you are having with your drive. Here are a couple of recent cases:

Physical Data Recovery
When a hard drive suffers a head
crash, electronics damage, or spindle motor problem, these are typically
classified as physical failures. The most common symptom of a physical
failure with the read-write
heads is the dreaded "Click
Physical failures are some of the most complex problems associated with
hard drives, and will nearly double the cost of the recovery when compared
to a logical
failure. In order for your data to be recovered successfully, it's
important that we are able to get your hard drive functional so that we
can generate an image or cloned copy of it. With physical failures, this
could mean we need to swap out the head
assembly. With electronics failures, we will need to repair the components
on the logic board, or we will need to transfer vital components to a
new working board. In the event a spindle motor has failed, we will need
to move the platters
from your drive over to the case of another drive, all while maintaining
exact alignment between the platters. With only microns of tolerance,
the process is not easy, even for experienced data recovery technicians.
Many customers express that they don't want their drive repaired, they
just want the data. However, some level of repair is necessary so that
we can access the data. We don't ever recommend you use the drive again,
it is only a temporary repair that is needed so that we can generate a
cloned copy of your drive. We then perform a logical
recovery from the cloned copy we created.
Data recovery on physically failed hard drives, typically requires a
Class-100 or better clean room. Simply stated, a Class100 Clean Room maintains
exceptional air purity, and contains less than 100 airborne particles
larger than 0.5 microns in each cubic foot of air. This is vital in protecting
sensitive internal components of hard drives, especially since the read/write
head floats just a few microns above the platters which are spinning at
7200RPM. The smallest speck of dust can be like a car slamming head on
into a tree. Anytime a hard drive is having an invasive procedure performed
on it, a Class100 clean room or better is needed to prevent further damage
or data loss.
If your drive has suffered a mechanical failure, chances are you are
going to hear unusual sounds coming from the drive. These may be clicks,
beeps, even "musical" notes may be heard. Here are some examples
of the sounds you may hear: Head

power to the drive. If the data is important call us at 1-800-717-8974.
