Hard Drive Repair Technique

Using the Proper Hard Drive Repair Technique - Essential for an Efficient Data Recovery Process

When the hard drive of your computer or mobile phone crashes, you may feel like stricken by a hurricane, but a data recovery company can make the situation less desperate, by providing you a multitude of hard drive repair solutions.

The malfunction of a hard disk can be either physical, or logical. The former is easier to deal with. For example, when the defection is due to a power failure, you must restart the computer and see if all the functions are back to normal as soon as the power is restored. If the problem persists, maybe the cords or the plugs are to blame. Scratches and more or less intense impacts are also among the causes of a hard drive physical damage.

Hard Disk Drives & Operating Systems

Sometimes, the cause of the defection is the operating system, case in which you should review the menu and try a defragmentation. No matter the situation, you should not start the hard drive repair procedures on your own, because you might totally compromise your chances of retrieving the lost data. You should, therefore, leave the responsibility to the data recovery specialists, who, upon hearing your side of the story, will either ask you to take the hard drive to their workshop or will guide you over the phone.

If a physical intervention is required, the data recovery technician evaluates the broken hard drive by examining it in detail at the location of the company. If the loss did not have a physical cause, recovery over the phone may be attempted. The technician will either tell you everything you need to do or will ask you to download software that grants him access to your computer.

When the necessary hard drive repair follows a serious logical damage, the procedure is a bit more complex. It is known under the name of data carving and it is extremely laborious, because every file needs to be reconstructed from tiny fragments. This process takes longer than the repair necessary in case of physically damaged hard drives, and the lost information is only partially recovered.

Hard Drive Repair & The Costs

The costs of the hard drive repairs may vary from one situation to another, depending on the severity of the malfunction and on the data recovery company's policy, but, with a bit research you should be able to find a service provider that is both efficient and affordable, for which a hard drive repair is like having the morning coffee.

What Our Customers Say About Us

I have recently used R3D to retrieve data from an external hard drive.

I called Andy at 11pm on a Saturday after my hard drive failed, he immediately ran through the symptoms and calmed my fears that all data was lost, but was honest that data recoveries are not always successful.

I required the data immediately as it was for a deadline the following Friday, the issue was I was based in London and the lab based in Sheffield.

After searching all data companies in and around London none would answer my call on a Saturday. In fact no one else would answer my call or say they could look at my case on the Sunday.

I took the drive myself to R3D and was very impressed with their facilities. Andy also explained the whole process and what they were doing at each stage.

Unfortunately the hard drive had a physical failure and needed to be rebuilt to have any chance of recovering the information.

After starting the rebuild at 4pm on the Sunday, Andy advised it would take him and his team until the morning to know if any information was recoverable - fantastic I thought. Andy and Mark got to work on my drive as soon as I left and by 10pm on Sunday they had retrieved almost the entirety of the information of my hard drive.

I cannot reccomend R3D highly enough, they are clearly experts in their field and have a passion for what they do. Through the whole process Andy kept me informed of progress and explained everything they were doing.

If you have a crisis or any data recovery needs these are the guys you need!
