Common Problems

Seagate Technology hard drives are not immune to problems, including failure of the printed circuit board (PCB), a break in the reader-head mechanism, and problems with the structure. Broken or stuck reader-heads are especially problematic, as they can cause physical damage to the hard drive platters, where the data is stored. The platters of a hard drive are so sensitive, in fact, that they must only be opened in an ISO 5 Class 100 and above clean rooms to prevent further harm. Failures of the PCB will most often prevent the hard drive from even spinning up. However, several of the Seagate hard drives have their encryption built into the printed circuit board, making the replacement of one a complicated task. Breakdowns in the structure of the drive can cause files to be corrupted or incomplete. This problem requires a logical solution to repair the broken structure and reassemble the damaged files.

Seagate Data Recovery

You may lose data from your Seagate hard drive and other media devices due to several reasons. But even if you’ve lost your data due to accidental deletion or formatting, the files are still somewhere on your Seagate external hard disk. There is a chance of recovering your data since when you delete files or format the device, the space that the files occupy is only marked as “available to reuse”. Although you can’t access, edit, copy or read the deleted data, it’s still possible to get it back. However, to recover your Seagate deleted data, you need to stop saving new data onto your disk. Overwriting new data makes data recovering more complicated or even impossible. Seagate offers recovery software but often users fail to retrieve their lost documents. And when this happens, we come to their rescue.

Seagate is the biggest supplier of digital data storage in the world. It is popular for producing external hard drives that are of high quality and high capacity. Seagate devices are used by numerous companies and individuals to store data. Seagate storage devices are popular but users can’t avoid a data loss disaster. At Platinum Data Recovery, we offer the best possible solutions to recover your data from Seagate hard drives and other storage media. With years of experience in data recovery, we have become competent to retrieve lost data successfully from all Seagate storage devices – Categories and Models.

Seagate Data Recovery FAQs

Can you recover data from my Seagate hard drive that was accidentally formatted?
Yes, our data recovery experts can recover data from a hard drive that was formatted, erased, and even re-partitioned! Our team has years of experience to recover data from all types of hard drives. We have a state-of-the-art laboratory to recover terabytes of critical data.

What is the difference between physical damage and logical error?
The cause of data loss is categorized into logical vs. physical damage. By determining the cause of data loss it becomes easier to figure out which solutions may be required for successful data recovery. Data stored on a device may get corrupted due to logical error as a result of power outages, malicious viruses, system crashes, or user error. These issues result in making data stored on drive inaccessible. Physical damage, on the other hand, is caused due to mechanical failures like a head crash, faulty circuit boards (PCBs), failed motors, or dropping the drive.

Why is an ISO 5 Class 100 Cleanroom required for Data Recovery?
Storage devices are delicate and require a certified cleanroom to minimize the chances of further damage. An ISO 5 Class 100 cleanroom is a special environment that is free from dust and other contamination. All hard drive manufacturers recommend this environment for performing data recovery operations. It is even more important for data recovery operations that require opening the hard drive. At Platinum Data Recovery, we have certified ISO 5 Class 100 cleanroom labs, world-class tools, and qualified engineers to safely recover your inaccessible data from all kind of NAS Servers, HDD, SSD, RAID, and more.
