Would anyone be able to recommend any good hard drive repairer/data recovery place in Wellington?

My external WD Passport powers on but it sounds like the mechanics inside are broken/stuck (can hear it boot up and sounds like it's trying to spin but gets stuck)

I tried to take it to PB Tech and they said that Western Digital use a different connector (kit standard SATA) for their external hard drives so they wouldn't be able to access.
They said I'd need a place that specialises in WD hard drives....

As above.. There are no wellington based data recovery specialists I am aware of, although I think Datalab have an office / drop off location, the work will actually be done in Auckland.

 

+1 for using Datalab by the way.





Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.
