Data recovery Seagate 500gb

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
Hi Guys,

I have a customer with a "dead" Seagate 500GB HDD. There is no power after wrong power adaptor was plugged in - Seagate was in a Maxtor USB external housing. I am looking to transfer the PCB from a donor drive.

Any ideas where I can get a "new" drive or just the PCB? This is the spec.
P/N 9BX134-568
Firmware: SD35

Alternatively, I need to send it to a lab as the data is needed within 10 days - any recommendations? UK based preferably. Dataclinic in Manchester look OK but anyone had experience with them?

Thanks in advance.
