It’s easy to send the hard drive from one place to another place. But there may be certain failures occur to your hard drive due to the improper package. It leads to physical damage or any other damages during shipment. So to avoid those additional damages our Seagate data recovery professionals will guide you on how to pack your failure hard drives for data recovery.
STEP 1 : Please place your hard drive in an anti-static bag or Cover to avoid ESD or static electricity to damage during transit.
STEP 2 : Wrap each hard drive individually with a few layers of bubble wrap. If there are multiple drives please wrap them each individually.
STEP 3 : Place Hard drive inside a Box made of either Thermocol or Corrugated / Cardboard.
Choose a box that is in good shape, and fits the size of the hard drive with bubble wrap cover leaving a few inches of space on all sides. Make sure the drive is secure inside the box. Put more bubble wrap or crumpled paper around the drive as necessary to stop it from moving around.
Be sure the padding material is at least two inches thick around the drive. If you are shipping a portable hard drive please include the entire enclosure.
STEP 4 : Next, Tape the box up securely and attach the mailing label with address and contact details outside the box. You need to send your hard drive to the below address : No.102, L.B. Road, Baktavatsalam Nagar, Adyar, Chennai - 600020. (Contact : Mr. Vijayan - 9841983643)
STEP 5 : And finally, choose good Courier company who can handle hard drives safely.
Wrap your flash drive and its pieces in a couple layers of bubble wrap to secure it. Wrapping it in bubble wrap will keep it from potential further damage and sliding around inside the box. Padded envelopes are not adequate, and may not provide enough protection for the circuit board or memory chips during shipping. For CD / DVD, the package can be done with envelope available for CD/DVD Mailer for safety.
If your drive has suffered water damage, please do not dry it. Enclose the drive along with a damp sponge in a sealed plastic bag to prevent it from drying out. Recovery is more likely if our engineers receive the drive before it has dried.
For Multiple Hard drives, above 3 Hard drives can be packed in the following manner in multiple hard drive cardboard box.
DO NOT use foam peanuts, cloth, paper or newspaper or padded envelopes. When shipping more than one hard drive, ensure that the hard disks do not touch and are cushioned individually.
Use a corrugated cardboard box for the exterior packaging. Use of a traceable carrier that can provide proof of delivery is strongly recommended.
