I have a nice original NeXT machine, with an HP 660 97548sn HDD in
it. This disk has some data that I wanted to rescue at some point,
and between then and now, the disk had started acting up. The disk
motor will spin, but once the NeXT boot process begins (or SCSI sense
on a PC with a SCSI card), I hear a click, and the motor spins back
down. My guess is that a head is stuck? If so... a) is there a way to
resuscitate the disk, and b) is there someone that repairs older
drives like this, and c) if not, can I do it myself.
FWIW. The data on the disk is, I believe, one of a kind, rare, data,
and the machine is overall in excellent condition.
