How Do Hard Drives Lose Data?

While there are a multitude of possibilities, there are four main causes of data loss.

Logical Disk Failure
This occurs when there is no physical damage to your drive; rather selected data has become corrupt. How could this happen? The most common reasons are accidentally reformatting a drive, attacks by a virus (something to always be careful of), partitions that have become lost (not physically, but virtually, or certain crucial files that were accidentally deleted.
Component or Mechanical Failure
Just like parts wear out in your car, this can also happen with a hard drive, the motor can simply stop working or the head can crash. Should this happen, it's likely your data will not be accessible without expert attention.
Failure of Electronics
Electricity (using the correct voltage) is the fuel for your system, should the voltage be wrong, it's nearly a certainty you'll have issues with your hard drive electronics.
Degradation of Media
Occasionally certain sectors of a hard drive may develop bad sectors/areas. When this happens, your hard drive may attempt to read data, but it will be unable to complete it sourcing, resulting in data loss (in most cases this data can be recovered).

What are some of the reasons this happens?

While it's not possible to list every conceivable reason, here are the main ones that can cause data loss.

  • Surges in the current supplying your system.
  • The accidental reformatting of a drive or overwriting crucial files.
  • Viruses that may have been inadvertently downloaded.
  • Actual physical damage, fire, floods, temperatures beyond specs, or sometimes physically dropping or mishandling a drive.
