Databe experts work every day and night with internally damaged media, suffering from problems like jammed disk motor, stuck or damaged heads, clicking head actuator, disks vibration, or dusty and scratched platters, burned or damaged electronic components, ruined or corrupted the whole operating systems or just some particular files. Needless to say we have experts with deep knowledge in every hard drive model (new and old) as well as in every operating system, including famous Microsoft, Apple, and Linux. Virtual volumes (VMWare +other), encrypted drives/disks/partitions are supported as well. Regardless the failure issue the failed media had undergone - from troubling to access files from corrupted disk volumes due to physical damage to internal disk platters to software malfunction and problems related to viruses, lost/deleted or corrupted files - our laboratory can handle them all. Our team of engineers will start working with the damaged media IMMEDIATELY upon its arrival to our lab. We have everything here in the lab to finish the job and send you good news about success in data recovery of files you need, hopefully sooner than you expect.

The symptoms of media failure are not always such obvious, unless the device went from seemingly good condition to obvious dead state in a short period of time. Sometimes, the first indirect signs of drives failure may indicate the following problems:

  • Freezing or locking up the computer
  • Not detected by BIOS / CMOS
  • Hard drive is unable to access (inaccessible drive)
  • Hard drive makes a repetitive clicking sound, or few clicks and stops the motor
  • Unable to boot computer
  • The disk is asking to be formatted (re-format)
  • Unable to access drive with an error message

What Our Customers Say...

Terry from Boston Massachusetts USA: Seagate Pipeline HD.2 ST1000322CS 1Tb external

I got lost data from my hard drive. After a power-off/on operation, the drive is no longer detected by BIOS and data is inaccessible. I'd like to retrieve all files if possible from broken hard drive. I read the recovery testimonials on web and hopefully you can help me too.

After recovery: The new external hard drive has gotten all the data from the broken one. Databe Lab reputation speaks for itself! Your support is so appreciated.

MB Industries LLC, Rayne, Louisiana USA: Hitachi 5K500 B-500 from laptop

Failed HTS545050B9A300 hard drive has no spinning sound. Machine locked up and on reboot would not see the hard drive. I attached the drive to another machine via SATA3 cable and power and other machine would not ID the drive. I noted that the drive was not spinning up probably because of stack or burned disk motor.

After recovery: Thanks a lot for your fast and accurate services. We got all of our data files back in no time after the drive crash at the unheard price here in the States. We will strongly recommend your company to all of our associates.

AMT Asset Management, Boca Raton, Florida: Western Digital WD Blue WD10EZEX-00KUWA0 1Tb

HDD failed after Power Surge. I had to order a similar hard drive in order to get a replacement circuit board for the one that was damaged during the power surge. I replaced the external circuit board on the drive and once I connected it to my computer and powered it on, the clicking sound disappeared. My BIOS recognizes that there is a drive present but it cant ID it correctly. Apparently the internal firmware on the drive has been corrupted.

After recovery: Outstanding results. Well done. My greatest appreciation to your data recovery team.
