The data recovery services of TOTL/Greenergy would get your lost computer files back
Our professional computer data recovery services provide the best solution when you’ve lost crucial material from a computer.
A DIY approach to complex data retrieval is likely to end in anguish – the permanent loss of sensitive information, or images of loved ones, for instance.
You may only get one opportunity to get your data back, and the experts give you the best chance of full recovery of all the material you’ve lost.
How data loss can happen
There’re numerous occasions when data loss can occur, some more common than others. Most cases of data loss happen in instances of:
- Files or programs being accidentally deleted
- Files being overwritten
- Hardware failure such as a head crash on a hard drive
- A hard disk drive being formatted
- A power cut resulting in data not being saved to permanent memory (ROM)
- File corruption through software error
- Virus or malware attack on a computer’s operating system
- Theft of devices such as smartphones, laptops, and digital cameras
- Spilling drinks on computers, especially laptops
- Overheating or electrostatic discharge
- Losing storage devices like CDs or memory sticks
Less common instances of data loss arise through:
How you can protect your data
While there’re many causes of data loss, there’re several ways to protect your important information.
Redundant and backup systems
RAID (Redundant Array of Independent [or Inexpensive] Disks) uses virtualisation technology to boost the performance and reliability of data storage. It combines physical disk drive components into one or more logical units. A RAID system comprises two or more drives working in parallel.
An NAS device connects to a network to enable storage of data from a centralised point for authorised clients and network users. NAS stands for Network Attached Storage.
Other forms of backup are provided by USB (universal serial bus) flash drives, CDs and DVDs, and magnetic tape.
The ideal backup system would hold copies of all files and programmes accessible immediately before data loss occurred.
There could also be at least one copy stored off site. Storing backup data in a remote location protects it in the event of a disaster. For example, if a fire destroys your computer, the chances are it’ll also wipe out the external hard drive sitting next to it.
Your lost data is recoverable
Whether your data has been lost through deletion, formatting of a hard drive, or damage to the storage media, it can still be recovered.
A deleted file is generally not overwritten immediately but just has its entry removed from the file system index. In other words, it’s still there although you can’t see it. Your operating system should be able to steer you towards the missing data by tracking every file on your storage.
While it’s possible for a layman to restore deleted files, with the help of, for example, an undelete software product, a formatted hard disk is another story.
Formatting a disk does not erase the data on it, only the data in the address tables, so retrieval of formatted data is possible by professional data recovery services.
Recovery of data from damaged electronic memory devices is similarly possible. In some cases, though, it can be a complex process, particularly if forensic evidence is being sought.
