Accidental format, virus attack, software malfunction, file/directory deletion, unexpected shutdown, sabotage are some of the reasons that contribute to data loss. The problem of data loss can be overcome with the help of a data recovery software. But, even for utilizing this so called easy software properly, one needs a lot of technical know-how. Choosing an improper application, misinterpretation of the problem or one faulty step is enough to render your data irretrievable. Hence, you must exert great caution while recovering your lost data.
There are some basic precautions you must take, once you know that data has been lost. They an be summarized as follows,
- In the event of a hard drive crash or system malfunction, never dismantle the drive or try to fix it yourself. This might lead to permanent erasure of data.
- Never install the recovery software on the same drive as the missing files. This reduces chances of recovering the lost data.
- Run file recovery utilities and not drive repair utilities if you intend to recover your lost files. The repair utility can damage the files since they are meant only for repairing of files and restoring normal settings and not for recovering lost data.
Once these precautions have been taken, get yourself a good data recovery software, to recover all the lost/deleted data from the affected hard drive.
