  1. How to repair a Hard drive


    Hi

    i have a 2 TB Seagate internal HDD, I am unsure what happened, it’s not very old and has always been fitted inside a PC case, so hasn’t been knocked.

    Windows refuses to boot up with it connected. I unplugged the Sata data lead, allowed windows to boot then reconnected it.

    windows drive manage shows it as bad, with no option to do anything.....I ran seagate tools for windows, the short and long test passed, but when I selected fix everything, it failed......did a sector test with Aome partition manager and it started reporting sector errors immediately, but allowed me to rebuild the MBR ?

    I realise I may have to give up and dump this HDD, but want to be certain I have tried everything first. I tried seatools booted from a USB, but couldn’t work out how to use the program to repair the HDD. See image for screenshot

    is there anything else I can try ? 99% of the searches for HDD repair tools, simply give data recovery software, there IS a difference, but that simple premise seems to be lost on many advertising their wares...

    many thanks in advance

  2. Overclock your hard drive!!!

    Heres a much easier hack that I realized quite a few years ago that really does work!

    REQUIREMENTS:
    • Hard drive with molex power connection.
    • PSU with more than 1 strand that has molex plugs on it.
    • Wire strippers, soldering iron if you're fancy, electrical tape if you're not.
    STEPS:
    • Take the strand of connectors from your PSU, and decide which one will be the donator for this overclocking adventure.
    • Cut the yellow and orange cables, then twist them together.
    • Find the power connector you've chosen as the overclocking connector, and release the orange cable from the connector. Now use your preferred method to bind them together, then place it back together.
    • Plug in a drive and feel the speed!
    Congratulations! You've just overclocked your hard drive!
