External Hard Drive Data Recovery

We have 98% success rate in External Hard Drive Recovery!

External (USB) hard drive or portable hard drives comprise of a enclosure made up of a typical hard disk having a USB interface adapter. Hence, these kinds of products are susceptible to all the common problems associated with hard drives as well as others that the external enclosure and interface may contribute. Portable external hard drives are usually dropped or toppled over, this almost always triggers a physical fault of some sort and leads to the hard drive making a ticking sound if it is next powered on. Retrieving the information from portable hard drives with defects similar to this is possible when the precise fault has been identified and the storage device has been accurately repaired.

External Hard Disk Drive Problems:

A couple of the most frequent problems we have observed with portable hard drives are:

Shock Damage: The drives get toppled over, dropped, bumped etc. In nearly all cases, the causing impact they go through will cause issues.
Excessive heating: The drives usually tend to overheat. This is because insufficient ventilation within the external cover. Some portable hard drives don’t feature any air flow system at all, a few devices may include a fan inside the actual enclosure to overcome temperature accumulation.

 

Symptoms:

If the hard drive is dropped:
The drive probably will make a ticking noise when powered on. Normally, this is a sign of damage to the read / write heads &/or the motor. Retrieval of data is often possible
If hard drive is Bumped:
The drive will make a humming noise – generally a sign of a seized spindle. Data is almost often recoverable.
In case the disk drive is Over-heating:
The drive will all of a sudden stop functioning and not be recognized in the BIOS, or the system will appear to begin functioning slowly and unusual noises from the external hard drive can be heard.

External Hard Drive Recovery Options:

Totally dependent on the nature of the condition. Heat associated problems are generally simpler to correct than shock damage issues.

Do Not:
Under no circumstances should you continue to use the external hard drive as you may possibly cause even more damage to the device. Also, you must not allow the system to perform a repair utility on the drive (in particular Chkdsk / Scandisk / Defragmenter etc) – this will often make recoverable data unrecoverable.

What if I have one of these hard drives however the symptoms are different?:
This is very much possible. These drives remain vulnerable to all the other problems hard drives are affected by ie. logical failure,
mechanical failure, bad sectors etc. Look at our regular types of hard drive failure page.
