Western Digital Scorpio Black 750GB Bad sectors problem
A broken Western Digital Scorpio 750Gb Hard Drive was posted to us for a Data Recovery job. As with every Data Recovery service and Hard Drive you never know what’s coming and every job has its own challenges. The Western Digital Scorpio 750Gb Hard Drive was plugged in as an external hard drive but suddenly showed up as a RAW drive in Windows 10 for the customer. Well, the good news was that after running tests and diagnostic the Western Digital Scorpio 750Gb Hard Drive seemed to be in good mechanical working order. It seemed that bad sectors on the Hard Drive caused Data loses in the area where the partition information was saved and no valid file system was recognized by Windows or OS X. We use specialist hardware solutions to get around that problem to get a good read of the hard drive. In the Video below you can see areas ( grey ) where bad sectors were found. It took about 3 hours to make a full image of the drive and to reconstruct the existing NTFS file structure. The Western Digital Scorpio 750Gb Hard Drive was posted to us on Friday morning and by lunch time we had 100% of all Data Recovered for the customer. After lunch, the customer was able to gain access via our server to his most important business data and we posted all the data to him the same day. It took less than 24 hours to get all Data back at a cost of about £220 all in.
