A while back, there was a violent thunderstorm. After the thunderstorm, we didn't need to access the old drive for a while, so we just noticed - the old drive was no longer accessible. In fact, it didn't even exist. A couple of reboots got nowhere. We then opened up the case and took the old one out, and on the green "board" near the circular metal thingy in the middle of the side with the circuits (excuse my pedantry), were eight metal "dots", arranged in two rows of four. Upon closer examination, the four away from the circular metal thingy were slightly melted
So my question now is - is there any way to recover what was on the hard drive?
