data recovery from damaged external hard disk

Hard drives will be damaged when virus attacked data in the drive or for other unpleasant reasons. It's true for anyone who uses a computer. If you store irreplaceable information on your hard drive, then a failure can be catastrophic. But can you recover the family photos, work documents or financial data that you kept meaning to back up, but never did? There might be hope, so don't give up on that damaged hard drive so quick. Here are tips that might help you with the data recovery from damaged external hard disk (including HDD with brand like Seagate, Toshiba and Western Digital).

Tip 1. Get to Know Hard Disk Damage

Hard drives may become damaged and inaccessible because of various reasons. If the disk itself is physically damaged, there's nothing you can do about it at home. If you care about your data, find a data recovery lab and let them do the repair job.

If the hard disk works in that you can hear it spinning, or even have a drive letter for that disk appear in Windows, there is still a chance to recover data from damaged hard disk. If that's the case, read along!

Tip 2. Do not Use the Disk any More

Putting any data onto the damaged disk can cause further corruption, making the original data on the damaged disk be overwritten. I put this tip before choosing the right tools as you must be warned: do not save the disk recovery tools you are about to download onto the faulty disk! Do not install data recovery software on the corrupted drive! Use a separate disk, partition, USB flash or memory card.

Tip 3. Choose the Right Software to Restore Files from Damaged Disk

Choosing the right tool may save you a lot of time and energy. Data Recovery Professional could just be the one. It recovers photos, videos, audios, documents and other files from our damaged external and internal hard disk drive. Here are the steps:
