Thanks Jen. He's definitely not falling out. Looks pretty closed up.
I dunno what they did. From what I understand, the casing of the hard drive itself was corrupted so they completely dismantled it and picked out the individual tiny chips with the data on them and reassembled it with a new casing. It sounds like a tedious process so I guess I can sorta understand why data recovery is so expensive.
EDIT: Tisia, thanks for the visuals! Yeah, that's exactly what he looks like, all closed up. And he doesn't stink but I WAS worried because his tankmate Sherm was clamped and breathing funny so I was afraid he was dead and polluting the water. And good lands, that's a big snail!
