Today my Seagate 1TB HDD broke. The microUSB port broke off the circuitboard (voiding the warranty) that plugs into the main body of the drive (Raptor 3.5" main board V2R1).
I've looked for a replacement board but they're not sold generally and the ones I could find (I think) were hugely expensive.
I'm going to buy a new drive but what I need is some sort of a cable or fix to access the drive and copy the contents onto the new one I get.
Here are some pics:
1) A look at the main body, the drive.
2) Here is the slot for the circuit board and the male part of the circuit board
3) The circuit board, adjacent to the now detached usb port.
4) A closer look at the model of the board.
Once again, I really hope you guys can help me.
tl;dr - Here are some pics of my broken HDD, what do I need to salvage the data from it?
