Why Disk Fragments a problem?

Any storage action on the magnetic disk like creating, deleting, moving, updating and copying files will lead to fragmentation and consequent performance loss. As time goes by, this accumulation of fragments on your hard disk becomes bigger and bigger. As the hard disk reads and merges these separate fragments every time you open a file, they will eventually cause problems such as system slowdowns, PC crashes, slow startup and shutdown, and will even shorten the life span of your hard drive. That is why defragmentation is so important for your entire computer system.



Advanced Defrag – The better and easier defrag solution!

You may find various defrag programs in the market, they may look the same, but many of them lack of ability to
effectively defrag all the MFT (Master File Table), they will automatically skip certain system files with extensions
such as DLL, INI, COM etc during the defragment thus left remnant fragments after each defragment action, it can
also easily get halted while defragging which is very user-unfriendly.


Advanced Defrag rectified all the cons above from these defragmenters, and the efficiency is even better. Its advanced
defragment arithmetic not only enables you to fast defrag, but also defrag completely and thoroughly. If you would
like to give your PC hard disk a completely care and experience the most efficient defrag technology, Advanced
Defrag is the perfect choice for you.



How it works?

Your hard disk controls a magnetic head which searches the areas where the parts of the required file are located,
reads the data and transfers these fragments to the disk cache or EMS memory. The time this takes is called the
average seek time. The average seek time of most hard drives is less than 9.5 millisecond. The Advanced Defrag
program is able to collect the various fragments of each file and store them very quickly into contiguous space on
the hard disk which greatly reduces the seek time of the magnetic head. Better file reading and writing speed is
provided as a result. It does make a difference if you have got used to work and play with a fast and smooth system.
It also helps to prevent premature hard drive problems and retrieve the data in the event of a drive crash.

Take it to a tech shop they will do a recovery of the HDD that's the only option...no software or utility can do it...as it wont be able to read it...

the other option is to install a new HD and make that the boot disk...re-install OS in that new HD and then connect the old HDD and check if that can be accessd...then recover from there to the new HD..

do u have a Desktop or a laptop...?

You need to hook your drive into another computer and use a hard drive recovery tool to get all your data. You can find many recovery tools in the internet.

My lappy hard disk is giving status that hard disk failure try to install in other location. then i connected it to my pc to take backup


Not sure I understand your Question... or maybe you are making a statement? But, it sounds like your hard drive (HD) is dead, no good , non useable... So what are your options? Purchase another hard drive, you should have received system backup disk or install disk with your laptop , you can use them to reinstall the operating system (OS) Windows on the new hard drive. There is a slight possibility you could try them (the install disk) to re-install your OS on your original HD, but again it sounds like your HD is dead.

If you have never made a back up of you hard Drive, then all your data (pic, documents, game, contacts) are lost. The problem most people don't understand is if the hard drive crashes for physical reasons, the spring breaks inside, or a diode burns out, then the data on the disk are lost.

You may also take your laptop to a computer repair shop near you and they can tell you more about your options.

Crashed external HDD Verbatim


Hard drives are easily damaged by dropping them.
When a hard disk makes a clicking sound and the computer does not detect it then the hard disk is faulty. This is commonly known as "The click of death".
There is no way of fixing this hard drive, if you need to recover your data, then there are companies that can recover data off faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

Don't be panic. you can try some data recovery software. You can see
http://www.asoftech.com/adr/
It tells the steps how to perform data recovery.

If above does not work, you may have to format the hard drive (use quick format), and then use above mentioned software to scan again the hard drive and recover your files.

The WDXU800BBRNN hard drive clicks about 15 seconds when plugged into a computer and is not recognized by the computer. This is a Western Digital 80 GB external hard drive.


Sounds like either the drive was accidently dropped while running and is damaged, has damaged circuitry, the hard drive has otherwise crashed, ...best case scenario, is that you have it plugged into a USB port that it doesn't 'like'. Try unplugging and plugging into another USB port on the computer and see if your problem goes away.
Best of luck! Hope this helps!

HI please I really need help! I was using my LaCie hard disk one day and then the HD started doing a weird sound (tick-tick). Now every time the pc is on and i plug in the hard disk it does the ticking...


Hello,
your drive suffered a head crash and the only way to get the data from it now is with a Data recovery center. If you do not need the data and your drive is under warranty, contact LaCie to get a replacement.

Weird noises, not recognized by laptop


Hi,

This is a common problem with hard drives. Most hard drives (whether external or internal) that produces a "weird clicking noises" indicates a mechanical problem. Often this is the head arm trying to move from its position but failing to do so. What you are hearing as "weird clicking noises" are when it slaps back to its park position or when trying to move into correct position.

Should this be the case, am afraid that the HD is a goner. The normal course of action is to replace. If the data inside are mission critical, your only course of action is to avail of those data recovery by firm specializing in such but they are rather expensive.

Trying to use "data recovery software" might prove to be futile since as earlier stated, the problem is mechanical in nature.

You can of course still give it a try.

Should you feel adventurous, would be willing to experiment and gamble, pls post back as I may have not a permanent solution but a "down & dirty" trick of making it run long enough hopefully to get some of your data back. Again, this is a "hit or miss" and should only be considered if all else fails and you really want to get your files back.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Hard drive crash


Your hard drive has crashed but here is what you can probably try. Take off the hard drive. Put it into another system (a friend's computer or something) as secondary drive. See if it gets detected in the BIOS. If it does, you can try and run a application like Recover my files to try and salvage your data. Hope this helps.
