The client in this case came to our Seagate hard disk repair specialists when their PC stopped booting. The drive failed a short DST test at startup. And instead of the familiar Windows logo, our client saw a boot error message reading, “No boot disk has been detected or disk has failed.”
The client tried to test the hard drive’s health using SeaTools, Seagate’s hard disk diagnostic software. The drive hadn’t raised any red flags in S.M.A.R.T., the self-testing system hard disk drives use to report on their own status and predict hard drive failures. However, the client’s Seagate hard disk drive still failed any disk self checks.
After checking to see if the hard drive’s SATA connection cables had come loose or worn out to no avail, the client knew that their only chance of retrieving any files lay in the hands of hard drive repair specialists like the ones here at Gillware Data Recovery.
