When your Synology External Hard Drive does not Meet Performance Criteria:
Synology External hard drives can be incredibly powerful, and very effective in helping you store lots of data efficiently. When they go wrong this can be for a variety of reasons. You may find, for example, that you can hear clicking noises or grinding noises, and these sounds are indicative of a serious problem. If any of this is experienced, it’s important that you contact a professional data recovery service. In this section we will look at the most common problems that occur with Synology external hard drives:
Synology Mechanical Failures and External Hard Drives:
Synology Mechanical failures are quite distressing, because they often result in noises, like beeping or clicking noises. A beeping or buzzing sound normally tells you that the motor within the hard drive has failed. When a clicking noise occurs this is often the result of a knock or a fall that the external hard drive has suffered. In our experience, clicking noises are the most common type of fault. However, we enjoy high success rates in dealing with clicking Synology hard drives.
Electronic Failures with your Synology External Hard Drive:
On occasion, a power spike or power surge can occur in the building. This can mean that there is an immediate electronic failure within the Synology external hard drive. This can result in lost data. We have vast experience in this area, and can retrieve your data for you.
Firmware Issues with your Synology External Hard Drive:
A computer uses firmware to communicate with a Synology hard disk drive. However, the codes that help facilitate firmware operations are found on data platters. These can be damaged, and then the hard disk drive will literally just shut down. We have recovered data on many occasions from corrupted hard disk drives with firmware issues.
Poor Performance Issues with your Synology External Hard Drive:
Like many electrical components, Synology external hard drives can degrade over time. This is most commonly found when the sectors on a hard drive disk become corrupt. The hard drive will struggle to allocate the sectors, which can lead to lost data. We have significant expertise in ensuring that this data is recovered.
