 Think it might be an HDD problem?

 If you suspect you have a crashed hard drive, dead hard drive, broken hard drive, damaged hard drive, bad hdd, failing hdd, or other sort of hard drive failure, please take these steps:

  • Turn off computer and leave it off.  If you are experience hard drive problems, repeatedly turning the computer on and off can make hard drive data recovery much more difficult.
  • Avoid do-it-yourself recovery software.  Failed DIY methods can make professional data recovery impossible.
  • Please do not take your device apart.
  • Please do not use a "check disk" program - it can cause further damage.
  • Disconnect the device from the power supply and call a computer repair person to repair the computer for you.

We fix external hdd problems too!

What Causes Hard Drive Damage?

Learn causes of hard drive damage Continental Computer Services Tucson AZ

  Hard Drive damage often occurs when a hard drive overheats - particularly in a laptop.  Other typical causes of hard drive failure include:

  • device was dropped
  • power surge
  • virus
  • manufacturing defects
  • operator error 
  • accident - particularly liquid damage.

Age is another important factor in a failed hard drive.  One study shows that about 5% of all newly installed drives fail in the first 18 months of use - typically because of manufacturing defects.  Hard drive failure peaks again after 4 years in service - as we begin to see age related hard drive crash.Data Recovery Services for most brands


Did you know this about Hard Drives?


The average life of a hard drive installed in a desk top computer is about 5 years, but the highest rates of failure actually can occur in the first year of use.

In a laptop or external hard drive, the life expectancy goes down to as little as 3 years.


NOTE:  While we are glad to repair or replace hard drive for you, the most important thing you can do to protect yourself against hard drive problems is to regularly back up your data.  Call us now for help in creating a data back up system for your files.

So How Does a Hard Drive Work?

A hard disk works by storing data.  And its special skill is that it can store data even if your device is disconnected from the power source. 


Some hard drives are solid state, as in flash drives. In other hard drives, magnetic heads located on rotating disks or platters within the computer hard drive read and write your data to the drive 


Hard Working Hard Drives Fail
