Slow responding ST1000DM003

July 12th, 2018, 7:42

Hey,

can some one help me out? I have a Seagate ST1000DM003 drive. The drive initialises normally, but stays busy for a while.

The first thing I did was, I patched sysfile 93. After the patch, the drive gets ready right after initialisation, but when I try to read the drive id, again I get the busy signal. Can some one tell me, what I can try?

If you can publish the terminal report it will help diagnose the problem,

Maybe a problem with the DOS table?

Do you have access to a terminal?

Have you checked that glist is not full?

Re: Slow responding ST1000DM003

Yes, I have access to the Terminal.
I checked the G-List and it was full, so I cleared it with i4,1,22

After this, I was able to access the User Area. Currently I have the problem that the drive is still relocating the sectors, right after I powered the drive on and while imaging. Even though I have turned auto relocation off in edit HDD ID.

And after a while the G-List is full again.

Can I see 2a(93)?

Try to disable re-location by congen.

Issue the following commands to make your life easy :

Unfortunately, this is what it is (it is a SEAGATE drive....)

This helps, but disabling the relocation will not make the damaged sectors disappear.

Change the head block, you can check them out, I don't think it's going to get much better either.....

Unless you want to recover 1TB of data (or nearby) you would also not try to make a full-image of this drive, you may die in the attempt.

It would be better to clone at the same time as the important data is being retrieved, the first pass with very short waiting times and the next passes increasing the waiting time ( and refreshing all sectors except those read successfully).

Every now and then when the G-list is full, then re-clean and continue with the recovery.....

Good luck, you'll need it.

... Drive shouldn't add defects to G-List just by reading even more if you disable re-location process ...
