Desktop Hard Drive Recovery
Hard Drive Data Recovery is possible on nearly every type of Computer System. Our Data Recovery lab technicians and engineers are a highly skilled team trained and experienced in the latest state-of-the-art data recovery techniques with years of successful hard drive recovery experience behind them on almost every type of file system and computer system.
We can recover data from any type of drives, whether it’s internal or external, 2.5 inch 0r 3.5 inch, PATA os SSD or SSD’s, with any type of crash – including the classic “Logical” crashes where the data was deleted or lost from a working drive, to the much severe “Physical” crashes where the HDD has completely stopped functioning and your data has been stuck within.
Data recovery involves replacing failed components such as read/write head assemblies, logic control components and drive motors in a clean room environment. In most cases, the recovery process involves restructuring the data by examining the low-level data sectors and determining what fixes to file system structures are needed to gain access to the logical data.
Using highly sophisticated techniques and proprietary equipment and software, our engineers are able to fix and recover data from these raw images of all operating systems.
We use only non-destructive hard drive data recovery processes that use drive sectors cloning, this means we pull data from your drive on a sector by sector basis, and we work directly on the clone. This will ensure your drive is not damaged further and that a second image of the original structure can be acquired if needed.
Generally, hard drives fail or are inaccessible due to one of two common reasons:
Logic Crash: Far more common than physical damage is logical corruption or damage to a file system. Logic damage is primarily caused by human error, which includes accidental deletion of files, accidentally formatting a hard drive, and even power outages can cause file system structures to become damaged. Logical crashes can cause a variety of problems including total system crashes and actual loss of data.
- Accidentally deleted files or folders
- Accidentally formatted hard drive
- Re-installed Operating System
- Overwritten files
- Virus attack
- Corrupted partitions or MBR
- Data lost/corrupted by power failure
Physical Crash: When a hard drive is making ticking or scratching noises due to old or worn out parts it can lose the data contained within. The read / write heads in the hard drive can fail; failed motors are common; or the platters on which the data is stored can become damaged. Physical damage can also be due to mishandling of the drive or circuit failure of the PCB board which is attached to the hard drive. Physical damage to the disks itself always causes at least some data loss. And, in many cases with physically damaged hard drives, the logic structure of the file system may also get damaged. Any damage of this sort constitutes a physical crash of a hard drive.
- Hard Disk not getting detected by the computer
- Hard Disk creating clicking or scratching sound
- “Disk Boot Failure”, Blue Screen or any other error message
- Zero bytes capacity
- Displaying wrong capacity
- Bad sectors
- Head and Media problems
- Firmware problems
- Burnt PCB
- Fire or water affected drives
- Locked with hardware based password (ATA password)
