revive a hard disk

by opatzg In reply to revive a hard disk

another quick fix is remove the hard drive,hold it firmly in your hands and snapit down sideways in the air, what you're trying to do is to get the spindle to let those circulr plates to spin again. You don't want to be to violent with it and personally, a hammer will never fix the problem but it may make you feel better. Normaly they fail because they aren't spinning from a build up of junk stopping the spindle from letting the motor turn it or whatever lubricant is used starts to fail. either way it's time to back up and replace. It makes a good secondary drive for anything you don't care if you lose.
Good luck
