We were recently referred a hard disk that another data recovery agent had been unable to recover data from for the client. It was going to be referred to a clean room laboratory to be dismantled, but the client had baulked at the high fees quoted. The client wanted us to have a look before resigning themselves to losing their data forever.

We tried mounting the hard disk in our machine, and the disk was receiving no power at all, and was not mountable, so we knew immediately that it was going to be a hardware issue, and we would probably need to investigate the Printed Circuit Board (PCB).  We did some research on the particular disk involved, and tested the diodes on the PCB with a multimeter. Blown diodes can occur when the wrong power cable is connected to the powered Hard Disk Enclosure.

Sure enough there were signs that one of the diodes on the PCB had burnt out, so we removed the particular diode from the circuit and tried the Hard Disk again in our external enclosure. This time the disk spun into life and we were able to recover the data from the disk for a very grateful client. 

If you find yourself in a disk disaster, don't panic, we can help. Contact us.

 

jobsinthanet.info is a jobs website for the East Kent region of Thanet. It is based on the drupal recruiter module, created by Epiqo. It is a really excellent module for recruiters and clients alike. We created a Twitter bot that grabs posts related to the search "Thanet jobs" and displays them instantly on the front page.  This was created with help from this helpful post. The jobs data is from bespoke recruiters and from xml feeds.

The site runs on an AWS EC2 instance for increased scalibility and uptime.

www.cratespace.co.uk is the website for the East Kent artist-led organisation that supports contemporary visual artists' research and practice. 

One of the main concerns was the existing website was developed 8 years ago, using the XOOPS Content Management System, and it was necessary to import nearly 8 years of content. This was achieved using the Drupal Feeds module, with an .htaccess rule added to redirect old image urls.  Content types were assessed and because the client is a visual arts organisation several Slideshow and Gallery modules were utilised.
