A hard drive failure can be the cause of data loss. One of the most general types of failure is head crash (physical damage of a hard disk). A hard drive failure that results in data loss can be regarded as logical failure and physical failure. Other major reasons for data loss include electro-mechanical failure (hard drive circuit board is damaged), software malfunction, viruses attacks and natural disasters. Your valuable data is retrievable, no matter what the situation.
