Data Recovery

When You've Lost It - How to Recover Your Lost Data

When using their computers, most people don't even consider the chance that in the blink of an eye, all your files could be appear to be gone. That's when most people learn the term "data recovery".

The need for data recovery can arise due a myriad of reasons such as physical damage to the hard drive itself, or damage to CDs, DVDs and disks.

If you have backed up your information using internal methods of storing your data, or if you have chosen to use a remote backup service such as online backup, you won't have nearly the same problem recovering your data than if you solely relied on your computer's hard drive for holding all your important data and information.

If you are unable to recover your data yourself, another alternative for recovery of your data is a professional data recovery company. Most of these firms use clean room facilities to protect your media while the data recovery and/or repairs are made. A clean room facility is exactly what it sounds like: it's a room free of dust, debris and static, and it usually has tools available such as magnetometers to read most types of magnetic media.

There are two types of damage that commonly occur, physical damage and logical damage. Physical damage is where a drop, hit, or other physical impact or incident has directly affected your computer's hard drive or the storage of your information. Logical damage is more common, and is usually the result of a power surge orcorrupted files. Logical damage is responsible for most system crashes and data recovery operations.

Most computers come with simple programs for data recovery, but sometimes that may not be enough. To help avoid having to go through a data recovery for your files, start backing up your information and important data on a regular basis and consider investing in a good UPC battery that will not only protect your computer from power surges, it will also give you time for a proper shutdown of your system to help you avoid a data recovery situation.
