Bad Sectors in Hard Drives is the most common problem occurrence that leads to hard drive failure. Bad sectors occur as result of age, wear and tear, as well as physical shock. It is a normal occurrence simply because of the physics and chemistry elements involved with the design and manufacturing of the device, as well as the type of usage by the end user, whether it is a home user, corporate environment with regular servers or data centers. A typical life span of a drive is 2 to 5 years on average. Depending on whether the hard drive is used rarely as in a once a week backup procedure or around the clock 24/7 in data center servers, a hard drive can last longer or shorter period of time. Another important aspect is the quality of the drive, such as those designed for home use versus enterprise level usage. Regardless of type, all drive devices will develop bad sectors in their lifetime. In order to successfully perform data recovery on a hard drive that sustained bad sectors failure, proper advanced data recovery equipment is necessary. To maximize chances of file recovery, find a data recovery specialist who can perform the relevant bad sectors detection tests.
