Laptop Hard Drive Data Recovery

Laptops and notebook computers take a lot of abuse, and with today's mobile technology, more and more critical data is being stored on these devices every day. Because they are often carried about and exposed to different environmental factors such as heat, water and dust, laptops and notebook computers are far more susceptible to data loss and became a subject for data recovery than their desktop counterparts. Their portability makes these sophisticated and essential in-the-field mobile devices prime candidates for data loss. At the same time as an increasing amount of data is being saved, these devices are still the least frequently backed-up.

Laptop Data Recovery ServicesMany high-end or hardened laptop computers have motion sensing protection. This protection is designed to temporarily stop or park the heads to prevent damage. Active hard drive protection refers to technology that attempts to avoid or reduce mechanical damage to laptop disk drives by preparing the disk(s) prior to impact. With a triaxial accelerometer, the system detects sudden acceleration, such as when the computer is dropped, and prepares the relatively fragile hard disk drive mechanism for impact. The system disengages the disk drive heads from the hard disk platters, preventing data loss and drive damage from a disk head crash. When the computer is stable, the drive operates normally again.

Several laptop vendors have implemented this technology under different names:

  • HDAPS - Hard Drive Active Protection System, by Lenovo
  • Sudden Motion Sensor by Apple Inc.
  • GraviSense by Acer
  • HP Mobile Data Protection System 3D and ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection by HP
  • Free Fall Sensor (FFS) by Dell
  • HDD Protection by Toshiba

Some hard drive manufacturers also include this technology, needing no cooperation from the computer itself:

  • ShockGuard by Western Digital
  • G-Force Protection by Seagate Technology

But unfortunately, none of these methods are a 100% guarantee of protection.

The magnetic plates in every hard drive are very precisely polished. So much so, that when you press two platters together, you would not be able to disconnect them simply by pulling in different directions. The molecular attraction is strong enough, that a grown man could separate the platters only by sliding them apart.

When a mechanical shock happens, hard drives may experience damage caused by the read/write heads dropping down onto the moving platters. Normally these heads float on a thin layer of air over the spinning platters, but if a shock happens and the two do come in direct contact, the heads can literally become "glued" to the plates. When this does happen, the heads can only be "unglued" from the plates by a trained engineer using special equipment.

Professional Laptop Hard Drive Data Recovery

laptop hard drive data recovery Laptop/notebook hard drives endure different abuse elements as compared to your standard 3.5" desktop hard drive. Although similar in design architecture, laptop drives are smaller than desktop drives. The micro environment of these laptop drives makes the data recovery a delicate task, requiring not only specialized data recovery knowledge but also specifically designed tools. With components ever so delicate and precise, these are added difficulty factors for data recovery engineers to face.
