Recently, I found that DFL released a tutorial on LM partial user sector access on their official website. I heard that someone has solved this problem. It seems that this time it is true.It seems that this time they are the first.

1, Connect COM cable;
2, Enter Seagate F3 firmware repair program;
3, Go to menu-Defects Management>NG-list Operations>Clear NG-list(ATA or COM)
4, Go to menu-Defects Management>Translator Operations>Regenerate Translator LM

:shock: :shock: :shock:

No comment ....

Goes without saying you shouldn't clear the NG-List and even less if you don't have backup of the firmware modules/sysfiles ....

You might get away with this to re-use a drive if you format all sectors later ...

If you do this to recover the data and if you did had entries on the Non-resident G-List there will be translator "shifts" when you do clear the list and data from the first defect that you delete on will be not accessible (you will loose access to ALL LBAs starting on the first defect of the non-resident g-list that you delete).

This is really a BAD idea ....

If the entries in the NRGList are deleted and included in the PList and the translator is regenerated, should not the data be lost?

If you include the entries on the P-List i would think that if done correctly the LBAs wouldn't shift as they would still point to the same PBAs ... Might be wrong.

I will do the test when I can. Although it could work for one firmware version and for another no. I have no idea.

Greetings.
