Physical hard disk failure refers to the condition in which data stored in the system becomes inaccessible due to hard disk malfunction. A hard disk is comprised of several mechanical and electronic components. But when these components get affected due to external factors like high intensity magnetic waves, sharp impact, temperature, water or fire, they get physically failed. Also, internal issues like wear and tear, low material quality and poor composition cause hard drive failure. In such cases, Hard Disk Recovery service can come to rescue and recover all lost data.

Hard drive failure is not instant in some cases. The modern hard drives come with an advanced technology known as S.M.A.R.T. (Self Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology). It is a proactive warning system that monitors the hard drive health on the basis of certain parameters and generates reports and warning messages on finding any fault. These parameters are sometimes denoted as hard disk reliability factors, such as temperature, excessive bad sectors etc. So, if a hard drive is anticipated to fail, SMART gives error message as:

"Pri master hard disk: S.M.A.R.T. Status Bad, backup and replace"

Explanation

By master hard disk, error refers to the one, which is being primarily used by computer system to store data. The above warning suggests that users are required to immediately backup all data and replace the failing hard drive with a new one. Hard drives may go bad due to mechanical component failure, electronic faults or firmware corruption.

But in most of the cases related to physical failure, users may need to opt for Data Recovery service to recover their lost files. It can occur due to two basic reasons:

o Backup failure
o Ignoring the S.M.A.R.T error message

Hard Disk Recovery Service

It is a specialized component level service provided by recovery experts to recover data from physically failed hard drives. The processes involved in Hard Disk Recovery start with detailed analysis of the failed hard drive and chalk out suitable recovery procedures accordingly. A physically failed hard drive gets dismantled in sterile lab environments of Clean Rooms and technical procedures like repairing or replacing disk internals, disk cloning, shifting the platters etc. are applied. Data Recovery service experts can recover data in all cases of failures including those which S.M.A.R.T. can't detect.

Stellar Information Systems Limited offers industry's leading Hard Disk Recovery service through Class-100 Clean Rooms. We have been providing recovery service from more than 16 years. The advanced recovery service is provided for almost all makes and models of hard drives as SCSI, SATA, EIDE and IDE including server hard drives and SSDs (Solid State Drives).

if i have trouble like that..
I'll

Set Bios >> find S.M.A.R.T feature >> Option Disable feature...
if i have lucky, the hardisk like normal condition...

:D

if you get harddisk trouble like that, check the harddisk condition with HDD regenarator software to know whether bad sector or not.cmiiw..

may be try format with "Low Level Format"

I have actually fixed some drives by doing this . . . for some reason, there were some sectors marked as "Bad", and when there got to be too many for the "S.M.A.R.T." system, it would report that the drive was bad, when in fact, there were really no problems at all with the sectors that were reported.  Running the low level format resolved whatever issues caused the sectors to be reported as "Bad", and made the drives usable again.
