There are a number of reasons a hard drive can fail. A power surge or short from a liquid spill can fry the printed circuit board (PCB). You can have mechanical failure through no fault of your own or you can damage the drive from a sudden shock or fall. When a disk drive is failing you can cause more damage and reduce the chances of recovery if you continue to use the drive. A well intentioned friend or even a computer repair technician can cause more damage too. To find out more does and don’ts please read Hard Drive Data Recovery Best Practices .
