It took about 20 minutes for 6MB. Right, but if it does die during an image from a gentle process by a data recovery tool, those of us who can fix it, will have a much easier time doing so.

June 28th,0: C’est exactement ce que je souhaitais. Its far too slow. Why risk to spend 12 hours on the bad sectors of the first partittion if allyou need is some files on the secound one? Sure, if you need 35GB of st994019a 40Gb do a image of it!!!

This means the item has been inspected, cleaned, and repaired to full working order and is in excellent condition. The Hard Drive connect by: Western Digital RE 3. The lowest-priced item that has been restored to working order by the manufacturer ‘manufacturer refurbished condition’ or sst94019a eBay seller or a third party not approved by the manufacturer ‘seller refurbished condition’.

If it does die, I can fix s9t4019a and complete my image. Not great, but not too bad either. Quite quickly the PC started acting weird and the next day it was already unbootable. I buy a replacement like this one, install it, put Windows on it and get a working laptop for a lot less than a new laptop. What I think I hear is only multiple retries in reading sectors and quite seldomly a calibration “clack”-sound.
