Defective Hard Drive Motor
We recover your data professionally and are very experienced with defective hard drive engines.

Defective Hard Drive Motor

If the hard drive motor suddenly stops working there can be various symptoms:

  • The motor starts, you hear a starting noise, but shortly thereafter the motor winds down again und stops running.
  • The motor doesn't start and makes no starting noises.
  • The motor tries to start, but something is blocking it.

We are familiar with these error patterns. In over 98 percent of cases we are able to recover tha data from the defective hard drive.

Most of the time it's not the motor that's damaged

It the hard drive (or the motor) doesn't start anymore it's often assumed that the motor is damaged, but that's hardly ever the case. The probability of motor damage is very low (under 0,01 percent).

Reasons why the hard drive doesn't start

  • Defective hard drive motor (very rare, < 0,01%)

Keep calm if your hard drive doesn't start anymore

It's very important that you remain calm and don't make hasty decisions. We recommend the following steps:

  • Don't apply power to the hard drive anymore in order to prevent consequential damage and increase the chances of a successful data rescue.
  • Don't open the gard drive. Even the finest dust particles on the surface may cause a head crash. Therefore hard drives with mechanical defect can only be opened in a clean room laboratory.
  • Please tell us the exact model number (e.g. ST3000DM001, ST3750640AS) and name (z. B. Barracuda 7200.11, Momentus 5400.6, Seagate Savvio 15K) and the capacity of your data carrier.
  • We advise you on our diagnosis service and the process of the data rescue. If you need an emergency data rescue our staff is there for you all around the clock. 
  • Take a look at our packaging tips so that your data carrier arrives in our laboratory safely.
