Hard disk is the primary storage device used in all computers. Being the primary storage point it holds all data stored in the computer. Destruction of this data can be accidental or as a result of disk corruption. When this occurs, the user is always engulfed by fear of losing data permanently. Recovery of hard disk is similar to get back our stolen car- ‘aah’ you will get your files back, but the results could be fishy. One thing you should keep in mind, after a hard-disk failure there’s no guaranty that you will get back your data in its original condition, so it’s always good to synchronize or back up your most important files.
Anyways, coming back to hard-disk recovery, first thing you have to do is to determine if it’s really a hard-drive failure and not one of the other equipment glitches which causes a boot failure. If you have access to some another PC, remove the collapsed disk from your sick PC and hook it up as a secondary drive to any other alternate PC. You can do this by using a USB universal drive adapter, which is always good to have around for all sorts of hard-drive diagnostics.
If this isn’t the solution, then you must be having a severe disk failure. Don’t panic! The next step is, you should start by finding what’s the reason behind disk failure, it must be among the two ways which are often found, logical failure and mechanical failure. For logical failure, there is data recovery software which can be used for hard disk recovery in case such a situation occurs. When used, this software ensures that the data is gotten back in its initial form since it does not change the form or state of the data in question. It is always important that the data structures are identified before the recovery process begins.
If it’s a mechanical damage, recovery of the disk can be achieved through replacement of the damaged sections within the disk. If a partition in the disk fails or the file system is damaged they can be repaired using the chkdsk command and to secure the data that are contained in the disk. Several technologies have been discovered to facilitate the restoration of data lost through over writing. Magnetic force microscope technology can be used when data is lost through over writing of the existing files. Data recovery software can be used since most of them have wizards which always guide the user in order to run successfully.
If the recovery fails using the above methods, Lift your desktop’s CPU or Lappy and come to our office or any other companies which are specialized in recovery of data from damaged disks. You can meet service engineers and your problem can be consulted to assist in the process. However the institutions offer their services at a cost. Before one contacts the company, he or she must validate the credibility of the company to avoid being a victim of the ghost companies. The above methods make one to remain assured that the data is safe even if the hard disk is damaged.
