As Seagate drives are often used in a variety of portable devices such as laptops, external devices and music devices there at an increased risk of a knock or fall. Such an impact or fall are the primary reasons Seagate hard drives develop a mechanical failure, but from time to time they can develop naturally.

Seagate Hard Drive Failure
Seagate firmware failure can be very difficult to diagnose without the correct diagnostic equipment, firmware is the operating code or as we like to call it the drives own operating system, which controls various drive operations. From time to time this firmware can become corrupted, damaged or become inaccessible and as a result drives owners are unable to assess data stored upon the drive.
Typical symptoms of a firmware failure vary, however if your drive sounds as it should and isn’t recongnised then it may just be suffering from a firmware failure. Is your device is recognized by a unusual capacity, is intermittent or you have recently updated the firmware but cannot access any data then this is a indication for firmware failure.
Unfortunately Seagate firmware failure cannot be fixed without the ability to communicate with the drive in a special way using specialist firmware equipment such as PC3000. Here at Datlabs we have all the tools and experience you require to overcome firmware failure and recovery your data. If you are experiencing such problems please give our trained staff a call today.
Seagate Hard Drive Bad Sectors
The number one hard drive failure we see here at Datlabs and something not exclusive to Seagate drives. A Media degradation or bad sector as it is commonly known is caused by the degradation of the magnetic signal and is caused by general wear and tear or poor manufacturing processes. Hard drive can deal with bad sectors and it is very common to gain a bad sector without even knowing, however if the problem is too badly degraded then the hard drive will become corrupted or fail completely.
Typical symptoms are slow operation such as long boot process, partial data access, blue screen of death and boot looping. If you drive is a number of years old and is suffering from similar symptoms then this maybe the cause. If you still have access, it is recommended that you backup you data from your Seagate hard drive as soon as possible, if you cannot establish access then please get in touch, our technicians are on hand to advise.
