Hard drive failure and data recovery
One of the reasons hard drives are susceptible to failure is due to a head crash. This can be due to the close proximity of the heads and the disk surface. If for any reason the head starts to scrape the surface of the platter, the platter loses data due to wear on the thin magnetic film on the surface. These hard disk crashes can be caused by power failure, power surges, physical shock, electronic failure, contamination of the drives enclosure or wear and tear due to age or materials.
Quite often, if the symptoms of failure are caught early enough, data recovery will have a much greater chance of recovering the disk. If left until complete failure, the opportunity of a 100% success is less likely. Listen out for clicks or noises which you may not have heard before. Pay attention to freezes which may be caused by the disk being unable to read the data fully. System crashes are also a strong indicator of a hard drive failure.
