Hi, I have 2 Seagate 7200.11 drives that have gone into what looks like a locked state...
I am feeling a bit of a tit, as theres one thing that is different is my drive is a Seagate Barraccuda 7100.10
Yes, a ten, not an eleven
And yes, as has been very clearly stated in the READ-ME-FIRST, this method is ONLY for the 7200.11 series
It is like you ask people how to loosen a no.11 nut.
Everyone suggests a no.11 spanner.
You e-mail the seller, tell him you have two no.11 nuts to loosen and asks if his no.11 spanner will work.
When it didn't, you asks around and people suggested you might have the wrong spanner.
You then buy the most expensive no.11 spanner you can find.
When the spanner still doesn't work, you tell people it fits loosely, but slips.
Then you suggest it might be because you have a no. 10 nut (which the people told you before won't work with a no. 11 spanner)
In this example there are no no. 10 spanners
