Computer Data Recovery
Data recovery is the process of salvaging or extracting data from an inaccessible, failed or damaged digital storage media, when access by normal or recommended methods is not possible. This can be due to an electronic, mechanical or software failure. Computer data recovery is required when recovering data from digital media such as hard disk drives, multiple disk RAID arrays, tape storage media, solid state media, CD DVD's and any other type of media that may store data which becomes inaccessible.
Although the majority of today's storage media are fast and reliable, the sudden changes in environmental, electrical and mechanical conditions can cause them to become unstable. The additional risk of user error can cause logical or software corruption that can prevent normal access to any stored data. All of these are contributing factors and will normally require computer data recovery to gain access to the data.
The most frequent causes of data loss is due to software corruption normally caused by corrupt operating system installations or system upgrades that cause corruption to stored system data files and changes made to stored data that fails to correctly update the file system. This can happen if partially corrupt or damaged data is written to the file system which is incomplete or incompatible with the files system data structures.
Other causes are if the storage media suffers temporary physical interference during data write operations or if the file system itself becomes unstable because of internal corruption. Although some file systems are able to overcome minor errors, most lead to further serious corruption that require computer data recovery for a complete data recovery solution.
The majority of today's storage media continue working for many years, unfortunately there are those that do not and these are generally the ones that have either been handled incorrectly during transportation or installation or have been running under extreme environmental conditions which can cause component failure, mechanical failure and additional firmware corruption to temperature sensitive electronic components. The most common hard drive faults are due to the electronic disk controller, read/write head or motor failures. These failures can cause serious damage to stored data and will require computer data recovery for a complete data recovery solution.
What happens next
When you are faced with a problem that prevents you access to your data, it can be untimely and very worrying. Unfortunately from our experience most user reactions often leads to further damage and sometimes complete data loss. It is worth mentioning that in all cases it is fundamental to consider and be sure that any tests, fixes, updates or recovery attempts that you try, can be undone again. If not, then you should stop as there is the risk of permanent damage resulting in data loss. It is in your interest to prevent further damage and to seek professional advice before it is too late.
