External Hard Drive Recovery
As the quantity of external hard drives being used by both consumers and commercial entities have drastically increases over the past years so have the fatalities of external hard drives. We know encounter more failed external hard drives in our data recovery lab that internal desktop or laptop drives.
Often times these drives suffer from shock after being dropped or accidentally bumped while powered on and connected to the USB port. We also find that often times these drives just simply overheat due to insufficient cooling based on the small form factor design of the external drive enclosure, causing the drive to ultimately fail.
Our data recovery engineers are experts that have vast experience when it comes to recovering data from external hard drives. We have encountered drives that have suffered from water damage, stepped on, and even a case where a large truck ran over an external Lacie hard drive that was successfully recovered by our data recovery team.
