Direct Computer is your local data recovery and hard drive data retrieval expert!
If you need your computer repaired or just need your data recovered, we are here for you! Your hard drive is where all of the data, pictures, music, and other files, including Windows or another operating system is stored. Is your hard drive making strange clunking, grinding or whirring sounds that it never made before? If yes, it’s not a question of ‘if’ your hard drive is going to crash — the question really is ‘when’, because every hard drive will eventually fail.
Hard Disk Drives do Fail!
Whether you hear strange noises from your computer or your computer is crashing intermittently, you may suspect you have a damaged hard drive. Average hard drive life cycles are generally estimated at three to five years, and some drives last 10 years or more. Those figures aren’t very comforting if your drive fails after six months and you don’t have a data backup.
Laptop computer users need to be especially careful. Laptop hard drives have a very high rate of failure, due to the mobility of the laptops; hard drives do not like to be bumped or dropped around.
Most Common Hard Drive Failure Symptoms:
So why do hard drives fail, often more frequently than they should? How can we tell when they are experiencing trouble? The answers are pretty straightforward; knowing them can save you hours of PC misery.
- The drive is running extremely slowly
- Clicking, whirring, and other physical noise
- The hard drive isn’t recognized in the BIOS
- S.M.A.R.T. warns you of impending hard drive failure
Despite talk about data loss due to viruses and software glitches, hardware failure remains the most likely cause of data failure. According to data recovery firm Ontrack, hardware or system failure is the most common cause of data loss, at 56%. However, human error is next, at 26%, with software/program corruption (9%) way down the list. That’s a one-in-four chance the file you cannot find is gone because you saved over it, deleted it, or otherwise damaged it. If your hard drive is actually failing, you may have seen warning signs, and if not, there are ways to check the drive for problems.
Accidental data deletion. Now what?
We’re all familiar with that sinking feeling. It follows the realization that you’ve just deleted something important, such as an Excel spreadsheet containing a year’s worth of important customer data. As soon as you realize something’s gone, the first thing to do is stop. Stop working, stop saving, stop downloading, stop installing. Stop everything. The last thing you want to do is overwrite “deleted” data, which is probably not deleted at all, with something newer. Also, make sure you don’t let any backups or hard drive maintenance utilities run because they can also overwrite or corrupt valuable sources of data recovery.
Direct Computer offer’s quick data recovery in Perrysburg service. We can back up your Hard Drive and transfer all Documents/Pictures/Audio/Video files on to a DVD, CD, External HDD or another computer.
Traditional HDDs (hard disk drives) are mechanical devices composed of stacked platters that spin very quickly (7,200rpm is common). Read/write heads, connected to a moving arm, hover above the platters separated by a cushion of air.
Our workshop tools allow very successful data recovery on portable media digital storage such as; MemoryStick, CompactFlash, MultiMediaCard, miniSD, xD-Picture, SmartMedia and SD cards.
If you own a computer, problems will happen with it eventually. You press the Power button and . . . nothing. You drop it, if it is a laptop, and the screen breaks. A power surge takes out one critical component, rendering the computer useless. There isn’t much you can do to stave off wear and tear, accidents, and nature, but as long as the hard drive is intact, you can still get your data off the machine.
