Recovering data from Seagate hard drives

Data recovery from all different Seagate hard drive

We have almost 30 years of experience in Seagate hard drives data recovery.

Seagate has been one of the world's leading manufacturers of hard drives since 1978.

In Serman, we have recovered Seagate hard drives since 1989, both external and internal hard drives. We have specific technology for the intervention of Seagate units as well as specialized technicians. We are experts in recovering the oldest and most current units. To date Serman has collaborative agreements with Seagate in the field of data recovery.

we recover data from all type of hard drives

Any Type of Seagate Hard Drives

  • Internal hard drives (SATA, SAS, IDE/ATA, SCSI, Fibre Channel).
  • Solid state hard drives (SSD).
  • External hard drives (USB, FireWire, e-SATA, Thunderbolt...).
  • Ethernet hard drives (NAS).
  • Obsolete devices (IDE/XT, ESDI, MFM, RLL...).

Any Operative System

  • MAC.
  • LINUX.
  • UNIX.
  • Discontinued operative systems (Pick, Novell NetWare...).
data recovery from all operative systems

Any Type of Failure

  • Logical failure. Data are not accessible, but the hardware is not damaged (deletion, formatting, corruption, virus…).
  • Physical failure. Mechanical, electronic, controller or low-level control software failure.
  • Encryption.
  • Water damage.
  • Fire damage.

It can be found in any hard drive, because it does not relies on hardware but on software. The device does not have physical damage. It can be caused by formatting, deletion, boot corruption, partition corruption, virus, files corruption, overwriting, etc. To reach 100% data recovery it will be necessary to process the content of the hard drive with specific techniques, depending on the kind of damage. If there has been overwriting there will usually only be a partial recovery.
It is usually triggered by electricity fluctuations in power sources of both PCs and enclosures. The hard drive will not have any activity: it will not be detected, nor the motor will spin. It will be apparently “dead”. It can present a burnt smell, characteristic of that of electronic components. Changing the PCB will not fix it, because the PCB has been parameterized with the hard drive’s head. Serman has the technology to adapt donated PCB’s parameters to the damaged hard drive. Success rate is close to 100%.
There are different types of mechanical failure, depending on the manufacturer and model of the hard drive: - Whirring, vibration or motor not spinning. - It makes a “tac tac” noise and the motor may stop completely. - The BIOS does not detect the hard drive, or it is detected erratically. Depending on the seriousness of each case, we will have to apply mechanical support techniques and, on occasion, even transplanting the disks to another hard drive. This is a severe fault. The success rate is above 90%.
The head crash is a very common failure in hard drives from any manufacturer. It can be caused by an external agent (e.g. a hit) or by an internal degradation of the magnetic emulsion. The BIOS does not detect or has difficulty detecting the hard drive. It makes a cyclical and repetitive “tac tac” noise, that may stop after a few attempts. A head crash requires a head transplant in a cleanroom. Data recovery from a head crash will be affected by the high price of the very specific heads required for the process.
It can be found in all the hard drive manufacturers. It is usually caused by a hit or by a serious thermal imbalance. It can present different symptoms: - The BIOS does not detect the hard drive. - The motor shaft gets stuck, making an odd and characteristic whistle, like a musical tune. - The motor does not spin. When a motor failure happens, it is necessary to transplant the disks to another hard drive. This is a complex procedure that requires experience and extreme accuracy. A specific equipment will be required in each case. The success rate is above 85%.
