Apparently if you can buy the *exact* same hard drive you can transplant the platters over. Or as others have said, try the freezer trick.


Apparently that is out dated. With the older models sure but they state the newer models PCB contains so much information unique to that specific hard drive that even if you switch over a similar PCB it will not recognize the drive.

It costs nothing to try

And do not stick it in a bag or water may condense - just place it in the freezer

then be prepared to copy as much data as you can


Do you always not use a bag Apo? Because these guys seem to be placing the hard drives in ziplock bags.

Nope.. . it doesn't matter. Your freezer isn't a swamp and it isn't in there very long.
