Data Recovery for Maxtor Hard Drives

We support Maxtor hard drive recovery, and can perform successful data recovery on all of the Maxtor hard drive models and sizes. If you have a Maxtor hard drive crashed, the most important thing you can do is contact us immediately.

Maxtor drives are not an exception and like all other hard drives, occasionally experience a failure in a variety of ways. In fact, there are two main forms of failure: logical and physical. Logical failure is usually a result of a file-system corruption and can occur due to a virus, accidental formatting of the drive or deletion of the key files. The drive is still recognized by the system BIOS, but data appear to be inaccessible. If the system BIOS does not identify the presence of the hard drive and your drive is being inoperative, then the symptoms of physical failure have occurred.

Some common types of physical failure:

Firmware corruption:
If you have seen these names on the BIOS screen - Maxtor N40P, Maxtor Athena, Maxtor Ares C64K, Maxtor Calipso, Maxtor Falcon, Maxtor Proxima, Maxtor Vulcan, Maxtor Romulus, Maxtor Rigel - instead of the real model name, it means that the BIOS does not identify the presence of the hard drive or identifies it incorrectly, putting alias instead of its original ID.

Mechanical:
It is usually a result from a motor bearing failures. It occurs if the motor overheats and stops spinning. The hard drive's heads and/or platters are most probably damaged, when you can hear a clicking, scraping or grinding noise.

Electronic:
The hard drive will appear dead, not spinning and not being recognized by the BIOS. All hard drives have a circuit board, and this board allows the drive to communicate with the computer and vice-versa. Burned chip on the PCB controller or damaged circuit are common reasons of electronic failure. Heat can cause the electronics to fail. Power surges are also one of the most common problems. The smell of burnt circuits combined with the sight of smoke coming out of your computer is something indicating about the damage of the PCB board.
