A hard drive has become a vital part of our lives as it is used to store all our digital data such as music, pictures, videos etc in it. An external hard drive is connected from an outside port & offers the convenience for expanded storage capacity, to back up your internal drives and the ability to easily move files from one computer to another. They are particularly convenient for laptop or notebook users.

They are great for storing data–until they fail. Any electronic or mechanical device is subject to break down. No matter how new or old the device is, it can fail to function normally, and there’s nothing you can do to avoid it. You may even be the cause of your lost data, by doing some accidental deleting.

The effect of the failure of such external disk drives can be annihilating. Therefore, external hard drive data recovery is a requirement to save ourselves from the destructive effects of the loss of critical data such as financial information, pictures, official documents etc.

How Do They Fail?

The Most Common Causes of Failure:

Data loss on external hard drives is fairly exceptional as long as you care for your drive properly, but it still can occur. There are many reasons that might cause your external drive to lose data, such as:

Physical damage
Deleted partition or logical drives
Files written to bad sectors
Virus attacks
Accidentally deleted files

Corrupt backup or application data
Accidental reformatting
Power surges
Tangled Cords and Cables
“Hard” shutdowns


The best defense against data loss is to frequently back up your system and defend your external hard drive(s) from extreme heat, moisture and physical harm. Be sure to shield your drives against power surges or other electrical issues. Taking good care of your equipment could save you the time, money and hassle of having to recover lost files.

What to Do Next?

Once a hard disk drive gets damaged, we should not keep the damaged device for further usage as it might result in further corrosion of the system. A repair utility should also not be carried out on the data of a damaged drive as it might convert all the retrievable data to an irretrievable form.
