I have received two questions via email and social media over the last two weeks on reviving dead hard drives.   My first question is always “are you using a cloud-based service to back up your critical data?”  If you aren’t, there are some nerdy tricks you can use to try to salvage data.

I was interested in this episode of the TWIT.tv show “Know How” that covers this specific subject.  It is an excellent review, even if you don’t have a pending hard drive disaster.

But, remember… you can’t beat a backup!
