Samsung Hard Drive Failure - Data Recovery
Samsung's hard disk division has been sold to Seagate in a deal reportedly involving $1.7 Billion Samsung Hard Disk Drives account for circa 10% of the global market. The product range "as is" is of exceptional performance, and high reliability however all hard drives are susceptible to failure after prolonged use or misuse: Typical problems are:
On both laptop and desktop hard disk drives applications are resident on the
actual hard disk PCB. These applications interact with the computer BIOS
to ensure the operation of the hard disk is efficient and error free. Applications
are written during manufacture and are specific to families of hard disk
drives. Once the information is corrupt the drive will not function properly
or not interact with the BIOS at all. The hard disk may:
- Not be recognised correctly in the BIOS and computer hangs
- Not be recognised at all in the BIOS
- Run slowly making regular ticking noise at start up
All Hard Disks Drives have a recommended life span
in terms of run hours and if in regular use will eventually fail
as a result of a mechanical failure. The most common component
to fail in a hard disk drive is the read/write heads. For a variety
of reasons the heads fail to fly over the surface of the platters
on an air bearing and will collide with the platters. The resulting
collisions cause damage and failure of the head ceramic component
with resulting poor definition magnetic patterning. The outcome
is total failure or an accumulation of bad or corrupt data sectors.
Bad or corrupt sectors will cause the computer to hang or run
unacceptably slowly as the applications attempt to correct the
Misuse or environmental damage:
Mains Power Surge
Over voltage damage power cable misplaced.
Broken Pin or Pins/ Data Cable IDE SATA SCSI damage
contaminated platters typically drink spillage of flood damage
Corruption of systems files FAT
Recycle Bin emptied or files were deleted in error.
incorrectly Formatted Hard drives
partitioning or boot-up sector problems
Forgotten or Lost Password removal from Hard Disk.
Please Note: Hard disks made by all manufacturers are subject
to similar problems. Samsung hard disks are no more prone to
developing them than any other manufacturer’s hard disk.
Datlabs problem solving expertise and facilities offer you the
best chance of recovering data from any type and manufacture
of failed hard disk drives or storage media.
