Dying Hard Drives

Hard Drives are one of the most common components to fail in a computer.

Hard Drives are one of the most common components to fail in a computer. This is due to the design, they constantly spin at a fast rate and eventually will fail. Hard Drives however will naturally produce a sound because of the rotation of the disks inside, this will be a slight hum which is normal. Sometimes you can tell if a hard drive is on its way out by the unusual sound it will make, this will be more than a slight hum and you'll potentially hear a ticking or whine.

Once you hear these unusual sounds coming from your drive it's time to take action quickly, it's likely your hard drive will fail soon, it's probably a good idea to back up any data on the hard drive as soon as possible and to use the hard drive as little as possible as it can fail at any time. Once the drive fails it's going to take all your programs and data with it, the best thing to do is to buy a replacement hard drive and clone the contents of the original onto the new one, while you can.

At Circuittrade we can offer you the service of cloning your data onto a new hard drive before your original one fails, prices start from £45, please contact us for more information:
