Four Risks related to Disassembling the Hard Drive for Repair

Hard drives are quite sensitive to handle and can be easily damaged. Physical damage to a hard drive can be indicated by strange noises, a slow PC or no moment in the drive. 

You might be curious to analyze the problem and want to disassemble the hard drive. Little you might know, what worse could be done by disassembling the hard drive without any expert advice. The data saved in the hard drive might also get damaged and inaccessible forever. 

So, we will share the top four risks associated with disassembling the hard drive and why you shouldn’t try to repair the hard drive at your own risk. 

1. The disk is prone to dust

The hard disk drive is highly sensitive to dust particles. When you open the sensitive disk platter in a non-cleanroom, many dust particles will stick to the magnetic platter made of aluminum or a thin layer of glass. Thereafter, the disk will get severely damaged, and your data might become irrecoverable

2. Sensitive to Moisture

As a sensitive hard drive part, the disk platter is also sensitive to moisture. Once accumulated on the platter, extreme moisture or humidity will give irreparable damage, making the data recovery more difficult to succeed. 

3. Don’t repair if you have no knowledge

Hard disk drives contain components that are needed to understand before anyone performs data recovery. Years of knowledge and experience can only let you achieve the results. 

If you are an amateur, it would be best to leave the repair work to professionals. Anything that goes wrong during the repair can get into big trouble, compromising your entire data. 

4. Advanced tools required

When you lack the specialized tools needed for the damaged hard drive recovery, you will not succeed. Data recovery specialists have a set of tools that are dedicated to every component repair. Also, using a normal screwdriver and opening the hard drive without any knowledge may give scratches to the disk platter damaging it seriously. 


The outcome concludes that it would be inadvisable for you to disassemble the sensitive hard drive and start repairing it for the sake of data recovery. It will do more harm than good, leaving your damaged hard drive irreparable forever. Professionals have the skills, years of experience, and dedicated tools required to repair a damaged hard drive expertly. Also, a damaged disk platter should only be opened in a clean room that has specialized room conditions suitable to open the hard drive and repair it without damaging the platter
