A common sense approach and a regular backup system are key ways to avoid the worst of data loss when it does happen.
Individuals and businesses are in need of data recovery services every day.
Hard drives fail and people cannot get on their computer. Breakfasts are eaten over laptops, leading to hot coffee spills. Rushing professionals drop devices all the time, damaging the internal components.
Believe it or not, the best thing to do in these circumstances is not to try to turn the device back on, as this can actually make the original damage much worse.
Hard drives particularly can be damaged by enthusiastic amateurs attempting recovery.
It is often best to leave this to someone experienced or a professional to avoid vital or essential data being lost forever.
Workers should also be advised of the warning signs of a failing hard drive, including whirring and knocking noises.
Data is at the core of most modern businesses. Kroll Ontrack provides services and software to help you better manage key data such as MS Exchange and SharePoint.
