All computers will fail someday, be prepared!

harddriveWhile the best defense against data loss is redundant and real-time backup, we understand that sometimes data loss sneaks right up on you. Whether your vacation pictures didn’t make it safely from your camera to your computer or a bumbling roommate deleted the paper you’ve been working all week on, having emergency data recovery tools in handy is crucial to getting your data back before it’s gone forever. Also have an RI Data Recovery team you know and trust is also important.

Why do harddrives Fail?

Understanding hard drive failure is important because it is the largest Non-Damaged harddrivesingle explanation for data loss. Hard drive failure may be related to mechanical, electronic, or firmware failures. Mechanical failures occur when physical components of the device itself begin to wear or malfunction. Electronic failures occur when the printed circuit board (PCB) begins to produce errors. 

Firmware is the controlling software that is built into the hardware device itself stored on disk platters of the drive. Like most software in use today, firmware may become damaged or corrupt over time. This is a very common failure for modern drives because of the complexity of firmware design.

Some software you can try to recover lost data in RI?

Recuva is a user-friendly Windows-based tool. When you run  , you can resurrect missing files using either the file-recovery wizard or the application’s manual mode. The file-recovery wizard is handy when you’re sure your data is gone but you’re not quite sure where it went or how to get it back. The wizard lets you narrow your search type to pictures, music, documents, video, or all files, and you can set the search location to everywhere on your computer, removable media only, in My Documents, the Recycle Bin, or a specified location.

If you don’t need the wizard you can jump right into manual mode and get to work searching where you know the file should be. Recuva uses a green/yellow/red light system to indicate how probable the recovery of your files will be, and when available, it can provide previews image files available for recovery. Recuva also includes a tool to securely wipe files you find, handy if you’re attempting a file recovery just to ensure the files are actually dead and gone.

Some times it’s best to let the professional’s handle it, especially if it’s important data!
