Seagate ST2000DM001 not working. Is it a Mechanical or PCB failure?
I have a 2TB Seagate hard drive which is not being recognized by my desktop computer. The model number is Seagate ST2000DM001. This problem started to happen after recently receiving a Window System Error of Unknown Hard drive. I restarted my computer and it was no longer booting back to windows. I unplugged my hard and installed it onto an external enclosure and tried to detect it by connecting to a different computer. I was unable to detect the hard drive and on the other hand my faulty drive was also preventing other drives from being detected. The drive is spinning perfectly without unusual sounds. I want to know either it is a Mechanical problem or PCB failure? I have also ordered a TTL adapter to test my hard drive. My data in it is very important and have no backup at all. I need solutions to recover my critical data from it.
Most likely it is not a ‘Do-It-yourself’ job if your data is very important. Please to do not try to input commands by TTL adapter into your hard drive as you may loose all your data or make it very difficult to recover. Using TTL adapter without proper information might cause more damages to your drive.
According to the situation mentioned, your hard drive is neither facing any mechanical problem or even a PCB failure. Firmware issues are quite common in most of the Seagate hard drive models including Seagate ST2000DM001 and most likely it is the same issue with yours hard drive. If a firmware issue is confirmed, it would be easy to fix for someone having professional repair tools like PC3000. Most of the data recovery firms can fix this problem and recover your data in no time by using PC3000. Search for the best data recovery specialists in your city and let them examine your hard drive rather than applying ‘Do-it-Yourself’. Your data is recoverable and only a data recovery expert can recover it by use of professional tools.
