Hard Disk Recovery

Physical failures are in the form of electronic failure or mechanical failure. If the drive has had an electronics failure a repair to the drive can normally be performed although a part may be needed in order to do this.

If a hard disk drive has failed electronically and it can be repaired it usually results in a full recovery being made as normally the mechanics of the drive are not harmed.

If the hard disk drive has had a mechanical failure this could be down to the read/write head failing or the motor seizing. A common cause for a hard disk drives mechanically failing is the drive being dropped/knocked. When the read/write head fails it will result in the hard disk drive making a clicking noise. If the hard disk drive has a seized motor this will result in the platters not being able to spin and can result in an audible beep being heard from the hard drive.

Potential Causes Of Hard Drive Recovery

One of the main culprits of hard drive failure is hard drive degradation. Hard drive degradation happens generally over a longer period of time and is more apparent either the older a hard disk gets, the harder it has had to work during it lifespan or equally the internal Pc operating temperature. Hard drive failure due to overheating is common especially in the summer months so it is best to ensure the computer or laptop is regularly maintained and is kept free from dust which clogs all the cooling components.

With laptops ensure you do not cover the ventilation holes or fan housing which is very easy t do if the laptop is resting on a soft surface.

Lack of proper disk maintenance can also lead to the need for hard drive recovery and sometimes premature disk failure so ensure you defragment your hard drive on a regular basis to avoid overworking the disk heads.

Featured Hard Drive Recovery Companies


With hard disks finding there way into more and more devices, hard drive failure isn't only restricted to computers, Pc's and laptops anymore, more and more of our mobile devices are taking advantage of the miniaturised harddrives in phones and MP4 players too and increasing numbers of people are using external hard drives for data backup and also mobile USB hard disk storage devices.

If you suffer from a drive failure, your disk won't boot or has simply crashed the key is not to panic but do call a data recovery professional and don't attempt to repair a dead drive yourself, you could end up with no data at all.

If a hard disk drive has physically failed then a hard drive repair may be required, and it is recommended that you do not keep trying to access your hard drive as this can cause further damage to your hard disk drive and can result in your data being unrecoverable.
