I had a bad drive that was no longer spinning up and was due to be crushed for security concerns. Since it was no longer being kept I decided to take it apart and see if I could get it spinning again. A reminder that this is not a how-to video. You should not be opening up a hard drive without a clean room environment as dust on the platters can cause permanent issues.
I opened up a hard drive that we were disposing of and was no longer spinning. This is not a how-to. You should not open your hard drive without a clean room environment because you do not want dust to get in the platters.
