The quality of external hard drives has diminished leaving no fault tolerance or room for error. Modern external hard drives have been redesigned for capacity and low cost resulting in very unreliable storage media.

Professional data recovery on these types of drives has turned into an advanced practice where extreme caution should be used choosing a laboratory capable of handling these new challenges. While 50% of this type of drive fails within five years of use statistically speaking, the most common cause of failure is from a slight bang or drop. If any unprofessional tampering is performed to the media drive after this point the chances of recovery drastically decrease.
