If You Care About Your Lost Data, Leave the Data Recovery to the Experts

Your hard drive crashed and your data is gone. Your first instinct is to try everything you can to get your data back, from software applications to unconventional home remedies. And if the data is not that important and you want to play “doctor” with your hard drive, this is a good opportunity to try.

On the other hand, if you really care about the information on that crashed drive, getting it to an expert is the first and only step that guarantees a high success rate in recovering your data.

As data recovery specialists, we have seen it all – from over-damaged platters due recovery attempts using utility software, to defrosted hard drives that were placed in the freezer in an attempt to recover the data from clicking heads. Permanent data loss is likely to occur if you don’t understand how fragile the mechanism inside a hard drive is and treat it as such.

Here are a few tips:

  • Any clicking or grinding noise means that your hard drive is likely to have physical damage. Do not attempt to retrieve the data using utility software, as the continued operation of the hard drive is likely to result in more damage. Sometimes the data is scraped from the hard drive’s platters and turned into magnetic dust. Your data cannot be recovered if it’s not there anymore.
  • If the hard drive is not recognized in the setup when you connect it to a computer, do not attempt recovery. If you attempt to swap the circuit board with an identical model, there is a chance the bad sector table (adaptive) could be removed in the process.
  • Running utility software that changes the drive’s firmware or bad sector table might cause permanent corruption of the data, and you should avoid it.
  • Don’t try this at home. “Home remedies” belong to the era where experts were not readily available to help. If you really want the data, get it to a specialist.
