Hard Drive Recovery

Even as new data storage technologies evolve, conventional hard disk drives (HDDs) remain a popular choice for home and business data storage. Widely used in workstations, laptops, and RAID servers, hard disk drives have evolved in a number of ways to fulfill user needs, and remain an affordable choice as the price per terabyte of storage has dropped dramatically over the years. 

We trust hard disk drives with our mission critical spreadsheets, documents, photos, videos, music, and many other forms of data. When a hard drive fails, it spells disaster. 

Industry High Success Rates

24 Hour Data has industry high data recovery success rates when it comes to extracting data from conventional hard disk drives. A drive requires logical recovery if files have been deleted accidentally, corrupt or otherwise damaged. Our engineers have state-of-the-art data recovery techniques to repair and extract the files you need quickly, permitting us to keep our prices affordable for businesses and individuals who need logical data recovery. 

If a hard drive has been physically damaged or has worn out after too many read/write cycles, the drive may require physical recovery to extract lost data. This requires a certified clean room environment to limit contaminants that may enter the drive and improve the odds of a successful recovery operation. Our engineers have the skills, talent, expertise and industry partners to first obtain parts to repair a damaged drive, fix the drive in a clean room environment, and then extract the lost data, transferring it to a new drive for safe storage, where it can be reintegrated into your workstation, laptop, notebook or RAID array.

Don’t Take Chances with Your Data

In spite of the many myths and misconceptions about do-it-yourself data recovery, if you need your data back fast, and can’t afford to take the chance of losing it all, you need the help of data recovery professionals. Nothing else can replace the expertise and environment of professional data recovery specialists in a certified data recovery lab, to increase the odds of getting your data back. Whether you are talking mission critical accounting files for a Fortune 500 firm, or family photos on a home media server, we’ll get your important data back – or there’s no charge for our service. 

Understanding Hard Drive Failure

Hard drives use a magnetic head to read data imprinted on spinning platters. A hard drive can fail if the platter develops bad sectors, preventing the head from reading data from that sector. It can fail if the platter becomes scratched or knocked out of alignment. Or it can fail if the magnetic head actually gets stuck to the platter. This is called a head crash and could mean complete data loss if you don’t call a professional data recovery service to repair the drive and extract the data. 

When hard drive failure is occurring or imminent, often signaled by a beeping or clicking hard drive, it’s important to power down your drive immediately. Taking any other action, including repeatedly rebooting the computer to attempt to read the data on the drive, could ruin the hard drive and make data recovery impossible. If the 24 Hour Data engineers can get your data back after such extensive damage, it’s likely to cost more. 

Power down your computer at the first sign of hard drive failure and call 24 Hour Data. Our recovery success rates are so good, you can be assured you’ll see your data again if you do the right thing and call us. You’ll be surprised at how affordable conventional hard disk drive recovery may be.

Hard Disk Drive History

In 1956, IBM deployed the first hard disk drives for commercial use. These early drives measured 18 or 14 inches and were mounted in standalone boxes or equipment racks. In 1980, hard disk storage leader Seagate introduced the first 5.25” hard disk drive to ship in a desktop computer. 
Hard disk drives have followed a trend similar to Moore’s Law in terms of development. Moore’s Law states that in the history of computing hardware, the number of transistors on integrated circuits doubles approximately every two years. Hard disk storage capacity expands as the price per megabyte (and, most recently, terabyte) drops, based on a phenomenon called Kryder’s Law. Today, 4TB drives and larger are affordable even for consumer users. 
While the basics of hard drive operation have remained the same for decades, today’s hard drives include hybrid drives, combining the best aspects of hard disk drives with solid state technology, and encrypted drives. Drives using Full Disk Encryption (FDE) encrypt data at the hardware level for protection against unauthorized viewing or use, even if a laptop or external hard disk drive is stolen. 

Professional Data Recovery Services for All Hard Disk Drives

As hard disk technology has evolved to include hybrid and encrypted drives, data recovery becomes more challenging. It takes professionals to safely extract data from an encrypted drive or to repair the components of a hybrid drive before recovery. 
Whether it’s a conventional hard disk drive, encrypted drive or hybrid drive, 24 Hour Data has stayed ahead of the technology curve, offering state-of-the-art proprietary data recovery methods to ensure high data recovery success rates. 
When mission critical data is on the line, you don’t want to trust just anyone to recover your data, and you definitely don’t want to attempt do-it-yourself data recovery. If your hard drive is clicking, beeping, or is in a failing state, or has suffered a data recovery emergency such as fires, flooding or shock damage, call the experts. The professionals at 24 Hour Data will get your important data back promptly, or there’s no charge for our service.
