Question about Seagate (ST3300601CB-RK) (ST3300601CBRK) 300 GB Hard Drive
There was a lightning in the area and all of a sudden i saw sparks flying out of my USB port. Few minutes later i noticed my machine was not reading my external drive. i booted the device and still had no luck. i tried listening to the drive and heard it was not spinning inside.
Took it in for data recovery and found that the spindles are jammed solid.
quite depressing as i lost over 250Gig of my HOUSE music.
I have decided to stay away from Seagate and ordered two Western Digital drives.
After a surge caused by lighting , does not matter if u use Seagate or WD drives ! And if u can u should check all u're components (if a pc, specially u're power supply) for damage, blackened components or inflated capacitors, because u'll might get later on in time problems and u;ll not know what caused them ...
The data can be still recuperated, if u go to a special data recovery company (they remove the spindles and mount them on other devices) but is expensive. And if it;s just music u lost.... ain't worth it !
