Users of Seagates 7200.11 Baracuda ES.2 SATA and DiamondMax 22 hard drives are falling victim to a firmware bug as reported by Seagate, various forums, and blogs.

Some users of the Barracuda 7200.11, Barracuda ES.2 SATA, and DiamondMax 22 desktop hard drives are blocked from their data by a firmware bug that is causing lock-ups and/or failures. Users are finding that although data has not been erased from their drives – some data is being rendered inaccessible.

SEAGATE says there is no data loss, but obviously there may be issues for individual users learning how to access or recover the data.
