Many Seagate Rosewood ST500LM030 ST1000LM035 ST2000LM007 data recovery cases should have been fixed and the lost data should have been recovered. But the final cruel fact is that the cases failed and the data got lost pamanently.The reason for data loss of Seagate Rosewood ST500LM030 ST1000LM035 ST2000LM007 hard drives can be simply SA lock, firmware failure and physical failure, for different failures, users need to use different data recovery tools to fix the hdd differently.
For few cases, users can simply unlock the COM terminal and the drive can get ready for data recovery; For few cases, users can unlock the COM terminal and run commands in terminal to get data back; For most cases, users need to unlock the SA, backup the Plist, NGlist, Translator, etc and then run commands to repair or need to repair the hdd by SYS read/edit/write functions. For physical cases, users need to use the Seagate LM head comb suite to swap heads in clean room environment.
Many users simply unlock the terminal and run M commands to regenerate translator without backup the original translator, plist, etc and this will mostly cause partial sector access failure or even full disk bad sector failure and then almost impossible to get the drive fixed again. Because the partial sector access fix utility doesn’t work for rosewood LM drives, for each bad sector to be added to NGlist, it takes minutes or even longer to regenerate the translator, if there’re many bad sectors, it takes too long to regenerate or it will hang the program. This is why users must always backup the important modules first after unlocking the SA.
So to all data recovery engineers, when you receive Seagate Rosewood LM hard drives for data recovery, be sure you are using the right data recovery tools with proper functions to get the cases right.
