Drive data rescued earlier this year thanks to testdisk. Go figure, another drive crashed. Unfortunately, testdisk said this drive was not available for rescue. Since it was mostly a photo backup drive I decided to try Photorec as recommended by testdisk. I started 5 days ago. Currently, it says 3,105 hours to go. Hopefully, I am still living in 129 days!
I probably should have put the drive back in its original USB 3 case, now that I think of it. I have always used a repurposed case as my testing quick and easy hookup. That thing is probably 15yrs old and slowing me down.
