Toshiba MK5065GSXF Data Recovery is not one difficult data recovery case study for one DFL user in Uganda.
When this patient drive was connected to drive, the user powered on the patient drive and the drive could be ready but very slow to be ready.
When trying to scan the bad sectors, the patient had many bad sectors in the front and also some bad sectors in the middle and ending parts. The user tried the common solution to clear g-list and virtual translator and tried to extract the files but the program got stuck due to the weak heads.
For this drive, the DFL user was suggested to set up disk imaging project and set up head map for selective head imaging. Considering that the bad sectors affected a lot in the front, the DFL user configured the imaging to image the drive backward and disabled the head 0 to image, one important thing was to enable the Toshiba auto virtual translator. In case during imaging, the head read/write ability decreased and the drive may lose ready status. With the auto function, this could be fixed easily.
During disk imaging, the DFL user in Uganda was suggested to enable the high-speed imaging mode and multi-pass imaging to image the good heads and then image the bad heads, finally over 90% data was recovered without head swap.
The user set up new file extraction project to extract the recovered data from the target VHD with the source drive image.
