Having spent most of today searching online for a way to recover data, I am under impression that my data is lost permanently because Intel's recommendation is to perform "secure erase" with their "SSD Toolbox" program, which would obviously destroy all data before restoring drive to full capacity.
My question is: is there a way to restore data from this drive in any way? Did anyone hear of a successful recovery data story for Intel series 320?
Or is this going to be another bad luck story?
That makes me believe it is a bogus claim, just a form of advertising if you will. Especially since their web site has no reference for Intel 320 model. And finally, the are located in the US (as I am in Europe, time and cost of shipping and restoring would be too much). So, that is a definite no-go for me.
Other than that, there seems to be no reports about someone successfully saving data from damned series 320.
I guess I'll just have to accept the harsh reality ...
I just wish computer related media gave Intel hard time over this, instead of almost complete ignoring and silence that this ugly bug received from media.
