Common Problems

Common problems that strike Western Digital hard drives may include: clicking, ticking or clunking sounds; burnt printed circuit boards (PCB); and broken or stuck read/write heads. These are physical (hardware) problems. If you hear, see, or believe your hard drive may be experiencing any of these problems, do not power up your device– this may cause more damage and further loss of data. There are also logical (software) issues that can arise. The most frequent logical issues can occur when data is accidentally deleted from the drive or when the drive is formatted, erasing the previous contents. If you run into either of these problems, discontinue using the drive immediately. Every second your drive is in use it is reading and writing information to the platters, where all of the data is stored. The space that was once held by your now-deleted information is read by the computer as empty, thus continued use can lead to your computer saving new data to that previously occupied space and erasing your data for good.

There are tons of articles, videos, and software online that purport that they can help you get your data back without having to consult a professional. In this sense, it’s no different than experiencing a health problem and turning to the web for the best remedy. You go to a doctor when you are sick or a mechanic when your car has problems, why would you do something different when it comes to pictures and videos of your friends and family, sensitive personal information, or those files from your job that you have spent weeks working on? Instead, allow the expert engineers of Platinum Data Recovery to perform a free diagnostic and free evaluation to discern the exact problem.
