Hard Drive Data Recovery
Hard drives, or hard disk drives, are one of the most popular storage solutions used by people around the world. Hard drives are popular because of their high capacity and affordable price, and they are used in all types of electronics, including laptops, desktops, servers, external memory, and consoles. But even the most reliable hard drive is prone to failure.
The storage disk inside each hard drive needs to spin quickly for the device to read and write data. The durability of your drive and the reliability of its brand may determine how long the device will last, but every hard drive can fail, putting your data at risk. Drive Data Recovery is an industry leader in hard drive data recovery. Our expert technicians are highly trained and use the most up to date technology and knowledge during every step of the data recovery process.

Causes of Hard Drive Data Loss & Failure
Identifying the cause of your data loss is the first step our experts take during the free diagnosis of your hard drive. Once we have identified the cause, we can select the best method to recover your data. You will receive a diagnostic report that details the cause and provides an up-front quote on the cost to recover your data and the time required for the recovery process.
While data loss can occur because of a range of issues or accidents, the three fundamental types of damage that cause data loss are logical drive failure, electrical drive failure, and mechanical drive failure.
Logical drive failure, or corruptions to your storage data, can happen to your hard drive if it is not handled properly. This damage can occur if you improperly turn off or unplug your device while it is running.
Electrical drive failure can cause damage and data loss to any electronic device, but hard drives are especially vulnerable. Several drives have built-in protection from electrical surges, but faulty cables, chargers, and even electrical strikes can cause your device to fail.
Mechanical drive failure, or physical damage, can cause data loss. The moving parts inside of a hard drive are more prone to failure because of a drop or spill, and routine disk degradation can also cause your device to fail over time.
What to Do if Your Hard Drive Fails
If your device breaks or you realize your data is missing, Drive Data Recovery is here to help. If you cannot access data on your device, follow these steps immediately to improve your chances of fully recovering your data:
- Hold down the power button of the device containing your hard drive to safely power it down or properly eject your external drive.
- Remove all cables connected to your device and remove the drive, if possible.
- Do not attempt to restore device power or use free data recovery software found on the web. This software often causes greater damage to the device and can make recovery impossible.
