    Last time I had a clicking HD I threw it out the window of my third story apartment. Definitely fixed the clicking :cool:

    I thought one shouldn't open the hard drive cover as the disk was spinning in vacuum and it would get irreparably damaged once open in air?

    I think that became a moot point once he took a wrench to the platters.

    No, just a "clean" room is required, and a duplicate drive.

    This allows data recovery services to switch the platter from a dead drive to a good one.

    I want my 57 seconds back.

    Thats not a fail. A fail would imply he is actually attempting to fix a problem and "failed" in the process, normally with a comical outcome. This was just plain stupid.

    Agree I was hoping it was going to shock him or something while he seriously tried to repair it.

    It's a crap shoot.

    Not enough memory causes 'thrashing', to move data back and forth.

    This adds many extra cycles to the read-write heads.

    Hi-bred drives would make this less likely. Straight-out SSD's would finally make this a thing of the past.
