Conference Keynotes:


By attending this part, you will learn:

  • A method for recovering system files from Service Area of damaged Seagate F3 HDD. Subtraction, data analysis, and recovery. The evolvement of Hybrid drives line.
  • A new technique for data recovery from damaged Western Digital HDDs that doesn’t require recording in Service Area. Earlier it was necessary to overwrite the SA modules and in case of recording channel’s damages, this method would be inapplicable without replacement of Head Stack Assembly.
  • New automatic mode of expert evaluation of HDD status and recommendations on further work with it.
  • New PC-3000 Express/SAS & Data Extractor multi-controller mode that allows combining diagnostic ports of different controllers in one task. This mode is of current interest for data recovery from RAID arrays consisting of HDDs with various interfaces. This also allows you to connect more HDDs to recover from RAID arrays.


With the new mode of Data Extractor RAID Edition, the determination of the RAID parameters is even easier! What is special about it?

  • Simple and universal approach even in complicated cases.
  • High reliability and accuracy.
  • User-friendly interface and clearness of the results

We will demonstrate the examples on how to make full use of the latest capabilities of DE RAID Edition to define the RAID configuration.


During this part, you will get an in-depth look at:

  • Data recovery from the latest SATA SSDs.
  • New translators in PC-3000 Flash. The issue with the translator’s image building in present-day Flash drives.
  • Analysis and research on an effective combination of existing techniques for improving the quality of data recovered from NAND chips.
  • Issues with recent XOR. The example of XOR extraction in the context of solving the real case with user data.
