As the quantity of external hard drives being used by both consumers and commercial entities have drastically increases over the past years so have the fatalities of external hard drives. We know encounter more failed external hard drives in our data recovery lab that internal desktop or laptop drives.
Often times these drives suffer from shock after being dropped or accidentally bumped while powered on and connected to the USB port. We also find that often times these drives just simply overheat due to insufficient cooling based on the small form factor design of the external drive enclosure, causing the drive to ultimately fail.
Our data recovery engineers are experts that have vast experience when it comes to recovering data from external hard drives. We have encountered drives that have suffered from water damage, stepped on, and even a case where a large truck ran over an external Lacie hard drive that was successfully recovered by our data recovery team.
We frequently recover data from hundreds of external hard disk drives including drives from brands like Seagate, Maxtor, Fujitsu, Western Digital, Iomega, Dell, Lacie and including other popular external hard drives. If your external hard drive is suffering from a malfunction, please unplug the USB/Thunderbolt cable and power cord (power on 3.5 inch factors only) immediately to prevent further damage and call the experts at Data Analyzers to reduce the risk of platter damage and increase the chance of a successful recovery. Our engineers are familiar with the various factors that can affect the recovery process on these devices.
Data Analyzers Data Recovery also offers emergency services for external hard drives usually completed within a single business day.
When data loss happen most of us will try an online utility or take Portable/External Hard Drive to nearby repair shop but be careful since in most cases that can lead to permanent data loss. Note: DIY data recovery attempts more often create more damage or produce no results leaving no chance for a recovery.
The cost of recovery will depend on the issues our engineers find during the free analysis. The typical hard drive recovery range is from $200-$1000.
We frequently recover data successfully from Western Digital MyBook, Western Digital Passport (Pro), Western Digital Elements, WD Wireless SSD, Seagate GoFlex, Seagate Backup Plus, LaCie Rugged, Lacie Mobile, Samsung Portable, Buffalo MiniStation, Toshiba Canvio and other popular external hard drives.
The average turnaround time for a data recovery case is 3-5 business days. Less severe cases could take longer while more severe cases like hard drives with platter damage could take longer. Emergency services are provided if the case is time sensitive.
