Seven Reasons Why Head Failure Happens
1. Hard drive wear out: Head failure will occur eventually when the hard drive suffers wear and tear. As soon as you reach the limit of the hard disk drive, you will experience head failure.
2. Dust inside the disk: Dust particles are harmful to the disk platter as it is highly sensitive. The hard drive head will get damaged when dust accumulates inside the disk or around the hard drive components.
3. Physical damage in disk platter: A damaged disk platter would result in close contact with the head, failing the hard drive’s head.
4. Poor manufacturing of components: Head failure could also be a result of poor manufacturing of the component in the hard drive. So it is not always physical damage or human error.
5. Human error: Last but not least, human error has a major role in physical damage to the hard drive. A sudden drop or hard drive knock on a hard surface could lead to misalignment of the head, which would compromise your data.
What are the solutions for head failure
1. Discontinue to use the hard drive: Once the hard drive is detected with a head crash or head failure, you should immediately stop using it.
2. Resort to expert: As soon as you find the hard drive has a head failure, you should rush to a hard drive recovery specialist. They have specialised tools and skills to get you the desired results.
