    Hi,
    My hard disk was damaged. Apple advised I install a new one, so I went a head with that advise before thinking of trying anything. I will be bringing the original hard disk home. Will it be possible to try to access the original disk disk-drill? If yes, will I need any particular connectors etc? Thanks.

    You can surely try and scan the old drive for recoverable data. The best way to connect it to your Mac is an external USB pocket.

    Thanks! That’s just the information I wanted. I’ll be trying that when I get my hard disk and computer back tomorrow!

    I looked at the diagnosis from the Mac store. They couldn’t get the disk to mount. I can tell this is a problem for disk-drill. Out of curiousity, are there ways to encourage the disk to mount? Or is the Mac store being unable to mount a face plant on this? (I hate to ask about other software– but it seems diskwarrior claims to help on that.)

    My data is not mission critical and not worth $1000-$2000 pro-suggest, but I’d like it back and I’m willing to try a few things before giving up. So, any advise for how to proceed would be welcome.

    Nope, this is not possible. Even if someone says it is, don’t believe them. If a disk doesn’t mount due to physical failure, there’s no software able to do this. It’s the case for a data recovery lab.
