When my HDD started corrupting data I took it to professional drive recovery service. I was told that it was hardware failure and donor drive is required. Donor drive would be used for parts to replace faulty parts in original drive. I provided donor drive with exact model number and all seemed well. However, today I received status update that the donor drive was "used up" and another donor drive would be required.
Is it normal that more than one donor drive would be required for hard disc recovery?
My concern is that it could have been their fault that donor drive died or whatever that "used up" means. I wouldn't want to have to provide yet another donor drive or pay fortune for their services of finding a matching donor drive.
