Cypress, CA, United States, 2010/11/24 - Introducing the world's first commercial head alignment tool for Western Digital desktop hard drives that resolves critical head failure issues by producing precise positioning (down to micrometer level) of heads on the hard drive.
Ji2, Inc. today announced a partnership with Kotar, based in Slovenia, to offer the WD-HA PRO, the revolutionary data recovery tool for head aligning Western Digital desktop drives.
The WD-HA Pro is an essential tool to have when encountering critical head failure with Western Digital 3.5” Desktop Hard Drives. The process is simple: adjust and align HDD heads while scanning with a tool like the Atola Insight. While its transparent enclosure allows a technician to watch the heads hover over the disk surface attempting to read the servo, the three micrometers (arranged in a circle, 120 degrees apart) on the WD-HA PRO adjust to produce extremely precise positioning of heads on the hard drive.
“The developer Kotar fully invested their engineering expertise to develop the WD-HA Pro; it’s simple and user-friendly for all Data Recovery skill levels,” said Ted Fujisawa, President, Ji2.
“We spend countless hours on development and gone through intensive testing, to perfect this one of a kind tool for head alignment for WD Desktop Drives,” said Robert Kotar, Kotar’s founder.
The WD-HA Pro is a powerful tool requiring manual adjustment to achieve success after a head swap. To support the users of the tool, Ji2 will also offer training on the WD-HA Pro. WD-HA Pro Training will emphasize the implementation of this one of a kind solution into the Data Recovery Specialist’s arsenal to improve recovery rate success.
Pricing will be released this month for both the WD-HA Pro tool and the WD-HA Pro tool with Training package. Please contact Ji2’s Sales Department for more information.

Founded in 1960, Kotar (kotar.si, headalignment.com) refocused itself from dealing mainly with office machines into a computer company during the 80s. Through the years of PC service, they noticed a growing trend of broken hard drives and faced several customers who wanted their data recovered. In the past decade, Kotar invested significantly in the area of data recovery. Along with solving many previously unsolvable cases, they began creating new methods of data recovery. By cooperating with scientific institutes and universities and using their long-lasting experiences, knowledge and skills in precision mechanics, electronics and software, Kotar developed the WD Head Alignment Tool. This is the first product in their line of “New Approach” data recovery equipment.
