Previously it was unimaginable to presume that data lost through hard disk crashes can be recovered in its entirety but thanks to the tech savvy community for devising mechanisms whereby that has been rendered possible. Hard drives, contrary to their appearance are fragile devices which suffer reverses when slightest of vibrations are caused leave aside rapid jerks and manhandling.
Hard drive crashes are quite a menace and their occurrence should be minimized by employing all possible means at one’s disposal. There can be a host of factors that result in hard drive crashes but the concern is not the incidence of the crashes but the intensity and the magnitude of damages in terms of data loss that follows a typical hard drive crash.
Hard drive crashes can be caused due to logical or physical failures. It goes without saying, that in case of a physical crash the physical components of the hard drive are affected and thus the hard drive stops functioning rendering the data stored in it inaccessible and defunct.
This is a critical situation as one never gets to know what has possibly gone wrong inside the hard drive that might have caused it to fail and the options hovers around a probable head crash, PCB/Logical board failure, motor and spindle malfunctions, scratches on platters and the list seems unending. Damages caused due to natural disasters, (smoke, floods, fire), electrostatic shocks, physical destruction of the components, mechanical faults are all categorized under physical crashes.
Logical crashes on the other hand are categorized as damages that are caused due to accidental format, virus problems, software malfunction, file/directory deletion, unexpected shutdown; media read error, system file corruption and sabotage.
However, it is a little luckier if logical crash has occurred as easier workarounds are available to make good this loss. Though no generalizations can be attempted, data lost due to logical crashes can be successfully and effectively recovered from damaged and corrupt hard drives by employing data recovery software.
The most commonly encountered problem that breeds further damage to the hard drive rendering it impossible for the data recovery experts to extract data is the uncontrolled desire of an operator to open the hard drive and meddle with the physical components in an attempt to set the alignments right. This is the last thing that you can do to facilitate the process of data deletion. Majority of the folks well versed in computer applications presume themselves to be expert enough to handle a task that requires years of experience, knowledge and skill.
Data recovery is a specialized activity, which requires express training and research and can under no circumstances be considered as a layman’s preserve.
