Damaged Hard Drive
How Did My Hard Drive Become Damaged?
You can find yourself with a damaged hard drive for a number of reasons. If you believe you have a damaged hard drive, think about whether you may have experienced any of the following scenarios:
- Did you shut down your computer improperly?
- Was there a power outage causing your computer to suddenly shut down?
- Was your system exposed to moisture, or do you have a water damaged hard drive?
This is just one symptom that may create the need for professional hard drive recovery. Also, much like a sudden power outage, power surges can wreak havoc on your drive.
Also consider the age of your hard disk drive. How old is it and what is its actual life expectancy? An aging hard drive can have deteriorating sectors which can cause a disk read error and can cause and eventual hard drive crash.
Once you’ve figure out why you have a damaged hard drive, know that the very next thing you must do is attempt to recover data. If you heed the early warning signs of a damaged hard drive, you can back up your data on another drive for safekeeping and later retrieval. If you don’t take this important step, it is just that much harder to restore your lost data from a damaged hard drive.
