Is your Windows computer unbootable or unresponsive? Are you unable to get access of your valuable data stored on hard drive? This behavior can be caused by a number of issues with your hard drive. Generally, you encounter a number of BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) errors, when your hard drive comes across failure. The BIOS errors may vary, depending upon the version of BIOS, system motherboard, and system configuration. This behavior causes serious data loss situations and need disk data recovery to get your valuable data back.


The hard drive may prompt any of the below behaviors when it faces failure or breakdown due to any reason, either logical or physical:

  • Hard disk controller failure: It is a common prompt that makes your hard drive inaccessible and causes data loss situations. In such circumstances, you must check the data cable or interface cable of your hard drive. Try detaching and reattaching the cable to fixing it up. If the controller plug is faulty, you need to get it replaced.

  • Data Error: If you come across such kind of error, hard drive is facing CRC (Cyclic Redundancy Check) errors or the hard drive sectors are unreadable. You can try resolving the issue using disk repair utilities, such as ChkDsk in Windows, Disk Utility in Mac OS X, and fsck in Linux. These are built-in tools, which check the integrity and consistency of the hard drive.

  • No boot sector on disk: It occurs when the boot sector or MBR (Master Boot Record) of your hard drive gets damaged. It may occur due to various reasons, such as boot sector virus, improper system shutdown, operating system malfunction, and many alike.

  • Hard drive not detected: This issue occurs if your system BIOS is unable to detect the hard drive and boot your system through it. It may occur due to hard drive mechanical failure or hard drive crash.

All the above errors cause data loss and need hard disk recovery to be sorted out. If the data loss is caused by mechanical of physical hard drive failure, Disk Recovery service is required to repair or replace the damaged components and retrieve data from it.


On the other hand, logical disk failure failure can easily be handled by disk recovery software. They are completely safe and easy to use. The applications are capable of handling all types of logical data loss situations.
