Date recovery in case of a defective bearing

Bearing stuck, defective motor

Defective motor

Only in very few cases the motor will be defective. Usually the cause is an error in the electronics, defective write/read heads or bearing damage.

Bearing damage

When a hard disk no longer “spins up”, this usually indicates bearing damage. Older hard disk models, in particular SCSI hard disks, are fitted with a ball bearing. Newer units already have a liquid bearing, which is significantly more quiet and above all runs with less vibration. These can seize up due to a drop/impact or due material fatigue. As a result, the disks can no longer rotate correctly. In this case, the entire platter stack (magnetic disks on the spindle bearing) are removed in a clean room laboratory and are disassembled and are subsequently expertly reassembled to enable a final read out.
