How to Repair a Hard Drive.
Almost without fail customers contacting our help line having experienced a hard drive failure ask the question “do you repair hard drives.” Our response is almost without fail a qualified “no but we can retrieve the data that is stored on your faulty hard drive.”
So why do we not claim to repair hard drives ?
The term repair implies that an item that was damaged or faulty is, having been “patched up,” now fit for purpose once again. With hard drives this guarantee of functionality can not be met whilst still retaining access to the data that is stored on the device.
Repair dictionary definition:-
to restore something damaged, faulty, or worn to a good condition.
So what are refurbished hard drives ?
Well good question !
Refurbish dictionary definition:
“Renovate, redecorate, recondition, renew, rebuild, reconstruct, remodel; improve,”
We are aware of second user drives being wiped tested and resold cheaply, however this is different proposition than rebuilding a hard drive to its original good standard by replacing worn components. Anyone out there who claims they rebuild and guarantee the subsequent use of previously used hard disk drive products, then feel free to give me a call.
So what do you, Datlabs do ?
The correct and simple answer to what we do, is that we reverse engineer hard drive technology in order to recover stored data. In this process we replace and repair components, firmware and applications in order to restore an operational functionality. Once functionality is restored we copy data to new and reliable data storage products.
