To recover lost data from Western Digital undetected portable hard drives is very common data recovery case in all data recovery labs.
This kind of patient hdds are usually corrupted due to the firmware failure or head failure, common pc users or IT engineers without professional data recovery equipment are not expected to fix the failure and get lost data back.
Professional data recovery engineers are able to handle these cases properly.
Data recovery tools required:
DFL-SRP USB3.0 or DFL PCIe for HDD firmware repair tools
DFL-SRP USB3.0 or DFL PCIe for Data Extraction
HDD ROM Chip Pin Reader
For physical head or platter damaged cases, engineers need to have clean room environment and professional head and platter swap tools
Data Recovery Steps:
1, Users need to use HDD ROM chip pin reader to backup the original ROM from the original HDD PCB;
2, Write the original ROM to donor compatible SATA PCB and install the donor PCB to original HDD;
3, Enter DFL-WD hdd firmware repair program by kernel mode and disable 02;
4, Firmware restart and re-enter the program;
5, Slow fix and test firmware modules and find out which ones are corrupted;
6, Repair damaged firmware modules;
7, Enable 02;
8, Firmware restart;
9, Enter DFL-DDP data recovery program and set up one disk image or file extraction task depending on the hdd health/bad sector situation;
10, Get lost data back easily with DFL-DDP data recovery tool.
