With a large number of donor parts in stock, we quickly found a compatible motor for the Seagate Exos 7E8 hard drive. Our technicians carefully installed and tested the new motor to ensure it was functioning correctly.

Once the hard drive was operational, we used advanced data recovery software and methods to extract the client’s important business files.
