If the thought of professional hard drive repair sends shivers down your spine, remember that you can always get competitive quotes. Naturally, HDRA is able to be almost any quote in the industry, and we offer absolutely free technical support. The difficult issue with most hard drive crashes is that sometimes what may seem like a full on physical hard drive break down to an average user, is in fact a simple file system error. Our engineers can identify these particular problems and often fix them over the phone for free.
How Much Will a Hard Drive Repair Cost?
There’s no set pricing for hard drive repairs. Typically the price is set around the hardware you have, the condition it is in, and the amount of hours it takes our data recovery technicians to safely retrieve all of the data on the disk. The word “repair” may be a little misleading here as well, because really what will happen is that your hard drive platters will be safely imaged using a proprietary imaging software, and then we will take the data from there. From that point, we can either can either copy all of the data onto a new hard drive and ship it to you immediately or, as is the choice preferred by many users, just download all of your data in a zip file from our secure servers. The choice is yours. The only difference is the speed in which you receive your recovered data.
Don’t let the fear of a high priced hard drive repair put you off, because if you continue to use a faulty hard drive or attempt to retrieve the data yourself, you could do further damage. Any further damage to your hard drive when it is in a poor state result in the data on the disk being unrecoverable.
Signs You May Need To Repair Your Hard Drive
Common signs that your hard drive is breaking down, or is about to develop a fault include a clicking sound as the hard drive loads, or a buzzing noise coming from your computer case. The Windows “blue screen of death” is the common tech description for a blue screen in which your computer will no longer continue to operate. This screen typically will come just before a hard drive crashes for good.
There’s no time like the present to get in touch with a hard drive repair expert. Don’t leave things until it’s too late and your hard drive is completely broken – act smartly and get in touch with a professional as soon as possible.
