How to depop head for WD HDD?
Sometimes when the
heads are corrupted, the drive will click or there will be many
defective sectors. In such case, we need to depop the malfunction head
to ensure normal work of the drive, but at the same time we will
sacrifice the capacity of the head.
The operation is different to depop the primary head and other heads. If you want to depop primary head, you should first perform SA L-Format and then modify the configuration of heads in ROM. Then you should reset the power to refresh the console box. Then perform SA L-Format again and upload modules of donor drive with corresponding capacity (namely, the capacity after head depop of the original drive). At last, carry out HDD Rebuild.
For other head, you could directly modify the configuration of heads in ROM.
