Silly question ? More than 1 reading head per HDD plate
Feb 28, 2009

Hi,

One of my external HDD died... so, I took a screwdriver and open it just for the fun.

Then I was wondering, there's one articulated arm to read the data from the plates, why can't we have more than 1 per plate ? Can't this accelerate the perf ?

Thanks.
