She was using the hard drive on her laptop but accidentally tripped the wire and dropped the hard drive to the floor. Then, she tried to reconnect the hard drive to her laptop again, but the hard drive became extremely slow when she accesses the files.

Action (Solution):

After the registration of her case, we proceed to diagnose her hard drive. During the diagnosis, our recovery specialist confirmed the read/write heads of the hard drive were faulty and the clicking noise is caused by this faulty mechanical component. As a result, our recovery specialist opens the enclosure of the hard drive in the clean room to check the condition of the platter before recovery. Fortunate for her, the platters of her drive were not damaged by the faulty read/write head. Based on the condition of the hard drive, we estimated the success rate of recovery will be higher.

The Outcome

The data recovery was successful, and we manage to recover the data from her hard drive. Therefore, she was happy with the result of this outcome.



If there is a clicking noise or an abnormal noise encountered from your hard disk drive, try not to use the hard drive anymore as it might make your drive worst and data permanently loss.
