Buffalo Data Recovery


Buffalo Inc. was originally founded as an audio equipment producer in 1981. It is now a North American subsidiary of Melco Holdings Incorporated, based in Japan. Melco was founded in 1986, and produced RAM and flash memory products. Buffalo now produces NAS, desktop and portable storage devices, and was one of the first companies to incorporate USB 3.0 in their products. They have won a plethora of awards since 2004 from CNET, Tech Living, CRN, G4, and many others. In order to keep up with the market, they have also begun to incorporate Thunderbolt technology into their drives.

 Common Problems

Common issues that may occur with Buffalo Products are clicking or ticking noises, burnt PCB (Printed Circuit Board), and broken or stuck read/write heads. They are physical issues and if you feel as though your hard drive is making any unusual noise, turn off the device immediately. Continue to run the device could cause further damage and may result in permanent data loss. The drives can be prone to logical failures as well, acquiring viruses and malware or accidentally deleted files/reformatting.
