Hitachi External Drive Recovery
Hitachi specializes in all kinds of major external hard drives, including solid-state drives, hard disk drives, and RAID arrays. Trusted in over 170 countries by thousands of companies, Hitachi makes quality storage devices.
As with all external drives and NAS systems, make sure 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. If the Hitachi hard drive begins showing signs of failure, such as trouble with loading files, power the device off. It will help you save the device files that data recovery engineers will later restore.
Careful Setup to Avoid Hitachi Drive Failure
If choosing a RAID setup, Hitachi drives can be arranged in any array.
However, be careful not to arrange the drives improperly. It can cause data loss or file system errors. Unless you are a data recovery expert, 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. Make sure your NAS RAID array takes advantage of either parity or disk mirroring for data redundancy. A good NAS RAID setup has tolerance to at least one drive failure, if not more.
That way, catching the error is easier before catastrophic data loss occurs on your Hitachi external drive.
Common Causes of Hitachi External Drives Failure
If a HGST hard drive or component piece starts to fail, you can notice it by several signs. In general, keep in mind how the computer functions when operating normally.
- Is there a sudden slowdown in files loading?
- Do blue screens and erratic lag times appearing?
- Do odd grinding or whirring sounds start coming from the Hitachi external drive?
If the answer is yes, these are symptoms of the potential drive failure.
We recommend our customers running regular maintenance to avoid these common symptoms and pitfalls.
Aside from symptoms, it is also important to note the causes of Hitachi external drive data loss.
Common causes of Driver Failure & Data Loss Situations include:
- Overheating (due to cramped space)
- Water damage
- Physical breakage
- Infected file system/malware
- An improperly Arranged RAID system
- Natural wear-and-tear/machine degradation
- Firmware/Controller failure
- Power surges or Outages
Pro-tip: use surge protectors to protect against power surges and outages, which can be very damaging for Hitachi external drives.
