Data recovery is an essential process in computing that involves retrieving lost, damaged, corrupted or inaccessible data from secondary storage devices when the data cannot be assessed in the normal way. Data recovery comes into play due to several factors. The most common scenarios where data recovery is needed are an operating system failure, logical failure of the storage devices, physical damages to the device, accidental deletion and formatting, and malfunction of the storage device. The simple solution is to copy the data from the damaged device to another device that works fine.
Why do we need Firmware Repair tools then?
Often a data storage device might be self-damaged. This can be understood when there is no detection of the drive or the drive shows 0 space available in BIOS, Smart errors, and so on. In such cases, the methods mentioned above are not applicable as the hard disk is not working.
Now every hard disk has its own management script, also known as the firmware. The firmware consists of different command levels like G-list, P-list, T-list, SMART table and others. Using these firmware repair tools, the damaged firmware modules can be repaired and passwords can be removed before working on the data recovery process. The firmware tools can repair firmware failures of hard drives and helps us to recover the data from such hard drives.
