How do I know that my hard drive has failed?

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.
How to recover data from crashed hard disk?

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.

How to verify the type of hard drive failure?

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.
What are the reasons for my system's hard drive failure?

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
What are the symptoms of a failing HDD?

  • 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.
My hard drive has bad sectors, how to fix it?

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.

My external hard disk fell down. Now, I am not able to access it. How can I recover my data?

Contacted Stellar Team for Data Recovery, they communicated well throughout the process, Data was recovered successfully. Communicating locally through mobile is an easy task, As I am out of the country, they had this chain of email style, and without a phone call, they solved the issue through email communication. They even offered pickup and delivery service from my local friend in India. Never come through such a thorough process with any customer service in recent times. Kudos to the team.
