Best Software to Recover Data from Hard Drive Bad Sectors

Hard drive is the place where all the data is stored. There are many types of files stored on hard drive such as audio, video, pictures and many more. This information is stored in a single hard drive on the systems. As more and more users work on the same system storing huge amount of information, this is most likely to get inaccessible or lost as a result of bad sectors on hard drive. It may occur due to various reasons that arementioned below. People who have less knowledge of the computer will consider it to be a permanent loss of data. Don’t worry there is a perfect solution to recover data from the hard drive using recovery tool

Causes that lead to bad sectors on hard drive are:

  1. Improper Shutdown: Abrupt or improper procedure to shutdown the system may result in bad sectors. Sudden shutdown occurs as a result of system crash, software failure or when some of the applications are not responding will lead to creation of bad sectors on the hard drive.
  2. Viruses: Virus is the main reason for corruption of files in the system. These viruses enter the system through internet and it will corrupt files that are needed to the system to boot the OS resulting in data loss.
  3. Power Surge: When there are frequent power cuts while some work is going on in the system, it will cause errors in the file system and gradually lead to bad sectors being created on the hard drive. The unwanted rise and fall in the voltage will certainly damage the hard drive leading to an increase in bad sectors.
  4. Over Heated Hard Drive: There are many reasons why a hard drive gets heated up. And one among them is bad motherboard. When the motherboard gets corrupted, sometimes it results in over heating of the hard drive which eventually causes system to crash out as multiple bad sectors. The bad sectors created on the drive makes hard to access the data present on the hard drive.

The drive recovery tool is designed with special features to recover data from hard drive with bad sectors having file systems, such as FAT16, FAT32, NTFS, NTFS5, ExFAT, etc. It can recover data from flash drives, and internal hard drives which are of various types (SATA / SCSI / IDE etc.). There is an inbuilt feature in the tool which allows for identifying and recovering various file formats based on the unique signature of the file. Recovered files are listed on the basis of “File Type View” or “Data View”, and can be previewed before they have been saved on desired location of your computer disk or external hard drive. Files which are recovered with the help of drive recovery tool can be compressed, for saving memory space.

This tool is also capable of recovering laptop hard drive data keeping in mind the various file formats and also the size of each file without changing the actual file name. File Type View of the recovered files is preferred to those who like to recover data on the basis of particular file extensions. The Data View gives the hierarchical view of the files and folders present in the system. Separate tool has been built up to recover mac data from various versions of Mac operating systems. You can recover data from hard drive with bad sectors on Mac OS X Lion, Leopard, Snow Leopard, etc.
