External/Portable hard drives that plug into your computer via the USB port are the single most broken drive that we see in our service center. While the physical hard drive inside the enclosure is often the same type of drive that can be found inside many computers, external drives are more prone to being bumped or falling over on the desk where they can be easily damaged. Hard drives are relatively stable when powered off but when powered up the hard drive is very fragile highly prone to becoming damaged by even a slight impact with a desk or table.
External hard drive data recovery requires a unique set of specializations given that they are almost always mechanical failures, the drives often have built in encryption and many lack a standardized port from which to plug them in. Many external hard drives also have a very high volume of data that needs to be recovered since it is used entirely as data storage and there is usually no operating system.
