Steps to Recovery
Data recovery allows recovering of data from spoiled, damaged, corrupted, failed, or unattainable storage media when it cannot be accessed using the normal approach. Geeksnerds recover the data from all sorts of storage media such as hard disk drive, storage tape, flash, PDA, zip drive, CD, DVD, RAID, and other electronics. Data loss can be due to physical damage to the device or logical damage to the file system that prevents it from being usable.
The basic thing which needs to be kept in mind is that when you have lost data then don’t write anything to the damaged area of hard disk drive. Never create another partition incase you have deleted a partition by accident.
If you have deleted files from the recycle bin, then don’t save anything new on the drive as hard drive doesn’t erase anything, not data or partitions. Yeah believe it, it’s a fact. When ever we delete a document or file on any drive then it is merely marked by operating system as having been deleted. So whenever we store something new the system saves the data on the files which have been marked as deleted. The reason for this is that these marked files are considered as being empty spaces.
The same is true for partitions, since partition information just presents the operating system with a way of addressing the space available on the drive.
In a crisis situation when your valuable data has been lost by any factor do make sure that no more data is written to the drive. The best and the quick solution is to back-up your computer.
Data Protection Tips
- Implement software for scanning and checking your disks on a regular basis
- Avoid unauthorized access to the mission critical folders by locking these folders
- Use more than one tape to back-up data because a small saving on tapes is often made at the expense of data worth thousands
- Contact Geeksnerds as soon as possible in case of data loss.
