Scratchin’ My Head

This is definitely not what you want to see when the data recovery guys open up your hard drive.


I took a chance that there wasn’t any physical damage went I sent the Cobalt Qube’s drive off for a recovery quote. That being said, I kept my expectations extremely low. It’s a good thing I did, because the once the folks at Datacent opened up the dead Maxtor, this is what they found. They sent me this photo of the damage, along with their apologies:


“Even if we attempt to swap heads they will be immediately burnt out on this scratch. Sorry we couldn't help.”


C’est la vie.
