Emergency Data Recovery Tips
As a data recovery service provider, we’re quite aware that every data loss problem is an emergency. Each year, hundreds of businesses find themselves at this data crossroads, whether because of physical damage, hard drive crash or a simple file system corruption.
Many of these businesses lose their data, but a good majority recover it, either with the help of a professional, or with emergency data recovery software. The following tips will help ensure your “hard disk emergency” concludes with a happy ending.
Looking for the right solution to your hard drive/data loss problems can be time-consuming and frustrating. There are numerous companies claiming to offer guaranteed emergency data recovery services, but you should be careful in choosing the right solution for you. First, you should know that some data cannot be recovered. Any technician that guarantees all data will be recovered is not being honest with you.
The Good News In Emergency Situations
The good news is that a lot of data claimed to be lost or damaged can be recovered, and without too much difficulty. Some emergency data recovery attempts are simple because the data was inadvertently deleted, but is not gone from the hard drive. Other, more complex drive recovery problems require more time and effort (as well as a clean room), but our trained technicians have been able to recover lost data where other emergency data recovery services have failed.
For emergency data recovery, we can offer you some useful information on how to proceed. First, you should determine, to the best of your ability, the type of problem you are encountering. In cases where you notice strange sounds emanating from your hard drive, you should immediately turn off your computer and contact a technician.
Grinding and other similar noises may characterize a head failure problem which can destroy your data permanently if not dealt with quickly. Because we are experts in the field and because we understand the importance of restoring your data and system as soon as possible, we can provide 24-hour turnaround emergency data recovery service, the fastest in the industry.
Is your data loss the result of physical hard disk damage?
Typical symptoms of this type of data loss include clicking or buzzing sounds emanating from your hard drive (or computer box). Also, you may encounter what is commonly known to PC users as the “blue screen of death”. This blue screen may occur at odd times, and without warning, even when your hard drive is making no peculiar noises.
Physical Hard Disk Damage
With physical drive damage, you may also find that your drive is “not found” when you attempt to reboot your computer. This may also be accompanied by inactivity (no flickering) by your computer’s drive light.
While this may also be a faulty boot or partition record, in most cases it is physical damage. The best thing to do in this situation is to contact us here.
Disaster Damage And Recovery
Other physical damage is more obvious. In cases of flood, or natural disaster, where your drive has been exposed to the elements, recovering your data will almost always require emergency professional data recovery. If you are in this category, please contact us for a data recovery consultation right away. We can often have your data for you on a new drive within 2-6 days or less, depending on where you are located. We can also upload your data to a private cloud storage drive for easy downloading.
Is your data loss the result of file system corruption or damage, accidental deletion or non-physical drive problems?
When you “lose” files, whether through accidental deletion or boot or partition sector corruption, your files can often be returned quite quickly, with specialized software provided by us.
Typical symptoms of this can be simply a “disappearing file” or an accidentally emptied “recycle bin”. It is likely that your computer still boots (except in cases where your boot record had been compromised), and there are no noises coming from your drive.
In cases like this, your file or data is likely still recoverable. The best thing to do is call a professional quickly. We offer data recovery software which does not save anything to your drive, which is critical in this situation.
Remember: Avoid any data recovery software that requires you to save it to the drive from which you have lost data. Saving anything on to your drive could eliminate the possibility of recovering your lost data!!
A Final Emergency Data Recovery Note
It is important that when you have lost data, you do not do anything rash. Your actions (including rebooting several times, using unapproved “utility software” or saving new files to your drive) greatly affect your data’s recover-ability. Be assured that there are data recovery professionals out there who are qualified to recover your data. Always ensure your are dealing with a professional emergency data recovery technician.
