Inside of a Hard Drive

  1. @hitman7112 well, i dunno… it still seems pretty magical to me. i don’t understand how it can delete a folder by moving that thing there. it doesn’t make any sense.

  2. Cool however its taking forever for this record player design to become obsolete. Im waiting for the day when theyll all be solid state and long lasting.

  3. I noticed at the end that the arm didn’t snap back to the landing zone. That makes me afraid to transport a disk if the machine hasn’t been properly shut down prior.

  4. its just mind blowing how there’s thousands upon thousands of tiny magnetic particles on those disc platters representing the 0s and 1s. Anyone know how long these particles can keep their state?

  5. @littlemissknowitall basics, i have now put a portable 320gb into the pc, and put all itunes stuff on it. its also on the pc hard drive. all good i’ll say. maybe another external tho, just to take it all away.

  6. @spago555 If you are wanting to recover the data then I suggest you contact a professional data recovery center and don’t take the chance of really losing your data. For the repair itself, 1st check the warranty – get a new one if it’s under warranty. If you want to take on the project yourself, Google up or lookup videos right here on YouTube on hard drive head replacement – It can be done, but requires the right environment, adequate tools, patience and lots of time.

  7. Cool. I have seen many because I fix computers but all I really do is replace parts. If a hard drive crashes I know how to delete the problem and make it operate normally.

    Btw if u people want to prank call someone. Call: (209) 394-0155

  8. @chocolatevanillaicin Not necessarily, what you want to avoid is dropping or hitting your laptop, especially when it’s on and the drive is being used. You can place drives in different positions but try not hitting them or moving them around while on.

  9. Now keep in mind that if this particular platter is of 512MB (which is a lot, the entire harddrive is often more than 1 platter or disc), then we’re talking about 4 096 000 000 idividual scraps of data, revolving around at 120 rounds per second, spread over a few million concentrical circles with another few million bits on each track (the circles) 😀

  10. Oh wait, no, in my example the 512MB is not much, i was just thingking of that number because the examples on wikipedia are really old… Modern platters probably have more than 512GB onn them, so multiply the numbers in my previous comment by 1000 😉

  11. Just a quickie; i’m not experienced with working with a harddisk, though i have repaired many dvd/cd drives and a load of other electronics.. my girlfriend recently had her main drive fail, and all tests i run with it indicate that the reader head is stuck since it spins up, clicks as if attempting to move it but failing, and then emmidiately spins down, and the drive fails to detect in the BIOS.. should i attempt to fix if the warranty is still good? dare to give me odds of success? ^^

  12. @GronTheMighty Repairing is not worth it if the drive is still under warranty. Just send it back for a new drive. If you wish to practice repairing drives, you can purchase a used Drive off eBay – take it apart and put it together. This replacement has to take place in a completely dust-free, environmentally controlled environment as the drive will not work if dust gets on the drive. It’s not a simple process and that’s the reason why data recovery is very expensive. Look up videos and see 🙂

  13. @joshuamarius Thank you 🙂

    I’ve already decided to go with the lesser of the two evils and return the drive for a swap..

    I do however have 3 older ones lying around that i’m going to play with a little since they’re mostly useless anyway, and thanks for the advice, i’ve already taken in quite a lot of knowledge and useful tricks from videos and a few websites with guides and such.. time to see now if my old 100mb drive from 91′ can be brought back to life! ^^

  14. Everything you see when you look at a computer is Memory. Everything the computer see’s are Proton’s and Neutron’s. Then it send’s these Proton’s and Neutron’s to the Memory card which turns it into something the human can understand. In other word’s a Proton is a type of positive magnetic charge, and a Neutron is a type of Neutral charge. Therefore a Proton = 1 and Neutron = 0. We call these zero’s and one’s: Binary. 😀

  16. Belive it or not Free energy is real,But a few ppl make too many billions from our energy needs to let this technology be known,Get the blueprints for a free energy motor at LT-MAGNET-MOTORdotCOM ,take part in the revolution!

  17. So in fact this noise that we hear coming from our hard drives everytime our computer process something comes from the mechanical „arm“ that moves quickly to gather data… interesting video!
