    Welp, came back from a few days away to my HDD making a beeping sound and disappearing.

    Took it apart today, it spins, as it reaches a certain speed the heads begin to move back and forth maybe 10 times then it stops spinning.

    It isn't crucial I get the data off but it would be nice...

    Help appreciated :)

    Hm? By took apart I mean I just took the case off, checked heads were properly retracted and disc had no major issues.

    Relatively clean room, didn't touch anythnig...
