#1 — That doesn’t sound right
Modern storage drives are manufactured to very high tolerances, especially hard disk drives (HDDs). Despite having platters that rotate at thousands of rpm and arms that flick back and forth in milliseconds, today’s HDDs are designed to be near silent in their operation.
You might be able to hear faint whirring and clicking as the drive is working, but that’s all — so anything louder than that, is a sign that things are not well (or that it’s just an old design). And if you hear any high-pitched metallic noises, loud or otherwise, then the drive will probably be damaged inside.
The guts of a modern HDD
Don’t ignore such signs: the drive may seem to be functioning perfectly well, but it’s only a matter of time before it will fail outright. There’s nothing you can do about it, other than backup all of the important data on it, as soon as possible, and then replace the drive with a new one.
Optical storage drives, such as DVD-ROM or Blu-ray disc drives, are a lot noisier than HDDs, when they’re working — you should definitely hear something when it’s spinning the disc, but this should just be the whine of the electric motors and whoosh of the air, being moved by the disc.
But since they’re built with looser tolerances than hard disk drives, they will wear out quicker (this is balanced by the fact that they’re not used very often). Classic signs to listen out for are loud clicks, buzzing sounds, or the storage disc just constantly spinning up and down.
Fortunately, as data is stored on a removable storage medium, a noisy drive shouldn’t cause any data losses. That said, with continued use in this state, the drive could fail in such a way as to damage the disc. As with HDDs, should your optical storage drive start making loud or odd sounds, don’t ignore it — replace the unit as soon as you can.
Of course, not all storage systems contain mechanical, moving parts. Devices that use flash memory, such as SD cards, USB memory sticks, and solid state drives (SSDs), are just a collection of chips on a circuit board. Needless to say, you shouldn’t hear anything from these.
Nothing here should be making a sound!
So if your old SSD is making any kind of noise, it’s more likely to be another part in the computer that’s doing it. Either that, or you’ve got a small pest problem inside your computer!
Whatever storage drives you have in your system, you should never ignore any unusual sounds coming from it — it could well be electrical noise or a fan that’s seen better days, but if it’s not, then don’t delay in tackling the issue. Backup the data that’s on it and replace it as soon as you can.
PS5 vs PS5 Digital Edition: specs
Here are the full official PS5 specs straight from Sony, including differences for both editions where noted. The two PS5 models are identical in terms of performance, a big difference compared to the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, which are much further apart in price. The only difference is that the more expensive PS5 console will have an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive – otherwise they use the same custom processor, and feature the same 825GB SSD.
CPU: x86-64-AMD Ryzen Zen 2, 8 Cores / 16 Threads, variable frequency, up to 3.5 GHz
GPU: AMD Radeon™ RDNA 2-based graphics engine, Ray Tracing Acceleration, variable frequency, up to 2.23 GHz (10.3 TFLOPS)
System Memory: GDDR6 16GB/448GB/s Bandwidth
Optical drive (base unit only): Ultra HD Blu-ray (66G/100G)
SSD: 825GB, 5.5GB/s Read Bandwidth (Raw)
PS5 Game Disc: Ultra HD Blu-ray, up to 100GB/disc
Video out: HDMI OUT port, support of 4K 120Hz TVs, 8K TVs, VRR (specified by HDMI ver.2.1)
Audio: Tempest 3D AudioTech
Dimensions: PS5: Approx. 390mm x 104mm x 260mm (width x height x depth)(excludes largest projection, excludes Base)
PS5 Digital Edition: Approx. 390mm x 92mm x 260mm (width x height x depth)(excludes largest projection, excludes Base)
Weight: PS5: 4.5kg
PS5 Digital Edition: 3.9kg
Power: PS5: 350W
PS5 Digital Edition: 340W
Input/output: USB Type-A port (Hi-Speed USB)USB Type-A port (Super-Speed USB 10Gbps) x2, USB Type-C port (Super-Speed USB 10Gbps)
Networking: Ethernet (10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, 1000BASE-T)IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/ax, Bluetooth 5.1
As mentioned, the solid state drive included with both consoles is the same, offering users 825GB of storage with a raw 5.5GB/s throughput (and up to 9GB/s worth of compressed data). You only get 667.2GB of usable storage, though, so space is it a premium. There’s a minor difference in weight and dimensions between the PS5 and its Digital Edition, but other than that they’re identical.
The PS5 runs off the third-generation AMD Ryzen chipset, with eight cores and the manufacturer’s new Zen 2 architecture and Navi graphics. On the visual side, the GPU features 36 compute units running at 2.23GHz and offering 10.28TFLOPs, while the PS5 packs 16GB of GDDR6 RAM with a bandwidth of 448GB/s. The console can pull off ray tracing – that is, advanced lighting that used to be the sole domain of pricey PC graphics cards. Expect fancy reflections in the games you love as a result of this addition.
3D audio is also a big part of the PS5’s offering, no matter which edition of the console you own – immersive 3D audio is powered by the Tempest Engine, which translates sound sources into the hundreds to create realistic audio.
The PS5 can support up to 8K resolution (though not until a firmware update arrives), which many players won’t need on their 1080p TVs. Whether games will run natively in 8K is more of a question mark (we assume only the least graphically intensive titles will), but it means the console is future-proofed if you decide to buy a nicer TV down the line. In addition, the PS5 supports 120Hz refresh rates, allowing you to enjoy smoother games if they offer a higher framerate if you have a HDMI 2.1 compliant TV.
Most games won’t max out these possibilities in the short term – indeed, Spider-Man: Miles Morales offers a 60fps performance mode, which dials back visual effects to hit a higher framerate than the PS4’s usual 30fps.
Both consoles include a single wireless PS5 DualSense controller, which features adaptive triggers and haptic feedback that helps elevate the feeling of realism in your games.
Both consoles can also play PS4 games (although any physical copies you own won’t work on the PS5 Digital Edition), and you’ll be able to buy an external HDD for additional storage to play these older titles so you conserve the SSD space for PS5 software. You can’t store or play PS5 games from any external hard drives or SSDs yet, however.
Estimating Data Recovery Chances
Not all data loss scenarios are equally serious. Some can be addressed with ease using just about any data recovery software, while others are impossible to solve even by well-equipped professionals.
️ Recycle Bin
The Recycle Bin folder in Windows is a special temporary storage area for deleted files, and its purpose is to guarantee complete recoverability. As such, the recovery chances of any files found in the Recycle Bin are as high as they get.
❌ File deletion
In many cases, deleted files remain on the storage from which they were deleted long after their deletion, making it possible to recover them using data recovery software. The only exception is if they were deleted from a solid-state drive (SSD) with the TRIM feature enabled.
Regular formatting is usually quick because it merely marks the partition as empty without actually deleting the files stored on it, which means that you can recover them using data recovery software. Of course, that’s not possible if you format a partition securely, overwriting its content at least one time with new data.
✂️ Data corruption
When files become corrupted, they may be impossible to open, but that doesn’t automatically make them impossible to recover. It all depends on the extent of the corruption and the nature of the corrupted file (it’s much easier to recover a corrupted image than a corrupted .exe file).
There are many nasty strains of malware that can make important files disappear or become impossible to open. Addressing malware-caused data loss is sometimes possible using the combination of anti-malware and data recovery software, but the success rate is impossible to estimate without having more information about the specific malware infection.
️ Physical damage
It’s not possible to recover data from physically damaged storage devices that can’t be recognized by Windows without repairing the damage first, which is something that can rarely be done at home.
The latest version of Disk Drill can estimate recovery chances to give you a general idea of how likely can found files be successfully recovered. We recommend you use this feature to focus your attention on files whose recovery chances are high.
