Doomer,

That's a nice and detailed article, I am sure this will be a great resource for some people; maybe even a good sticky. I learned something new too, lol. I did not know the function of the Shock sensor.

Great post :D

It can be dissassembled
I didn't do that because I was too lazy:)

Spindle hub has a magnet inside
And under the spindle hub you can find motor coils and spindle bearing
That's basically it

I have been wondering what the inside of a modern seagate drive looked like. They always seem to reuse the same pictures. Also the very detailed explanation was very apperciated.

Thanks!

Here is something un-typical on this blog - on what happens when you open a hard drive in a non clean room..
Just a documented experiment for reference sake.. I suppose.. and some other strange chain of thoughts...
