Fire Damaged Hard Drive Data Recovery

This video was created by Malcolm Jamieson our chief Data Recovery Engineer and shows a fire damaged hard drive we were able to recover data from. The hard drive recovery was particularly difficult because not only were all the labels destroyed in the fire, but the hard disk was immersed in water from the fire-fighting. DTI Data Recovery has proprietary methods of dealing with both fire damaged hard drives, but also hard disks that have been in floods and water.

    Thanks for very interesting information. Can you tell me, apart from undamaged recovered digital data damaged by a fire, what does digital data look like when it actually does sustain damage from overheating from a serious fire. Is it just black or is it static or does it skip? Or something else? Many thanks.
