Even the Most Damaged Hard Drives Can Have Data Extracted

Hard drives fail every day. People learn to rely on them because they are quite the resilient consumer product. They have a rating that is called an MTBF. That is mean time between failure. They can be rated in the hundreds of thousands of hours. Using them around the clock, the devices they are in would likely become obsolete before the MTBF is reached. Plus, hard drives can take abuse that would likely destroy the electronic devices they are in. Still, they do fail. Data recovery services such as Alba Data Recovery work to get back important files, images, videos, emails and other information that can disappear from a hard drive in a split second.

It could be a virus or malware that causes the data loss. It may be a power surge through the power cable of the computing device or through the Ethernet cable. (more…)
