Mechanical data recovery is a process used when internal parts and pieces of a hard drive are damaged and/or need to be replaced. The recovery process must take place in a “clean room” environment because even a spec of dust can damage the drive further.
Mechanical recovery cases often take much longer than logical or hardware recoveries because of the level of precision they require. When parts need to be replaced, that can add time as well.
Mechanical damage is typically caused by:
- Bad sectors and blocks within the drive
- Spindle motor stops functioning
- PCB board is damaged
