Whether the data loss is due to accidental deletion, hardware failure, corruption, or any other issue, our skilled technicians use advanced techniques and state-of-the-art equipment to retrieve your valuable data from a wide range of external hard drive brands and models. If you’ve encountered any data loss situation with your external hard drive, don’t worry – our team is here to help you get your data back safely and efficiently.

  1. Check connections and try a different port or cable: Ensure that the connections between the external hard drive, the computer, and the power source are secure. Try using a different USB port or cable to rule out any connection-related issues.

  2. Try on a different computer: Connect the external hard drive to another computer to see if it gets recognised there. This can help determine if the issue is with the drive or the computer.

  3. Use Disk Management (Windows) or Disk Utility (Mac): Sometimes, the drive may show up in disk management tools even if it’s not accessible through File Explorer or Finder. Look for the drive in these tools and attempt to initialise or mount it.

  4. Avoid DIY recovery software: If the drive contains critical data, it’s best not to use free or random data recovery software found online, as they may cause further damage to the drive or data.

  5. Contact a professional data recovery service: If none of the above steps work or if you hear unusual noises from the drive, it’s essential to seek professional help. Our team at PITS Global Data Recovery Services has the necessary expertise and tools to handle such situations. We can diagnose the issue, repair any physical problems, and retrieve your data in a secure and efficient manner.

In many cases, a corrupted external hard drive can be fixed, and the data can be recovered. However, it’s essential to be cautious and follow the right steps to avoid further data loss or damage to the drive. Here’s what you can try:

  1. Avoid excessive DIY attempts: While it’s tempting to try various DIY solutions found online, refrain from attempting multiple fixes as they could potentially worsen the situation and reduce the chances of successful data recovery.

  2. Seek professional data recovery services: If the data on the corrupted external hard drive is critical or the above steps don’t work, it’s best to consult a professional data recovery service like PITS Global Data Recovery Services. Our experts have the knowledge and tools to handle complex cases of data loss due to corruption. We can assess the situation, repair any physical issues if present, and perform advanced data recovery procedures to retrieve your valuable data.

  1. Unrecognised by the computer: If your external hard drive is not being detected or recognised by your computer when you connect it, there might be corruption or other issues with the drive.

  2. File system errors: When trying to access the drive, you may encounter error messages related to the file system, such as “Disk needs to be formatted” or “File system is RAW.”

  3. Slow or unusual performance: If the external hard drive is taking an unusually long time to open files or folders or is freezing frequently, it could be a sign of corruption.

  4. Missing or inaccessible files: If you notice that certain files or folders are missing or can’t be accessed on the external hard drive, corruption might be the cause.

  5. Strange noises: Unusual clicking, grinding, or whirring sounds emanating from the external hard drive could indicate physical damage, which may lead to data corruption.

  6. Frequent disconnections: If the external hard drive frequently disconnects or ejects spontaneously, it could be due to corruption affecting the drive’s stability.

The lifespan of external hard drives can vary depending on several factors, including the quality of the drive, usage patterns, environmental conditions, and handling. On average, a well-maintained external hard drive can last anywhere from 3 to 5 years. However, some drives may fail earlier, while others can remain functional for a more extended period with proper care.

I took my Synology NAS to PITS for assistance after one of its four drives failed unexpectedly, leaving me unable to access any of my data. PITS immediately understood the critical nature of my ... predicament and wasted no time getting to work. They even completed the data recovery much sooner than I had anticipated. They also organized a verification session, allowing me to review the recovered results. Honestly, I was skeptical about the possibility of a full recovery, but to my surprise, all of my documents, media and the rest of the files were successfully recovered. The service was truly commendable. Should I ever face a similar issue in the future, I wouldn’t hesitate to use their services again.

I've had my LaCie SSD Pro for a really long time, and it's been super important to me. It has all my stuff from high school to the end of college. I had to contact PITS because my drive started having ... problems and all my files got messed up. But, thanks to PITS, they got all my files back, checked everything was okay in our verification session, and gave me a new drive with my files on it. I couldn't have asked for more, truly chuffed with their help.

Great service - I've never been as satisfied with anyone as much as I've been with PITS

After my Nan passed away, we discovered an old computer brimming with decades of family photos. The following day, when I attempted to transfer the media to my drive, the laptop displayed a black ... screen and ceased functioning. Having taken it to several computer repair shops without any success in recovering the data, PITS was highly recommended to me. And rightfully so. I can't thank PITS enough for what they've done for our family - we received all of the media and even the rest of her data. I am truly blessed to know that there are people who can help during these times
