The new 500GB 7200.11 drives have been having problems (many ending up as bricks). Seagate issued a fix a few days ago that on paper seems like it would help.

Seagate has now issued a fix for the fix which was supposed to correct the original bricked drives.

The new fix should fix SD1A firmware, which was issued to fix Barracuda drives a few days ago. The company claims users have nothing to worry about, and the process should revive the bricked drives without causing any data loss.

 

Seagate claims it will have the new (and hopefully final) fix online within 24 hours
