Hard drive failure will generally render its PC inoperable. This is generally what people are referring to when they say their computer has “crashed”. Hard drives are complex devices, involving many moving components. Just as things will wear out on something like your vehicle, these components fail unexpectedly, making the hard drive inoperable. In other situations, incidents like drops and spills may damage the internal mechanics of the hard drive. Mechanical failures will not deter us, data recovery is still possible in these situations.
