I have a non-functioning external WD hard disk. WD Elements or Passport USB type of 500G capacity. Went to a data recovery shop in Imbi Plaza. With just a cursory and dour faced examination, the guy quoted RM 1500 to repair and recover the data to another disk. He said it needs to be done in a clean room as the needle was skipping on the platter and making clicking noises. Will take 5 days it seemed.
I understand the work needed BUT
