TOTL can get back your lost data on storage media
Electronic storage systems are just as vulnerable as computers when it comes to data loss, and retrieving that material can be just as difficult.
Caches of photographs and videos of friends and family, your favourite music and films, and important documents can all seemingly vanish in the blink of an eye.
Types of storage media
Storage media in common use include SD cards, USB flash drives, and magnetic tape – none of them are foolproof.
- SD (secure digital) cards store data in a flash memory system across a variety of electronic devices, especially phones and digital cameras. These memory cards can be used to upload or back up files, expand storage capacity, and transfer data to another device.
- USB (universal serial bus) flash drives have replaced floppy disks for storing, transferring, and backing up data.
- Magnetic tape is a storage medium for data collection, backup, and archiving – typically used by medium to large enterprises. The tape was originally in the form of open reels, which have been superseded by cassettes and cartridges.
How data loss can occur on storage media
File corruption leading to data loss is a common problem with SD cards and USB drives, whereas data on tape can be lost through human error and software and hardware issues.
There’re cases where backup and original data can be lost simultaneously. For instance, if you keep a storage medium near your computer, they’ll both sustain damage in the event of a fire or flood.
That’s why it’s advisable to store backup data in a remote location.
