Hard disk drives have a limited lifespan and when they fail a software recovery process may find your files but will rarely render the hard drive serviceable. In these circumstances, software applications, operating systems and storage data are likely to be affected and ultimately your data will have to be recovered to new disks.  If you are operating legacy or specialist equipment and require a healthy hard drive to reinsert into your system, the best option may be a repair to the faulty drive.


Proprietary and legacy systems are notoriously difficult when it comes to data recovery. Even if the data can be recovered, it’s worthless without the system files. Often these systems rely on a specific hard drive model and/or unavailable drive software. When this is the case, the only option is to repair and rebuild the faulty hard drive, so it can be reinserted into the system with its original data.

There are many components that can fail on a hard disk, including read/write heads, printed circuit boards (PCB), spindle motors, platters and firmware.

Hard drive failures are not always mechanical though. Logical corruption and firmware failures can render disks useless. Often a combination of the two will exacerbate the problem.
