Fix External Hard Drive – External Drive Repair

A hard drive failure is an unpredictable situation, and collapse frequently causes many problems to the user. When a malfunction occurs, the external hard drive stops functioning, becomes unrecognizable, and all files become inaccessible. To get business and personal data, people need a hard drive to start working again, so there is a need for a top-level repair. 

Warning Signs that Indicate that You Should Repair External Hard Drive:

Strange Noises

Hearing strange clicking, whirring, or grinding sounds means your drive is often a sign for a read/write head crash. It can also indicate motor failure, which is often the symptom of severe data loss. So if you hear weird noises, it is essential to act very fast.

Missing Folders and Files

Detecting that files stored on your hard drives are missing and inaccessible does not mean anything good. Disappearing data is a bad sign for your external hard drive and is the prominent symptom that your device needs to be reviewed by professionals.

Unrecognized Device

If your laptop or desktop computer no longer recognizes your device, there are high chances of a problem with the drive. You can also test it on any other computer to see if your hard drive is detected. If not, then you are facing a failure.

Computer Crashes

A blue screen of death (BSoD) or sudden reboot may indicate a problem with your drive. Often computer user thinks that the problem is in the desktop or laptop, but it is not often the case, and usually, it is an external hard drive collapse.

External hard drive failure and complete data loss are complex; repairing the device requires experts. PITS Global Data Recovery Services specialists regularly attend qualification courses and obtain certificates. This way, we ensure our clients that we can work with any hard drive brand, model, and file system.

Collapse causes severe consequences, so to avoid all the issues, knowing what to do when facing common malfunction signs is necessary.

What to Do When External Hard Drive Fails

You should understand what to do next to save the device from subsequent damage. You should go through several steps to retrieve your device and most of the lost important data. 

  • When you see any collapse signs from your drive, such as weird sounds, slow performance, and overall strange performance, it is highly recommended to power down the device. After the malfunction, using the drive will damage your drive and corrupt files.
  • Many users assume replacing broken pieces or removing them will fix the drive and make it work again. Yet, it does not help, as every failed device needs an individual approach. So, do not open the external hard drive and do not try to solve the problem yourself.
  • When a hard drive collapses, all the files stored on the device are the first thing to think about. Thus, people find free data recovery software to retrieve all lost data without wasting money, time, and other resources. However, these programs do not guarantee successful results and can overwrite all your data.
  • Contact a skilled data recovery company. PITS Global Data Recovery Services achieves outstanding results by working with failed devices in specialized facilities, including ISO Certified Class 10 Cleanroom, and recovering data using the latest tools. Our team of experts has the knowledge and experience to handle all types of data loss situations, including physical damage, logical corruption, accidental deletion, and more.

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
