Hard Disk Mechanical Failure Symptoms And Sound Detection

Hello Friends, Welcome to Data Empires. Many peoples know about the mechanical issue of hard drive and their symptoms. Generally, a normal person knows that, if the clicking sound comes from the hard disk, then it might be a mechanical fault. In such a case, the head will be damaged. But there are many other mechanical issues in the hard disk which the general user does not know.

If the spindle motor gets stuck in the hard disk, or if the head is stuck on the platter, then also, it is considered a mechanical fault. When such a fault occurs, a very low sound will come from the hard disk, which we will have to listen it very carefully.

If the hard drive is working too slow, then its head might be very weak. It might also be a firmware problem if the hard drive works slow. In such a scenario, first of all, we have to repair the firmware of the hard disk. After solving the firmware issues, if the problem still persists, then we will have to solve it mechanically.

In this session, we will be learning about what happens, when there is a mechanical fault in a hard disk, and what might be its symptoms. Also, we will be learning how to confirm the mechanical fault, in the hard disk without opening the top cover, using the sound detection method.

What is Mechanical Failure?

Mechanical failure is a failure that happens when some moveable parts of HDD stop working because of several reasons. In fact, a hard disk drive uses a mechanical actuator that moves around a rotating storage disk for reading and writing the data. Over time, the amount of movement in the drives increases, and it leads to the mechanical failure of your laptop or certain server-based hard drive. Even the slightest mechanical failure can lead to data loss.
Many of us have experienced mechanical failure. So, don’t worry, you are not alone! According to the hard drive manufacturers, 1.5% of the hard disks fail at the very first year of purchasing and do not last up to 3 to 7 years, as told for the hard disk’s specifications.

Common Indicators of Mechanical Failure:

These are the common indicators of mechanical failure. It may differ based on the degree of the problems and the components of HDD.

1. Unusual sounds from HDD device
2. When your computer does not recognize the hard drive
3. Folders in the computer seem to be corrupted or disappeared
4. Excessively slow down your operating speed or computer
5. Burning parts of electronics

Significant Reasons for Mechanical Failure:

As mentioned above, many reasons can lead to mechanical failure. Such as,

1. Unexpected electrical shocks
2. Increased & abrupt vibration
3. Inadequate ventilation
4. Overheating

Apart from this, other factors like power cuts, manufacturing defects, and heavy computer usage can also cause mechanical failure.

Contact Us If Your Hard Drive Faces Mechanical Failure

If you think your hard drive is damaged or displaying the same indicators as mentioned above, do not try to recover the data on your own. Many of the times, retrieving the data from HDD on your own can cause mechanical failure too. And, you may not have the opportunity to recover the data from the professionals too.
Instead, get in touch with Data empires! We’ve got your back! Our team of experts will quickly diagnose the reasons behind the mechanical failure and offer a cost-effective quote and estimated time period for the data recovery.
We have skilled and experienced data recovery experts with in-depth knowledge of inspecting all the damaged components and repairing or replacing those parts. They ensure that all hard drive heads and magnetic platters do not get harmed while the repair is being done.
Once the components are repaired, our experts clone the HDD and transfer all the underdone data to a perfectly working device. After that, they convert the data stored in clone into useable files so that you can transfer the data to your device.

Be It Operating System or Storage Media We Are Experts In For Recovering The Data:

1. Hard disk drive (HDD)
2. RAID/NAS/SAN
3. External drive (HDD/SSD)
4. Mac computer
5. Microsoft windows computer
6. Desktop
7. Laptop
8. Closed security TV (CCTV)
