The Best Western Digital Hard Drive data recovery services, By Don Anderson

wd hard drive recovery
Western Digital is one of the largest and most successful hard drive manufacturers in the world. Western Digital drives can be very tricky and complicated to recover due to their complexity. It is imperative that you seek out a proessional if your Western Digital hard drive is damaged.

Data recovery and Western Digital 3.5" hard drives

Western Digital desktop drives or 3.5" hard drives are very complex when clean room repair is needed.

What makes Western Digital hard drives difficult to recover?

Western digital drives take great skill and precision when replacing the head assembly or needing to open the drive in a clean room for other repairs. Just opening the casing on the older model drives alone sets the head alignment off and will cause the drive to click and become unable to initialize in the second phase of recovery. By having someone unexperienced work on your Western Digital hard drive will almost always result in the drive becoming destroyed permanently.

Western Digital MyBook Data Recovery

When recovering data from a Western Digital MyBook hard drive another set of issues arise. Most of these drives are encrypted and after being repaired in a clean room and imaged reading all possible bad sectors they must be unencrypted before any data can be read.

Common Western Digital Hard Drive problems

Western Digital Clicking Hard Drives

In older Western Digital hard drives a clicking sound was commonly caused by the Printed Circuit Board shorting out or (PCB). Many years ago this was a very common problem that could have been fixed by replacing the board with a matching donor and desoldering the rom chip and replacing it with the original. Western Digital drives today no longer have the rom chip located on the boards and need to be reprogrammed with very expensive equipment. The most common cause of a clicking hard drive is still bad read/write heads which requires clean room repair.

Western Digital Dropped Hard Drives

Western Digital Hard Drives are in the majority of laptops on the market today. They are dropped all the time causing head crashes and clicking western digital drives. Western Digital has a huge line of external drives that are dropped nearly everyday causing clean room data recovery procedures.
