Hard drives have a surprising failure rate due to its damaged recording surfaces which account for 70% of drive failures. They are mechanical devices with motors and all of them have the same structure. And vary according to the usage of the parts in the single structure. The platters, spindle motor head, and head actuator are the inside parts of the hard drive which are sealed in the hard disk assembly chamber. The hard disk assembly chamber should only be opened by data recovery specialists. The outside components of the drives are logic board, bezel and mounting equipment which some time can be repaired by users if a minor and known defect occurs.
How Specialists Recover Your Hard Drive Data
Hard drives are like a precision instrument and should be handled with care. Desktop and servers’ hard drives are not as much susceptible to handle shock anyway, while laptop hard drives handle shocks due to their fragile structure. Hard drive recovery specialist performs data recovery on all desktops, servers and laptop computer hard drives, whether they use Windows, Mac OS, or Linux operating system. Generally, they pass your hard drives through a process which contains three teams before final treatment.
- Assessment Team – This is the first stage where hard disks get initial data recovery treatment. Assessment team can assess up to thirty disk drives within a minute with the help of its dedicated PC3K data recovery workstations. A full diagnostic survey of the hard drives is carried out to determine the state of the media and the chances of successful data recovery. After making an assessment of the hard drive, the team communicates to the client to make a decision whether to continue with the recovery process or they need more assistance from the team.
- Continued Assessment Team – This team re-analyze the hard disk to check the complexity of the hard drive failures. It uses advanced data recovery tools such as class 100 cleanroom, workspace, donor spares, PC3K spider board adaptors, data extractors, and platter removal jigs. This team carries more complicated recovery work to finish the process. If in the case data formatting is required due to the high level of corruption, then the disk is sent to the next stage.
- Strong Research and Development Team – Hard disks become more complex to recover in this stage and require tools and handlers made for particular problem. The team often requires specific software to repair corrupted data and some hardware to deal with the corrupted data. The whole process can lead to taking weeks’ time and sometimes even months.
