Seagate 7200.11 firmware defect in 500GB, 1000GB (1TB) and 1500GB (1.5TB) Hard Drives -

Seagate 7200.11 firmware defect in 500GB, 1000GB (1TB) and 1500GB (1.5TB) Hard Drives

Seagate Inventory/Firmware Check

I heard about this issue a long time ago but never looked into it.  I figured I wasn't affected since my 500GB drives were running for so long.  I've been using Seagate's since 2002 and to this day all of the drives I have are alive from Seagate.

*Update the bad news is that I realize one of my 500GB's is about to die, it's not even a year old, but is also not affected by the recall according to Seagate!

You can use Seagate's tool to check if your serial number is affected.  My drives have been working for as long as 4 years now so I don't think they are affected.
