So I am trying to perform data recovery on a 1tb WD External HDD. The connector on the HDD itself is that funky little Micro-b (Micro USB 3.0) that seems to be incompatible with every other connector in the world!
So I have isolated the issue to be the actually connector that's soldered onto the board. My question is: Is there a way to recover data from this drive?
vmem - Yeah that's actually how the inside of these look. That's a stock photo, not of what i'm working with. I have that cable type already too, it's just the connector is bad. I have already worked with known-good cables.
Nukemaster - i've thought of that, but I was thinking to myself there HAS to be an easier way to go about this...
