Doing things yourself is a rewarding theory. Nothing feels better than getting the job done. Now days with YouTube, the HG station and some home remodeling sites, even the most beginner can almost remodel a bathroom by themselves. Nevertheless, this will not apply to all sectors, and mac data recovery is undoubtedly not one of those businesses.
When an user has lost all access to their own data, and has endured a hard drive failure, a loss of logical idea and frequently a bit of panic ensues. In many situations an entire business may be at stake, or there may be 10 years worth of digital pictures which were lost. The measures you take following a hard drive crash can be the difference between losing it forever and getting the data back.
There are a few, I suppose you’d call them, mac data recovery message boards out there. I do lurk rather frequently, although I do not participate in them. These are areas where information and ideas flow freely amongst people within the business. The sector in general is badly fragmented. Like people do in other sectors we do not work together. There isn’t any real sharing of advice or technology, so these message boards are actually the only area to do this. What’s upsetting is that we’re finding more and more places where people are asking the best way to perform some quite important data recovery practices by themselves. People are requesting things like the best way to do their own headswap on a 500GB Western Digital hard drive…..these drives occasionally get ME sweat bullets when I get them in for recovery, so Ican’t picture anyone simply giving it a shot with any anticipation of achievement. On most of these message boards the first words coming from those with any knowledge of this kind of work is”send it to some professional”, but more and more we’re seeing people who simply refuse to do this. I consider many presume this business is some kind of scam, but there’s a reason it costs so much to recover data, so when you try and do it yourself or you send it to some man who says he can do it for $199, you will find out what that reason is.
