fire hard drive recovery

Burnt iMac Computer

Believe it or not, Hard drives can take a lot of heat and still be recovered. Just so long as the temperature did not get above 1,221°F (Which is the melting point of Aluminum) there is a good chance it can be recovered. Notice that the iMac above got so hot that it melted the Aluminum case but the hard drive inside did not quite reach the melting point of aluminum.

Notice that most of the plastic inside the drive is melted.
There was also water inside the drive when the fire company put the fire out but this drive is recoverable because he disk surface is still shiny.

Severe Fire Damaged Hard Drive
