Basicly the title, My primary drive PCB cought on fire and I would like to try to recover the data for as cheap as possible. I was informed by reddit that simply replacing the PCB with one from an identical drive won't work.
Any ideas on how I can recover my data or am I better off just starting over.

HDD specs:
Seagate Barracuda 160gb 7200.12
(st3160318AS)

depending on how important the data is you could try going for one of the hdd repair shops, but they tend to be very expensive (upwards of 500€/£/$ as my parents experienced) however i would still try top ask.
i dont think it is possible to just swap the pcb but i'm no expert in that area.
