    I know this video is a bit older, I'm curious, what difference to this process is there for those new drives with Helium sealed inside the drive, drives in the 10TB+ range? I can imagine… either A. This really sucks and you're screwed. or B. You have to buy a specific enclosure device, to re-pressurize and reseal the drive.

    Just a passive question to the community. I had an Seagate FreeAgent 250G go down after a pretty cold day. I managed to get everything off but it would ONLY work with a tiny amount of pressure being applied to the case. I figure it's a popped connector on some chip, and if that's the case I'm not going to go through the trouble of reflowing the board. I'm a lifelong tech and troubleshooter, but I have d**k's worth of experience with hdd guts, am I missing something obvious that could bring this little guy back into serviceability?

    amazing camera work, missing all the important removal parts and letting the camera fall all the time.

    This was insanely informative for me. Whenever I hear a sound like that I always assume it's the actuator thats stuck. Sometimes the magnets that hold the actuator in place and level can get knocked slightly out of alignment when the drives suffered a hard impact.
    It's really cool knowing that drives had bearing fluid. I wouldn't have even suspected that.

    D**n that PC3000 hardware/software is expensive, much more than the laminar flow cabinet which is a nice cheap alternative to a clean room. Awesome video. Thanks.

    Cool video, i've done it without the clean room you have there, and i used a sticky sponge to keep the head in their own original built-in separators :p .
