Signs You May Need External Hard Drive Data Recovery
External hard drives are susceptible to many different modes of failure. While some are less severe than others, professional data recovery is the best remedy for most problems. Here are some good indicators that you should give us a call:
- You hear strange clicking, grinding or whirring noises from the drive
- The device enclosure seems to get much hotter than usual
- Your computer fails to detect or recognize the external drive
- You can't read files you once accessed normally
- You receive error messages when you attempt to connect or mount the device
- Files mysteriously go missing or become corrupted
What Step Should You Take Following an External Hard Drive Crash?
When your external hard drive crashes, your first inclination may be to use a software-based recovery tool. In reality, however, this often makes things worse by increasing corruption or storage errors. Don't run third-party diagnostics or otherwise attempt to correct the issue.
To minimize the chances of the problem spreading, simply unmount, physically disconnect and power down the device. If possible, avoid removing the drive from the external enclosure. Your recovery team might need the device in its original state to determine what went wrong. In the event of a mechanical failure, improper removal could cause more damage to connectors and confuse the issue.
Next, call a TTR Data Recovery specialist to start your case. Letting us know exactly what happened and what you were doing when the failure occurred can make it much easier to remedy the fault.
