    you need a pc3000 card to start with. cleanroom cabinet. Head removal tools etc etc.

    Probably $6K will get you started, lots of reading. Also techs already doing this wont share knowledge. You'll have to learn hard way.

    This is something I am looking into as I have had a couple of jobs come my way recently. Deepspar and pc3000 would definitely be the way forward, Deepspar released a new product, Rapidspar I have yet to read any reviews for this though. DDRrescue, you are also going to need at some point a small clean box and as above a variety of head removal tools surface mount soldering equipment if your going to get into rebuilding hard drives at a mechanical level for data extraction then there are a load of specialist tools your going to need. When I am back at my workshop will get a more detailed list up for you.

    It really depends on how deep you want to dive in data recovery and what you want to focus on. HDD recovery has lot's of well established companies and requires a sizeable investment of time and money. SSD is even more secretive and quite frankly difficult. Flash recovery is also very opaque and requires expensive readers and licenses.

    As Gurmon says, experienced techs don't share their knowledge, at least not like in other areas of repair.

    As for RapidSpar, there are a few online reviews, mainly on recovery oriented discussion forums and are generally very positive. It is targeted towards computer techs (upgrades, virus removal, managed services, etc.) who see a lot of drives needing some recovery work. Not every drive requires advanced data extraction and many times, a proper cloning of the drive, along with some advanced functions of the RapidSpar will suffice. The idea is that the difficult recoveries will be sent off to the established pros with DeepSpar, PC3000 etc.
