Data Recovery And Hard Disk Information Retrieval – A Complete Review

Recently my hard drive crashed, hey I do not mean that windows decided to be bitchy and make me reinstall it – Anyways it's really been a long time since I've been idiot enough to run Microsoft programs, thanks very much!

Well I mean that my hard drive, spinning away quietly at speed away irreverably, which all of a sudden emits a scratchy, screeching sound that can only be described as sickening, and immediately wiping out vast swathes of data like some primordial plague lord reaper scorching the continent of Europe with the bubonic. Sure this was one hellish experience, but nothing compared to the misery which began once I hired a hard disk data recovery service.

As a techie patiently enlighten me over the phone, a hard disk data recovery is not always a simple or a clear-cut affair. In order to complete a successful hard disk data recovery, it can either be a simple matter or an intricate one, and either expensive, or rather unreasonably expensive, depending on the severity of the problem.

At times the only problem is that something is not working with the loading mechanism of the hard drive. In fact there is more than a dozen of programs and macros which have to load to enable the computer to boot successfully, and if any one of these becomes cross-linked, or has any error at all with one of it's files, it can potentially cause a crash and necessitate a hard disk data recovery. Fortunately, this is the easy kind – it is even possible to for one to perform the hard disk data recovery with a little know-how and an extra hard drive. Simply slave boot the hard drive to another one, and extract the data off it – and you are ready to go as easy as pie!

However if you actually scratch the disk's surface, the hard disk data recovery becomes a much more tricky and a problematic affair. Time and again there are several solutions. Of which, one of them is to do a simple software hard disk data recovery, where you pull as much data off of the hard drive as you can can, and simply hope the scratch where it ruined too many of your files. If the hard drive has been physically wrecked – that is to say, if it is badly scratched and will not spin without doing further damage, or at all – then it must be taken apart physically, and the plates must be examined by sophisticated, expensive machinery. And this is the case where hard disk data recovery can run into the range of thousands of dollars!

    I'm thinking about raid 5 on my server. But I'll go with a nas box for a last line of defense vs crashes. If array fails ill have the most important stuff on the nas and can recover from that.

    I think that's the best way with raid.

    I own Rstudio and its saved me a few times on failed drives. It works well for getting at the data to copy over to a usb.

    Also a SATA/IDE to usb drive cables are very nice. Can take any drive out of any computer and plug it into any computer with a usb to see the directory. Works well if only the boot sector is corrupted.

    Once I knew how to do things start to finish, it took an hour or two. It took a bunch of time before that to come up to speed, though. (Days) Basically I had to do everything wrong once before I figured out the correct way. I'm not associated with Raid Reconstructor, but will recommend it as it did everything I needed it to do. It does take some detective work to get the various parameters correct, but once everything matched, it did the job, and I was able to retrieve my files.
