Re: [K12OSN] damage hard disk

If you have another drive of the same type (backed up or without
critical data on it), you could try to swap the controller board.
On some disks, this should be fairly straightforward, as the
connection to the electronics inside the sealed drive is through
a non-soldered connector.

It could be worth a try, anyway, and much cheaper than a recovery
service.  It will void your warranty, though... ;^)
