Hi everyone,

I have an Seagate GoFlex external harddrive with a 1TB 7200.12 harddrive inside. https://www.cnet.com/reviews/seagate-freeagent-goflex-desk-review/

The PCB just died and I have a lot of data in it that I would like to recover. Is there anyway I can recover it? I did a continuity test on the bigger diodes and I am getting readings. What should I do next? I have taken a few pictures of the PCB:

Could this be the culprit?(looks like something is leaking) If so how can I fix it?

Please advise,
Thanks
