Physical Damage to a Dropped Hard Drive

Physical damage from a dropped hard drive can lead to complicated issues with the internal components. Components such as bad headsbad sectors, and/or damage to the enclosure can lead to improper reading of your data. Moreover, your files will no longer be accessible! Overall, the sensitivity of a dropped hard drive is too difficult to recover. If you hear strange clicking or scratching noises after you dropped your hard drive, then turn it off immediately and call the professionals at Five Star Data Recovery. We will extract your data for you professionally. Nonetheless, our best recommendation is not to repair the damaged hard drive on your own such as home remedies since data recovery will be the prime area of restoration. We are trained and ready to recover your data within a short period of time depending on the damage.

Fantastic experience! From start to finish, Vahan and his team were amazing… incredibly knowledgeable, kind, comforting, and easy to talk to. And…. even better, they were able to save most of my corrupted files. Highly recommended!

Vahan and his team were very communicative and helpful. I had an external hard drive that crashed. It was a 2TB Seagate. He was able to get all my files back. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for data recovery to come to 5 stars. They’re very friendly and respectful. They will answer all your questions.

Losing data is never a fun experience. However Five Star Data Recovery makes you not feel as bad for dropping a hard drive, or losing any files. The facility is neat and clean, and they have a certified clean room for all the repairs which automatically makes them better than your average. The ladies at the front desk were inviting & sweet. The communication throughout the process was transparent and clear. My hard drive was fixed, recovered, and transferred to a new drive in only a few days, and at a competing, or even better price than the next. Thank you guys!
