Hard Disk crash : just buried it and get yourself a new one

Assalamualaikum and Hi! A very good Sunday to all. Yesterday night, I got SMS from Achik, she mentioned that her laptop couldn't start and keep giving message "A disk read error occurred, press Ctrl+Alt+Dlt to restart." So, I Skype Due to ask him what is the message about. He replied that the hard disk crashed. Means, hardware error and you need to change your hard disk la dey. That one can't use anymore. I told achik the same thing and today she gave me to see it for myself. I asked Due whether the data can be recovered or not. He said it can be recoved but if your lucky.

So after I took Achik's laptop, I started it first. Confirmed. The message appeared. The next thing I do was I took out the hard disk and attached it to my external hard disk USB connector. I asked Achik before that whether the laptop still have warranty or not. She said no, because it's old already. Then, I tried to browse from my laptop to see whether the hard disk can be detected or not. Unfortunately, it can't. Then, I tried to search for software that maybe can help. Ahha. Found it but it was the demo version. The software named RecoveryFix for Windows. It can detect physical and logical devices that attached to the computer. Now I can detect the hard disk but I can't recover the data because the demo version didn't allow us to save the recovered data. Aiyo. Nevermind, at least I know that data from a crash hard disk can be recovered.

I read about the reason why this happens. Hard disk crashes usually occurs for the following reasons:
  1. Power surges
  2. Software Corruption or Malfunction
  3. Hardware or system failure
  4. Natural calamities
  5. User errors
Original source is here. I also recommended this article titled Hardware Tips : Surviving a Disk Crash--a Checklist. I get it from PC World. Well, that's all for now. The conclusion is, get yourself a new hard disk if this happens to you and don't forget to always do backup especially your very, very important files, okay. Due told me that advice. Thanks dude.
