WARNING: For hard drive failure, let Cherry's experts diagnostically determine both the cause and extent of damage. A professional recovery expert should diagnose the drive immediately after the crash occurs. Additional physical or structural damage and irreversible data loss can occur if you try and repair it yourself.

What is an External Hard Drive?

Any hard drive that attaches to the computer's outside port and is removable is known as an External Media Device.

What are the functions of External Hard Drives?

Both portable and detachable external hard drives can be transported place to place and are a convenient method to:

  1. Back up files from the computer's internal hard drive/drives
  2. Move or transfer data from computer to computer

Why is data recovery essential on External Hard Drives?

Data loss via hardware failure, corrupt file system, and dropped drives is prevalent on these storage media devices. Cherry Systems’ data recovery services can also recover data from a drive that has been physically damaged, including failure due to lightning, fires, floods, or another environmental issue.

How is the External Drive connected to the Computer System?

Connection to a computer's outside port is either by a Firewire or USB cable with the drive having an interface adaptor.

What is usually the first symptom of a damaged drive?

When powered on, the user will hear unfamiliar sounds from the device.

Cherry Systems, with their highly experienced engineers, can recover data from hard drive. It is imperative that you unplug the device as soon as any symptom appears and contact a data recovery expert.

Cherry Systems' highly qualified personnel will diagnose the extent of the damage. Causes might include:

  1. Structural damage to the hard drive case
  2. Logical file system damage
  3. Accidental dropping or excessive jarring
  4. Detaching the device inappropriately or at a critical time
  5. Heat—no ventilation in the case or lack of adequate ventilation
