Hard Disk Trouble and Recovery



The Last week was quite an eventful one for me . Was too busy with my Computer Problems that didnt find any time to post on this blog . Well , lemme go in a little bit of detail here . 

Last week while watching a movie on my Computer suddenly i was confronted with the “Blue Screen of Death ” . After the restart the computer became dead slow and after more than one hour i noticed that one of my Partitions have disappeared . I restarted the Computer and it failed to boot . This was something of a shock to me as most of my data , including my projects were in it and i didnt want to lose it . I took the Hard Disk to a Computer vendor and when he plugged it in a computer , it showed only a single partition and the rest as unpartitioned space . When i told him about the problem , he didnt beleive me and said i must have accidently deleted the partitions ………….wtf………I really hate these type of people , they dont know anything and will try to pretend that they are genious . Anyways he recommended that if the data was important , he may send it to some data recovery people but i refused as it was too expensive . After Coming back i formatted the disk and reinstalled Windows , the hard disk was fine . I had lost all hope when my friend called me up and on hearing my problem , he told me of a data recovery software that he uses to recover the data . Initially i was not pleased , i have always beleived that Data Recovery was some expert job and was not possible by us , but still decided to give it a try . I got the software “Get Data back ” from him and voila ……..after 15 hours ……….i managed to recover almost 70% of my data which i transferred to my new Hard Disk which i purchased . The data loss was basically of my Music which is not such a  big deal .

Still i am unable to figure out why this problem occured , was it a Hard Disk problem or was it because of “BSOD” . I have faced BSOD before and have never faced such a problem . Anyways if you have some ideas , do tell me about it …Still A happy Ending to a bad incident .

    I think what you faced is a hdd problem you better have a backup of all the data in another hdd or in another computer. What data recovery software did you use to recover your data…

  2. hmm…. you may be right .My hard disk is under warranty but how can i prove that my hard disk is the culprit as it is working fine now .

    To recover the data is used ” Get Data Back ” software (FAT and NTFS version) , if you want it just tell me .
