HDDS Motor Unstuck Tool Seagate 7200.11/.12/LP/XT is an improved 7200.10 tool. We recommend it for following series of drives:
Seagate Barracuda 7200.12
Seagate Barracuda 7200.11
Seagate Barracuda LP
Seagate Barracuda XT
We added extra pins for better grip on new Seagate models. It still can not substitute platter or spindle replacement, but it can help in certain cases.
In cases when a hard drive motor is slightly jammed, it is better to try and loosen up the motor then to risk a platter swap procedure. If motor does not free itself in 10-15 minutes, it is most likely that it will not free at all. If such thing happens, we recommend our Spindle Replacement Tool.
