Hi My girlfriends HD failed the other day, with a lot of her portfolio pictures. She has a new HD and the computers working fine. My question is this - on a simplistic level, could transfering the failed HD platters to a new enclosure work as a means to retrieve the info. So if I buy I cheap working drive of same size/manufacturer - say 20 gig. Take it apart and remove it's platters. Then replace them with her failed disk's platters ( 160 gig ). Would I stand any chance of retrieving the data? I really can't afford the £600 ish I'm being quoted to get it done professionaly. cheers all.
