PITS Global Data Recovery Services offers Maxtor hard drive users reliable file recovery solutions in case of malfunction. Our engineers have years of experience dealing with various failure scenarios and data loss situations on these devices.

Causes of Maxtor Hard Drive Failures

The Maxtor Corporation was established in 1982 and quickly became a well-known company throughout the US. At that time, Maxtor was the third-largest hard drive manufacturer in the world. Their hard drives are widely known for their excellent performance and were later famous in the server market.

In 2006, Seagate Technologies purchased Maxtor. Maxtor hard drives may not be produced anymore, but that does not mean there is no longer a need to recover this device model. 

Bad Sectors

Over time, traditional hard drives lose their ability to read data from the platters. Data degradation often affects individual or groups of sectors, causing significant issues for hard drive users. The drive is usually able to remap the bad sectors and replace them. However, bad sectors may become a more evident problem, and it can be very complicated to retrieve all of your data. In this situation, PITS Global Data Recovery Services can help.

Mechanical Failures

Like other hard disk drives, Maxtor storage devices can suffer at the hands of failure due to the internal moving parts. HDD failures usually occur due to malfunctions in the read-write heads or motor spindle assembly. These failures are noticeable as the hard drive will make clicking, screeching, beeping, or grinding noises. If you notice any of these signs, it is essential to power down the device and contact professionals.

Corruption of the Firmware

Firmware is the code that manages the initialization, defect handling, and communication of the Maxtor hard drive with computers or external devices. When a device's firmware is corrupted, it can no longer function as data storage. After the malfunction, every attempt to access the drive and its files will result in an error. Firmware corruption causes complete data loss, so a need for professional data recovery occurs.

PITS Global Data Recovery Services are ready to help in the abovementioned cases and any other failures. Our engineers use state-of-the-art hardware and advanced techniques to recover the data stored on the failed Maxtor hard disk drive.

To be honest, I am super happy and satisfied with the delivered service by PITS Global. I have met so many people and read reviews of many others with their amazing experience at PITS. Firstly, I had ... a nice chat with my account manager, John, before shipping them the device. He even sent me a prepaid shipping label for my 4TB WD blue HDD)) Happy to say, I shipped then the device very next day and waited for ny evaluation results. So after 3 days, they sent me an email with the quote and a whole explanation of my hdd’s problem, so I can have a better understanding of their service. The pricing was fair and I decided to move with the standard procedure. Fast forward, after couple days, I got a call from Filip for the verification session. The final results were not what I expected because PITS could get ALL of my data without a missing file. These folks are the real professionals in their field and I am super blessed that I had a chance to work with them. High five for excellent results!)

Huge thanks to Eric and all of the engineers that work at PITS. These guys could recover 2TB of my data from corrupted Seagate HDD. Before shipping them my device, I had a talk with many other ... companies but the PITS grabbed my attention, so we moved forward with them. They truly ARE the professionals!

I have been using my brother's 2TB WD HDD for a while but last month when It was connected to my laptop, we had a power surge which affected the device. I knew that he will be furious if he finds out, ... so I needed to move quick. A whilee ago, I already had a talk with PITS but never used them, so I believe this was the time. I explained them the situation, shipped the device, approved the recovery process and just waited, just waited.....But thankfully within only few days, Filip called me that they recovered everything, so it's time for a verification session. I jumped on my computer, had to see all of the files like nothing happened to the drive and approved the same second. Thanks to PITS, my brother never found out, so I am incredibly thankful for the job they have done

During a routine system update, our office’s 24TB RAID 6 array with operational data experienced a catastrophic failure. Thankfully, PITS Global Data Recovery in Los Angeles was recommended by a ... fellow technician. We had a good talk with Eric and moved forward to the recovery process after receiving our evaluation results. I personally was in constant in touch with them because of my stressful situation but they were incredibly professional and never let me down during any of our calls. I am putting 5 stars for their communication and another 5 stars for the successful recovery of the data. Losing this data could have definitely disrupted our tech startup's operations for months
