Seagate Hard Disk Drive Parts and Functions- Data Recovery


Hard Disk Drive works very importance of the computer users, it works as a primary storage of computer systems including the servers and CCTV cameras. It's a metal made of Ferromagnetic Materials, the main purpose is to provide permanent data stored in platter disk.

For data recovery it is important to know the major parts of Hard Disk Drive parts and functions. The hard disk drive has different manufacturing. Meaning there is variety or type of HDD according to its manufacturing. Like SATA (Serial Advance Technology Attachment) and PATA (Parallel Advance Technology Attachment) and the new type is the SSD or Solid State Drive that uses microchip for stored permanent data.

  3. ACTUATOR-  Also provides the permanent movement and start of HDD head read/write assembly.
  4. CIRCUIT BOARD OR PCB- Are the logical components that allow the electricity to pass-on to the various components so that the hard disk works logically. The parts of the HDD PCB are the connection interface that provides connection between motherboard and HDD, its connection type either SATA or PATA, In PATA it has a part called a jumper, you can configure your HDD either MASTER or SLAVE. And the power supply connectors that provide a connection between Power Supply Unit and the HDD to provide standard voltage like 12, 3.5, 5 voltages.

Note: Due to the common error of hard disk drive, like the common error of clicking sound commonly on External drives, it is prohibited to open the drives in not clean room environment.
