Causes of HDD Failure
Table of Contents

No matter what brand of hard drive you use, it is only a matter of time before you deal with its failure and data loss. It does not matter why it happens – from mechanical damage to the disk, or logical error, data recovery from hard drives, single servers, or RAID servers will always be in need.

How to Secure Hard Drive from Data Loss

It is entirely possible that your data will not be deleted or lost forever, especially if you have taken several steps ahead of time to save sensitive information.

Data is Lost due to the Following Reasons:

  • Data Corruption Due to A Virus.
  • Hard Drive Failure Due to Natural Disasters.
  • Physical Damage to The Hard Drive Caused By Being Dropped or Mishandled.
  • Accidentally Formatting The Wrong File System When Installing The OS.

Regularly Backup

Weekly on monthly, transfer all your vital documents to spare storage devices or make cloud storage backups. You should always back up essential files, but if they are stored on your primary server's site, you will have to recover lost information after a fire or flood. Keep your backups in a separate location.

Securely Shut Down Your Device

Always exit all active programs before shutting down your computer. If you turn off your computer without correctly closing active programs, the risk of losing information increases. When you leave the program precisely, first of all, essential data that you worked with before going is saved.

Use Reliable Antivirus Software

Use an antivirus, as viruses enter your computer in numerous ways. They may appear after reading an infected file attached to an email, sharing infected files online, or visiting websites that use holes in your system's security to destroy information.

Avoid Disassembling Your HDD

You should not disassemble the HDA of your hard disk drive. In the vast majority of cases, data cannot be recovered after the hard drive was opened by a user who wanted to find out "where does this strange clicking sound come from."

Consult with a Professional

Never repair a hard drive unless you have experience with such work. If you do not know how to install a hard drive or reinstall RAID, it is best to get the help of a professional instead of losing essential information.

Significance of Surge Protection

You should use surge protection on your equipment. Whether caused by the power company or lightning, a power surge remains the most common cause of data loss and possibly hard drive damage.
