Data Recovery Process - 4 Simple Steps

Following are the symptoms of failed hard disk:
- Hard disk is undetectable or not recognized by the system.
- The system fails to boot or hangs in the middle of booting process.
- System BIOS is unable to detect the hard drive.
- Hard drive isn't spinning.
It’s best to contact a professional data recovery service provider in case of a crashed hard disk. Using hit-and-trial methods to recover data from a crashed hard drive might result in permanent data loss.
Physical Hard Disk failure - As the name suggests any kind of damage to the hard disk can make it non-functional. Given below are the symptoms of a physically failed or failing HDD:
- Computer not detecting the hard disk
- Drive not spinning (no power)
- An abnormal ticking noise whilst the drive is reading data
- A loud clicking or grinding noise
You must not try to recover data on your own in case the drive is physically crashed. It needs expertise and specialized resources in a laboratory to recover data from a physically crashed disk.
Logical Hard Disk Failure - A drive is said to have logical failure if there are no physical deformities in the storage media. Symptoms of HDD logical failure are:
- Computer BIOS sees a hard disk drive but the data is not accessible.
- Data couldn't be accessed.
- Files are missing.
Some common reasons for hard disk failure are:
- Manufacturing defects and mechanical failures
- Overuse of HDD
- Virus attack
- Bad sectors
- Adverse environmental conditions—dust, heat, moisture
- Jerks and falls
Given below are some of the symptoms of a failing hard drive:
- Clicking sound or unusual noise produced by HDD.
- Locking up during the boot process - hard disk problems are indicated if this happens frequently.
- The computer often freezes and needs forced restart.
- The system shows sluggish performance. You can't speed up computer performance even by applying optimization tricks.
- Increase in the number of bad sectors noted when running "chkdsk" command.
- Hard disk getting overheated.
- If you observe these symptoms, you must stop using the drive to prevent further damage and contact a data recovery expert.
It’s recommended to replace the HDD if it has a lot of bad sectors as it may lead to drive failure. You can run CHKDSK command from the command prompt which reallocates bad sectors so that the data that you store the next time isn’t stored on those bad sectors. Running CHKDSK might result in permanent data loss in some situations.
Hard disks are fragile. Jerks and falls may cause damage to hard drive components such as platters, read/write arm, spindle, etc. To recover data from a damaged hard drive, you need to contact a data recovery expert.
Data recovery cost varies. It depends on various factors, such as the complexity of the situation, the capacity of the hard drive, etc. However, in case of physical damage to the hard drive, the procedure is more complex. Read more about the hard drive data recovery cost.
Tampering the hard drive or any amateur attempt of data recovery could be the reason of permanent data loss or make the hard drive recovery complex. Read more about what makes hard drive data recovery complex.
