Causes of HGST Data Loss & Failure

Identifying the cause of your HGST 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 occur when your storage drive is improperly handled. This damage can be caused by removing your device without properly ejecting it or unplugging it while it is still operating.

Electrical drive failure can cause data loss with even the highest quality storage devices. Power surges caused by faulty hardware, cables, outlets, and events outside of your control, such as lightning strikes, can cause electrical damage to your device.

Mechanical drive failure, or physical damage, is a threat to any hardware. Every hard drive contains moving parts, making them prone to failure. However, any storage media can sustain damage that results in data loss.

What to Do if Your HGST 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:

  1. Safely power off the devices containing your HGST drive by holding down the power button or safely disconnect it.
  2. Remove all cables connected to your device and remove the data drive, if possible.
  3. 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.
  4. Contact a specialist at Drive Data Recovery to start your free consultation.
