What to Do if Your HGST Hard Drive Fails

If your HGST hard drive fails, it is crucial to stop using it immediately. Continuing to operate a failing drive can result in further damage, making data recovery more difficult and sometimes impossible. Power down your device safely to prevent any additional loss or corruption of your valuable data.

Hard drive failures can be attributed to a myriad of causes, ranging from physical damage due to drops or spills to logical errors such as file corruption or virus attacks. Overheating, power surges, and natural wear and tear over time can also lead to drive malfunctions.

Regardless of the reason for your HGST hard drive failure, our PITS Global Data Recovery team is equipped to retrieve your lost data.

We tackle each situation with a tailored approach, ensuring the highest possibility of data recovery, no matter the scenario. We recover data from a wide range of HGST hard drive series, including but not limited to:

  • HGST Deskstar Series
  • HGST Ultrastar Series
  • HGST Endurastar Series

Our PITS Global Data Recovery team is adept at managing the unique challenges presented by each series of HGST drives, showcasing their diversity and adaptability.

Common Symptoms of HGST Device Failure

It is crucial to recognise warning signs of potential HGST hard drive failure. Stay vigilant for these symptoms and take prompt action to prevent data loss.

  • Unusual noises: If your hard drive starts making clicking, grinding, or buzzing sounds, it could indicate a mechanical failure. These noises are often caused by damaged read/write heads, motor issues, or other internal component failures.
  • Slow performance: If your computer is taking longer to boot up, open files, or perform basic tasks, it could be a sign of hard drive failure. As the drive starts to fail, it may struggle to read and write data, resulting in slower overall performance.
  • Frequent crashes: If your system keeps crashing or freezing whilst in use, it could be due to a failing hard drive. This is especially true if these crashes occur when performing tasks that access a lot of data, such as opening large files or running multiple programmes simultaneously.
  • Error messages: If you start receiving error messages stating “disk boot failure” or “operating system not found,” it could indicate an HGST hard drive failure. These messages typically occur when the computer’s operating system no longer recognises the drive.

HGST Ultrastar Helium Recovery

HGST’s Ultrastar Helium hard drives are renowned for their high capacity, reliability, and low power consumption. However, even these advanced drives can fail for various reasons.

If you have an HGST Ultrastar Helium drive that has failed, do not panic. Our team at PITS Global Data Recovery possesses the requisite expertise and tools to manage the intricate recovery processes of these particular drives proficiently.

The Ultrastar Helium drives have a unique design, with helium gas sealed inside the drive to reduce air resistance and allow for more platters in the same space.

This makes the recovery process more challenging, as specialised equipment and techniques are required to handle these drives properly. Our team is well-versed and well-prepared to handle HGST Ultrastar Helium drives, ensuring optimal data recovery outcomes.

We were thoroughly impressed by PITS Global Data Recovery Services since these guys could recover not only the half or majority, but all of our data that we sent them on Seagate NYTRO SSD. There was ... more than 1TB of data saved up on that device to which we had no access anymore. Despite difficulties, PITS recovered everything and transferred the data to a new HDD. Extraordinary you may ask? Not for PITS and their professionalism 💪🏻Absolutely brilliant

I believe this is the only company in the UK that has its own data recovery lab and doesn't send customers' devices elsewhere. I have been searching for such a company for a while, as it's hard for me ... to trust anyone after previous unsuccessful data recovery attempts. Besides having their own lab, PITS definitely boasts amazing customer service. They handled my complicated data loss situation with great efficiency, recovering every piece of lost data. During the final step, which I believe was called the verification session, we had the opportunity to check the recovered data and give our approval. It was a huge relief. Cheers for the brilliant service and the data recovery!

The place is next to the Nee Wimbledon Theatre and Polka Theatre. I was visiting PITS because of my issue with LaCie 1TB HDD that had a water damage and wasn’t working anymore. The device not working ... wasn’t that big of an issue but then I remembered that it had all my academic files in it. That’s when PITS came in clutch and recovered every file that was saved in there. I got all my ~700gb back with no missing data! Imagine the work they had done, which is pretty impressive. Well deserved 5 ⭐️

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.
