Commonly people walk into our company and ask; what really caused my hard disk to stop working right or how come I cannot view any of my files on my computer?
All these do not come new any longer whenever a customer brings in their storage devices for lost data recovery service. The appropriate answer which best fits the questions asked is usually given which leaves them happy and rest assured that their data can be retrieved safely in most cases.
The most common causes of data loss from hard drives or the causes of hard drive malfunction are can be in the following categories:
Firmware can be described as the controlling software that is built into the hard disk and stored on the disk platters of the drive. Like most software, firmware may be corrupt or damaged over time.
Mechanical failures occur when physical components of the drive begin to wear and malfunction. Common examples of mechanical failures are:
Read/Write Head damage
Physical burn or damaged components on the Printed Circuit Board (PCB) as a result of Electrical surge.
The ones that fall into the category of OTHERS include;
Human Errors: deleted files, accidental format etc
Operating System failure (OS)
What to do when you experience any of these hard drive failure problems:
It is important that if you find out any of these irregularities, UNPLUG the system and Remove the drive, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REBOOT FROM THIS DRIVE if it is the system’s boot disk. We recommend that the drive be installed and used as an external USB to reduce the disk utilization during the boot up for this process.
