Don’t unplug your hard drive whilst it’s still busy

On January 20, 2016, in Storage News, by Nick Parsons

We all know about the ‘safely eject’ option for our external hard drives and flash drives. Some of us joke that ‘life is too short to safely eject’ which, although funny, could hold some dire consequences. As a hard drive operates the platters spin at a few thousand revolutions per minute whilst the heads fly […]

False senses of data security and how to avoid data recovery

On April 26, 2014, in Storage News, by Nick Parsons

Some people believe that their data will be safe as long as they look after their hard drive. This caring for their data can be in the form of buying a more reliable hard drive, ensuring the hard drive or laptop is locked away or always within site, or purchasing rugged storage such as an […]

What happens when I drop my hard drive

On March 24, 2014, in Storage News, by Nick Parsons

We deal with all sorts of different cases where a client’s hard drive is in need of data recovery. Hard drives can, and do, fail for a number of reasons. There are different ways of categorising hard drive failures, but let’s look at instances where a drive suffers what is known as ‘media damage’ or […]

Clean environments for data recovery

On November 18, 2013, in Storage News, by Nick Parsons

People have different ideas about what happens when they book their hard drive in for data recovery. Some clients think that their hard drive is merely plugged into a machine and a button is pushed, others have the idea that we remove the platters and read them on some sort of universal hard drive reader. […]

If you need storage space and security implement a NAS RAID

On July 29, 2013, in Storage News, by Nick Parsons

If you’re in a position where you need to store large amounts of data, need it readily available and can’t afford any downtime then you should consider a NAS setup in RAID configuration. The joy of a NAS is that the data is accessible over the network, hence the name ‘network attached storage’. Your users […]

SSD drives and data backup

On June 20, 2013, in Storage News, by Nick Parsons

Just because you have an SSD doesn’t mean you should skimp on your data backup regime. SSD drives do fail, and when they do the chances of recovery are less than that of data recovery on conventional hard drives. The technology used in SSD drives, the controllers and NAND chips, means that when a problem […]

Seagate announces consumer SSD drive

On May 9, 2013, in Storage News, by Nick Parsons

Seagate have announced their first consumer SSD drives. They are now the producers of HDDs, hybrid drives and SSDs. The new range, labelled the 600 SSD, will be available in capacities of up to 480GB.

Hard drive capacity to double in 10 years

On March 5, 2013, in Storage News, by Nick Parsons

In ten years time we should see hard drive capacity double, says Hitachi. More specifically, the density of storage platters. A new technology, nanotechnology, will be used to manufacture hard drive platters with roughly double the current density, which is 1TB per platter for new 3.5″ hard drives. The new technology uses various new methods […]

SSD – Not as safe as you think

On February 11, 2013, in Storage News, by Nick Parsons

We are hearing more and more talk of SSD drives, how their performance makes a normal spinning hard drive feel sluggish and hopelessly slow. This is no lie, as upgrading your OS drive to an SSD will be the biggest performance enhancing factor you can get your hands on for relatively little money. As with […]

6TB hard drives are coming

On December 7, 2012, in Storage News, by Nick Parsons

TDK are in the proccess of creating a new read/write head that uses thermal assisted recording. What this means for areal density is that the current density of 1Tbit/square inch will increase to 1.5Tbit/square inch. The price of SSDs is still coming down and their performance is unbeatable when compared to normal hard disk drives. […]
