If it's unsafe to solve Slow Responding or edit HDD ID on SMR drives, how to speed up slow response these drives ?

Thanks

I tested Slow fix in several SMR, though the fix didn't help but it's not harmful.
I failed to recover only one SMR HDD where secondary translator found unreadable, even PBA read didn't give any useful data

Indeed, Slow Responding solution is not safe to apply in SMR drives. If heads are bad, they can damage 02 module which is very important, and data access can be lost.

This means that cases can be different. I had a few cases with damaged 02, and same FW donor 02 modules sometimes were not able to get full ID, sometimes we got full ID but all data were zeroed.
