Your hard drive is the most important thing you have in your PC because it is the one that stores all your information. In this way, it is important to ensure that your hard disk drive is kept in proper running condition so that your data may not be corrupted. It would then be important to perform regular hard disk scans using anti virus software and regular maintenance of your PC e.g. having it blown to remove dust. A small particle of dust landing on platters of the hard drive disk can cause you to lose all your information.

But it is also good to remember that the hard drive is a man-made machine. Therefore, the unfortunate thing is that despite the amount of care that is taken, hard disk drives are still bound to crash. So have to look for ways of recovering data after it has failed.

Data loss and system crashes occur when errors are experienced in the hard disk sectors. This does not only apply to hard disks but to anything that is considered a storage device e.g. magnetic tapes, CDs/ DVDs, USB flash disks etc. Once the system is overwhelmed by either logical or physical errors, it is bound to fail.

When the hard disk drive is failing, one of the common problems experienced is croaking. Croaking includes things such as frequent error messages such as ‘Disk Boot Failure’ ‘Operating system missing’, disk not in proper running order while the computer is booting, the “Blue Screen of Death” (a blue screen with a lot of information written on it that shows the hard disk is being defragmented) or even weird sounds such as whirring or click sounds. When such things are experienced, it could mean that your system is about to crash. It is then advisable to backup as much data as possible. However, backup may become outdated.

Therefore, the next option would be to employ the services of a data recovery expert. This is the most advisable and, personally, the best option to be taken when the system begins to crash. With the experience they have, data recovery specialist will use the necessary skill and technology to recover your data.
