Experience with Toshiba Data Recovery

Toshiba DT01ABA200V hard drive

Outsource Knows Toshiba

Outsource has successfully repaired or performed data recovery on thousands of Toshiba hard drives. We are also partners with Donor Drives, the largest provider of Toshiba donor hard drives and PCBs, so we have immediate access to almost any part or donor drive imaginable in order to complete your project quickly.

Outsource is able to successfully repair or recover nearly nine out of ten projects we receive, including the common failures of Toshiba drives you see below. This rate is among the best in the industry, and we offer a True No-Data, No-Charge Guarantee for your Toshiba data recovery: If we cannot recover your data, you will not pay any service fee!

PCB Issues

Failed PCB or Firmware Issues

Toshiba hard drive failure can result from many causes. Check out our video on identifying common hard drive failures. One of the most common causes of failure for Toshiba drives is a burnt circuit board, or PCB. This can be caused by a power surge or other sudden electrical impact. If your drive does not spin up, or if you smell smoke coming from the hard drive, these can be signs of a burnt circuit board, which should be repaired as soon as possible.

Replacing a Failed PCB

If this is the issue, you can try to repair your drive by replacing the PCB. Make sure to use this donor matching guide for data recovery to increase the chances of compatibility. For instance, you should use a replacement PCB from the same model and PCB revision. Also, check out the video to the right for some tips on trying to replace the circuit board. Don’t want to attempt this yourself? Outsource offers a $60 Hard Drive Repair Service, which includes PCB replacement or repair with parts and labor!

Other Common Problems with Toshiba Drives

Clicking Drive

If your drive is clicking, power it down immediately! This could be a sign of a mechanical issue, such as a head crash.

Bad Sectors

Bad sectors generally signify surface damage, degrading magnetic head reading capabilities, or the end of life of the hard drive.

Seized Spindle

Generally caused by significant physical force, a seized spindle requires replacement of the spindle or transfer of the platters.

Translator

Corruption of system area translator modules results in loss of data access and requires a “hot swap”.
