Troubleshooting Hard Disk Drives
This section includes troubleshooting information for a wide variety of hard disk problems. Hard disk problems can range from outright failure to data corruption to problems with setup. Since they are so important--they hold your main data--hard disk problems can be particularly unnerving, and I have tried to include as much information as possible to help you with problems related to them.
Tip: You should not
hesitate to contact your hard disk drive manufacturer's technical support department if
you need them. In my experience these companies have above-average technical support, and
there are sometimes problems specific to certain kinds of drives that I do not know about
and therefore are not listed here.
Please choose the category best describing the problem you are having.
