You cannot exchange commands because this is not a model with firmware or terminal locked (P/N: 1CH164)

To access the terminal you have to short-circuit the correct points or apply a Virtual Loader.

Could you indicate which cut points to enter the terminal?

Why are you still messing with this?

You’ve already been told it’s almost certainly a heads issue, yet you’re still spinning it up and down making it click and potentially causing even more damage. :-(

Agree ...

About customers ST2000DM001 hdd .
Seem 3.86 gb.

I don't have clean room. I gave that HDD to a professional recovery firm.
They say
"There is a very thin starch on upper platter. Cannot see eyes. Only can see with microscope. And after head swap % 90 new head would be die . So possibly % 10 we can recover this hdd."

Oops . Is that true. ? I asked is there no way to partitial recovery. He said ni för Seagate hdd.

I would get back that hdd. I will head swap in my way. I would try to get data from this hdd.

Hope tha the firm that you did use was a reputable one and not some sort of computer repair shop.

A any rate it will be interesting to know the outcome of this !!!

If you decide to go forward with this "recovery" and gamble with client's drives please do come back to this thread and tell us if you did manage to get the data back or at least get the drive to read something !

Also let's see how many sets of heads you will need use for this recovery attempt !!!

Regards and wishing you good luck ....


Goes without saying you shouldn't be opening the client's drives outside a HEPA 100 clean room or laminar flow workbench ... doing so might prevent further recovery attempts by other (more competent) data recovery firms.

Why don't you try for example to send the drive to someone like drHDD for a 2nd opinion ?

memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=31114

He does have a huge amount of experience with head swaps and the price is very cheap as well (in the majority of cases) so you will be far better than attenpting to open yourself a client drive without clean room even more if the drive is un-recoverable by a reputable data recovery firm ...

That was a professional recovery firm.
I have tried more head swap before. Some was good attempt. Some not. But Seagate ..... not easy I know.
Customer doesn't want to pay much money. Overseas solution not cheap. Customer won't accept that cost.
I will try my chances. ))) good luck to me. I give myself % 30 to have good result. Customer accept that risk. )))

You even didn't ask for help, how you can tell that overseas solution is not cheap?
Usually It is not cheap if somebody already tried to do something and made case worse. This is for sure.

Agree !

If the other professional DR firm already failed you will have way more chances to get the data back with @drHDD rather than attempting to do the head swap yourself even more without any clean room facility ...

You give yourself 30% chance when a data recovery company told you 10% if they tried it (one that can't even do partial seagate recoveries, so only have very basic capabilities) :roll:
You will be lucky to have a 3% chance at getting any data at all :lol:
