Maxtor Diamond Max 80 Plus

Stuck head damage

Often we find the Maxtor Diamond Max 80 Plus frustrating. This drive tends to have an issue where the heads stick to the platter. We have received a dozen of them in the last few weeks and noticed magnetic material stuck in the filters.

All hard drives have a little filter in them. The goal is to prevent dust from getting into the drive. The filters are white; so, it is easy to see when there is an issue. I’ve attached a photo of one we took apart in the clean room. You can see for yourself.
