How to Fix Hard Disk Errors
Hard drive damage should immediately follow a hard drive repair to prevent another occurrence. Bad sectors on the magnetic disks need be checked and a change of the hard drive will be done since the bad sectors cannot be corrected. At times we may ignore feedback from the computer and this information and action needed upon it may later cost you dearly. Once you have detected that your hard drive has a problem especially a logical error, you will need to repair hard drive on time but before that you will need to back up your data in order to avoid further data loss if there was any.
It is important to know that a hard drive repair will not repair bad sectors and that bead sectors are irreparable. In case your machine reports a bad sector you may need to change the hard drive immediately before the problem continues to get aggravated.
There was a time when people with the old model computers would repair the hard drive by putting the hard drive in the freezer. Somehow the freezer would start working due to temperature change. Nowadays if you try that on a hard disk the only advice I could give is to damp it in the dust bin immediately you take it out of the freezer, dig into your pocket and buy a new hard drive. The reason bring that the new hard drives that come with the current models of computers are very delicate and cannot endure such a crude hard drive repair.
During those early times also people could also heat the hard drive and quickly rush to insert in the computer. This method also would at times work just for the same reason- temperature change and in this case due to the heating effect on the magnetic disks. It is important though that if your hard drive needs repair you will need seek help from an expert or use the software tool to repair it if it is repairable.
