My client experienced a hard drive failure in his desktop computer a few weeks ago. Since the drive was unresponsive to normal operations (trying to read it from a docking station where it was not recognized in any manner), it was sent to a well known data recovery service. They've had the drive for a few weeks and finally responded that "the drive has electrical malfunctions that’s causing it to drop out at 2% every time. We are trying different methods ." I thought that recovery services could work around any technical/physical issue to recover data. FYI, the computer was protected with an APC battery backup/surge protector.
i am interested in insight about the likelihood of being able to recover data from a drive with electrical problems and recommendations of data recovery services that might be prepared to deal with it.
Thanks in advance for your insight.
