A hard disk is said to be failed when you are not able to access data on accurately configured computer. This problem may occur when hard drive faces malfunction related issues. Even though your hard drive was functioning properly without any performance related issues, at some point of time, your hard drive may fail due to various common reasons. Hard disk drive failure is a disastrous and steady process. You cannot easily identify steady process of hard drive failure as you may think that your facing general hard drive slow down problems due to some reasons.

How to determine a hard drive failure?

If suddenly your computer is no longer working then you have to check all your hardware that are jet plugged with your motherboard which also includes your hard drive. To test your internal hard drive, you can follow these two procedures:

  • Process 1: Remove your hard drive from your PC and now try to test it with any other system if it's not working and not showing in that System then it's clear that it is no longer working.
  • Process 2: Use a live disk or live flash drive with portable Operating System to boot your PC and then check whether your internal hard disk is showing or not. If it is not showing then you have to think about failed hard drive recovery process.

Symptoms of hard disk failure:

  • Slowing down the speed of your PC performance
  • Computer freezing frequently now and then
  • Unexpected noise coming while the hard disk is rotating
  • PC getting over heated than normal
  • Increasing bad sectors showing in disk check
  • Frequent Blue Screen of Death messages

Reasons behind Hard Disk Failure

There are two types of reasons behind hard disk failure: one is logical and the other one is mechanical.

  • Mechanical Reason: Mechanical reason directly implies that your hard disk has broken parts due to its head on injury or due to overheating of hard disk drive. In such a case, data recovery is a very hard thing to do.
  • Logical Reason: If there is no sign of any physical damage on your hard disk drive then it might just encountered with a logical failure. The hard disk failure is either due to accidental formatting or due to a corrupt file system due to which the drive is no longer able to navigate its own data.

However it is not easy to resolve a mechanical issue by own, and in such case, you need to visit a service center for failed HDD recovery whereas, in case of a logical reason, it is possible to recover failed hard drive by using a recovery software like Failed Hard Drive Recovery software. Logical reason also includes hard drive crash due to bad sectors, improper removal in case the hard disk drive is an external hard drive, corrupt MBR details for hard drive during booting process or may be due to incorrect partitioning a drive.
