Common Hard Drive Failures Explained:

There are a variety of reasons as to why a computer’s hard drive may stop working. From the million to one chance knock against the machine as you or a work colleague walk by, through to spilling liquid on it or simply because of wear and tear. More often than not though the reasons for a hard drive failure is that of hardware within the device or software – known as firmware – controlling it. Whatever the reason for the sudden malfunction of your hard drive, we here at staines data recovery, can help you recover your data and may also be able to help you repair your drive

Hard Drive Spindle & Platter Malfunction:

Imagine your hard drive is your favourite compact disc and it becomes damaged because something is scratched across the surface; well this is the same principle as happens to a hard drive when the head, spindle or platters become detached from their axis. This can happen for a number of reasons but generally it is because of old age (a machine that has perhaps been left on for long periods of time without use) or because the machine has received some kind of physical knock. When any of these things occur the components that together make up the hard drive can cease to function in unison causing the hard drive to fail

Unwarranted File Deletion And/Or Inadvertent HDD Formatting:

Unfortunately one of the most common reasons we are approached to help recover data from hard drives and other storage devices is because of accidental deletion or formatting. It is something that can happen to any of us but in a lot of instances the information can become permanently irretrievable if you try and reformat the drive after you have deleted by mistake. If you have inadvertently deleted data or formatted your hard drive we recommend immediately switching off and contacting us here at staines data recovery and we will be able to give you help and advice on how to secure the drive until we can recover the data safely for you

Hard Drive Board Crash:

If you have ever seen a hard drive up close you will have noticed the small printed circuit board attached to it. On this board is all the information the hard drive needs to function. It is known as firmware and is a small program that sends commands to the motherboard and deciphers them as they return so that the hard drive can function in the correct manner. The board also allows for the information that is being sent through the ribbon cable that attaches the drive to the motherboard to be interpreted. Generally a faulty board on a hard drive means that the drive itself may work but cannot do so because no information or commands are being received or sent but we here at staines data recovery can help you recover the data at the very least

Consequences of Hard Drive Firmware Expiration:

Firmware is a small but important program that allows your hard drive to converse and understand instructions received by your computer’s motherboard. In the same way that modern smartphones use apps so the hard drive uses firmware to understand the commands being sent to it by the user via the motherboard. However there are occasions when the firmware becomes obsolete or in need of an upgrade perhaps because a motherboard manufacturer has changed something on the layout before production. To this end a hard drive may not function correctly if the firmware is out of date and if this is the case there is a possibility that an upgrade may be available from the Internet but if not we will certainly be able to help you recover your data using our own sophisticated firmware recovery tools

Hard Drive And Operating System Conflicts:

There are occasions when your hard drive and your operating system just will not work together. These are known as conflicts and can be caused by a whole host of factors. Perhaps you have installed an updated version of your operating system or have used to it defrag your hard drive? Maybe you have used a disk utility that came with your operating system and it has caused a problem? There are many reasons why operating systems – be they Windows-based or OS – may fail to recognize or access a hard drive and we at staines data recovery can help you ascertain what that reason is and help you recover your data from your hard drive before it becomes permanently inaccessible.
