Data Recovery Services For Faulty SATA Hard Drives Successfully
Data recovery can be done to retrieve data lost from any kind of hard drive, platform, media of storage etc. be it a Mac or Windows, Novell or Linux, Or it can be NAS or San drive.
Last week, I learn something new. Data Recovery services could be availed for Mac machines as well. Though this fantastic machine is not so prone to problems, but if at all they develop, it is very difficult to get data back, unless you have sufficient backup in place. Backups are the most reliant ways for data retrieval in case of any problem. But in their absence, one has to opt for data recovery using appropriate means.
One such incident happened, when some MacBook notebooks were found to have faulty 2.5-in. SATA hard disk drives. These hard drives had a manufacturing defect owing to which the drive heads failed mechanically, and detached from the arm after some use and scratched the data area of the drive, thereby causing permanent data loss. If the user finds such a problem on his/her hard disk drive, then they can be sure of losing most of the data, if not all of it, unless they had a backup on another sturdy media. Since the head ploughed deep into the platter, most of the damage occurred to the inner tracks, but that doesn't mean that the outer tracks were spared.
Many Mac users with firmware version 7.01 faced this problem. Though many hard drives were replaced, and refunding of the charges paid for repair had to be paid, but the damage that was done was unrepairable and non-returnable.
To effectively handle this case, the users were advised to immediately stop using the hard drive. This prevented the head to scratch the platter much, thus increasing the possibility of data recovery. The more the scratching, the lesser were the chances for recovery. Many lucky people found that all their data was recovered, thanks to the data recovery services. These services when opted should be from a reliable provider, who has experience in handling sensitive media and the data stored therein. In cases like this, the hard drive needs to be opened, and head needs to be replaced, or changed first, so a sterilized clean room with controlled environment should be available, so as to ensure that no dust or particle settles between the writing area, and the head.
