Common Problems that require Data Recovery on Hitachi Drives
The exceptional reliability of Hitachi memory devices still doesn’t serve as a 100% guarantee from the occasional failure or damage. Hitachi drives are also prone to break every now and again, especially the older ones. The more common issues with drives of this brand include reader head failure, problems with the printed circuit board (PCB), and loss of magnetic properties on the platters.
It is not completely uncommon for the head mechanism to break or malfunction, either, especially following physical impact like a drop or a strong jolt. Sometimes hard drive heads break on their own, as a result of normal wear and tear. It is not unexpected in older devices, due to their highly fragile build.
Printed circuit board damage can be the result of a power surge or caused by contact with water from a spilled drink. More seldom it can be the case of loss of magnetic properties on the platters, or a buildup of dust inside the device. This creates a significant risk to the integrity of the platters and the data on them.
