Question about Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 500 GB SATA Hard Drive
As the title says, spins up then spins down and parks. Can here the click locking in the heads armatures. Was working great in a Maxtor 4Plus enclosure but then just died. I replaced the PC controller board to no avail.
Any ideas would be helpful. It's a backup drive from within an external enclosure. Thought that is what the backup drive was for.
Thanx in advance.
When a seagate spins up, and then you hear it clicking for awhile, and then finally spins back down - indicates it's got a bad head.
If you can find a donor drive, and can get your hands on a head removal tool, you can swap the head assm long (assuming you can keep things clean enough) enough to retrieve your data.
