So you have just completed a successful data recovery session with Disk Drill for Mac or Windows from a damaged external drive. Thank you for using our data recovery apps, btw. Now you may ask yourself if you should continue using that drive, reformat it, repartition it, or it’s not worth risking your data again.
If you ask us, the developers of Disk Drill, we would probably say NO. However, it all depends on the nature of the damage of the drive: was it a hardware failure, is it still spinning, do you see any repeating symptoms of the damage? Was it just a software failure or even just a user error?
In simple words, if the drive’s hardware caused data loss, we don’t recommend using it again for any data storage. If it was something on a user level, you should decide yourself, but probably the drive is safe to use.
Again, thank you.
