Back in 2008 Seagate developed the new technology name F3 this started with the Seagate 7200.11 hard disks. Not long after they came out a firmware issue was discovered that rendered the drive 'bricked' the Seagate forums became inundated with complaints about the drives.
We are able to recover from all Seagate F3 series of drives including 7200.11, 7200.12 desktop and enterprise (ES) versions.
We are able to access and repair the firmware on Seagate Lombard family and can patch the ROM on most newer Grenada models that do not allow firmware access in the normal way.
This new work has been done with the help of our colleagues from the GDRA mainly by our ROM reverse engineering experts in Hungary. This highlights one of the advantages of membership of the GDRA.
