Performance tests

  • February 2009 : we send Maxtor hard drives with failed motors to 7 of our main competitors as a test
  • End result : failure in the data recovery process for all of these companies
  • Which indicates that the HDDSYNC technology is an exclusive breakthrough for the data recovery business

The release of HDDSYNC by Recoveo brings a proven solution for facilitating success on seized hard drives, more specifically Maxtor, Seagate, Samsung  and Hitachi.

Possible scenarios

  • Failed motor (fall) : 60% of processed hard drives
  • Failed motor (fatigue, seize) : 35%
  • Disabled motor : 5%


A few words of history

  • 2007 : first cases of several Maxtor hard drives with seized and failed motors
  • Search for an existing technical solution : none
  • Late 2007 : our R&D department  came up with specifications prior to the development of HDDSYNC
  • January 2008 : creation of a HDDSYNC prototype, followed by different tests and tuning steps throughout 2008
  • Success demonstrated and validated on failed motors of hard drives branded Maxtor, Hitachi, Samsung and Seagate 7200.11, 7200.12 (the inox equipment commonly used with physically damaged hard drives is not working with these brands)
  • 100% success rate over the last 2 years on hard drives with unscratched platters (list of compatible hard drives – non exhaustive)
