Data recovery from damaged hard drives is a complex process that usually takes time and needs resources to complete it successfully. We partner with HDD manufacturers to improve our data recovery capabilities. Generally speaking, our specialists need to “repair” a hard drive and make it stable first to be able to retrieve any data from it. Therefore, hard drive recovery involves replacing failed components such as read/write head assemblies, logic control components, or drive motors in a clean room environment.

Hard Disk Drive Data Recovery - Different Systems, Different Techniques

Hard drives with different architectures can be similar, but each type also has its own "favorite" failures and different techniques to handle:

Desktop Hard Drive Recovery

Desktop hard drives are generally larger and more robustly constructed than laptop or portable hard drives. This can make them more resilient to certain types of damage but also means they may require more specialized tools or techniques for physical repairs.

Laptop Hard Drive Recovery

Laptops are portable and often exposed to more physical risks such as drops, spills, or overheating. Also this drives are designed for efficiency and may use less power than larger desktop or external drives. This can impact the types of failures they experience.

External Hard Drive Recovery

External hard drives connect to a computer via USB or another type of external interface. It can lead to a different set of issues, such as physical damage from being dropped or knocked, and introduce additional points of failure, such as damage to the connector.

Server Hard Drive Recovery

Enterprise hard drives are often used in servers or data centers where they are part of a larger system such as a RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) configuration. This can make the recovery process more complex as data is distributed across multiple drives.

Retrieving Data from Physically Damaged Hard Disk Drives

If a hard disk is inaccessible, we first test the components and closely examine drive platters to determine the extent of physical damage. These steps enable us to layout a course of action for each individual drive.

External hard drive Recovery services ACE Data Recovery engineers perform free evaluation and all hard drive recovery procedures in our Class 100 Clean Rooms. They are designed to maintain exceptional air purity, containing less than 100 airborne particles larger than 0.5 microns in each cubic foot of air. Such an environment is vital for protecting the sensitive internal components of hard drives.

We follow only non-destructive hard drive data recovery processes that include drive sectors cloning. This means that we’ll pull data from your drive on a sector by sector basis and work directly on the clone. This procedure ensures that the drive is not damaged any further and that a second image of the original structure can be acquired if needed.

Inaccessible data might be experiencing logical and/or physical hard drives failures. The process of getting data back from a logically damaged file system requires the use of data recovery software. Our Research & Development team has developed its own software to salvage our clients’ data. No special physical equipment or environment is required in such situations.

Our team performs HDD data recovery from all operating systems including:

  • Windows (any flavor!)
  • Any Apple MAC OS
  • Linux
  • DOS
  • UNIX (selected families)
  • VMware
  • Novell
  • And more!

After that our engineers will recover your data by using highly sophisticated techniques and proprietary equipment and software. The average time for completing hard disk recovery is 3-5 Business Days. After we validate the data, we’ll place it on a free suitable return media, whether it is another hard drive, flash drive, or your own storage device.
