PITS Global Data Recovery Services can recover your data from any failed device, including all Hitachi models available on the market. We provide hard drive, solid-state drive and RAID repair services for businesses and individuals.

Hitachi External Drive Recovery

Hitachi specializes in all kinds of hard drives, including solid-state drives, hard disk drives, and external hard drives. Trusted in over 170 countries by thousands of companies, Hitachi makes top-level storage devices. As with all drives and NAS systems, ensure your system gets regular maintenance and monthly password changes. That will ensure maximum fault tolerance and security for your device.

Recovering data from Hitachi devices is a very delicate process. The chances of drive data recovery go down with each unsuccessful attempt. Power the device off if the Hitachi hard drive shows signs of failure, such as trouble loading files. It will help you save the device files that data recovery engineers will later restore.

Setup to Avoid Hitachi Drive Failure

Hitachi drives can be arranged in any array if choosing a RAID setup. However, be careful not to arrange the drives improperly. It can cause data loss or file system errors. It is essential to be careful with setting up and powering on a new RAID array.

Our specialists recommend RAID 6 for best performance balanced with reliable fault tolerance. Ensure your NAS RAID array takes advantage of either parity or disk mirroring for data redundancy. Check the compatibility of your Hitachi drives with your chosen RAID controller, as using mismatched components can lead to performance issues and even drive failure.

A good NAS RAID setup has tolerance to at least one drive failure, if not more. That way, catching errors is easier before catastrophic data loss occurs on your Hitachi external drive.

PITS is truly professional in data recovery. Six months ago, I dropped my 2 TB external hard drive, and it stopped showing up on my computer. It has been an awful experience for me, as whoever I ... approached, no one could recover the data from it. Thankfully, I found PITS Global, and they started the recovery process immediately. John and Eric were always in touch, providing updates regarding my case. In the final results, I had my verification session, and everything was there. I could see all of my photos, videos, and files. I am super grateful and happy with the results.

PITS Global Data Recovery Services lived up to their reputation. I entrusted them with recovering data from my damaged SanDisk USB drive, and they exceeded my expectations. They kept me informed about ... every step of the process, and I never felt in the dark about the status of my data. From the moment I contacted them to the final verification session, their focus on customer satisfaction was evident. Eric addressed all my concerns and went the extra mile. I got all my data back, and from now on, PITS is my go-to recommendation for anyone facing data loss challenges.

I had been searching for a data recovery company for a while and finally found PITS. With many positive reviews, I decided to choose them. My 5TB Hard Drive contained crucial business and governmental ... documents. After talking to PITS, I understood that this was the right place and they could recover all of my data. As expected, within only a few days, I was looking at documents that I couldn't access before through their verification session. They were fast, reliable, and, most importantly, got me all my data back

I was really worried when my external drive with important work files got messed up. I contacted PITS Global for help. Even though I had lots of files, John and the team understood how urgent it was. ... In just a few days, they showed me all my files, and I was shocked since they got everything back! Hundreds of my Excel, Word, and PowerPoint files were there and I could check each of the file during the verification session. Afterwards they transferred everything to a brand new 4TB external drive, so I can have an easy access to all of the data. Received the drive yesterday and am super happy with PITS. They did a fantastic job

I've been using my 1TB SD card since I started taking photos as a hobby. By now, I've collected over ten thousand photos of my journeys. Everything seemed fine with the card until my computer stopped ... recognizing it, which was weird because it was never an issue to begin with. In regards to that, I immediately sent it to PITS since they have successfully recovered my drives previously. Eric quickly opened a case for me, and we started the recovery process. Within a week, I got all my photos back, and I didn't expect anything less from them since these guys are the best in their field. Communication was on point, service was fast, and most importantly, I got all my data back
