BraydenHade has made a comment on DIY: Top secret of data recovery:
Ive swapped several times and for me it has always worked. I feel like there is a lot of misinformation against this practice out there because data restoration companies fear loosing customers to this practice. I've done it three times with no problems and 100% success so far.
Hope for "clicking" hard drives
"Clicking" hard drive's another name is "clicking- death" hard drive. In another words, this kind of hard drives are inaccessible, so people call them "dead hard drive". But don't give up, We bring hope to "clicking" damage hard drives. With our proprietary technology, we can recover data even from the "clicking" damage hard drives. Do not give up your Hope:
1. scan the front side of your hard drive and both sides of the circuit board and send us the photos. If you cannot take off the circuit board, one photo of the pcb is fine.
2. email us the photos to: firstname.lastname@example.org
3. we email you back with our recommendation or the best solutuion to you
How people say about us::
You have made me one happy lady!!!!! I was told my hard drive had the "click of death" and was non-repairable. In your very capable hands you have given me back decades of irreplacable pictures and I have learned to save pictures in several locations.
Please transfer the pictures to a new hard drive, $538 is a very reasonable price to pay for your expertise.
Thank you! Thank you!!

At last yesterday I received the duplicate PCB.
I've installed it and the HDD lives again !
Thanks a lot.
Thank you for my files! I received my new hard drive yesterday and am just thrilled. Now that I have it, would you please send me my old hard drive. Sincerely,
Hello, I have received the new board a day ago and was able to recover all my data!!Thank you very much!! You have saved my (digital-) live :-)Best regards, Andreas John
Thanks for the link. I had all the hardware laying around already, and just followed the instructions given in a follow on link. THey were clear and accurate. I had successfully revocered my drive with no data loss. I really appreciate the help, and thanks again.Derek
I would like to let you know I received the board you sent out and was a success getting my HDD up and running.
Thank you so much for your patience and expertise in this matter. The data saved was sentimental and my family is very grateful for your help.
I wish you all the best,
I am ecstatic to report that the new PCB board revived the dead hard drive, and I can get to all my documents and photos. I was using Mozy online backup but learned during this session they didn't have nearly all my files. Thanks for your help getting the new board to me quickly. And, mainly, for being there in time of crisis!
I got the board yesterday (Thursday, February 2), a few minutes ago I finished Drive Recovery (Fix the BSY error), and now I transfer my data.
Everything worked perfect.I really want to thank you for your patience (I had so many questions), your help and your excellent service.Best regards, Stamat IT Engineer
I have received the circuit board yesterday and it is perfect working order. Thanks. Apart from the long wait I am pleased with service. I will recommend your company to anyone who may have similar problems with their hard drive, Thanks, Pitt GREAT BRITAIN
I wanted to send a brief note of thanks and appreciation. I found your service online and ordered a replacement PCB for a drive that had experienced a power surge. I knew the drive itself was still good but that the PCB and power connections had been shorted (I could smell smoke). You filled my order quickly and I received it in just a few days. You were kind enough to include the mini Torx driver so I could complete the repair immediately and did not need to go out and purchase another tool.I installed the PCB easily and quickly and got my drive up and running in a matter of a couple minutes. Thank you for your excellent and prompt service. I hope I will not need to use your service again, but if I do, I will certainly contact you immediately!Regards,R. Lyndn Burnm Jr
I received the PCB, changed it and... surprise, works!!!!!! After eight years...Thanks for your attention.Now, I want the following PCB:
Hi, I just received the circuit board and screwed it all on and BAM! My hard drive is full of life again! I knew there was nothing wrong with the platters, I knew it!
Thank you so much for selling this! The most unlikely piece that I thought I would never find! You have saved years of photos and archives of work. I even e-mailed Seagate for this part and they told me that it was not possible and I had to pay £500-800 to recover it! Moral of the story: listen to your heart.You have saved all that data and a perfectly good hard drive that has been a loyal piece of technology from being discarded.1 million trillion thank yous.Antoney.
Thanks so much for your service. The part arrived yesterday. I installed it with no problem. Once I ran chkdsk, I was able to recover all the data on the drive.You guys rock.Thanks!
Thank you! the object has arrived today, as a Christmas gift! HD has also begun to function. Thanks again and happy holidays!

The board worked great. Thanks. Was able to save a lot of memories. Are you in Washington state? Doug
I do backups but I am lazy and don't do them often enough on my wife's desktop. Recently, something went terribly wrong with her computer and the smoke came out of all the components. I could visibly see a burned out component on the hard drive circuit board. Even the CD/DVD player was ruined. This computer is where we store all of our family pictures. I have some of them backed up on DVD but what a hassle to restore all these. I ordered a PCB from HDD-Parts. The shipping was great. I received the board in three days. They even included a Torx tool. Installation was easy and I had the hard drive back in the computer and copying files to a new hard drive within 15 minutes of bringing the new PCB in from the mailbox. What a relief! Thank you HDD-Parts for great products and fast shipping. I will recommend you to all my techno friends.
I was able to recover my data from 10 years ago! THANK YOU SOO MUCH!!! GREAT SERVICE GUYS!
The part arrived and resolved the problem.Thank you.
I received the cloned controller board this week and was able to retrieve the data from the disk!! Thanks for helping make this a successful recovery.Dave Aarney
