I have repaired one of my drives, the main storage data drive...yippee. I did a PCB transplant from an identical donor drive.
I now have all my source code...probably the most valuable asset I have..I did have some of the more recent projects on the back up system but its good to have the historic code back
Now I have to find a donor drive for my Samsung HD300LJ, which was the boot drive and contains some un-backedup paperwork and documents...These drives are a bit thinner on the ground..ebay has one in the USA but they want too much, plus postage plus probably import costs
If anyone has one...let me know, otherwise I'll just have to keep my eyes open
