Seagate Momentus Recovery

If you have a broken Seagate Momentus hard drive, we can help recover your data with our specialist data recovery services. We have been recovering data from Seagate hard drives for over a decade and it doesn’t matter if the disk is from a Mac, PC or an external case. It’s a good idea to contact us as early as possible to discuss your disk problem. Even if you plan to have the drive looked at somewhere else first, we can at least give you some advice to prevent further data loss.

About Seagate Momentus Hard Drives

The Seagate Momentus disks are 2.5″ disks for portable use. They are commonly found in external cases, or as bootable disks in MacBooks & PC Laptops. Some common versions of the Seagate Momentus are the 5400.4, 5400.6, 7200.4 & 3200.2 and come in capacities starting around 80GB. There are versions with either 7200 or 5400 RPM spindle speeds. They also come in depths of the standard 9mm and slimline 7mm (branded “Momentus Thin”). With the addition of the Momentus XT, we also now also see hybrid SSHDs, combining Solid State Disks with traditional spinning Hard Disks. There were a series of Momentus drives that had a notorious problem as we reported here.

Seagate Momentus Recovery Process

If you decide to use our service to get your data recovered, we will ask some questions by phone or e-mail about how the failure happened. You don’t need to be an IT expert to answer these questions, but it can help us get a better idea of the fault. We can then send a job number and shipping form, so you can get the disk booked in for a diagnosis.

Once your disk arrives we note the model & serial numbers into our system and let you know that we have started work. We carry out a quick visual inspection to make sure the warranty seals have not been damaged. We also check that the external cover screws have not been removed.

Stage 1

We will carry out an external diagnosis to find & repair any faults with the drive. These could be things like electronic damage, firmware corruption and partition damage. If recovery is possible within our first stage process skip to Completion. If not see Stage 2 below.

Stage 2

If we have not been able to access your data within Stage 1, we will recommend our Stage 2 cleanroom process. You can either cancel the recovery at this point, or move to Stage 2. In Stage 2 we will take your disk into our cleanroom for internal examination & repair. This could involve new heads, motor, or a combination.


We will get back to you with a list of the recovered files & folders to confirm success. We can also talk through the data with you by phone if you prefer. Once payment is received we ship the data back to you. If you would like to download the recovered data from us instead, please let us know as we have various options for this.
