1. Replacing the Circuit Board on a Western Digital Hard Drive – So i blew my Western Digital external hard drive. I actually saw smoke come out of it. I have heard that it will cost anywhere between $1000-$6000 for professional "clean-room" data recovery service.
However, before going this route, I was wondering if anyone has actually been successful in replacing the circuit board and successfully recovering the data.
