Getting files from inaccessible Western Digital WD5000AAVS-00N7B0
Tanja from Des Plaines, IL, decided to send her faulty Western Digital WD5000AAVS-00N7B0 hard drive to ACE Data Recovery lab when she wasn’t able to access pictures directory on her computer. As a result of a thorough examination, it was found that the data storage device had media degradation that could have been caused by drive’s age. Namely, one of the magnetic platters lost its periodicity (the quality of regular intervals). Usually, when it happens, drive becomes slow because of unsuccessful attempts to re-read the faded area. Eventually, data on the hard drive gets inaccessible.
To recover Tanja's files from her failed Western Digital WD5000AAVS-00N7B0 hard drive, ACE Data Recovery engineers tried to read the faded areas using the company’s proprietary equipment. The plan panned out and data array on the hard drive was reached. Therefore, all data was successfully recovered, copied to a brand new storage unit and sent back to Illinois.
