Lvc Data Recovery strongly advise to keep calm when your hard drive stops working or giving problems. Reckless actions has led to multiple cases of unrecoverable drives where it could have been avoided otherwise. Do not attempt to force the drive to copy or access files but keep the drive unplugged and shut down until it's in the care of professional hands. Do not attempt to open the drive or fidget with its chipset. These actions could lead to further damage that will lead to a loss of data.
Immediately bring the drive to the LVC offices so that we could perform a free analysis on your drive to establish the problems before you lose your data.
These symptoms are normally related to electro-mechanical failure. This type of recovery normally takes 2 - 5 working days depending on the availability of parts and capacity of the Drive.
We also specialize in deleted files, hard drives that have been formatted, disks re-partitioned and data that was lost due to viruses. This type of recovery normally takes 1 - 3 working days.
As not all PC users are computer technicians we have decided to provide our customers with step by step drive removal instructions.
Remove the power cord from the back of the computer case. Press the computer power button to make sure that the power is off prior to opening the casing.
Using a screw-driver, remove both the side panels from the computer case. This is usually done by sliding the panels slightly backwards and lifting them out after removing the screws. (Check with your supplier concerning warranty issues.)
Remove the white power connector by pulling it from the back of the HDD. (Note: These connectors can be quite tightly seated). Make sure to pull on the plastic part of the connector as shown below and not the coloured wires.
Remove the SATA cable from the drive by placing the thumb and index finger on either side of the connector and then pulling it backwards. These SATA cables are normally Red in colour.
Remove the 4 small screws securing the HDD to the case chassis.
Slide the HDD backwards and remove from case. Do not touch the underside as this houses an electrical circuit board.
