Data Loss And Data Recovery: The Make Or Break Point Of A Company

Author : Jessica Moorhill

Ever wonder how data recovery companies get back the data you had long deleted and lost? Ever wonder what kind of techniques they use to restore stuff that is more important than your life to you?
Well, there a few steps that data recovery professional has to go through before trying to recover your file,
1. Get to know what kind of data loss was it.
2. Try to figure out why it happened rather than what happened.
3. Act on the best possible solution available.
So, as for the first step, there are two categories, in which data loss is divided,
? Logical
? Physical
Steps for recovery are different for both kinds of losses.

Recovering data for logical losses is possible only if it hasn't been overwritten, eliminating any drives that have been used after data loss.
1. The first thing that data recovery companies do is clone the disk affected. Depending on the size of the drive, it can take hours, even days to clone.
2. After the cloning process, disks are scanned and the files restructured. It's like mixing up a number of jigsaw puzzles and putting them together afterwards, one at a time.
3. Logical failures take up a lot of system resources+time, so beware.

The main method of recovery in physical damage is repair/replacement; a process which requires a lot of hard work and time. One should also note that repair should be done by professionals only, because the simplest fault of yours could lead to severe damage.
1. The first step before attempting any type of recovery as assessment. It is imperative to know beforehand the kind of failure that has occurred and the steps to be taken.
2. Once they complete the assessment, they start on with the repairs, so that data can be read off the platters normally.
3. Usually requiring replacements that are not available in the market, often a new hard disk of the same model and batch is used, so the costs can run up the ceiling for this kind of recovery.
These are the usual steps taken for the recovery of data. This is just for your knowledge though, you should never try to DYI if you don't know what you're doing.
