What not to Do when WD External Hard Drive Fails
Western Digital external hard drive failure lead to many complications. To avoid issues caused by malfunction, people try to solve the problem themselves. Still, when trying to fix the device, users make many mistakes that can cause complete data loss.
There are several actions to be performed to save most of your files.
- As soon as you notice any of the failure signs – slow performance, strange noises, and unusual behavior – power down your device. Disconnecting the failed storage device will prevent subsequent damage by the broken parts inside the media. So turning off the device is one of the most critical steps after the failure occurs.
- It is also important not to open the drive in unspecialized facilities. By opening the device, you will not find out what is wrong. So we recommend not to put the failed device at risk just because of curiosity.
- Do not download and install data recovery software on a failed device. There are many file restoration tools on the Internet, but they do not guarantee successful results. Moreover, these apps can insert a virus into the drive and make lost data unrecoverable.
- When a failure occurs, entrust collapsed drive to the professionals. If your storage device has valuable images, videos, and documents, it is better not to take risks. Contact a professional data recovery company with years of experience for the best outcome possible.
- Collect as much information about the failure as it is possible. Recording unusual sounds and writing popping up error messages will make it easier for specialists to estimate the cause of failure. These actions will sufficiently speed up the recovery process.
By going through these steps, you will increase the chances of a successful restoration of lost data. And with our team of highly-skilled engineers, we will safely and efficiently recover files from failed WD external hard drives and any other storage devices.
