Common Symptons Of Data Recovery Issues For Western Digital HDDs

Western Digital data recovery can become necessary if your hard drive unit experiences any of the common mechanical failure problems inherent in all brands of hard drive, such as:

  • Read/write heads fail; symptoms include near constant clicking sounds, driver hangs or a slowing down of motor speed.
  • Failure to be recognised by the BIOS.
  • Drive appears to slow down.
  • Receive error message ‘Windows delayed write failure’.
  • Computer hangs – or displays a blue screen.
  • Sudden seizure of the hard drive due to overheating problems.

A less common problem experienced by Western Digital hard drives is that occasionally models that use the SMOOTH motor controller chip will fail due to this chip blowing. While more difficult to diagnose, the Data Recovery Hospital can usually restore any lost or inaccessible data to you on a storage medium of your choice.

Western Digital Data Recovery | Hard Drive Diagnostics

This review applies to an ‘old’ Western Digital external hard drive that had the misfortune to fall off my desk and thus become quite temperamental when trying to access the data on it.

 A quick google search displayed several results (naturally!) but chose to go with R3 as they had a Scottish based office… although I think my drive actually ended up in Northern England!? A courier was used to come and collect my drive which I had packed extremely well to try and avoid any further damage!

 First reports back weren’t good. Told that the drive itself was damaged but they would try to see what they could recover.

 Several emails and a few weeks later it transpired that the drive needed ‘rebuilding’ and thus the hunt was on for a donor drive of the exact same make/model.

 Well – it took quite some time (about 3 months in all) but it would appear that the repair worked as the much newer portable drive I sent away with the damaged one returned home yesterday courtesy of a next-day courier.

 Today I sat and went through the contents and yes – 12 years worth of photos and documents had been retrieved – along with quite a few MP3’s (which I wasn’t bothered about but got them back anyway!).

While their communication might not be top class the results have leased me completely and have justified the spend – especially to get back all my wedding photos and those from a ‘holiday of a lifetime’ to Kenya…

Thank you R3 for your hard work and perseverance with my drive…

This was great! I thought I had lost all of my documents because of my corrupt memory pen; I thought that I would have to retype all of my work. But all it took was about 15 minutes for them to fully recover all my lost work and now I have it back and I am so grateful.

This was the first time we had used a data recovery service, so I didnt know what to expect, but R3 Data Recovery made everything simple and their communication and service were excellent.

They managed to recover nearly all the files from our failed hard drive and despatched the data back to us promptly on an external HDD.

I can’t think how I could fault R3.
