Physical damage from a dropped hard drive can lead to complicated issues with the internal components. Components such as bad heads, bad 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.

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.
