Here I have tried to provide out some Do’s and Don’ts which must be followed when computer failure occurs. Caution should also be taken while dealing with hard drive failure or other type of computer problems. Never ever try to react in a panic as this will only cause or make the problem even worse.


1. Always make it in a habit to backup your data frequently.

2. If you hear any awkward sound or smell any thing then always shut down your system and gives it a rest. Never try to keep working and making the situation even worse.

3. While repairing or opening your cabinet always try to discharge you body with any static charge stored on your body. Always ground yourself before having to open the cabinet.

4. Always try to install an extra fan so as to make the proper flow of air so as to make it free from excessive heating.


1. Never try to think that the data recovery solution will recover almost whole of your data. And you use our system in the worst conditions. Everything is having limitations and this also has the same.

2. Never ever try to recover your data with commonly available software or freeware as this will make the recovery even more badly. Always go for the reliable source of data recovery solution.

3. Do not subject the drive to extreme temperatures changes both hot and cold. As both this temperature in extreme case will harm you data stored on the Hard Drive.

4. Never try to remove the protective covering of the Hard Drive in order to repair the disk. Always consult for the proper Technician to do so.

The above mentioned Do’s and Don’ts are the most basic things which definitely must be taken into account so as to have the efficient recovery of the data. The Hard Drive of your system is he very important part as it stores most of your valuable data both offline and online so the above mentioned must be followed so as to make yourself free from any situation of data loss or disk crash up.

You should take a look here The Laptop Support Community if you need more information about laptop and data recovery.

    Wouldn't it be easier to use the cmd to do the process of getting the recovery bitlocker rather than the I mean you put that in your other video.

    Hello. I have someting to ask. A few years ago, I did bitlocker to one of my files but I didn't know I have to make Recovery key(id) to unlock them. And I have changed my computer, and I tried to unlockt them, I couldn't succeed. Someone said "If you didn't make recovery key on the computer where you did bitlocker, you can't unlock them on other computers. You have no choice but to give up the files" But the files are really really important to me and I just didn't know, and I wasn't noticed that I have to make recovery key!! Can I unlock them with your method?

  • TheStarspangle June 8, 2018 at 6:49 pm

    Another POINTLESS video, you can find these options on the microsoft website, this ISN'T showing people how to unlock bitlocker if you CAN"T actually find the key, Microsft is such bullshit and forces you to add shit like this but people ALWAYS put bullshit info into it just to get passed it, no one Ever uses a Microsoft account simply because it's NOT Secure but they FORCE you to use their accounts, so people use bullshit accounts again just to get passed the useless information, so again this video is POINTLESS, people are asking how to UNLOCK the drive WITHOUT their KEY! POINTLESS!

    I got no option to save a bitlocker key, and Iam locked out of my computer, pls help.

  • Ron Phippen June 8, 2018 at 6:49 pm

    Artexic – great video and help. Think our problem was my daughter bought Dell XPS13 at John Lewis with WIN10 preloaded – who by?. Not aware of the recovery bitkey/code protocols, no-one told us what that code was. Machine broke, she's on 2nd replacement device, and off course we got locked out without the bitlocker key after a recent "sent away to Dell for repair" (so we couldn't learn the key via windows). Several days of angst but breakthru was she just been able to locate details from MSoft account & it's fixed. All because of the belief I got from your video. Many thanks. THINKS: Dell repair replaced the motherboard, so that's (I assume) a hardware/configuration change ?? – maybe her PIN might struggle (so we need the 'double reboot' with key suspended method, eh??
