Types of Failure in hard drive
Registry error
  • Problems like Windows can't access the registry,
    that the registry is missing, or that the
    registry is corrupted, among others are slated
    under the category registry errors.
  • Registry errors can be caused by improperly
    uninstalled applications that leave registry
    entries that cause start-up problems

Virus attack
  • Virus attack could ruin the performance of the
    system to such extent that one has no alternative
    but to dump his system.
  • Some of the major reasons could be downloading
    software utilities from unsecured sites leading
    to the installation of various malicious software
    in addition to the original one.

Human error
  • Errors include installing incorrect directories,
    following wrong instructions, modifying system
    registry settings, changing system file
    properties or operations.

Logical/mechanical error
  • Hard drives are very much prone to errors on the
    mechanical and logical front.
  • Bad sectors, error on the part of mechanic or
    technician producing the hard disk come under
    such type of errors

Bad sector on hard disk
  • Bad sectors are divided into two types logical
    bad sectors and physical bad sectors.
  • Logical bad sectors appear because of the
    software error and these bad sectors can be
    repaired easily with some software.
  • Physical bad sectors are usually caused by the
    magnetic media error. It is very difficult to fix
    bad sectors of such kind.

Hard drive recovery methods
System file checker
  • The system file checker scan all system files and
    replace damaged file with a backup copy if the
    error occurs from system file errors or
    corruption thus leading to detection of hard disk

  • Use an Anti-Virus Program to scan and recover
    your damaged files and folders. The Anti-virus
    used should be updated and should be of a good
    reputation .

  • Another built in tool the CHKDSK can be used if
    the above utility does not work out. Provided the
    error comes from file system problems, CHKDSK
    must be able to fix it.

    available in the market lending high end support
