Customer Samsung Hard Drive Data Recovery Emails & Article

Samsung NP3530ec-A0LDX with stock hard drive
My problem began two nights ago when I was programming the final 5% of code for a new product we are releasing. I left for about 10 minutes and when I got back, the C++ program crashed as I just moved the mouse. After the crash, the computer froze. I pressed CTRL+ALT+DEL but it didn’t work. So, my last resort was force shut down the laptop.  When I tried turning it back on, Windows wouldn’t turn on. I entered BIOS and I found there that there is no hard drive detected. I only saw a DVD drive and two Windows boot managers. After a few tries, the laptop turned back on but would not let me login to windows.

Samsung 160GB SATA 2 Hard Drive
I have a Samsung 160GB SATA 2 HDD installed and it works fine. But with many files save in it, it now only has 6GB of free space. I purchased a Samsung 500GB SATA 2 HDD and installed it in my ASUS A8n-SLi motherboard for added space. I found out that my motherboard can support up to four SATA 2 drives so I decided to try adding one. I opened the computer and I was able to see the 500GB drive that I added. I mapped it on My Computer->Manage->Disk Management to drive F and then I formatted it as NTFS. The problem is it only went far as 30% then it froze. I can hear the hard drive clicking whenever it gets to 30%. I rebooted the computer and now it won’t boot. I must have done something to the main drive that contained the operating system. I tried the hard disk in  a caddy to gain access to the data but did not work.

Regain Your Data Using Samsung Hard Disk Recovery

Samsung hard disks are used in many different systems as both internal and external hard drives. If you find that you are no longer able to access the data on your disk then you should call one of our Samsung hard disk recovery specialists who will be able to provide you with a number of things. Firstly, they will be able to diagnose exactly what is wrong with your drive over the phone using their extensive experience in recovering data from Samsung drives. They will explain how serious a problem it is that you have and will provide you with a brief overview of how your system can be recovered. In some cases you can safely recover your data at home using freely available software, but more often than not you will require the assistance of professionals so that we can utilise all of the software and tools that we have at our disposal. Therefore we can also provide you with a quote and estimated timescale for the recovery to be carried out.

There are many different models of Samsung hard disk, but some of those that we have successfully recovered data from are the HS040HB, HD300LD, HM080HC and the HD400LD. Samsung hard disks are generally very reliable, but even with the most reliable hard disk there are still faults that can occur that lead to the corruption of an operating system or the corruption of the data on the drive.

Corruption of the operating system is one of the more common problems that are seen. Errors are introduced into the operating system software that can lead to your computer not booting up at all due to the volume not being mountable and it can also lead to your data becoming damaged or corrupted, especially if you do not utilise a partitioned hard drive. Many of these cases can be rectified relatively easily by repairing the operating system, but in order to ensure that the data is kept intact it is usually advisable to have a back-up of the data files made before attempting to repair the operating system.

It is not always the system that is at fault. Sometimes user error causes your files to become unavailable. If you make modifications to the way the operating system accesses the data files you may inadvertently change the access rights so that data becomes inaccessible. It is also possible to accidentally delete files that you still require. If either of these occurs they are relatively straightforward to sort out by resetting permissions or by redefining the pointer to the file that has been deleted.

Physical damage to the drive can cause a lot more complex issues when it comes to data recovery. This is because a firmware failure or an electrical surge through the drive can not only cause basic access problems, it can also cause the data on the drive to become corrupted as well. Viruses can also cause significant amounts of corruption to files that increase the complexity of recovering data intact.
