Hard Disk Data Recovery


Definition of Hard Disk: Hard Drive is a storage device where you can store any types of data and file. Hard Drive is available as external and internal device. We know PC storage device as internal system Hard Disk. When you save data or install programs on your computer, the information is typically written to your Hard Disk. The Hard Disk is a spindle of magnetic disks, called platters, that record and store information. There are several interface standards for passing data between a Hard Disk and a computer. The most common are IDE and SCSI. Hard Disk is made of one or more aluminium or glass platters, coated with a ferromagnetic material. Most Hard Disks are found as Parallel ATA (PATA), Serial ATA (SATA) or SCSI device.

Difference with Floppy Drive:
The term hard is used to distinguish it from a soft, or floppy, disk. Hard Disks hold more data and also faster than floppy disks. As an example a Hard Disk can store anywhere from 10 to more than 100 gigabytes, where most floppies have a maximum storage capacity of 1.4 megabytes. Floppy is more risky device than Hard Disk for losing data.
Problem with Hard Disk:

Most common problems of Hard Disk which may arise anytime are Booting problem, OS Installation problem, Hard drive crashing and another Hard Disk not showing original space or not showing partition etc. But in every case the risk is loss of data. In some of cases formatting and reloading of Operating System can recover your Hard drive and make it useful but formatting can recover a blank Hard Disk only without data. But you have to recover Hard Disk with data, so formatting is not possible.


Data Recovery:

Data recovery is the process of retrieving back data from the damaged media. The damage of storage media can be physical damage and logical damage. The data is retrieved back by recovery experts after determining the type of the damage caused to the storage media. Most of cases data recovery is important and formatting is not possible there. So that I need to choose another way for solution of this type of problems of Hard Disk. The first and secure way to recover a Hard Disk is using data recovery software.


Recover Data from crashed Hard Disk: Power surges, Software Corruption or Malfunction, Hardware or system failure, Natural calamities, User errors may crash your Hard Drive. Data recovery software helps to retrieve or recover the data from the crashed hard Drive. Data recovery software gives an easy and Graphical User Interface with less difficulty so that the data can be recovered easily. The recovery software helps to recover the data and restore them on a second Hard Disk, the Hard Disk being connected to the computer and recognized by the BIOS, the recovered data can be stored on a safe location on the second disk.


Logical data recovery: In a data loss situation when the Hard Drive is perfectly fine and the BIOS recognizes the Hard Drive but reports a read error, logical data recovery technique is very helpful. Here the files that are damaged or corrupted by any user error or virus attack are rebuilt rather than repairing the Hard Drive.


Fragmentation: When the FAT entry is lost during accidental file deletion, formatting or partition deletion that particular block of Hard Drive becomes inaccessible. Some data recovery software makes an attempt to rebuild the files without a FAT entry. This technique is very efficient if the file size is smaller than the clusters size. But it is inefficient in recovery the larger files.


Data Recovery from deleted partition: Partition is allocation of memory in different sections. Each partition will be like separate disk drives. Partition is very use full when the user is using operating systems more than one. Usually after formatting the disk it may not be able to recognize a partition because of accidental deletion of the partition table or by virus infection. The partition is not actually deleted; it can be recovered by using recovery tools and copy the data present in the partition to the required destination. Formatting the drive erases a large amount of data present on it, but not all the data. The recovery of the data depends on the fragmentation of the file system as the parts of files are being placed on different places in the drive. The data recovery software will assume that files were not fragmented and stored in continuous clusters. If the partition was formatted using different file system, then recovery process will be very complicated.


Another Data recovery process: If you don't have any data recovery software you can try another process to recover data. Attach the Hard Drive with another system in slave or second SATA.If detect the drive then boot to the first Hard Drive and use the bad Hard Drive as secondary. Then you can copy the data from the second drive to first drive easily. Here have another process to recover data from a crashed Hard Disk. But it is so risky, and should not try to do this for an inexpert person. First pack the Hard Disk in a bag properly where moisture can't attack. Now freeze it upto get chill. After freezing quickly attach with a system in secondary, and copy the data within the Drive will come in room temperature.

So the most secure process to recover data from a Hard Disk is to use data recovery software. It is available in market.

I am using segate u series ST340810 hard disk. when I am formatting this hard disk this hard disk does not shows partition to format and shows messege of disk cannot access what should I do?


Hello Ravindr,

After connecting the Segate Hard Drive in your computer go to Control Panel. In Control Panel you will the option Administrative Tool. In Administrative Tool open the Computer Management and you will find the number of attached Hard Drive and the Partitions they have. If the Hard Drive you have attached is not showing the partition then there may some physical damage with the Hard Drive media. Please get your Hard Drive checked by Segate professionals and then replace the Hard Drive with new one.

I dropped 500gb verbatim external drive. It wants me to format the drive. How can i get the data back before i format it? Please help Thank you


Because the first few records stored on the disk-drive have been corrupted (or are physically unreadable), you get the "please format" message. Hopefully, the other 99.9 percent of the data-blocks stored on the disk-drive are OK.

Search online for 'data recovery' software -- it reads through the disk-drive, block-by-block, trying to merge blocks of data back into files that can be copied onto your 'C:' drive.

I have a new, just out-of-the-box Seagate FreeAgent/Desk 1Tb external. After hooking it up, it just flashing and thats all. The automatic software installer did not launch and the Windows Hardware...


The first thing you need to do is go into the Control Panel, then double click on Administrative Tools. After that, open up Computer Management, then go to Storage, then Disk Management. This is where you will see all of your drives listed. Be extremely careful in this section because you don’t want to screw up your main hard drive.
What you are looking for in the Disk Management area is your new hard drive. If you only have one hard drive, it should show up as Disk 0. Therefore, your new drive should most likely be Disk 1. Underneath the name Disk 1 it should say Unknown, the size of the disk, and Not Initialized. Right click in this area and you should get a pop-up window. Click Initialize Disk and it should only take a couple of seconds.
Your hard drive is now ready to be formatted.
Formatting Your Drive Once your new hard drive is initialized, you will still have to format the drive before you can use it. To format, right-click in the column to the right of the Disk 1 label and then click New Simple Volume in the menu that pops up. From here, you can allocate how much of the drive you want for a new volume, what drive letter you want to call it, give it a name, and finally format the hard disk.
Formatting the hard drive may take a while, depending on the size. My 500 gigabyte drive took nearly an hour to format, so don’t be alarmed if your's takes a while. Once the format completes, your new hard drive will now show up in My Computer and you can start putting files on

I dropped my Western digital 1TB hard drive.


The case maybe damage, so could the hard disk.
First try connecting to your computer or to an USB hard drive adapter, if it works then you know the hard drive is OK and you only need to buy a new USB hard drive adapter case.
WinHex is a edit program that allows to you see and modify the data files on the hard disk in ASCII and HEX format. If the hard disk is faulty no programs can access the data on the hard disk.
There are data recovery companies that can recover data from damages/faulty hard disk BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.
