Failed Spindle Motor Bearings

Bearing issues can cause problem that range from induced noise into the subsystems all the way to being completely frozen. The latter is a very complex procedure requiring the media stack to be transplanted into a "donor" drive.

Hard Drive Failed Motor Bearing Bearing issues are caused by normal wear, overheated host computers and impact seen commonly in tipped over external drives.

The transplant procedure is performed in a clean room environment only by highly skilled engineers.
