did it feel like it had disks spinning?
iv seen videos of rehardwaring a drive, but it does not look Fun.
Doesn't spin up at all, which usually means it's seized or the controller is fucked and not supplying power properly. Either way it means taking it apart. How do we at this stage in our data tech not have a device you can just stick the platters on to do a single read from, writing the data to cheap drive? 20 years ago we could write from a halfway-degaussed magnetic tape drive to digital device, with no further loss of data. Now we can't even do a raw write. I get that it's much more complicated tech, but you'd think reliable data recovery would be an important factor in a ubiquitous product like hard drives.
That's why all businesses store their data on drives in a RAID. My personal data storage drives are in a RAID specifically to help reduce data loss (plus also in the cloud).
Thhe cloud you say
