I have a 2TB Seagate ST2000DL001 drive (was in an enclosure). Suddenly today it no longer starts up. I removed it from the enclosure, plugged it into a USB adapter instead. When I power it up I can hear a one-second faint beep every few seconds.
I froze the drive in a zip lock bag for an hour, but it behaves the same.
Am I in the realm of drastic and expensive measures now? I assume I'm out of "tricks"? Any advice?
