I have a Hitachi Deskstar (HDP725050GLA360) that is making beeping sound and doesn’t sound like it can spin up. I have opened the case and the motor/spindle is seized and cannot move freely. Heads inspected and look OK.
I know there are tools available for some seagates with stuck spindle, but anything for Hitachi? Is my only option a platter swap?
On a side note is a beeping drive always an indicator of problem with motor/spindle even if the drive is spinning up, or could beeps (not clicks) also be heads issue?
