Sad one this, Dell laptop and an external lacie 1TB hard drive came in last week from a house fire, the house is totalled and the cat got a real fright but everyone got out ok. The cause of the fire was a halogen down light but apparently this is very uncommon so dont go getting worried about the ones in your kitchen.
The 2 drives were...
- 500GB Western Digital WD 500GB BEVT: Recovered
- 1TB Lacie External USB3 (Seagate 7200.12): Un-Recoverable
Here are all the images I took and a short video, this is probably a good advert for cloud storage.
