Hello Everyone - from Colorado

Jared you read my mind. I've come to that same conclusion and have started working on a separate DBA for data recovery only. I believe when you are a computer repair shop and say you do data recovery also the customer gets it in their mind that the rates are similar. They don't understand it's a who...

Hello Everyone - from Colorado

Thank you all. It's good to be here. Computer Repair Shops seem to get a bad rap for DR from some of the big guys. But there are a lot of bad "computer repair shops" also. They come and go here. So yes it's an uphill battle most of the time getting the message out that you are a reputable ...

SEAGATE ST500DM002 PLATTER SCREW TORQUE?

Thanks for reply Jared. This is a 3.5" DM drive. Initially drive was dead, needed to do a platter swap to a donor. I never gave much thought to these screws before: just tightened them up to about what I thought they were. Thought maybe I ought to find out if anyone torques these or knows a tor...

SEAGATE ST500DM002 PLATTER SCREW TORQUE?

Thanks for reply Jared. This is a 3.5" Seagate F3 drive. The heads had stopped in the middle of the platter. They seemed to spin back off the platter ok with no damage seen. Spinning the platter by hand did not seem to show any problems but at 7200 rpm could have been a different matter. I've n...

SEAGATE ST500DM002 PLATTER SCREW TORQUE?

Is it necessary to have a torque spec for the platter hold down screws? I don't see any info like that on any forum. I am dealing with a 1 platter swap and seem to have excessive vibration of the client platter in the donor body. The client drive motor was dead so couldn't determine if it had any vi...
