I AM SORT OF BACK ONLINE AND CAN GET SOME BASIC WORK DONE. BUT I HAVE RECEIVED BAD NEWS IN RESPECT OF MY HACKED HARD DRIVE. THE HACKERS DID A FINE JOB, AND I GAVE THE DRIVE TO A DATA RECOVERY PLACE HERE BUT THE RESPONSE WAS UNEXPECTED TODAY:
We are hard at work on your data recovery and have updated the status of WO36249 to declined.
Email sent to the client: At this time, there is some underlying R&D which is being performed for this drive by a data recovery hardware provider located in Russia. iCube has performed a detailed evaluation on your drive and we feel a better recovery result can be obtained until the R&D has been completed on this drive. The model of your hard drive has unique “data recovery blocking” functions which (at this time) prevent other data recovery companies (aside from Seagate themselves) from performing advanced repairs. As much as I would like to proceed w/a recovery immediately, I am benching your case. We’ve determined the above specific to your case by placing a call to our supplier in Russia (yesterday). I would expect R&D to be completed by April. If you wish to visit Seagate’s recovery options, information can be found here: http://www.seagate.com/ca/en/services-software/recover/ They will be more expensive, but if you require the data right away it may be your only option.
I ABSOLUTELY NEED MY DATA TO COMPLETE SOME THINGS, AND THIS WILL COST ME ALMOST $2,000 UP FROM THE QUOTED $900 FROM THE ICUBE PEOPLE. I NEED TO DO THIS OR FACE ISSUES NEXT WEEK IF I DO NOT GET THIS DONE. I NEED MY SYSTEM BACK AND PERFORM THE DOCUMENTS I AM REQUIRED TO DO.
I AM ASKING NOT ONLY FOR MYSELF HERE. ACTUALLY I AM BEGGING AS THIS LAST MILE IS SO CRITICAL TO GET THE FUNDS RELEASED FOR OUR HUMANITY AND I HAVE TO BE FUNCTIONAL TO PERFORM THE LAST STEPS. I CAN NOT STRESS HOW IMPORTANT THESE NEXT DAYS ARE.
A VERY LARGE THANK YOU.
LOVE AND LIGHT
