HddSurgery – Head replacement process on 2.5″ Seagate hard drives

February 10, 2018 Jon 11 Comments


This is a video guide that shows how to use HddSurgery tools (Head Combs) to change damaged heads on new 2.5″ Seagate hard drive families 5400.6, 5400.5, 5400.4, 5400.3, 5400.2, 7200.5, 7200.4, 7200.3, Momentus Thin, Freeplay, Momentus PSD and some other families which park their heads on a ramp. During the whole procedure of head replacement, there is no contact between the heads and platters or between the heads themselves. This is only a promotional video. When working with patient drives, clean room standards must be followed.

You can find more information about these tools and many other data recovery tools on our website.

    I enjoyed the ambient electronic spacey music you chose for this video. Very dreamy and futuristic. Mind if I ask who wrote it? Also, thanks for the very detailed instruction for those who want to attempt these repairs themselves.
