Title: Data Recovery Over Hard Disk Failure
Post by: darkknightza on February 23, 2011, 04:12:36 PM
Magnetic Force Microscopes (MFM)
Magnetic force microscopy is a powerful tool for high-resolution magnetic imaging of most data storage media. As the density of magnetic media is higher, the bit becomes smaller than the wavelength of light, so optical techniques can not resolve it. General MFM is capable of imaging the magnetic domain of several tens of nanometers. Also, MFM is almost simultaneous with measuring the surface characteristics of topography and roughness of the same area with sub-angstrom vertical resolution.

Hi there, I have a WD 2x500gb NAS drive that has stopped being recognised by explorer.  I believe they run of a Linux system.  Can you recommend someone / firm that can access and recover this data at a reasonable cost.  many thanks Nev
