What to do after you dropped your Hard Drive

Is your hard drive acting up after a bad drop? If so, your first step is to stop what you are doing and immediately SHUT OFF your computer! This step is very crucial and will lead to higher chances of recovery especially if you hear strange clicking sounds or scratching noises. Depending on the physical drop, your hard drive may be in need of data recovery. From a bad drop, the internal components inside of the damaged hard drive such as bad heads, bad sectors, and/or damage to the enclosure can lead to improper reading of your data. In other words, your data will not be accessible.

What is the next step?

Your next step would be to make an appointment with a trained specialist to diagnosis the hard drive.

Working with Five Star Data Recovery was a great experience. It’s never a fun day when you find that your data is in trouble…but the team at Five Star was very quick to answer questions on a weekend after hrs and then promptly got to work as soon as we dropped off our corrupt CFast card. The whole process was very clear, they communicated often and in detail and in the end were 100% successful in recovering everything we needed. Our footage was saved and it was top notch service along the way. The final invoice was exactly what he quoted at the beginning with no surprise costs. I 100% recommend Vahan and his team.

I am so thankful that they have 24/7 support on the phone. I just recently called after my hard drive fell onto carpet. They had all the answers and knew exactly what they were talking about. I would recommend them for hard drive support!

Can’t say enough good things about Five Star Data Recovery. Took my drive in and had the data back within 24 hours. I was even able to recover the “damaged” files, so pretty much a total recovery of 20 years worth of data. Yeah, yeah, I should have backed up my drive, but I’m just glad that Vahan and the Five Star team were able to get me back in business!
