How To Repair A Hard Drive

Hard drive repair is a complex procedure that not only involves removing and replacing failed components, but it also involves properly diagnosing the failure. A hard drive can have multiple failures, and sometimes it can have these failures simultaneously.  For example, you may have a weak or failing set of heads that write corrupted data to the system area of the hard drive.  When that happens, even if you replace the heads perfectly, you will still be locked out of the data due to the firmware corruption.

In some instances a hard drive will appear to have crashed physically, but it can be a result of something firmware related.  When a hard drive powers up, it has to seek and find specific data on the platters that matches up with the information stored on the PCB (the logic board on the back of the hard drive).  If it cannot find this data, then the heads may repeatedly seek back and forth until the drive errors out and powers down.  So it may sound like a physical hard drive crash, but in reality, it is a firmware issue.

When we recover data from failed hard drives we have a flow of work that involves…

  • Diagnosing the type of problem that has occurred
  • Making any repairs that are necessary
  • Analyzing and backing up system area modules
  • Cloning or imaging the hard drive (making a sector-by-sector copy)
  • Working from the cloned copy to regenerate the file system and recover the lost data

Data recovery may seems simple at first glance, and if you have the knowledge and experience needed, it is not incredibly difficult.  However, it can be time consuming and it does require a fully equipped lab that allows the recovery work to be completed efficiently.

Hard drive recovery can be expensive, and for many people it seems like very easy work. However, there are very few qualified companies out there that can actually do it.  When you retain a company to recover your data from a failed hard drive or RAID array, you have to keep in mind you are utilizing equipment that would cost you thousands of dollars to obtain and you are using the years of experience technicians have gained while performing non-stop research and development on new data recovery techniques.

Secure Data Recovery

It’s only natural to have some concern that your personal and confidential data may be viewed by others during the data recovery process.  Here is how our process works and how we keep your data secured.

  • Only one technician works on any given recovery from start to finish
  • The way we see your data, is not so much in a visual context, but more the raw HEX values
  • We do not network any of our recovery servers, so there is no outside access to your data
  • We do not upload your data to any outside servers
  • We adhere to the same security protocols for all customers…home users, defense contractors, health care providers, etc.

Hard drive recovery and RAID data recovery can involve the exposure of a lot of sensitive data.  The privacy and protection of your data is something we do not take chances with.  Whether you are looking to get your personal family photos recovered or you are a major hospital with patient records, we recover data in a secure and safe environment that does everything humanly possible to keep your data protected.

What Our Customers Say…

Over 5,000 satisfied customers have entrusted us for their data recovery needs.

“I called half a dozen data recovery companies before I called ACS. We needed a recovery on a failed RAID 5 file server that had been partially submerged in water after super storm Sandy hit our shore. Our entire company was at a standstill without that data. I felt comfortable about working with ACS after discussing the dilemma we were facing, so we awarded them the job and I crossed my fingers that they could get our data recovered. It took a little longer than we had hoped, but with 5 water damaged hard drives, I could appreciate the enormity of the task. They came through for us perfectly. We were able to retrieve 100% of our data. Well worth the expense, and highly recommended.” – Alan Wilkerson
