Can You Recover Data From a Failed SSD?
What happens to data inside your SSD when it becomes dead? Can it be recovered? And after all, how can we recover data from this particular type of disk? These are the questions I will try to address in this article.
Identifying HDD Noise Problems
Read this article for examples of sounds emitted by a faulty hard disk and learn to identify them. The sounds of clicking, rustling, whistling or vibration that you never noticed before.
A hard disk is a mechanic device, and even being 100% trouble free it may emit certain sounds when working (remember the noise of magnetic heads positioning). That is, presence of certain sounds (especially when the disk is new) may not mean anything at all, but things are very different if you have never heard the noises before. Read More
SMART Parameters and Early Signs
of a Failing Hard Disk
This article talks about tools to use and parameters to check for to prevent accidental data loss due to hard drive failure.
S.M.A.R.T. (or simply SMART) is a monitoring system built into most modern hard drives. S.M.A.R.T. stands for Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology. The technology helps detect various reliability problems at an early stage, giving warning signs well in advance before the hard drive fails. By reading (and interpreting) the indicators, the user can prevent data loss by replacing the disk before the crash occurs. But what S.M.A.R.T. flags should we look at? There are dozens available!
