WD 500 Gb
Hard drive (board) fried - burnng smell. Hard drive will not spin or make any sounds, it just get extremely hot in one particular area on the board.
I have data that is extremely meaningful to me (years of photo collections)
Can the board be replaced or repaired?
I called some data doctor companies and they want $500 - $1200 so much money!
Can i just buy another board or drive and swap boards- seems so easy to swap. It looks like my data should be intact - just a board issue.
Please help me…
