Hard Drive Repair
Repairing hard drives is a specialty. It’s a skill that can’t really be taught, or learned in a short period of time. It takes practice, and most of all it takes knowledge. Hard drive repair is often thought of as normal computer repair work, like something your local computer shop would be able to do. Nothing could be further from the truth. Hard drives are some of the most complex devices we use in today’s society.
Having a clean room or the right tools is really only a small part of the overall equation when it comes to hard drive repair. You also need to have the knowledge to know that you are fixing the correct components, and you have to know how to do it without further damaging the drive.
When it comes to hard drive data recovery, the first step is proper diagnosis. It cannot be stressed enough how critical this first step is. It’s not uncommon for a hard disk to exhibit symptoms of a physical problem, but in reality it is suffering from corruption within some of the firmware modules.
We don’t charge anything to evaluate any type of storage device. So you are more than welcome to create a new data recovery case and submit your media to us for evaluation. This way you can have a professional diagnosis completed, and you can then decide if you want to proceed with the recovery attempt or not.
Once a hard drive is diagnosed, then the repair methods can be initiated. The steps included may involve our company ordering a compatible parts drive. Even though we have thousands of hard drives in stock that we use for parts, it is almost impossible to keep every type of hard drive in existence.
Hard Drive Recovery Process
After a technician secures the necessary parts drive, we will then go through a process of physically repairing the hard drive. This usually does not result in the disk operating at pre-failure levels…usually there will be at least some degradation in performance. It is merely an effort to get the drive functional enough so it can be imaged.
You can watch us repair and pull data from an actual customer’s hard drive in the video below…
The imaging process serves two primary purposes. It allows us to ease the stress on the drive so that we don’t force it to work too hard. A hardware imager controls firmware parameters, and we can eliminate much of the function that pushes the drive too hard, which extends the life with the replacement heads installed. It also creates a sector-by-sector clone of your hard drive, onto a perfectly good hard drive. From there we pull the data from the cloned copy. This not only protects your original source data, but it also keeps us from having to recover data from a hard drive that might be on the brink of failing again. Our imaging stations put very little load on the damaged disk, so that we are able to get as much data as possible.
After the drive is imaged, we will then rebuild the file structure and the data can be recovered and transferred to the media of your choice.
