Hard disk failure is a common problem, however, leaves serious impacts. It occurs even if you observe best possible maintaining practices. Your first reaction to this is absolute fear of losing all the countless essential document and files you have saved in your computer.  Commonly, users are not aware of the major causes contributing to the failure of a hard disk.

Hard disk can fail in many ways that can result to possible lost of data.

Mechanical Failure

Strange noises such as grinding, clicking or screeching likely mean that mechanical failure is imminent. Similar to logical hard drive failure, computer crashes and frequent freezing can also be symptoms. This type of failure occurs when the read-write head or other components become faulty as a result of normal wear and tear.

For mechanical failure, the hard disk needs to be opened up in a clean room by a service specialist. The drive will be taken apart and investigated in order for stored data and information to be recovered.

Logical failure

Disappearing data, disk errors and a sluggish system are all signs of impending logical hard drive failure. This refers to non-physical failure, or in other words, when damage occurs in a hard drive’s file structure or software rather than the actual hardware. Many factors can contribute to logical failure, including malware infections, human error and corrupted files. Sometimes the failure can be extensive enough that the system will not boot up.

If you will try to attempt to run a fix utility on your drive, you might make recoverable data difficult to recover. Contact a service specialist to fix your logical corruption problems.

Physical Damage

Heat and water can cause significant physical damage to hard drives’ electronic parts, which are not built to survive both elements. Hard disks are not shock resistant either, so Hard disk shock most often results in a head crash, which occurs when the read-write head of the drive touches the magnetic platter, scratching the platter’s surface and thus causing sometimes-irreparable data loss.

Moreover, your computer should never be too hot to touch. Make sure that your computer’s fan isn’t blocked so that it can provide adequate ventilation.

Firmware crash

If the computer does recognize the hard disk but the system will hang during the boot process, this indicates a firmware corruption. If the firmware is corrupted, your computer will often unable to correctly interact with the hard disk.

Firmware failures aren’t that common, but if they do happen, the best idea is to rely on a reputable service specialist to successfully recover date from hard drive with firmware faults.
