Hard Drive Head Replacement

Hard Drive Bad HeadsHard Drives Gone Bad

Bad heads are a common problem with hard drives. When the internal components named “the read and write heads” start to go bad, the data on the platter become illegible by the hard drive. It is easy to visualize if you think about the inside of a hard drive looking like an old, vintage record player. The read and write heads are the components on the end of the actuator arm which moves along the disk shaped platter of the hard drive to read and write your data.

In general, heads within a hard drive begin to go bad. The hard drive may begin to make clicking or scratching sounds. This is a signal for overall BAD health of the hard drive. Overall, if you have a hard drive that has begun making strange noises, or you know that your data is not being read properly, then it is time to bring in your hard drive to Five Star Data Recovery for our data recovery team to repair the bad heads for you.Bad Heads
