No One Schedules Data Loss
Data loss comes in many forms including file deletion, power failure, and hard drive failure. No matters its cause, the effects are less than pretty. Data loss can leave you scrambling, attempting to create documents, locate files, and recover what’s missing. How can you locate missing files or recover deleted folders properly?
Data recovery is an option and can be effective when employed properly. First, it’s essential to understand the different forms of data loss.
Sources of Data Loss
Not all data loss is created equal. Something as simple as failing to plug in your charger can cause you to lose your files. Likewise, a natural disaster can leave your hard drive in pieces. Here are some of the more common sources of data loss:
File or folder deletion
Did you empty the recycle bin without checking its contents first? Or delete the wrong file? File or folder deletion is a common source of data loss. All hope is not lost, however. Until you overwrite the file with another, the deleted files will remain on your drive.
File recovery software can help you get back what seemed forever gone. For your best chance of success, avoid DIY-ing the matter, and have one of SYGVNS Integrated Solutions’ IT professionals resolve the problem.
File system format error or damage
When you change the format of a file system, any previous information and files on the disk are destroyed. This occurs when the information on the storage is overwritten with new information.
Any sort of physical malfunction that occurs within the electronic circuits or electromechanical components can cause hardware failure. This sort of damage is best resolved by IT professionals as poorly executed recovery methods can result in permanent and total data loss.
Corrupted operating systems and partition tables can lead to file corruption. The total damage depends on the level of corruption, but recovery is possible with the help of a trained technician.
Develop a Data Recovery Plan
A data recovery plan helps you to expect the unexpected and be prepared when disaster strikes. Your best bet is to begin by reducing all sources of unnecessary risk. To do so, you’ll need to ensure that data is encrypted, files are protected via off-site cloud backup, and best practices regarding virus and malware protection are followed.
However, there are some matters that are completely out of your control. A data recovery plan should be utilized alongside your disaster recovery plan as they function in quite similar ways. Your data recovery plan should include ways to locate and restore data in case of loss. Your disaster recovery plan should focus on methods to resume operations and reduce negative effects after a catastrophe.
