The European Data Recovery Industry Between The Rich Rhymes &
Often forensic & data recovery specialists, reduce their sales
approach to cheap sales tricks with claims that they have acquired/developed
machines capable of reading SATA RAID servers and conventional hard
disk platters without changing the head. Unfortunately this rhetoric
is being repeated by few reputed companies. Little did they know,
the US Pentagon has had since 9/11 a live advert on their website
seeking clarifications on such "machines or technologies".
Only a month ago the US Pentagon have decided to cancel the ad as
there was not a single reply for 5 years!!
A magnetic disk/ platters is a circular aluminum disk with surface
coated with chrome oxide based coating for the sole exception of
the parking zone, if it is present. In fact, high precision of disk
surfaces and the heads causes them to "stick" to each other because
of molecular attraction forces. To prevent that effect, manufacturers
use special laser serrations in the zone of contact between drive
heads and disks.
The disks demonstrate specific magnetic properties owing to their
chrome oxide based coating (magnetically active substance) or cobalt
layer applied using vacuum deposition. Such coating is characterized
by high hardness and much greater wear resistance compared to previous
models coated with a layer of soft varnish based on ferric oxides
which could be easily damaged unlike modern coatings.
While, sales myths are circulating among data recovery sales representatives
in the USA & Western Europe, advanced data recovery technologies
have predominantly been emerging from the former Eastern Block countries
& India rather than Western Europe and America.
However, new hardware industry is being rapidly developed in mainland
China, with the scope for further advancements within the data recovery
technology fields emerging from China is expected. This is due to
the anouncement that the investment in the hardware manufactring
industry will be trippled.
