Hard Drive Recovery

HGST / Hitachi Data Recovery Services

Hitachi is a hard drive manufacturer which produces IDE, SATA, SCSI and SAS hard drives. The various hard drive architectures such as the Ultrastar, Deskstar and Travelstar have been popular in the enterprise as well as in Laptops and external hard drive enclosures. In 2003 Hitachi Global Storage Technologies acquired IBM’s hard drive division and merged the 2 technologies to produce what are now the modern Hitachi hard drives. On March 8th 2012, Western Digital acquired Hitachi Global Storage Technologies.

Our Data Recovery Engineers have a vast amount of experience recovering data from damaged and malfunctioning Hitachi hard drives. These drives have firmware microcode stored in a read only memory (rom) chip. In addition they store configuration data in NV-RAM and in a special repository on the hard drives platters. Specialized equipment is required to access and modify this information.

Hitachi hard drives, can suffer from damaged circuit board components, firmware and service area corruptions as well as damaged read/write heads which often cause the infamous clicking noise.

Our team has collected a large library of Hitachi hard drives as part of our inventory and are quickly able to assist with your Hitachi data recovery needs.

Samsung Data Recovery Services

Samsung is a South Korean company that had a large present in the hard drive manufacturing market until its hard drive division was acquired in 2011 by Seagate Technologies. Its most popular drive type was the SpinPoint Series, which is an architecture that still can be found in various consumer and business systems.

As all hard drives have been subject to different types of failures, Samsung hard drives have not been excluded. If your Samsung hard drive failed and is in need for data recovery, it could be due to one of the following symptoms.

If you have a Samsung hard drive that has malfunctioned and data retrieval is required, contact us immediately as our team of data recovery experts possess a very detailed understanding of the architectures and inner workings of Samsung hard drives.

Samsung SpinPoint hard drives frequently experience damage to the printed circuit board (PCB).
These drives can be very vulnerable to overheating and power surges.
They can also suffer from firmware problems. If part of firmware or service area becomes corrupted
or unreadable, the drive fails to initialize correctly and data can no longer be accessed.
An unusual clicking noise is often due to a mechanical failure of the read/write heads of the head stack assembly.
