Data Recovery is the process of recovering your valuable data from different kinds of storage mediums. The best way to handle data recovery is be prepared properly. Even with the latest hard drive technology, data loss can happen. The first and foremost suggestion and solution is to setup a data back-up schedule.
However, this highly recommended step is simply neglected or not known by many of us. This can result all too often in situations where data is no longer accessible.
Data loss can occur due to several reasons. Depending upon severity, data recovery success can be determined. If storage medium most commonly on your hard drives, and external hard drives are physically damaged it can be very difficult to recover data. In most of the cases, the data cannot be accessed due to simple hard drive failure, read/write head crash, accidental deletion, data corruption, physical damage and many other possible reasons.
In all those scenarios, your data can be recovered safely by using the latest tools and techniques. However, you have to be very careful as the improper attempt might result in loss of data permanently. By trying to access the data continuously after hard drive failure, the situation will get worse. In our experience we have several clients who have tried to recover or repair hard drives that have been damaged which inadvertently can cause more damage and corruption to files than initially was the case.
So you have to know what some of the symptoms are when files cannot be opened. Some instances will come up with damaged error message; your PC may be making strange rattling sounds while attempting to access the files, the computer may take an infinite amount of time to respond for your request to access files, or your data is simply not where you had it saved and cannot be found. This is a clear indication that your data has been corrupted or lost due to one of the above mentioned reasons mostly and in some rare situation it could be because of very rare problems that have led to the loss.
Nevertheless, some of the solutions worthwhile trying are shutting down the entire pc and re-booting the pc, and try to clean any dust if you notice on the hard drive, making sure there are no viruses which might also restrict your access to your data. However we recommend employing the last solution if you are an expert and know how to use particular software configurations and commands to communicate properly with your PC or Laptop.
So depending upon data loss, the appropriate method should be followed in an attempt to recover the data. Logical data recovery technique is employed for any corrupted data or for virus attacks. This technique works absolutely fine when there is no physical damage to your storage medium. Fragmentation is another technique recommended for accidental file deletions. A deleted file is still available on the hard disk assuming the file size is smaller than cluster size.
Extracting/Recovering data from physically damaged medium is not always possible and requires a lot of time and technique. The technology used to recover data from physically damaged hard drive is MFM (Magnetic Force Microscope). This method involves scanning platters in the hard disk inch by inch for recovering data. And bear in mind, this is very time consuming process.
