Hard Drive Recovery Emails and Articles

Samsung 840 Pro 256GB
I bought a Samsung 840 Pro 256GB a little while back. I installed it on the computer as an extra backup space. While I was doing cleanup on my computer, I noticed that I only have about 10GB of free space. I was thinking of getting another hard drive, possibly an external one, so I can move some documents from the SSD to a permanent backup drive. This will give me more space on the computer while I keep important documents that I don’t frequently use. Unfortunately before I could get a backup drive the hard drive failed. It simply will not boot up.

I transferred my SATA hard drive from one motherboard to another motherboard. After doing this, it looks like the hard drive is not spinning like before. Due to this, the hard drive is not detected on BIOS. I tried it back on the old motherboard and the hard drive is not working. I tried other connectors on the other motherboard but to no avail. The computer doesn’t really recognise the hard drive no matter what I do.

Regain Your Data Using Samsung Hard Disk Recovery

Samsung hard disks are used in many different systems as both internal and external hard drives. If you find that you are no longer able to access the data on your disk then you should call one of our Samsung hard disk recovery specialists who will be able to provide you with a number of things. Firstly, they will be able to diagnose exactly what is wrong with your drive over the phone using their extensive experience in recovering data from Samsung drives. They will explain how serious a problem it is that you have and will provide you with a brief overview of how your system can be recovered. In some cases you can safely recover your data at home using freely available software, but more often than not you will require the assistance of professionals so that we can utilise all of the software and tools that we have at our disposal. Therefore we can also provide you with a quote and estimated timescale for the recovery to be carried out.

There are many different models of Samsung hard disk, but some of those that we have successfully recovered data from are the HS040HB, HD300LD, HM080HC and the HD400LD. Samsung hard disks are generally very reliable, but even with the most reliable hard disk there are still faults that can occur that lead to the corruption of an operating system or the corruption of the data on the drive.

Corruption of the operating system is one of the more common problems that are seen. Errors are introduced into the operating system software that can lead to your computer not booting up at all due to the volume not being mountable and it can also lead to your data becoming damaged or corrupted, especially if you do not utilise a partitioned hard drive. Many of these cases can be rectified relatively easily by repairing the operating system, but in order to ensure that the data is kept intact it is usually advisable to have a back-up of the data files made before attempting to repair the operating system.

It is not always the system that is at fault. Sometimes user error causes your files to become unavailable. If you make modifications to the way the operating system accesses the data files you may inadvertently change the access rights so that data becomes inaccessible. It is also possible to accidentally delete files that you still require. If either of these occurs they are relatively straightforward to sort out by resetting permissions or by redefining the pointer to the file that has been deleted.

Physical damage to the drive can cause a lot more complex issues when it comes to data recovery. This is because a firmware failure or an electrical surge through the drive can not only cause basic access problems, it can also cause the data on the drive to become corrupted as well. Viruses can also cause significant amounts of corruption to files that increase the complexity of recovering data intact.
