I have recovered data from a drive which had an obviously blown component on its control board, by replacing such board with one from an identical (near enough) drive sourced from Ebay. Less hassle than transplanting the platters (which I have never done). But if it truly is only 5GB it will be very old and almost certainly unavailable.

Straw Poll

Were you affected by the geomagnetic storms this past weekend?
Communication disruptions, electrified pipes, random unexplained blue-screens in Windows - the list of effects is terrifying.
