Seagate releases an actual fix for freezing HDDs

Remember those issues Seagate was having? No, not those issues; everybody has those right now (except Apple and Google). I’m talking about the thousands upon thousands of drives that have been freezing up due to a firmware issue. Seagate released a “fix” a while ago that took fixed the problem by bricking the drive, which was, needless to say, poorly received.

They’ve now released a new fix, which should get things going again for those of you with faulty 1TB and 1.5TB drives. Anybody out there have the issue and want to report in on the fix’s efficacy?
