Hard Drive Short DST Check: Failed
Failure ID: 9TU47D-7KAAJA-MFPWLJ-60XC03
Is it possible to recover my hard drive? Or am I out of luck? Would like to get an idea before trying to go to a place and spending $100+ figuring it out.
Also, I ran the diagnostic test a couple weeks ago when I first had issues and got a different Failure ID code. Not sure if it means something new is wrong, or if it's just indicative of the different days I ran the test-- old ID was 9TU47D-7KAAHU-MFPWLJ-60UB03.
You may want to consider replacing the 2.5" mechanical hard drive with a better performing 2.5" solid state drive (SSD).
As far as data recovery...you can buy a SATA to USB cable. Plug one end into the failed drive, and the other end into a working PC's USB port and see if you can read/copy the files from the failed drive to the PC.
