When the Hard Disk stops functioning properly is referred as Hard Disk failure. This is the most occurring event responsible for data loss which accounts about 44% of total data loss. Hard disk is more prone to damage and corruption as compare to other storage mediums. There may be several reasons for the same:

1. Electronic Failure:  The problems related to controller boards arising due to sudden power spike or electrical surge that makes it undetectable by the operating system. This can happen to any operating system anytime.


2. MECHANICAL FAILURE: These failures happen due to some internal factors of hard disk. When we turn on the system a ticking sound appears and hence can be detected. These are the malfunctioning that can’t be cured by any kind of software but has to be repaired by fetching to a service center.


3. LOGICAL ERRORS:  These are the errors which are not related to physical malfunctioning of hard disk but related to corruption of data or invalid entry to a file system.


When any of the above mentioned incidence happen, our saved data is at the point of loss or simply data loss. At this point of time your hard disk nay stop running or you mat get an error message or you access to the required information gets denied.


There may be several reasons behind this temperature rise in hard disk, invalid data formatting, dust particles entered to the hard disk which could cause a severe damage to your hard disk.



To prevent data from loss there exist several methods by which data can be prevented from loss

1. Giving your system a dust free and dry environment.

2. Use of UPS  to ensure uninterrupted supply of power.

3. Keeping you system in a jerk free environment.



If after adopting above mentioned precautions also data loss happens then there is nothing to be worry about. For even the most critical cases where all data recovery techniques fails data mining comes into action which in independent of all operating systems or file systems. This technique can recover data from completely damaged or erased files too.




This method is completely based on investigating internal factors such as length of the file, structure, format of file etc. Here each sector of the media is searched and investigated and ultimately stored on new file or folders.

One of the main plus point of this technique is that it can search and recover data when its information is not even present on file systems.


So data recovery becomes possible through it easily. Stellar data recovery services follow the same and help you to get out from data loss. All you have to do is to fetch it here to ensure an effective data recovery from even completely damaged hard disks
