All I can say is hopefully it is a “real” repair service. Many places say
they offer hard drive repair, when it’s mainly a data recovery “software”
solution that the majority of them truly offer.

Many years ago, I did work for a place with the clean room, replacing
motors/head assemblies, etc. They (as well as the majority of suppliers of
parts) are long gone, or moved into other business sectors. I know you said
you’re not looking for a discussion, but just wanted to let you know the
place I KNEW of doesn’t exist. I wasn’t at the past TCF, I’m just curious
if it’s someone I knew from when I worked doing it.

Normal Person: Hey, it seems that you know a lot.
Geek: To be honest, it's due to all the surfing I do.
Normal Person: So you go surfing?
