Here at San Diego PC Help, we see hard drive failure more than any other problem with a computer. It is unbelievable how many calls we receive on a daily basis! Before you read any further in this article, PLEASE, do yourself a favor and get a backup hard drive as soon as possible, even if you are currently suffering from drive failure.
We offer FREE data recovery diagnosis on any hard drive!
Whether you have a Windows or Apple Mac system, if your computer won’t start, it often is due to a malfunctioning hard drive. There are various kinds of hard drive problems, but they can be summed up as software, mechanical or electrical. When you drop off or mail your hard drive to our store, we will diagnose it to determine the nature of the problem and the best solution.
We offer two distinct types of recoveries for our clients. First, If the drive has firmware corruption, or a controller board problem, very often the data can be recovered through software means. Our technician will work on your drive at his recovery station, scanning it for issues and trying to repair the drive and pull the critical data from it. If the drive has mechanical failure (often indicated by a ‘clicking’ sound coming from the drive itself), in many (but not all) cases software recovery won’t work. You may need clean room data recovery, where the drive is opened in a dust-free, static-free environment and parts are pulled and replaced. Software recovery prices vary from a simple recovery and as the complexity and level of work involved increases, the price goes up. There is no way to know about your specific case until we diagnose it. Again, diagnosis is completely free, no strings attached. Clean room recovery is also available for more difficult cases, often involving hardware failure or some types of firmware corruption. In all cases, when a succesful recovery is performed, we will offer the lowest price possible. Diagnosis is always free.
