by DigitalBulls Inc Technical Support

The era of computers promises the users to keep their data safe almost immortal till the time comes when safety of your important and confidential data is at stake. Owing to the catastrophic factors, your hard drive fails to produce the data stored inside and leave you in dismay. The onus of how to retrieve data from hard drive that is malfunctioning can be unburdened by-

Ø     Consulting the experts- An amateur might consider the task to be daunting and expensive. Industry insider says that the professional technicians can smell and detect the problem causing the failure. They do the diagnosis and prepare a report that you can access online with the cost estimation of recovering data. This being sent to the user, it will be decided whether to recover the data or send the drive back.

It might interest you to know that mechanical failures are commonly caused because of the age of the drive or a defect in the same. External factors are rare to be found guilty of drive failure.   

Ø  Performing surgery- After the diagnosis of problem and the customer’s approval for action, lab technicians open up the drive to see what exactly the problem is. After sorting the problem, the first step is to source the parts that need to be replaced. Usually the parts to be replaced are handy, at time you may have to wait to get the parts from market. After receiving the parts, the repair job begins. Components such as adapters, read/write heads etc are replaced in a clean proximity. It ensures that dust and other minute unwanted objects’ entry is prohibited inside the open drive.

Usually the mechanical parts fail but the problem can be with electronics too. After getting the drive back into operation next step taken is to image the drive. When done correctly this tactic quickly retrieves large chunks of data.  Modern drives are difficult to work on as they contain multiple chips.

Ø  Sending the drive back- The success ratio of sending back home drives are 98% and high.  Most of the drives look like the same what they were before failure. Files which are sent back may not have the old name what you assigned to them, they might not be organized but at least they will be there.  After completing the recovery process, the data is uploaded to local server. It is especially considered to avoid server connected to internet for the security concerns.

One cannot rely on protecting the data on his own by moving files. It is better to hire cloud services that are affordable and safeguard your data from catastrophic events such as fire, water, theft etc.
