It’s a sinking feeling–that moment you realize that a hard disk drive failure has resulted in the loss of critical data. System or mechanical failure, a sudden power surge or physical damage such as water or moisture can all lead to hard disk drive failure and costly computer downtime.
Signs that your computer may be headed for a crash include strange clicking or grinding sounds, files that mysteriously disappear, frequent crashing during the boot-up process, slow processing of even small files, or your computer is running unusually hot. If your computer shows any of these symptoms, back up your data immediately. If a failure occurs before you can back up your files, all may not be lost. Consider hiring a professional data recovery service.
Choosing the right data recovery service can be difficult because the cost can vary from affordable to very expensive depending on the size and type of the storage media and how bad the damage is.
