Seagate has recently informed Lenovo of two issues that affect the firmware on certain Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 SATA hard disk drives. The two drive families are used by Lenovo on Desktop and Workstation branded systems. Seagate has described the two firmware issues as follows:
- A firmware issue that may result in data becoming inaccessible after a power-off/on operation.
- A firmware issue where operating with write cache enabled and issuing Write, Read Verify, and Read commands in the same LBA range can cause a Read command to return old data.
Lenovo believes that the probability of a customer seeing either of these two firmware issues is extremely low. That being said, Lenovo and Seagate have decided to release a firmware.
It is highly recommended to always use the most recent driver version available.
