Data Recovery - Read/Write Heads Stuck

Thank you to FiveStarDataRecovery for recovering data from a failed hard drive. Our client was able to get 98% of their data back. When WesTech MSP cannot recover data, we go straight to the experts at Five Star Data Recovery – https://www.fivestardatarecovery.com/

The issue as related by the technician at Five Star Data Recovery: The issue with this case was a diagnosis called “Stiction.” This is where the read/write heads that are supposed to be parked on ramps when the drive is powered off have crashed on top of the platters, not allowing them to spin, thus causing a beeping like sound. More and more we see people watching videos online and attempt to repair this issue themselves. This is a FANTASTIC example of why that should not be attempted. In cases like this where the read/write heads are damaged, IF the drive gets powered on after freeing them from the platters, the data will be gone forever
