Expert hard disk drive (HDD) and external hard drive data recovery service in Singapore
A reputable hard disk drive (HDD) and external hard drive data recovery service has to be your first port of call if you’ve lost crucial data from your computer.
Some minor data loss problems can be fixed by a layman, but restoring lost data from a hard drive is definitely a job for the experts.
So, think carefully before trying a quick fix like dismantling your computer and putting your hard drive in the freezer.
I highly recommend TOTL/Greenergy for data recovery of hard disks. They were fast, friendly, and affordable. I had a 100% excellent experience with them!

Hard drives are prone to data loss
Hard disk drives (HDD) provide non-volatile storage, which keeps data when a computer is switched off. They store computer data magnetically using rigid disks called platters that rotate rapidly. A magnetic head reads and writes data to the surface of the platter.
HDDs are currently grouped into 3 or 4 types:
- PATA – Parallel Advanced Technology Attachment
- SATA – Serial Advanced Technology Attachment
- SCSI – Small Computer System Interface
Hard drives store data through file systems. NTFS (New Technology File System) is now widely used. It’s developed by Microsoft for its Windows platform to replace the FAT (File Allocation Table) system, which can still be found in older versions of Windows.
A professional hard drive recovery centre will be equipped to handle both FAT32 data recovery and NTFS data recovery.
Additionally, hard disks can be combined to form a RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) that uses virtualisation technology to boost the performance and reliability of data storage. RAIDs are commonly found in servers and NAS (network attached storage) appliances in a computer network.
External hard drives
External hard drives are portable or desktop storage devices that come in the form of hard disk drives and universal serial buses (USB). They generally hold large volumes of data and are used as extended or backup storage for computer files.
Similarly, a qualified professional will handle portable or external hard drive data recovery with ease.
Possible causes of hard disk failure
Because a hard disk drive consists of so many moving components, it’s the part of your computer most vulnerable to damage leading to data loss. Damage to a hard drive can be either physical or non-physical.
Physical issues include:
- Disk crashes
- Damaged logic cards
- Damaged platters
- Broken spindles
- Fire and water damage
Non-physical problems include:
- Virus attacks
- Accidental shutdown
- Overwriting of Master File Table (MFT)
- Re-partition of logical drives
How to spot a failing HDD
Typical signs of a hard drive deteriorating are:
- Frequent crashes, particularly when booting up.
- Frequent error messages.
- File names and folders becoming scrambled.
- Long waiting time to access data.
- You can hear the hard drive grinding (damaged bearings).
Important: Stop using your hard drive immediately if you suspect it’s damaged!
When you hear abnormal noises coming out of your hard disk, it’s likely it’s damaged. There’s a chance the read/write head of the drive has crashed thereby causing it to scratch the platter.
If you attempt to access your files in a faulty hard drive, damage on the platter – where data is stored – would worsen. This could result in permanent data loss.
Thus, shut down your PC or network server right away, and contact us to request a diagnosis
