Got in a G Drive SSD 2TB. The customer was on their computer while the drive was mounted and after the computer randomly shut down, they were no longer able to access their drive. Let’s see what’s going on! 🤔

Opened a Seagate 120GB in our Clean Room because the drive was dropped and was making clicking sounds. We inspected the read/write heads under a microscope and it was clean. Time to do a head swap and move forward with recovering our customer’s data!

Opened a Western Digital 2TB (WD20NMVW-11AV3S2) drive in our Clean Room because the drive had mechanical issues. We were unable to read from platters 6 and 7. There were noticeable scratches on platter 7. Time to look for a donor to move forward with a head swap.

We just got in a Seagate 3TB where the drive was having issues being recognized by their computer. One minute it would recognize the drive and the next minute it didn’t recognize the drive. Let’s see what’s going on with this drive😉

The customer’s Western Digital 2TB (WD20NMVW-11AV3S2) drive was running super slow. The customer was able to access a few files but the rest weren’t accessible. Let’s diagnose the drive and see what the issue is.

The customer mentioned their Western Digital 1TB drive was not being recognized. After diagnosing the drive, we tried powering on the drive and there was absolutely no power. After further inspection, we came to the conclusion that the read/write heads had a bad Pre-AMP. We then opened the drive in our Clean Room and unfortunately the top platter was completely damaged with a very deep scratch. Next step is to remove the read/write heads and inspect their condition! Let’s move forward!

A customer was hearing beeping sounds coming from their Seagate 2TB (ST2000LM007). The issue is Stiction, where the read/write heads get stuck on the platters where the data is stored. Time to remove the heads and platters safely and inspect them under a microscope. Let’s go!

Got in a Seagate (ST3000DM001) 3TB where the drive was not being recognized. The drive was not dropped and is not making sounds. Let’s see what’s going on and hopefully recover our customer’s data!

Opened a Western Digital 2TB drive in our Clean Room due to Stiction. The customer took advice from a YouTube video and made the drive worse by opening the drive and moving the heads 😵 Now the main issue will be bad heads and will require a head swap. The top platter had heavy media damage as well as damaged read/write heads. We would need to remove the read/write heads to further inspect them.

Opened a Seagate 1TB (ST1000DM003) because the drive had a mechanical issue. After opening the drive in our Clean Room, we realized the top platter was clean as well as the read/write heads. There was no damage. The issue can be media degradation, severely bad unreadable sectors, or media damage that is new and just developing. Let’s continue working on the drive.

Our customer was hearing beeping sounds after they dropped their drive. We opened the Western Digital 2TB drive in our Clean Room and realized that the issue was not Stiction (beeping) because the read/write heads were parked where they should be. After inspecting the read/write heads, head 4 was damaged. Under the microscope, we were able to see very light contamination on this head as well. If the head was bent up, we would definitely have had heavier media damage. We found a good match and now it’s time for a head swap. Let’s go!

Opened a Western Digital 2TB (WD20SMZW-11YFCS0) in our Clean Room. We didn’t see any visible or microscopic scratches. The main issue is that the read/write heads were stuck on the platters. Looks good so far. Let’s move forward!

Opened a Western Digital 4TB (WD40NMZW-11GX6S1) in our Clean Room. The drive took a drop and is making clicking sounds. After opening the drive cover, there was obvious signs of media damage on the top platter. We removed the read/write heads from the drive and inspected them under a microscope. Most of the heads had physical damage. Let’s move forward with a head swap.

Opened a drive in our Clean Room because the drive was making clicking sounds. The top platter just had a couple of specs of dust and contamination inside. We don’t know how the other platters look yet. Time to find a donor and move forward with recovering the data.
