Data Recovery Tips

As drives get smaller and smaller, drive heads come closer and closer to the rotating media. The results are more frequent equipment failures and more destructive data losses. The increase in data disasters also stems from the sheer volume of data generated by modern companies.

While data backups would seem to offer an effective shield, they do not always provide comprehensive data protection.

Cases Requiring Data Recovery

When you lack a backup system

Without a dependable backup system, data loss of any size could prove disastrous for your organization.

When your backup and restore system fails

Your backup and restore process can be compromised by unreadable backups, corrupt backup data, and improper backup procedures. Even if the backup is successful, there will be a time gap between the last backup session and the data loss.

When your mirrored system fails

In order to safeguard critical business information, many organizations simultaneously copy data to two separate computer systems. If, however, that data is corrupted before it is copied, or if one or both of the two systems fail, your critical data may be irrevocably lost or destroyed.

When re-creation is impractical or impossible

Data re-creation or re-keying involves a great deal of time and money and increases the chance for user error.

When you fall victim to computer crime

If your organization’s data is intentionally stolen, altered, or destroyed, professional data recovery services can help. Microserve Data Recovery features an Electronic Evidence division that can locate and analyses data evidence, and support you with expert testimony if your computer crime incident results in legal proceedings.

Data Protection Tips

Store computer equipment in a safe environment. Computer equipment should be stored in a dry,controlled environment that is clean, dust-free and away from traffic.
Use regular Backups. Back up data at least once a week with reliable tapes or other storage always verifying that the correct data is backed up.
Use an uninterruptible power supply (UPS). In the event of a surge of electricity or lightning strike,uninterruptible power supply protects the computer from becoming damaged. In addition, a UPS has a battery backup that keeps the computer running, allowing you to save the data and avoid data loss. If UPS is not a viable solution, a surge protector is also a good investment.
Run a virus scan regularly and update it four times a year. Computer viruses are one of the enemies to data protection. Good anti-virus software tests their system for sequences of code unique to each known computer virus and eliminates the infecting invader.
Be aware of strange noises. In the event of strange noises or grinding sounds, turn off the immediately and call your data recovery provider. Further operation may damage their hard drive beyond repair.
In the event of data loss, simply contact one of our highly-trained Microserve Data Recovery specialists to discuss the solutions available.

Tips for Successful Data Recovery

There follows a number of tips for safeguarding data against additional damage in the event of data loss. Perhaps the most important tip is to never assume that data is irrecoverable. Professional data recovery services offer the expertise and tools required to recover data quickly and successfully.

Physical Damage

Physical damage can manifest itself in many forms including clicking, grinding, spinning or other strange noises. If you suspect physical damage, these tips can help reduce further data loss:
