    I always used Seagate and WDs
    My Seagate Failure Rate is far more than WDs
    But i never could find ANY Email of Seagate Support Team.
    Not even a Working Phone Number to talk to them .

    My Question :

    Does Seagate REPAIR HDDs ? (Not Recover )

    If you say that Repaired HDD dont last long , so yes i know that but its enough for copying data back .
    Its Better than Paying them for Data recovery, aint it ?

    So Guys Reply

    Seagate repairs HDD and its called Seagate Certified Repair. (a tag attached to the HDD)
    but its not necessary that you will get a Repaired HDD.

    The last time I did the RMA and got a repair HDD in place of my faulty HDD.

    most of the time a brand new HDD is supplied in RMA

    So Is there any 3rd party Repair Shops in Kolkata ?
    G C Avanue , Chandni Chowk ?

    Its odd that they make these HDDs but are reluctant to repair them .

    Repairing HDDs is a very delicate job only specialists can do(their fees itself will most likely exceed cost of HDD by many times). Also opening HDD requires a very special environment.

    Even cleaner environment is required for processor manufacturing facilities(class 1).That's why there are no fake intel/amd processors.

    NO NO...there are well reputed 3rd party companies in India who repair the HDD but it will take more price than the HDD coz the setup of repairing is costly and all the refurbished/certified repair has gone through the same setup

    site is at Data Recovery Software Free Download – Stellar Data Recover

    Don't know them personally but my employer has used them before (for recovering data from server HDD). They're expensive.

    Edit: The link to their data recovery services is at the bottom of the page and not readily visible....
