Hard drive data recovery is the process of restoring lost files from laptops, desktops, servers, or any other computer system that relies on hard disk drives (HDDs) for data storage. Data Recovery BD is a world leader in hard drive recovery, and with multiple full-service laboratories, we offer the best set of options for safe, affordable hard drive recovery.
Some of the common data loss scenarios for hard drives include:
Lab worker examining hard drive
Physical problems due to a drop or bumped drive
Disk read/write head failure
Power surge electronic damage
Failed PCB (printed circuit board), which can sometimes cause a clicking noise
Corrupt MBR (Master Boot Record)
Corrupt partition table
Damaged interface, such as USB or SATA connector
Failed fuse, capacitor or resistor
Bad motor controller
Failed cache memory
Failed voltage regulator
Many hard drives sustain multiple issues while failing, and no two instances of data loss are exactly the same. That’s why engineering expertise plays such an enormous role in hard drive data recovery.
Data Recovery BD treats every case individually using an optimized process, analyzing a variety of factors including hard drive model, age, firmware revision, and failure scenario to create an appropriate recovery plan.
HARD DRIVE FAILURE TYPES
Modern hard drives are a technological marvel, containing numerous sensitive components susceptible to physical, electrical, mechanical, and logical failures.
Common problems include bad sectors, read/write head crashes or stiction, PCB failure, and drive motor and bearings issues. All these scenarios cause the hard drive to cease normal operations and require hands-on hard drive repair inside a specialized cleanroom environment.
IF YOU HAVE A FAILED HARD DRIVE, TAKE OUR ADVICE AND FOLLOW THE STEPS DETAILED BELOW TO MINIMIZE YOUR DATA LOSS:
Turn off your desktop immediately – continued operation can cause greater damage
Do not turn your computer off and on again hoping it will fix itself
Do not install or re-install any software or hardware
Do not take it apart, open or attempt to clean a damaged drive
Do not use DIY recovery software to repair a damaged drive, especially if it’s making noises
Do not try to turn on, clean or dry a wet or muddy drive, call for help
Do not try to operate a visibly damaged hard drive. Allow the experts to help you out.
