I have never seen a platter with this type of damage. Its almost like the failing heads were in some sort of rhythm.

Is the damage just on the top platter or on all platters?

I've seen damage like this a couple times. Usually from a failed RAID member in a server that's never shut down. Obviously, it was running for quite some time after it failed.

If the client doesn't want the drive back, I will let you know.
