Seagate F3 HDD hot swap is one very important data recovery solution for Seagate patient hard drives with bad sectors in the firmware area.
Seagate F3 hot swap is not easy for many data recovery engineers, with the standard methods and steps like other drives, the patient hdds may click and not detected at all. This is why the success rate is very low when the Seagate hard drives have bad sectors in the service area.
Dolphin engineers have added new firmware repair function in DFL Seagate firmware repair tool and this new function will help with easier hot swap at high success rate. With the new functions, users are able to load necessary parameters from ROM to RAM for hot swap and even able to load translator to ram which can handle the SA-bad-sectors cases directly.
When can we use the new firmware repair functions for F3 hot swap?
1, When the heads are read only;
2, When the translator is corrupted, but translator module is located on bad sectors;
3, When defects modules and translator are read only and the translator is corrupted;
The new Seagate F3 hot swap functions are available soon in the new software, users will download from the user-only forum and fix more new Seagate cases.
