Datarescue after hardware errorsAttingo data rescue is specialized in the handling of physically damaged and manipulated storage media. Our technicians have both in-house clean room laboratories as well as an extensive spare parts store at their disposal and additionally have a great deal of experience. Continuous research and development ensures optimal results.
Reasons for data loss due to hardware errors
As a rule, hardware damage is exacerbated by repeated start attempts of the storage medium. In traditional HDD hard disks, the write/read heads float just a few dozen nanometres above the rotating magnetic disks, which spin with speeds of up to 250 rotations per second.
When the write/read heads touch the magnetic layer of the surface, minute particles are removed from both the surfaces as well as from the write/read heads and due to the centrifugal force, these are distributed in the entire housing. As a result, the probability increases exponentially that the write/read heads will come across such a particle again and cause further damage. In the worst case, depending on the model, the entire magnetic layer can be removed in just a few minutes or hours.
The speed of the removal depends on the type of carrier material. Glass is highly suitable for high rotational speeds. For this reason, these types of hard disks are often used in servers or notebooks. However, this also means that in the case of a defect of the write/read heads, destroyed surfaces occur more quickly. Contrary to this, there are carrier surfaces made of aluminium, which are somewhat slower as their rotational speeds are lower.
