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.February 25, 2011 at 4:07 am #4691
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.February 25, 2011 at 9:44 am #4692
Thanks! That’s just the information I wanted. I’ll be trying that when I get my hard disk and computer back tomorrow!February 25, 2011 at 12:05 pm #4693
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.February 27, 2011 at 6:38 am #4695

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.
