Data recovery is the process of recovering data that has been accidentally deleted or has been corrupted by another process. Sometimes this manifests itself in corrupted boot files, while other situations are caused by failed hardware, such as a hard drive head crash or a bad hard disk controller.
Is data recovery software the answer?
In times of a system failure, you're most likely going to be concerned with getting some or all of your data files back. With corrupt files, the risk of you actually losing the data permanently are slim. However, much of this risk depends on what you have done once the problem started. In many cases, running utilities without knowing exactly what you are doing can actually cause further data loss. Be sure you know what you are doing before running any programs. One of the easiest ways to get your data back is to physically remove the drive and install it as a slave drive in another machine. This process is covered in detail on the computer systems recovery page.
In most software based problem scenarios, your data is usually recoverable, however, physical failures present different recovery challenges. With a hard drive failure, such as a physical disk head crash, recovering your data is going to be more complex. Your drive will need to be sent in to a data recovery company for analysis to determine if the data can actually be recovered. Sometimes it can, sometimes it can't, and every case is different. This is why professional hard drive data recovery typically involves use of a clean room facility.
The bottom line is - how valuable is your data? Starting costs for physical data recovery services begins around 1000.00, so you want to be certain that the data you seek to recover is worth the expense. For those carrying out mission critical work, including database design and other critical projects, data recovery may be essential. It just depends on what the data is and what it's worth.
The following list provides some examples of situations when you require data recovery of one type or another. Some of these situations can be solved with recovery software, while others demand in-house data recovery services. Others may simply require you to research methods for recovery, such as access password recovery or excel password recovery.
These are just a few of the
