The Drama of Data
Data loss is often a tragic and
traumatic experience for most computer users. It is often due
to hard drive failure, accidental formatting, electronic
malfunctioning or a product of "natural calamities". This seems
to be not much of a problem when there are viable data back-ups
that the user creates. However, the problem comes when we tarry
on making our back-up files, which is not a rare practice by
the way. Yet even for those who prepare back-up files still
fail to check on the viability of their back-ups.
In fact, even top-rated organizations
are victims of data loss, because it simply happen all the time
without choosing its target.
One minute, your files are all there.
The next minute they're gone.
Whether yours is a novel that you have
been working on for some time now, or some business data that
means a lot to your career, it will still be like a great
tragedy that will befall you. Now, when all your data are loss,
are they truly gone forever? Can't something be done about
Off course there is…data
Data recovery is a huge business,
which help computer users recover their data losses, even from
a burned out hard drive!
Once a hard drive is sent to a data
recovery company, it will be subjected to a diagnosis that will
help determine the drive's condition and the status of the data
loss. This process of evaluation will allow data recovery
engineers to identify the problems and the necessary courses to
Logical failures, a type of failure
that results from file-system corruption will take some time to
rebuild. This is mainly because the solution to the failure
would have to be a rebuilding process. However, there are cases
that the whole drive would not need a total reconstruction.
These occur when the media is not totally wrecked.
If however the failure roots from a
physical problem, that may be more of a challenge. The data
recovery engineer will have to scan the media and scan the
binary code. This then will be rebuilt and transferred to a new
hard drive. But users often elect the use of VCD' and
The process of evaluation typically
consumes one day. However, depending on the data recovery
company, the actual data recovery process may take some 3 to 5
days. If you want immediate results (like when data recovery is
a matter of life and death), there are agencies offering rush
works during weekends. But off course with tag prices that are
higher than usual.
Data recovery on its premium service
commands great prices. Sadly the motto here seem to be- "you
get what you paid for". It must be understood that data
recovery process is a very intricate one, which requires
factors that come with expensive tags. This is probably due to
the truth that when something becomes complicated, it already
owns the license to obligate consumers to pay higher for the
You don't only pay for the services
itself but also for the skill of the data recovery engineer.
The better the skill, the higher the price. In data recovery
industry, one surety to retrieve lost data is to hire talented
engineers who can perform at the highest level of standard.
However, even that would not suffice. In fact, no one can
actually guarantee you of the desired outcome. Experienced data
recovery engineers can only provide you with tentative
solutions, however so long as data recovery is on its process,
there is no assurance that lost data can be recovered in the
manner that you so desired.
In here, your only refuge is to seek
for a very experienced engineer to accomplish the job and hope
with cross fingers that he may produce a job well
