How to Recover Data From Failed Hard Drives
« on: 23. February 2011., 08:23:20 »
There are two main methods of recovering data from failed hard drives.
First of all, you can run specialized data recovery software that could retrieve all of your important data files. In the majority of cases, you will be able to recover the data from your failed hard drives without too much trouble using data recovery freeware, or purchase fully supported software if you prefer.
Please note hat data recovery is not always possible if the actual problem is due to aging or faulty hard drive component such as a broken head arm. In those extra-ordinary cases you would have the hardware fixed by an expert technician before being able to access any of the precious data on the hard drive.
Additionally, there are no limitations to the different types of operating systems which you may be trying to recover data from, such as Microsoft Windows to Linux systems. This also extends to include different file formats such as FAT32 and NTFS which are very common file formats for Windows systems, or the Mac OS file system used by Apple Macs.
In the case of a RAID volume failing you would have little alternative but to send your hard drives to a data recovery expert to restore the RAID configuration as well as the data. This would also be the case if your disk partition failed and you were unable to access the data held on that particular partition or disk.
The recovery of your important data and files from failed hard drives is possible using data recovery software. If your hard drives are badly damaged, or the RAID volume-set has failed and the data on the hard disks is inaccessible, requesting professional assistance from data recovery experts would be a better option.

If your hard drive is logically damaged, there’s a chance that you can recover your data using in-computer techniques. If your drive has crashed or is corrupted, your data can become inaccessible. You can use the Disk Management utility on both Windows and Mac to fix this issue to access this data.

Follow these steps to recover your files using the Disk Management utility:

On Windows:

Press Windows + X and select the Disk Management option.
Look for the crashed hard drive in the Disk Management panel.

If the hard drive is visible, you may format it to fix any errors and make the data accessible.
⚠️ Caution! Using this method to recover a logically damaged hard drive can permanently make you lose your data. Ensure that you keep backups of your data or turn to professional data recovery software to restore your files.
On Mac:

Open Disk Utility through Spotlight (Press Command + Space).
Select the concerned disk or volume, then click First Aid.

After the First Aid runs, you’ll know if Disk Utility detected or fixed any issues.
Once the process is complete, your hard drive will be repaired and ready to go!
