Plymouth Data Recovery specialises in recovering data from a wide range of devices capable of storing data. We recover data from PCs, External HDDs, Laptops, RAID setups and a whole host of removable storage devices. We have 15+ years experience in the field of data recovery and carry out 1000s of recoveries annually.
When it comes to recovering the data from failed RAID Systems as well as other computer types, our experience is unparalleled. We recover data from failed RAID 0, RAID 1, and RAID 5 systems no matter the configuration or manufacture. We also recover data that has been rendered inaccessible as the result of rebuild failures.
Physical failures occur when parts contained within the hard drive no longer function properly. This may be the result of heavy duty usage, perhaps a fault in a component used, or because of an outside force at work such as a knock or bump. We can all be prone to accidents and accidents happen around computers. Drinks are spilled, unforeseen knocks can occur, and even just leaving a computer switched on for overly long periods of time may lead to a hard drives premature demise.
We all know that hard disk drives may fail for a variety of reasons and may fail if there are bad sectors on them. Sometimes these bad sectors can be found on partitions of the drive that allow the operating system to start up and run. If these bad sectors occur throughout the partition where the operating system is stored then it might well be the case that the operating system cannot cope and therefore freezes.
