The HDD on one of our Toppys has failed. I think the reason is because when I replaced the PSU capacitors a few years ago, I didn't replace all of them (it was before all of them was recommended).

I've put an old HDD back in the Toppy for the meantime and replaced the PSU with another, with all the recommended capacitors replaced.

I've plugged the bad disk via SATA directly into a PC. When a run TopfHDRW, it doesn't find any files. But when I run TopfHDDoctor, I get the output below (I've truncated it due to the number of files). It finds all the files, but says they all need changing to 0MB. I didn't write the changes to disk, just in case.

What is the best way forward? Are the files recoverable?

Thanks
