  • Unusual Clicking or Noises:

When you hear unusual grinding or thrashing noses, unfortunately it is most likely an indication that your hard disk drive is beyond repair. Such failures are often preceded by loud, unusual clicking noises. It is important that you get to know the normal sounds of a working hard drive so that you can recognize the unusual noises when it occurs and act quickly to determine exactly what the problem is. It is best to turn off any clicking drives and contac our data recovery experts for advice.

  • Disappearing Data and Hard Disk Errors:

When you find that you are unable to save a document, or are unable to locate a file that was on your desktop, or several of your programs stop working (most likely the program file is missing) you may have a degraded or failing hard drive. It may be that your files were moved by someone else or that you have a virus, but disappearing data is most often a sign that you may soon replace your hard drive.

  • System Fails to Recognize Drive:

When a drive is not recognized by your computer, this generally indicates a problem with your drive, not your computer. However, the best first step is to test your hard drive with another computer. If this test fails and your drive still isn’t recognized, there is an issue with the drive. Most likely it is a mechanical failure requiring professional hard drive recovery to extract the data from the disk.

  • Computer Crashes:

If your computer is regularly experiencing a blue-screen or is randomly rebooting, crashing, or otherwise failing to reboot, you may have an issue with your drive. If the crashing happens especially at times when the computers is accessing large files (such as during the boot sequence), it may indicate a problem with your drive.

  • Really Slow Access Times:

When it is taking your computer a long time to perform simple tasks, like opening a folder or emptying trash, your computer’s drive is likely failing. These symptoms are almost always followed by drive failure.  If your computer hard drive has been accessing files slowly, though, for several months, you may want to consider uninstalling your operating system and reinstalling it.


If you experience any of the symptops noted here and suspect a hard drive failure, it’s best to shut down the drive immidiately and contact the eDiscovery Solutions professional hard drive recovery experts as soon as possible.
