Hard Drive Repair For Macs And PCs
As a company with a hard drive repair and hard drive data recovery focus, we understand that losing your data can be a difficult thing. If it’s personal data, perhaps a word document or a number of less important files, often it can be easily written down as a simple mistake, one which can be remedied with relatively inexpensive data recovery software.
But, there are cases when hard disks fail and simply must be repaired. As an example, let’s say you just spent five hundred hours scanning in a mass of family photos. Let’s say that many of these photos have been restored digitally. Losing this hard drive altogether is simply not an option.
Unfortunately, at some point it happens to all of us. It’s never planned for, and certainly isn’t anyone’s fault. A failed or broken hard drive. Whether it had been making clicking or buzzing hard disk noises, or it simply crashed outright, a broken down hard disk drive is a difficult, but inevitable situation. Although it should be common PC user knowledge, the physical hard drive crash problem is not something we expect. It’s new equipment, after all, and some hard drives last for 15 years plus. Surely a hard disk failure can’t happen to something this new.
An alternative case may be your business computer. For many companies, hard drive repair is a must when mission critical data (such as in MS SQL and Oracle data recovery cases) is lost, either due to a file system error, or an actual hard disk freeze or problem.
Some companies keep their entire customer database on one drive, and discover one day that their IT staff wasn’t using an effective backup solution – the result: a lot of lost data, and serious concern.
Data Recovery Mistakes – The First Hour
Our data recovery service technicians have virtually seen it all when it comes to hard drive crash or hard disk failures. This is why we can safely tell you that the most damage to your potential data recovery is typically performed within the first hour of loss.
For many users, this means downloading and installing large “data recovery utilities”; for others, it may mean repetitive rebooting of the system. For still others hard drive damage can occur because symptoms such as hard disk clicking noise or buzzing sounds have been ignored.
We have grown accustomed to this, but it is also why we encourage all users encountering to always contacted data recovery service first.
It does not have to be Hard Drive Recovery Group per se, but it should be a professional data recovery service. In the end, the expense of any data recovery service is determined within the first hour of hard drive failure. The sooner you can contact a professional data recovery service, the lower the cost of hard drive recovery.
Hard Drive Failures Happen, But Can Be Fixed
A lot of people have the above thoughts running through their mind when they experience a catastrophic data loss, and it is certainly understandable when you find your hard drive broken. But what many people do not understand about today’s hard disk drives is that they run fast, run hot, and as a result can break. There is simply nothing you can do to avoid it.
Certainly, backing up your data is the best way to save yourself money in situations where hard drive recovery may be necessary. Certainly, with specialty mission critical items which might require RAID or exchange data recovery services in case of data loss, backup is absolutely essential.
Drive Not Backed Up
But what if you did not back up your drive? Recent statistics show that a large majority of PC users do not backup, so if you haven’t you are not alone. But in cases where your hard drive has physically failed, you are going to need help. Today’s hard disk technology is simply not for the do it yourselfer looking to perform his own data recovery and especially when important data is at risk. There should be no such thing as do it yourself MS exchange recovery as an example. (In cases where file system problems are the cause, hard disk recovery software is typically prescribed).
When Your File System Is Corrupted
The default Microsoft Windows 10 file system is known is NTFS. NTFS is an acronym for New Technology File System, and is a core of the Windows architecture. The benefits of the NTFS file system are numerous: the system is highly recoverable, and features several built-in tools for file recovery. The Mac HFS+ file system is similarly structured, with journaling functions to enable easy Mac data recovery. At Hard Drive Recovery Group, we are here to help ensure that the file recovery tools you are using when you encounter problems are the correct ones.
When Software Can Repair Your Hard Disk
If you experience simple file system corruption, Hard Drive Recovery Group can offer a quick solution to what seems like a rather heinous problem. Our data recovery software can often return your data and fix your file system within 30 minutes.

Do You Need Hard Drive Repair?
Be aware that many of our competitors recommend hard drive repair as a “first resort”. At Hard Drive Recovery Group, we see it
as a last resort.
As an example, if only your boot record is missing, our line of data recovery software should be able to return your drive to service within an hour. Our technicians are trained to determine the root cause of your hard disk failure over the phone, and we always choose the path of least resistance.
We will say, however, that there are always cases where hard disk repair is a must. These include:
- Fire or flood damage
- Drive failure (typically accompanied by
clicking or buzzing noises)
- And others
Unfortunately, hard disk drives are incredibly fragile devices. Each year hard disk drive manufacturers work harder to ensure more and more data can be saved to data platters, and that hard drives are shrunk smaller and smaller each year. The side effect of this is that hard drives run hotter than ever.
At Hard Drive Recovery Group, 95% of the hard disk repair cases we receive are because of hard drive meltdown or overheating. In cases where your hard disk has suffered mechanical hard drive failure, data recovery software simply will not help. What’s more, attempting to repair your hard disk using simple tools at home will almost guarantee that your data is unrecoverable.
This is a simple fact: without professional tools and a data recovery technician with experience, attempting to repair your hard disk is a tremendous gamble. A simple toll-free phone call will ensure you won’t have to make the same mistake many of our customers have.
