Hard Drive Troubleshooting

Hard drives are complex, as you may already notice through the Hard Drives basics reviews. They have a circuit board and a number of precise mechanical moving parts. In terms of hard drive data recovery, the first thing that you must evaluate is whether it is a hardware problem that is stopping you from accessing your data. Common hardware problems include a faulty circuit board or problems with the actuator arm.

A faulty circuit board is characterize by a drive that does not ’spin up’, meaning that platters are not turning underneath the copper wire. A faulty actuator arm or more serious mechanical error is characterized by an abnormal clicking noise or a grinding noise. The best advice in determining whether you have a hardware problem is to listen to the sound of your hard drive. If you cannot hear the platters spinning (i.e. it is quiet when it is turned on) or you hear more serious noises then you should stop using the drive immediately and you will need to send your drive to a hardware data recovery service.

Note that the hardware data recovery can be expensive because technicians most likely will need to disassemble your hard drive to fix the problem. Hard drive data recovery is usually done in a ’clean room’ as hard drives are sealed to avoid errors caused by dust or other particles. Also hard drives are finely tuned machinery and it takes specialist equipment to read the platters from a physically damaged drive.

If you are sending your hard drive to a data recovery specialist then you should attempt to obtain an upfront estimate of fees (although you will rarely get one), ask that if you send your hard drive for quotation purposes will they send it back to you in the same condition if you choose not to use the service, and make sure you send it to a reputable company as you may only get one chance at hard drive data recovery.

In most cases, the hard drives do not die suddenly, but the performance degrades with time. Since the data recovery might be a complicated and expensive procedure, it is recommended to prevent the damaging results of the failure by taking prompt backups of the important data, while the drive is still accessible.
