Logical Data Recovery Hard Drive Failures

When you face logical hard drive damage, it’s most likely going to render your data inaccessible. Estimation states that 65% of hard disk cases are of logical damage have a higher expectancy of data recovery than physical damage cases.

The logical failure of hard disks is a result of file system corruption. Some of the common logical damage causes are as follows:

  1. Virus attack
  2. Accidental deletion of data
  3. File corruption
  4. Operating System crash
  5. Electro-static charge
  6. Overwritten data

Logical failure of your hard drive may show you no files but the files don’t vanish permanently instead kept intact by the operating system that needs a specialized approach to recover the data files.

Two main errors occur in logical hard drive failure

1 . Human error: No human is perfect and could make mistakes like data format, deleting data of partition, or overwriting files by using data recovery software that risks permanent data loss.

2. Software error: Sometimes recovery software overwrites data on the wrong part of the disk leading to logical failure, only an expert can resolve this tangled situation.

Logical vs. physical damage

Failures: A logical damage case of your failed hard drive is less severe than a physical failure. Logical cases account for operating system failure, data format, deletion of partition, and overwritten data, etc.

In case of physical damage a hard disk that results due to physical shocks, electrical shocks, clicking-grinding noises, bad head or bad sectors formation on disks, improper installation, heat damage, etc.
