Mac HDD Problems:
Hard drive failures can be anything from components attached to the hard drive to software malfunctions and corruptions.

We will be able to diagnose the nature of the problem from the information you give us and can help you move forward with the recovery of your data.
Drive Failure When Booting Your Mac:
There are a variety of reasons as to why a Mac won’t boot up. This is where we at Advanced Data Recovery London can help. Starting up your Mac you may see a grey screen with a stop sign (or ‘Prohibitory Sign’). If you encounter this symbol at the boot-up stage there are issues with files on your Mac’s disk that have been moved or deleted in error. If you are greeted with an unfamiliar symbol at start-up and are in any doubt as to what it means for your system, and your data, please contact us here at Advanced Data Recovery London and our experts will be able assist.
Electronic Failure Issues with the Mac Hard Drive:
As with all drives, the drive in an Apple Mac has a printed circuit board (PCB) that allows for information to be passed between it and the other devices it is attached to. It also allows for the hard drive to determine at what speed it should be operating. If this circuit board is damaged then the hard drive and its ability to function correctly are limited if not void altogether and as a result the user may find they are unable to access their data.
Firmware Problems with your Mac Hard Drive:
Within all hard drives the firmware is as important as the hardware that physically makes the reading and writing of data possible. Firmware is an integral part of any device within a computer and as such the damage to firmware can make retrieval of data from the drive impossible. With this in mind we here at Advanced Data Recovery London have helped many Mac users over the last 15 years with the retrieval of the data from their hard drive when the firmware has ceased to operate properly.
When your Mac Hard Drive Suddenly Freezes on you, or Stalls:
There may be occasions when the reading and writing of data to the drive of your Mac becomes impaired as a result of bad sectors. As the operating system is stored on the hard drive any major problems can render the operating system useless and may also prevent the hard drive from being accessed. If this happens it may seem like a good idea to reinstall your OS but we would advise against this as it usually involves formatting your hard drive. Although formatting your hard drive may allow it to function it will almost certainly cause the complete loss of your data. Contact us as soon as you discover conflicts between the Apple Mac’s OS and your hard drive and we will have one of our engineers talk you through your options and how to best secure your data.
