Hard Disk Crash Data Recovery – Alandata Data Recovery

Hard Disk Crash Data Recovery problems range from simple to difficult. Alandata has the expertise and  invested in hardware and the development of proprietary software tools to make difficult or impossible recoveries common.  Here are a few of the more difficult types of hard disk data recoveries we tackle everyday.

Hard Disk Crash Data Recovery Due to Electronic failures.

  • Circuit boards on modern hard disks are programmed and tuned to each disk and can rarely be swapped in case of failure. We often repair or reprogram bad boards to make Hard Disk Crash Data Recovery commonplace.


Hard Disk Crash Data Recovery from Crashing yet partially accessible Hard Drive.

  • We has a sophisticated proprietary system to copy crashing hard disks.
  • With our system we copy the good platters and avoid the bad platter until last.
  • If just a single head is bad, we copy the good heads before rebuilding the disk to recover the last head.
  • Even if a single platter can’t be recovered this will often provide an 80 percent recovery of hard disk crashed data.


Service Area Corruption Data Recovery.

  • The service area is a part of the disk drive that is inaccesible to the user but is critical for the drive to function.
  • The service area has things like the bad block list, the voltages required to read and write, the firmware etc.
  • The service area can only be accessed and analyzed using special sophisticated equipment.
  • We invested in a $20,000 analyzer to diagnose and repair the SA
  • Considerable experience and expertise is required to repair or bypass SA issues.


Replacing Failed Heads and Head Amplifier Chips to Recover Data.

  • We have the expertise to locate and acquire matching parts
  • We can rebuild a drive with good heads to recover the data.


Seized bearings.

  • Modern drives use fluid dynamic bearings. These are solid bearings that spin on a molecular layer of oil.
  • Dropping or bumping drives often results in seizure.
  • We repair many seagates that have been seized.
  • This repair requires a complete and difficult rebuild of the drive.
  • This involves moving the heads and platters to a new good drive. Any dirt or microscopic misalignment of the parts will cause it to fail.
