Data Recovery is the process of retrieval of inaccessible or corrupt data from digital media that has become damaged or has been corrupted in some way. Data Recovery can be used to recover data from devices as varied as Hard Disk Drives, Memory Cards, Tapes, Mobile Phones, Personal Digital Assistants, Floppy Disk's, CD's, DVD's, Data Cartridges, Xbox's and many more items.

There are a number of software products that can help recover data damaged by a disk crash or virus. In addition, there are companies that specialize in data recovery. Of course, not all data is recoverable, but data recovery specialists can often restore a surprisingly high percentage of the data on damaged media.

Data Recovery may be needed for reasons which could include issues as diverse as hardware failure, (the tape has been 'chewed' up, the hard disk drive has failed, it could have suffered fire or flood damage, or logical failure, there can be corruptions in firmware, semiconductor failure, or accidental partition or file failure/deletion, a storage device could have been dropped, a hard disk drive may have been 'accidentally' formatted). All of these instances will require the services of a professional data recovery company or a data recovery software if the data was of such value (be it sentimental or financial) that the cost of the services are less than the perceived value of the data which is no longer accessible.

It is not just businesses who are at risk from data loss. Clients requiring data recovery come from all walks of life, including governments, large corporate, smaller businesses, and the individual who, with the introduction and subsequent boom in the use of PC's and digital cameras etc to record special occasions, holiday videos and photos etc may have lost anything from sentimental data to critical emails, and personal account details. Students are often grouped under this heading too.

There are numerous ways that data can be recovered from digital media which can vary greatly, our DataRecoveryWizard software tools are available which will do this job more professionally. If your storage has physical problem, we advise you send it to a professional data recovery company.

The next problem is what happens when the hard disk or storage device doesn't work. For the smaller 'Data Recovery Companies', this is a problem, and it is when the more serious Data Recovery Companies get involved, who specialize in higher end Data Retrievals. It is always recommended that the most critical work should be sent to a true data recovery specialist, (check out the accreditations - ensure the specialist has ISO9001-2000 Quality Assurance status, and is certified to ISO BE EN 14644 to ensure that their clean facility is at the correct level for intrusive data recovery work, find out how long that company has been trading, and check their testimonials).

Once you have found the company that you are happy with, if the data storage device doesn't work, there is a high likelihood that the digital media will require spare parts. There are specialist organizations which sell spare parts for old and hard to get hold of disk drives to Data Recovery Companies enabling them to get the original data accessible for long enough to image the data onto a stable storage device, enabling that data to be duplicated again which in turn allows a safe recovery attempt to be achieved.

The data recovery job is generally finished when a list of all the recovered files is sent to the client. Once the client approves this file listing, they are then shipped the data on an appropriate media. This can be a hard disk drive, floppy disk, CD or DVD. Alternatively, if a file is considered critical, it can be encrypted and then emailed to the client.

It should be noted that in extreme cases it may be impossible to recover any data.

And BACKUP YOUR DATA is a good way to protect data.

But backup technology and practices have failed to adequately protect data. Most computer users rely on backups and redundant storage technologies as their safety net in the event of data loss. For many users, these backups and storage strategies work as planned. Others, however, are not so lucky. Many people back up their data, only to find their backups useless in that crucial moment when they need to restore from them. These systems are designed for and rely upon a combination of technology and human intervention for success. For example, backup systems assume that the hardware is in working order. They assume that the user has the time and the technical expertise necessary to perform the backup properly. They also assume that the backup tape or CD-RW is in working order, and that the backup software is not corrupted. In reality, hardware can fail. Tapes and CD-RW do not always work properly. Backup software can become corrupted. Users accidentally back up corrupted or incorrect information. Backups are not infallible and should not be relied upon absolutely.
