5 Data Recovery Tips

October 19, 2018

Data Recovery

There is no doubt that our lives have become a lot easier because of technology. Nowadays, we have a lot of up-to-date and automated ways of doing things. For instance, today, we can store a huge amount of data on small chips called memory cards. And the chances of data loss are not so high. Even if we lose data, we can get it recovered with a few clicks of the mouse. Read on to know 5 data recovery tips.

Make a Recovery Plan

If you have a plan, you won’t panic in case something goes wrong. For data recovery, you can choose from a lot of free tools as they are designed specifically for this purpose. So, what you need to do is install a good app ahead of time. You can also hire one of the best data recovery services, but it may cost you more.

Use Flash Drives

Ideally, it’s a good idea to create a back up of your important data. You can store your backup on a flash driver, for instance. And if your hard drive fails, you can get your data back within a few minutes.

Cloud Storage

With cloud storage, you can store your data in a separate location. This is one of the many reasons cloud storage is increasing in popularity. This place won’t be touched by your failed hard drive, flash drive or other data storage units. This is the reason most of cell phone service providers offer cloud storage. As a matter of fact, cloud storage is one of the best ways of preventing data loss.

Recovery of deleted files

Keep in mind that most files that get deleted can be recovered provided you can use the right tool. But if the files have been shredded or deleted permanently with a special data deletion tool, then you can’t do anything. This means that if you have deleted some files and they are lying in your recycle bin, you can get them recovered.

Looking for Lost Data

If you want to recover data, you should first find out a way of searching for the data. But this task requires a lot of patience even if you use an app to perform the search for deleted or lost files. So, if you have a huge amount of data to recover, we suggest that you let the professionals handle the job, especially if the data is really important to you. Usually, hiring professionals is a great idea if your business data is at stake.

Keep in mind that you may need to recover data no matter how cautious you may be. Actually, the idea is to get ready and find out what to do when data loss happens. With technology, our lives can become a lot easier and convenient. As far as data loss goes, we suggest you stay prepared at all times and use the best tools that are at your disposal. This way you can rest assured that lost data would be recovered safely.

    All the anti MS comments, you must be doing something wrong because I've never had an update cause loss of data, nor day to day use of windows in any way. Don't let your drives get too old and stop downloading pirated software and you'll be fine.

  • Jan Duncan October 19, 2018 at 11:31 pm

    Hi Brian, a very timely video as I have not used the latest Windows update after watching your videos. I opine, in view of the seeming missing data, your give away program sounds a winner. I take a lot of photos and recently, they show as not able to be opened or containing 0kb data, even though they used to work, and other photos are fine on the same drive, so for this, I would be delighted with a licence should I be selected. Thanks for posting this for I will contact the site, once I know you have gifted them to others, with a view to purchasing the software. Regards, Jan.

    Cheers Brian 8 entries in. Need software like this to help recover my wife's data as she's a teacher and loses her temper when things frustrate her and often throws her storage devices and pc! Happy life! Thanks for the video.

    Just revert to Windows 7; any good computerprofessional can do that for you – it will cost you some money, but you will gain in speed, simplicity and stability. And if you set it up to NEVER do updates (with the exception of the built in antiviruslibraries) you have a solid system for all of your creative softwares, that will keep on working flawlessly, even if you never connect to the internet (apart from the occasional antivirus or application update). And if you really need internetaccess for your email, truetube or favourite "fakenews"sites, you just use your phone or reserve a cheap Linuxsystem for that, as Linux is famously virus- and spywareproof.

    hi brian,a few days ago i made a mess by accidentally deleting files on the desktop with an automatic selection from my wireless keyboard
    i did'nt know about active,so i used the free portable recuva,and it brought back all my files too
    naturally,the active environment is packed with more apps then recuva,recuva is only to restore your files

  • Kenny Whiddon October 19, 2018 at 11:31 pm

    Automatic data loss is just a new feature of Windows 10.

  • ian ARBERY October 19, 2018 at 11:31 pm

    hi brian yet another very good video on software and how to use it. the way you show how to do the task on software in very easy other ways to get it to work as well. the software which here looks very good if you have lost files to get them back as well as other hard drive problems. I have a hard drive which I believe is drying as it works for a short time only I think this program from lsoft might help me. all the best brain and I cannot wait for the next software review and what it can do. πŸ™‚

  • sponation October 19, 2018 at 11:31 pm

    Thanks for the video! I run a computer repair business, this software would be a huge help. I would definitely put it to use. Thanks again for what you do you have saved my butt more than once.

  • Robert Keenan October 19, 2018 at 11:31 pm

    This would come in handy for my Biz. Consolidate a-lot of other software.

  • Cal Mac October 19, 2018 at 11:31 pm

    Hi Brian will this software restore deleted partitions on an ssd? I recently bought an m.2 and a 2.5" ssd saved all the files I wanted on a separate drive. Attached the two new drives to run speedtests, went for a fresh install but somehow lost all the partitions on the ssd's so Windows won't install on them as it states could not create or locate an existing partition. Tried the steps in your other video but the software wasn't compatible with UEFI it said πŸ˜• So I need to re-instate the drives to their original state if possible – thanks for your time πŸ‘

  • John sweda October 19, 2018 at 11:31 pm

  • John Gray II October 19, 2018 at 11:31 pm

    Been looking for a set of tools for data recovery. Just in case I, a friend or a client "Lost data" for whatever reason. I backup via iDrive but I try local recovery if iDrive dose does not show the latest date for the item of interest. as for friends and clients; not all backup daily, if at all.

  • Darryl Toombs October 19, 2018 at 11:31 pm

    I've lost data before and had successes and failures in retrieving the lost data. This looks like it would increase my odds significantly so would love to have this in my arsenal.

    #1 rule for doing data recovery is never to write the data back to the same hard drive that you are recovering the data from. That is because that process can over write other existing but deleted data on the drive. Always recover the the data to another hard drive!
