Mechanical Failure of hard disk means there’s damage on the internal components which makes the data stored on the hard disk inaccessible!

Hard disk Mechanical Failure requires the hard disk to be opened in a clean room environment and change for donor components like donor heads, donor PCB, etc.

Unlike electrical faults with particular drives, it’s very difficult to define exact mechanical failure symptoms for hard disk drives. Hard disk drives with mechanical failure have often symptoms like following:

* When powered on, the hard drive will immediately begin to make a regular ticking or clicking sound
* high pitched noise from the disk
* disk is noisier than usual
* clicking / clanking sound from the disk
* drive appears dead
* completely quiet due to ” motor freeze”
* drive is not recognized

Head crash is one of the most common mechanical failures of hard disk.
Head Crash Recovery Possibilities: Head crashes vary in severity. The data on the drive in this photo is completely unrecoverable due to the amount of damage that has been caused by the head crash. However, some head crashes are mild and most of the data can be recovered.
