Part of the challenge of hard drive data recovery is fixing the hard drive’s firmware.  In some cases, this can be done by regenerating the damaged modules using the good ones.  However, in many cases, it also requires getting working copies of the files from a hard drive with the exact same firmware revision, which is usually a lot easier said than done.  So, in an effort to assist other labs around the world, we are making our library of firmware resources freely accessible.

To gain access to the resources, we do require a password, just to eliminate bots and unnecessary downloads.  If you’d like access to the resources, please send an email to info@recoveryforce.com with your request.

Don’t be greedy and try to download the entire library with over 100GB of resources.  Instead, we recommend that you just download the particular resource you need at any point in time.

Seagate Hard Drive Headmaps

One of the many challenges in data recovery is trying to get a donor drive with a compatible set of heads.  Seagate drives can be the toughest to match, causing a lot of technicians to scratch their heads.  Here is a list of what data recovery technicians look for...

Burned Computers

Although it might be different for other labs, we don’t get hard drives from fires very often.  But, when we do, both the computer and the hard drives tend to be in very bad condition.  Here are a couple photos from the past that we recently stumbled upon and...

QNAP Data Recovery

Over the past few months, we have been seeing more QNAP servers coming in for data recovery.  The issues we have recovered range from multiple drive failure to accidental deletion of the RAID arrays. A few common mistakes made that complicate the recovery efforts by...
