I, too, am amazed at and very grateful for all the information and advice available here. I am confident enough to try recovering my data - it's not irreplaceable, but would take a long time to recreate, so I'm prepared to spend some time and money attempting this. ElectroGeeza, could you expand on this warning, please? Unfortunately, I tried swapping PCB boards because I read several posts suggesting it and it seemed a good idea at the time. Neither board worked with the other drive, but the new PCB and the new drive are still working. Have I done anything that makes attempting recovery a waste of time?
