Seagate Data Recovery
We have successfully recovered data from all Seagate Hard Drive systems including Seagate Model numbers start with "ST". Example Seagate Model numbers include: ST9500325AS, ST380011A, ST3500841AS, ST3160023AS, ST91000430AS, ST9808211A, ST360020A. Over the last few years we have received in a lot of Seagate 7200.10. Seagate 7200.11 and Seagate 7200.12 hard disk units. These drives suffer from firmware problems which can lead to internal mechanical damage.
Be a case of formatting the wrong hard disk, deleting data, virus attack, operating system not booting, data deletion, or a more complex case of raid rebuild failed, degraded volume, mechanical failure, electronic failure from a power surge, Easy Recovery can successfully recover all your data from your Sata Hard Drive. We pride ourselves on how quick we perform our services, our aim is not to meet your expectations but exceed them.
Call us on 0800 075 0720 for a quote from one of our Seagate Data Recovery Engineers. We can normally diagnose the problem with a disk and give a full cost and timescales for recovery via phone. The quote is free with no obligation to proceed.
We offer 3 options for data recovery:
Our pricing is very competitive compared to other UK Data Recovery Companies. Due to the recession we have reduced our pricing to reflect the current climate. This means you can get a 1st class data recovery service for a great price. We can recover from hard disks that have:

Seagate Data Recovery
Seagate hard drives are the most commonly used and manufactured hard drives throughout the world. The company has a reputation for providing excellent devices, but as with any hard drive there is the risk of problems, associated with a number of common causes. Seagate drives are often used in Apple MacBook computers, which is one of the most popular and widely sold computer in the world.
One particular type of hard drive manufactured by Seagate—the Barracuda—is known by data recovery specialists to have more problems than other Seagate hard drives. With the Barracuda drives, a new technology was introduced that involved the coating of platters for the purpose of protecting the magnetic layer. While this was intended to provide protection, in actuality the coating began to flake in many of the devices, which then stuck to the read/write heads, making data inaccessible.
In addition to this manufacturing problem, other problems commonly experienced with Seagate devices include:
Also referred to as media degradation, bad sectors can lead to the inaccessibility of data from a Seagate hard drive. If the drive hits a bad sector, commonly the result is a loud noise being emitted from the device, such as a scratching or clicking sound.
Electronic failures are typically due to a few common reasons, including plugging power supplies into external hard disks, PSUs that are faulty in desktop computers and damage from water.
Circuit Board Damage
Damage to the components on a Seagate circuit board can occur for a number of reasons, including overheating, power spikes and power surges. If a power streak occurs in conjunction with a bad power supply unit, the result can often be a burned SMOOTH chip on the logic board. If this occurs, the user will probably notice a strong smell, and the system will either shut down or reboot on its own.
A seized motor is a frequently occurring problem with Seagate models 7200.10 and 7200.11. A seized motor can likely be the result of knocking or dropping the device while it is operational. Any impact that a hard drive incurs can result in a seized motor. When this happens, the failure of the hard drive can be immediate, or it can occur gradually over a period of time. Once the motor of a Seagate drive is completely seized, the user will probably hear a faint buzzing or humming sound when attempting to turn the device on. Motor seizure is a complex problem that likely can’t be solved without the correct equipment, so if this does occur, the best course of action is to shut down the machine immediately and contact a data recovery service.
Issues with Read/Write Heads
Another problem commonly experienced with Seagate hard drives involves the read write heads. Failure of the read write heads can be attributable to a variety of causes, including a build-up of detritus on the head slider or a physical failure of some type. When a problem with the heads occurs in a Seagate hard drive, the problem is typically easily fixed and all data recovered with the use of our data recovery services.
