If you find any potential problem with your hard disk, A checklist of do's and dont's is mentioned below

Hard disk crashed - Few things you should do

  • Stop using the hard disk/drive that shows signs of failure
  • Check the system for malware, viruses etc.
  • Do check cables connecting the Hard disk drive
  • Seek professional help for hard disk recovery
  • Do not out drive into freezer( the damage would be irreversible)

Hard disk crashed - Few things you should never do

  • Do not open the Hard disk, you could temper it and data will be unrecoverable

Knowledge Base

Hard disk failure is most common cause of data loss. Over the years, we at Stellar Data Recovery India have noticed that around 70% of data recovery jobs which we receive are related to hard disks only. This is common with domestic and corporate users.

There could be many possible reasons for disk failure; like computer systems are being used more frequently and data is stored continuously. Other factors such as increase in data density and number of platters may also be contributing factors for hard disk failures.

It is documented that 60% of the Hard disk failure occurs because of mechanical failure and the rest 40% occurs through misuse.

Physical Hard Disk failure: - As the name suggests any kind of physical damage to the hard disk like dropping, burning of hard drive can make device nonfunctional. A physical case may appear if:

  • Crashed Hard disk Computer not detecting the Hard disk
  • Drive not spinning (no power)
  • An excessively hot drive
  • An abnormal ticking noise whilst the drive is reading data
  • A loud clicking or grinding noise

A physically damaged hard disk failure can be easily noticed by looking into a hard drive. In case of a physically damaged hard disk, you may not recover data with the help of any data unauthorized recovery software. Also don't try to open the hard disk by yourself, it may damage your drive further, and you may lose your data permanently.

In case none of the above problems are shown by your Hard Disk, it could be a case of logical failure.

Logical Hard disk Failure: - The damage/ failure occurs in the hard drives file structure or software or malware infections, human error or corrupted files or the hard drive does not boot up.  A logical hard disk failure may appear if:

  • Logical failure Computer Bios see hard disk drive but the data is not accessible
  • Defective media/ bad platter
  • Data corruption from other file source
  • Human errors for E.g. modification in the registry files of the system, alteration in files' attributes of the system and many more can lead to logical damage of the Hard disk drive.

Logical Hard disk failure does not require opening the Hard disk drive; one can use Hard disk recovery software's to get the data. But it is important to analyze the type of logical failure before one attempts to recover data, hence experts' advice is essential and seek experienced hard disk recovery services.

You can contact us or call us at 1800 -102-3232 to discuss your logical disk failure case. Using any untrusted software can harm your hard disk further, or it could also lock your data, which might be very difficult to recover.

If you think your hard disk hasn't encountered a physical or logical failure, then the reason could be electronic/mechanical hard disk failure.

Electronic/Mechanical hard disk failure: - Electronic/Mechanical failure is related to components of the Hard drive goes faulty, and the drive will not be accessed to store data.

An electronic/mechanical hard disk failure may appear if

  • Hard disk head or heads crash
  • Hard disk motor failure
  • Damage of magnetic platters
  • PCB damage

Out of the errors mentioned Electronic/Mechanical hard disk failure is complicated and often encompasses logical, electronic or firmware failure. Hence, it takes lot of effort and time, for hard disk data recovery process, and such cases are treated in Clean Rooms only by Data recovery experts.
