Nobody in their right mind is going to run AFH adjustment test on faulty heads on a drive that needs Data Recovery.
Plus it's only going to work on SOME heads that are slow reading but still see servo. Not many drives like that come for DR

Do Seagate's helium drives still use F3 architecture? If so, then this technique may be the only option in some cases (for some shops).

I wonder if anyone who has been successful with this procedure has reverted to the original adaptives and then retested the bad head. I'm wondering whether a "touchdown" on the platter may clean a dirty head.

Hi doomer sir

"Nobody in their right mind is going to run AFH adjustment test on faulty heads on a drive that needs Data Recovery.

Off course you cannot work on licking drives,
Here is the condition, you can run AFH adjust only on the drives where 1 head is stop reading, or reading extremely slow like 1 MB or less then that.
its not only AFH. in video there is DAC, AFH ,RW. some hidden area cannot b visible in the screen, because size become big.

The video is related to repairing of Drive only.

If you wana see the Real Data recovery case, i can show you the case, with a video. and it works perfect.

Many poeple of forum already done this method on there DR Cases, and get good result.

This only work on drives having 1 or 2 head week, slow speed of reading like less then 1 MB.

If some one thinking it work on clicking drive, he is a fool.


Hi fzabkar
"Do Seagate's helium drives still use F3 architecture? If so, then this technique may be the only option in some cases (for some shops).

I wonder if anyone who has been successful with this procedure has reverted to the original adaptives and then retested the bad head. I'm wondering whether a "touchdown" on the platter may clean a dirty head."

Basically i am doing this on drives below , like Grenada, bacall, muskies, muskie plus, moose, pharaoh, brinks, yarrar_5400, yarrarX, etc families,
which we get in my lab for repair.
i have not saw a seagate helium filed drive in my lab for repair hehe.

Yes many person of the forum get success with this, i have done on remote for them.
but if an un-experience person touch AFH and DAC and RW, offcouse he will damage it. because there is certain limit of adjustment, once you cross that limit, after that Heads become Dead.


i am doing this by CHS mode, and its the real result.

i am set the timeout to minimum with Command. and then do a CHS test, for repair Write/ Read CHS test to compare the performance.

Once it repaired the task will stop, if it was not repair or left any zone no-repaired, then program automatic moved to Zone cutting, and cut the faulty zones of a drive in repairing process.

in the post i have written its a Repairing purpose video.
You can use this trick in Data Recovery but only by Reading CHS and adjust, again read and adjust. in software there is section for manually editing all Adaptives.

1. DAC
2. AFH
3. RW

any once can adjust manually. in all this what section have to adjust, its a question. every drive have different parameters.

There is always a formula to adjust the AFH, DAC, RW.

I'm not saying that it's impossible I'm saying it's dangerous.
A drive could MD during the procedure and kill data

I understand that the procedure does work. However, I would like to verify that the original problem returns when the original adaptives are restored. I'm wondering whether the read problem may be due to a dirty head, in which case heating the head may cause it to touch down on the platter, thereby cleaning it.

fzabkar, Hi

For Example you have Grenada drive with 2 heads. you fully clone its head 0 with a speed of 1230 MB/s , but when you start reading from head 1 the speed is less then 1 MB or show a lot of skip Sectors.

In that conditions you have to Adjust DAC, and don't touch AFH.

For Adjusting the Values , this is a limit , what to increase.

have 4 Sections
1. WrCur
2. WrDamp
3. WrDampDur
4. HtRng


these all 4 value's have there own means. what to increase and how many times. it depends. on the Read and Write value.

For Data Recovery just Increase it to Max value of first section .
1 by 4th value on second section
1 by 3rd value on third section
and max value to last section

this will work for Grenada drive.
Bacall need AFH adjustment, and Bacall have 12 Sections. every section have there own means.


once you have a case contact me on whats app or Skype, i will show you on team viewer

whatsapp = +971-52-8991351
skype = waqasali766@hotmail.com
Telegram = +971-52-8991351

Kind Regards

I would expect that parameters 1 - 3 would affect writing only. :-?

    1. WrCur
    2. WrDamp
    3. WrDampDur

In any case, all I'm asking is, if you revert to the original settings, does the speed revert to 1MB/s?

This effect Reading and writing both.

After increase if you fully cloned or half cloned, then after back to original it will become to 1 MB +- again.

yes, these adjustments are pretty nice, i've been doing them for 6-8 years and it really affects success rate, plus reduces demand on parts. My method is somewhat different though...

@RAJOO, it's not as elegant as a software solution, but you can achieve the same end by hand, using terminal commands.

http://www.hddoracle.com/viewtopic.php?f=175&t=2682

Here is a solution using a ZOC script generated by Excel:

I did propose this solution in 2010 ...

The Steps are ok , but he is increasing by wrong way and wrong section.

and he is doing only AFH.
