Logical recovery is the most common type of recovery needed.
A logical recovery is when work is performed on a copy of the raw data from the damaged unit. The intention is to repair damages to the file system or files, and to make the files available to the customer.
This type of recovery is needed for: unintentionally deleted files, file systems that have lost their structure, drives that have been formatted over with a new files system, drives that have been wiped, or most commonly when there are many damaged sectors and the drive can't be read because the operating system will not boot up.
Physical recovery is required only in extreme cases where the drive itself is damaged physically. This can happen when a drive is dropped hard, or when a motor or head fails. Drives that require physical recover may be completely dead, and won't work at all.
