By rawfish ·

I am curious about Data Recovery Hardware that might be available these days that would assist in recovering from failed media, IDE, SATA HD'S, RAID, CD MEDIA, FLASH DRIVE'S ETC.
Keep in mind that I am looking for info. on hardware.Software has worked great in the past and continue to do so, however , it is hardware that I am interested in at the moment ;?]

Any ideas or suggestions?

If you can afford it....

Salvation Data based out of China offers top of the line tools for hardware level recovery as well as platter transfer kits. Definetly not for normal IT people and do not even let a non Tech see these items. But for about 5000 US you can build the base for a professional recovery lab.

Data recovery hardware vs data recovery software

by hddfixer In reply to Data Recovery Hardware

you are correct, data recovery hardware is usually not hardware alone, it integrates and works with data recovery software. With the hardware, the software and application is able to work in a deeper level of data recovery and make all the operation of data recovery secured. Hardware is also used to encrypt the program and it becomes more stable to work.

only some data recovery hardware which is used to repair drives physically are pure hardware. like you need to use some data recovery hardware to replace heads or platters., this websitte does explain a lot about the difference between data recovery hardware and software.
