We have been told many times by our clean room data recovery engineers they have low success rate on drives with stuck motor and they cannot do much on these difficult cases until they begin to use the spindle replacement tool.

When we received damaged hard drives with stuck or jammed motors, we usually consider using some kind of hdd repair hardware to disassemble the hard drives, remove the heads carefully and then remove the platters of the patient drives to a donor hard drive. Well, this is not easy data recovery work especially when there’re multiple platters of over 2 with dumpers between the platters.

We know there’re some data recovery tools manufacturers claiming to be able to swap multiple platters with dumpers but few of them can do it with good result and even some of them caused second damage or permanent loss to our customers’ data which disappointed and annoyed us a lot. There’s one data recovery tools supplier declared their one-by-one platter exchange for jammed-motor drives with dumpers but it seems only their own clean room data recovery engineers are able to use that data recovery technology successfully but none of the rest. Maybe a thousand times’ try will make it.

So what to do to increase our data recovery success rate while the traditional data recovery technology for jammed-motor drives failed?

Thanks to HDDsurgery, we got the spindle replacement tool. It’s innovatively changing the way of clean room data recovery. It’s to replace the jammed spindle instead of head and platter replacement which will be kept in place and alignment for successful data recovery. However, this tool is working so far for a limited drive families: Seagate 7200.11 and 7200.10 and support the following drive models:

Price: Euro2500, so you see the price is not cheap, we suggest this one for very serious data recovery business who have long plans and ambitions in data recovery or computer forensic field. Maybe it’s more necessary for law enforcement and other computer forensic labs because they cannot afford to even a small mistake during their data recovery job.
