Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3750640AS Drive Fail Not Spinning Up

Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3750640AS hard drive is not spinning up, turning slowly.

The fault was the drive was not rotating up to full speed and then ticking constantly.

Opening the drive, I found out why:

Head is missing from this Seagate Barracuda
Full of dirty ground up filings
Soiled dust filter

This website explains the phenomenon of the platter coating coming off and confirms that these drives suck so many ways!

Here is some photos of another drive of the same model.  This one has a bearing issue, constant squealing.  A good reason to avoid these drives!
