    Yeah you can but it costs an arm and a leg. I had a client who had to have that done but they must have had money like that! The best thing a person can do is have 1) a backup scheme 2) disaster recovery plan in place!

    About 4 years ago i lost all my shit. I had 2 HDD, one fucked up and fucked another one. All my shit was gone, HDD`s were completely bald. I recovered my shit for 100$ bucks. A friend of mine and his group had recorded second album, studio pc HDD`s burned down. 500$ to recover. Happened a month ago. I unno why they didn`t backup their shit, at least songs weren`t mixed and mastered.
    A smaller pieace of HDD u somehow saved, more u`ll have to pay.

    $100 ???? your joints must have crashed. If your HDD crashes you can get that data back rather easily. When I speak of HDD failure, I'm talking about mechanical failure for which that joint has to go to a 'clean room' and that's gonna cost a pretty penny.

    Ill pay and arm and a leg for my Sounds...thats time and effort I took out my life....so if there's a way....Ill get my shyt back....

    what if the hard drive that crashed...had the track for a placement with a major label?....


    Would you pay to get your files off it then.....Doing so would be the right thing to do....thinking all that money bout to come back tri-fold...




    This really is a throw'd azz thread....Im enjoying this shyt....


    I'm sure Dr.Dre would feel the same way....




    Now that wasnt a bad price at all....

    Man, it was long time ago, maybe even longer. Prices were different, more expensive.

    I've heard of people paying a couple thousand dollars and in the end, still didn't get 100% of the data back. It's not worth it to risk it. Buy a dvd burner or even a bluray burner and back everything up

    In my opinion anyone who's serious about saving their data needs to start learning about RAID for their system. Some do basic mirrioring but if you're serious, start investigating RAID 5.

    I believe you a technician or smt. I heard bout one interesting back up method a while ago. I might be wrong, but i heard something like this. There`s a soft that backs up your shit, you just insert blank disc, record some shit onto it and when your system crashes or you lose your HDD`s that disc allows u to back up all your old shit onto your new HDD. Is it possible?

    That sound like a bad azz soft......These days anythings possible...

    I bet that soft also come with a nice price tag too....it will probably be the most you ever paid for a disk....

    I was in Micro Center yesterday....and seen some dvd disc 8 gigs...and they was in the the 30 and 40 dollar price range for just 10 ...so I know that there's disc that may whole even more data...


    Its Possible I'll Say...

    Yeah I'm a service engineer. Sounds possible but it really depends on the cause of the HDD failure. If it's software related there are soft tools that you can use to extract the data from the partition. *A lot of Linux based soft tools can do this. Now I'm not sure if what you're talking about is the same as what a data recovery company will give you, but to me even that is a bit risky.

    yeah you're talking about dual layer DVD (8.5GB) you have to have a burner that does dual layer burning and even dvd's and cd's aren't full proof. You have to get a well known good brand or risk losing data on them. i got a spindle of 100 and I have no idea what happened to them but they're all bad, something happened with the die as they all look burned. So try to save a dollar but ultimately you get what you pay for.
