive. it took 2 days on a fast i7 with 64gig of ram, but It found over 600,000 of my pictures!!! Just recreating the catalogue has taken 3 days and it will take me months to sort and rename everything... but wow. I honestly thought everything was gone. Thanks for the Video, and thank you photorec!

      SSD is a totally different beast. You're basically screwed if that dies. The same wit the M.2/MSATA. You CAN be lucky and be able to mount them in linux, and access the data, but the chance is small. Well, technically, the chance is a 50-50 to get something broken to work... ...but that are bad odds in reality.

    there were some hardrives recovered from the world trade centers the were according to a news story back then sent off to a data recovery place; in another country. I do not remember which Sweden possibility. What every happened to those?
    Didn't those two buildings have off site storage?
    after the 1993 World Trade Center bombing I would have thought that they would do something like that.
    Also what happened to the footage of the 'plane' that hit the pentagon which was confiscated?
    I know the data wasn't damaged in any way so where is it. Why hasn't it been released to the public? I don't really care why I just want to see it.

    My wife's Lenovo had a 500gb hybrid drive that crashed. It went from working to dead. I think it may be electronic/circuit board related. So should I try to get a donor drive and try to swap the board? Seems risky, to say the least. You didn't address data recovery issues by type, which I think would help with determining which method to use.
