Logical Hard Drive Failure
The computer hard drive is not broken with a logical hard drive failure. The hard drive data architecture is there, but the hard drive can’t read and sort data properly.
The logical hard drive failure can mainly be pinpointed to human error like accidental file movement. Your hard drive can crash if you accidentally delete, move or overwrite software system files.
Mechanical Hard Drive Failure
This occurs when a hard drive is physically abused. Think of a laptop that’s just thrown on a couch or dropped on the floor. Mechanical failure also occurs in desktop drives mostly due to age of the drive. There is a problem with the internal components of the hard drive. You will usually hear a clicking noise when the computer is on.
If you hear a clicking sound when you turn on a laptop that has just suffered from a nasty fall, chances are that you have broken the integrity of your hard disk drive.
