Spent like 3.5-4 hours melting cans again.

This much slag.

For this much aluminum.

From my guess I have around 35-40lb of clean aluminum now. :nod:

pulled my broken m.2, it was actually this really weird old one we put in just because we had it.

put it in an enclosure and was able to pull the data, crisis averted

replaced 480gig m.2 with 2tb 870
Was it your O/S drive or data drive? What was it doing before you had to pull it?

Glad you were able to recover it.

Take a look at macrium reflect free you can make images of entire drives as backups and pull individual files off that image if you need to.

Never understood why HDDs were called 'spinning rust'. All the platters are aluminum and fucking hell a lot of it. Need to get off my ass and pull the platters from the rest of my dead drives. Probably got a couple ingots from the ones I had done already.

Probably have about 50 pounds now. :bowdown:

Went through about 25-30 pounds of propane in the last day. :hmm:

EDIT: Weighed aluminum. 41 pounds. So I've 75 pounds of propane to get 41 pounds of aluminum. Not a solid investment. :hmm:

If any of you ever get in to a position where you are purchasing hardware for a business, do not ever buy Dell. God damn their support is awful. Have been working with them for over 36 hours with two hours of sleep on a basic upgrade that they fucked up. They hire the most unqualified people that read from a script and have no idea how any of this works.

You're also going to get a constantly rotating account team that struggles to do next to nothing and then is replaced as soon as you start to build a rapport with them.

Depends on the product and the support team. Source; dealt with Dell @ my last gig.

Which product?
