Irvine, CA based Hard Drive Recovery Associates (HDRA) would like to announce the launch of a new blog post titled ‘Fact: Hard Drives Fail And Here Are The Reasons Why.’ The new post discusses the many reasons for hard drive failure and how to handle each individual situation. It also shares advice that may help readers completely avoid the risk of hard drive failure. Hard Drive Recovery Associates has a number of experts who possess a considerable amount of knowledge on any and every aspect of hard drives. The data recovery expert is widely respected for the expertise of their technicians and has appeared in recent news in the tech industry.
“It’s, undoubtedly, convenient to have an external hard drive,” says the blog post. “You can take them with you anywhere you go. You don’t even have to take your computer with you. All you need is your external hard drive to keep your files. Unfortunately, the portability of an external hard drive is what makes it fail as well.”
Almost everyone who owns an external hard drive has dropped it at some point. One may have even dropped it multiple times, being lucky enough every single time that the drive does not sustain any serious damage. Eventually, however, the constant dropping an external hard drive is almost guaranteed to be subject to begins to take its toll and the drive may end up seriously damaged, leaving the owner without access to some very important files. As stated in the blog post, “Who hasn’t dropped an external hard drive? You’ve probably done so several times. You see, it’s this portability that exposes it to danger. Sure, you can be careful, but only to a certain extent.”
Hard drives are known to fail and often do so as a result of damage to recording surfaces caused by physical shock which, in other words, means being dropped over and over by the owner, no matter how careful they are. One might choose to leave their Hard Drive in a safe place fearing failure due to damage but this may also lead to hard drive failure. Eleven percent of hard drive failures are a result of stuck read/write head armatures. Drives left idle for a long period of time may eventually fail as a result of its moving parts getting stuck due to simply not moving. This puts hard drive owners in a somewhat difficult position as they have to keep their hard drive safe from potential harm while also ensuring that it remains active to avoid malfunction due to prolonged inactivity.
One can take precautions to reduce the chances of their hard drive breaking, however. Handling hard drives carefully, keeping multiple copies of the data stored on the hard drive or using erasure coding to mitigate data corruption are all steps one can take to reduce the chances of one’s drive failing or at least reducing the negative consequences of a failing drive. In case it does fail, however, it may be time to contact a nearby data recovery expert.
