The leading cause of external hard drive failure is being dropped. This causes internal physical damage to the drive, which can cause platters to become mis-aligned or the heads to stick to the platters.

Other causes of external hard drive failure include inadequate cooling or ventilation which cause the drive to overheat. Plugging in and unplugging often. Power failures and power surges. Nearby lightning strike. Age. And sometimes they just fail for no apparent reason. In all of these cases we can help you get your data back.

Because external hard drives are commonly used as backup devices for pictures, files, and other documents it is vital that you make sure your external drive is properly taken care of. And that you back it up to another device or the cloud regularly for extra protection against data loss.
