The hard drive is the most imperative apparatus behind the mass acknowledgment of PCs in the home and work environment. Its’s storage capacity has expanded hugely since the beginning of the innovation, and will probably keep on increasing later as the hard drive's expenditure per megabyte of storage equally drops fast.
Hard drives fail very often with no notice at all. With so much of cases of hard drive failure I have learned that in order to sustain your data, keeping its backup is very important. There are many reasons for hard drive failure. So here in this blog post, I am sharing some of the most common cases of dead hard drives and how you can judge that your hard drive is no longer active now. Let’s begin with the root causes of its failure.
What are the chances of its failure?
One moment you see that your PC is working fine, the another moment you have a "blue screen of death" resulting data gone. Try not to depend on warning signs rather start taking backup of your crucial documents.
These warnings are divided into two categories: Sounds and performance Obstacles:
If you regularly sit near your PC, then possibly you are familiar with the standard sounds it makes. In the event that you hear the hard drive is making any unusual noises, that is most likely an intimation that something is turning out badly. Oppressive or screaming noises might be of the spindle motor failing and a clicking noise is the indication of internal damage.
Performance issues include a sudden rise in the frequency of crashes. Obviously, such issues can be a symbolic of any number of PC maladies - viruses to memory leaks to non-drive associated hardware breakdowns.
Sometimes you come up with the issue of “Drive Not Recognized”. It could be anything:
· Partition issues on external hard drive
· Wrong file system
· USB ports are dead
Or it could be that your drive is completely dead. To make it recognized by PC, firstly try to use USB port other than the one you are using. If it works on another port, then probably your USB port is dead. Afterward, if still the drive does not show up in disk management then it is difficult to calculate whether the drive is bad or your PC is having any issue. Try to connect drive to another PC and check whether drive is recognized there or not. If yes, then your PC is having problems and if not then surely it is the right time to replace your drive.
Screw your Cable Connections, PCB
There also exists one case when you suspect that the hard drive is failed but actually it is not. It is a case when you need to check the cable connections of drive and motherboard. See whether your data and power cables are connected well or not.
Your drive might get harmed internally or externally. If you notice that your external PCB is damaged, then replacing a PCB board without precautions can even take all your data. Do research on PCB before doing any experiment. Even if you don’t want to take any professional help there are numerous of websites that guide to find the correct circuit board. If you are lucky enough then by you own you can save all your data and money.
