A hard drive failure occurs when a hard disk drive malfunctions and the stored information cannot be accessed with a properly configured computer.
A disk failure may occur in the course of normal operation, or due to an external factor such as exposure to fire or water or high magnetic waves,
or suffering a sharp impact or environmental contamination, which can lead to a head crash.
WARNING !!! Do not continue to use the drive if you have discovered that files are no longer accessible as you may overwrite the files making recovery more difficult.
Compucare Computer Repair services in Los Angeles cannot stress enough about the importance of the drive's physical and integrity endurance and non-endurance.
These hard drives will not last a life-time. If one is not considering the ability of the drive to maintain itself over time versus the warranty on the device no matter
if "life time warranty" is given, then one is perceiving a misconception.
Consider that hard drive manufacturer's will replace the product BUT NOT THE DATA.
It has been our experience that these hard drives last about three  years with daily/ongoing use.
DO NOT TRY TO ACCESS/USE THE DRIVE IF:
 THE DRIVE MAKES NOISE(S)
 FILES/FOLDERS DISAPPEAR FROM THE DRIVE
 THE DRIVE NO LONGER SHOWS IN WINDOWS EXPLORER
