Computers are vulnerable to damage, especially laptops since they are portable. Although manufacturers have taken extra steps to build in protection for hard drives, there is no perfect protection available for hardware or data.
Here are some of the most common causes for data loss:
- Operating System Failure
- Hard Drive Read/Write Head Failure
- Accidental Deletion, Overwrite or Formatting
- Impact Damage
- Moisture Damage
- Hard Drive Electronics Failure

It is difficult to pinpoint exactly what causes a hard drive to fail but most of the time there are warning signs.
