Bad sectors – deterioration to the magnetic media causes raw spots and when the drive attempts to read the damaged data the result is scratching, freezing, clicking or ticking. Data is lost due to damage caused to the surface heads.
Read / Write head glitch – knocking, clicking, beeping sounds. A hard knock or fall, or unexpected termination may dislodge the heads. Then on start up, the heads are incapable of returning to their proper position, which results in the knocking/clicking sounds.
- Firmware – when a module gets corrupted, the hard drive isn’t able to initialize correctly and stops working;
- Possible error messages related to firmware:
- “No operating system found”
- “S.M.A.R.T. Capable But Command Failed”
- “Primary Master Hard Disk Fail” “Disk boot failure. Insert system disk and press enter”
- “USB Device malfunctioned”
- “Drive Mount Failure”
- “Hard drive not recognized”
If you suspect at any time, that there is something wrong with your LaCie external drive, if it has crashed, or doesn’t want to start, cut off the power supply immediately and get into contact with a data recovery lab. This may be the only sure way to recover your data. Never try to fix the problem yourself – this will cause more harm than good.
Data Detect provides recovery on all LaCie Storage devices – some as shown.
Each recovery case begins with a free diagnostic to determine the potential for recovery and to provide a firm price-quote for your review. The initial diagnosis determines whether the media is accessible to our lab equipment. If so, the first priority is to create a raw image of the data in our data recovery Mumbai lab,
Each recovery case begins with a free diagnostic to determine the potential for recovery and to provide a firm price-quote for your review. The initial diagnosis determines whether the media is accessible to our lab equipment so that logical analysis can determine the nature of the data loss situation.
Recovery of crashed hard disks often involves replacing failed or damaged components in a clean environment (Clean room class 100) and using specialized hardware and software tools to create the raw image.
Recovering lost data requires engineers to have a great deal of expertise and knowledge about different hardware systems, file systems, operating systems and software. This is precisely why when it comes to providing Apple XServe and Xsan Data Recovery services, Data Recovery Mumbai is considered as an ideal choice.
