[hard drive] Wondering why

I had a HD failure a couple days ago and swapped it out with a spare and all is good now. Being curious, I took it apart and found the write head had burnt to the platter, almost like a spot weld. My question is what could have caused that?

friction.

Simply, you have a platter running at 5400 to 10,000 rpm. If the one of heads do not lift off as it should it will get VERY hot.
