Now, we know that it can be scary when your drive stops working, so we are going to help you understand the different types of failures that we can overcome.
Contrary to how this sounds, it has nothing to do with intelligence of your drive! Logical failures occur when data becomes unreadable to the drive. This can occur due to data corruption, downloaded viruses or malware or even a faulty program. Accidental deletion or formatting can cause this as well. Occasionally, viruses and malware can even deliberating delete your data and format partitions.
This is exactly what it sounds like. It usually means that the drive itself has been damaged, which can be through direct or accidental trauma. Sometimes this can occur when it experiences an logical failure first, and someone untrained in recovery attempts to open it. Tampering with a drive without professional knowledge always causes much more harm than good. The good news is that the data is still usually there, it just requires the correct equipment, training and skills to extract it without causing further damage.
