Types of Hard Drive Failures
Hard drives are bound to fail eventually over time. There are two main types of hard drive failures. The most common is a logical failure. The second type of failure is a mechanical or physical failure.
- Logical Hard Drive Failure: The hard drive’s internal components are functional, but other complications are causing the data to be inaccessible. The integrity of the data is compromised and the data stored is damaged in some way. Common causes of logical hard drive failures include accidental formatting or deletion of files, corrupt or missing partitions, operating system errors, corrupt file system, or a computer virus.
- Mechanical Hard Drive Failure: Most hard drives contain internal moving parts. When a mechanical or physical failure occurs, one or more of the internal components has malfunctioned. The drive may be experiencing difficulty spinning or in some cases not spin at all. This will result in data that cannot be accessed unless the drive is opened in a clean room environment and rebuilt mechanically. Common causes of mechanical hard drive failures include head crashes, alignment issues, broken motor, or spindle problems.
What To Do If Your Hard Drive Has Failed
If you suspect your hard drive needs data recovery, taking some precautions can dramatically increase the chances of a successful recovery. Our experts highly recommend discontinuing all usage to the hard drive if your device shows symptoms of failure. Continuing to power up a potentially failing hard drive can cause further irreversible damage.
