Better Options

In reply to: Rarely.

DriveSavers is fine if you don't mind dropping $2,000 or more on recovery for a case like that. However, there are actually much better labs out there now. Many of which don't charge half of what Drivesavers is billing people.

Perhaps if the OP tells us where in the world he is located I can recommend a good lab to handle the case.

Data Recovery

In reply to: portable hard disk corruption

Hi, sorry to hear that the drive is corrupt and therefore the data cannot be recovered.

Is the drive corrupt or just not detected?

If the data is corrupt, we can recommend you to use our data recovery software or our data recovery that is done in a high technology lab.

And if the drive is not detected, you could try to connect the drive with other cable, to another port and Mac.

Good Luck!
