Clean Room G-DRIVE2We got in a Western Digital drive that was making noise when mounted. We opened the drive cover in our Clean Room and the issue with the drive was Stiction. This is where the read/write heads that hover over the platters get stuck on the platters, not allowing them to spin, thus creating that strange sound. After safely removing the heads and inspecting them, we will then put the drive together and work our way around the scratch areas of the media and recover as much data as possible.
