    What kind of faults are we talking here? There is no specific device for recovering files from a damaged drive.

    * If the drive was busted because of failed logic board then you must buy a matching replacement board.
    * If it failed because of failed motor or drive head then you must buy corresponding parts to replace them (or buy tools to transplant platter to another working identical drive).
    * If the extreme, that platter was damaged, then only professional help can do you good here (which costs hundred to thousands of dollars).
