RecoverySoft / February 21, 2019

Most people are still using their old school hard drives to store their files. There is nothing wrong with that, most computers are still being manufactured with one of those, but their days are counted. It's more and more common to try and recover data from a hard drive that has given up. These devices are extremely prone to physical damage because of its moving parts. Hard disk drives are made of the metal casing, a spinning set of disks where the whole thing stores data and an arm, which is called head for some reason, that moves just a whisker above the surface. It's not hard to imagine why this design is more likely to fail than one that has no moving parts what so ever. When your hard drive fails, you're going to have to get some data back obviously. If you've not lost data yet but the device is making funny things, like crashing your system once in every now and then, back things up, and fast. Use an external hard drive, or a flash drive, does not really matter, just save your files before it's too late. If your device is totally gone, you're in for…

RecoverySoft / February 20, 2019

Context: Unfortunately, most home users, and many business users, do not back up their systems. Moreover, many small businesses have older back-up procedures that are often ineffective for recovering files. Of course, you can run down to your neighborhood electronics store and purchase a replacement drive for your computer, but what about your data on the failed hard drive? How important was it? Did you save it or back it up? What to do: If you need to recover data on the hard drive, the first thing to do is avoid trying to reboot or doing anything that involves the drive. Doing so can actually do more damage to your data. The only irreversible data loss is caused by overwriting bits, physical damage to the drive platters or destruction of the magnetization of the platters, which seldom happens in the real world. In the majority of cases, the malfunction is caused by a damaged circuit board, failure of a mechanical component and crash of internal software system track or firmware. In the case of actual hard drive failure, only a data recovery professional can get your data back. And the fact that you cannot access your data through your operating…

Combating Risks of Permanent Data Loss During Hard Drive Failures
RecoverySoft / February 19, 2019

If you happen to have your hard disk drive fail at some point, you will be most likely in a panic-stricken situation, asking yourself how do I fix it. It is an arduous job for a rookie to dive into the problem and analyze the culprits. In reality, hard disk drive failures are not easy to fix and make you lose your valuable data. The more you fiddle with your drive, the more you ruin the chances of a successful recovery. Any non-professional attempt at recovery can cause irreparable data loss. There are many contributing factors to a hard disk failure. Any mechanical device is subject to wear and tear with time. Hard drives are mechanical devices vulnerable to circuitry and mechanical failures. This remains a fact even if you are extra vigilant and keep a close eye on your hard drive. The firmware embedded in your drive also has a good chance of being shorted out by a power surge. Additionally, the read / write heads that move above the platter may get misaligned due to a drop, improper handling of the device, or more. Hard drive failures can manifest in different forms and each failure is followed by…

When And How To Delete A Hard Drive
RecoverySoft / February 19, 2019

Most of the time, of course, computer users are focused on protecting the information held on their hard drives, and keeping it from coming to harm. There are times, however, when the focus shifts to deleting the hard drive, to keep the data from falling into the wrong hands, when the computer is being sold or given away, or even for legal reasons. One of the most frequent reasons for deleting the data on a hard drive is when the computer is to be transferred to a new owner. With computer technology changing so rapidly and even the newest computers becoming obsolete so quickly, there is a thriving market for used computers, and it is important for the current owner of the computer to take the steps necessary to protect the personal information on the computer from being used for nefarious purposes. These days so many of us do our taxes online, and while this electronic option provides many conveniences, it also introduces a number of risks, including the risk of identity theft. Financial information can lurk virtually anywhere on such a computer, from spreadsheets and tax preparation programs to saved emails and other types of documents. If the computer…
