Failures Commonly Experienced by PC Hard Drives:
When a PC hard drive failure occurs it can fail for a variety of reasons, it is vital that the fault is diagnosed correctly by a PC professional data recovery specialist in order that the data on the PC drive can be recovered. There are a number of signs that your PC hard disk drive may be close to experiencing failure, including a blue crash screen, clicking or grinding noises and a lower level of performance or hard drive is not getting recognised when PC boots up. If any of these symptoms are experienced, the best course of action is to turn off the PC and contact a professional data recovery service. By turning off a computer immediately upon experiencing warning signs, you’ll increase your chances that your data can be completely recovered. PC Hard Drive’s can fail for a variety of reasons, below is the most common PC drive failure types we receive in for data recovery:
PC Hard Drive Mechanical Failure:
This type of failure is normally the result of the PC hard disk making beeping, buzzing or clicking noises. Beeping and buzzing noise is normally an indication that the motor has failed on the hard disk. A clicking noise is normally an indication that the read/write heads have failed. This failure is normally the result of the PC hard drive getting a knock or a fall. We have a high success rate with recovering data from clicking PC HDD’s.
PC Hard Drive Electronic Failure:
This type of failure is normally the result of a power surge or power spike (a lot of cases involve connecting the wrong power supply to the laptop hard drive). We have a high success rate with recovering data from dead PC HDD’s.
PC Firmware Failures:
Firmware is a software program that is responsible for the communication between the entire computer system and the hard disk drive. Firmware codes are typically located on disk platters, and if the platter becomes damaged or corrupted, the PC hard disk drive will experience a failure. This type of failure occurs even if the other mechanical and electrical components of the hard drive are in perfect working order. We have a high success rate with recovering data from corrupted firmware PC HDD’s.
PC Hard Drive is Operating Very Slowly or Freezing:
This type of failure means the PC hard drive is degrading. In most circumstances it means the sectors on the disk are getting corrupt and unreadable and unwritable. It can also mean that bad sectors on the hard drive are not getting allocated by the hard drive correctly. With this type of failure a client can normally not copy data from the drive or files and folders keeps appearing and then disappearing from view. We have a high success rate with recovering data from corrupted & bad sector PC HDD’s.
