What is Data Recovery?

What causes Data  Loss?

What is Data Recovery?
Data recovery is the process of restoring data that has been lost, accidentally deleted, corrupted or made inaccessible.

In enterprise IT, data recovery typically refers to the restoration of data to a desktop, laptop, server or external storage system from a backup.

Data recovery can be performed on a variety of storage devices including internal storage drive of laptop or desktop, external hard disk drive, solid-state drive, USB flash drive, optical storage medium (CD/DVD/BD), and memory card (SD, SDHC, SDXC).

What causes data loss?
Most data loss is caused by human error, rather than malicious attacks, human error accounted for almost two-thirds of the incidents reported. The most common type of breach occurred when someone sent data to the wrong person.

Other common causes of data loss include power outages, natural disasters, equipment failures or malfunctions, accidental deletion of data, unintentionally formatting a hard drive, damaged hard drive read/write heads, software crashes, logical errors, firmware corruption, continued use of a computer after signs of failure, physical damage to hard drives, laptop theft, and spilling coffee or water on a computer.

How Data Recovery works

The data recovery process varies, depending on the circumstances of the data loss.
Data recovery is possible because a file and the information about that file are stored in different places. For example, the Windows operating system uses a file allocation table to track which files are on the hard drive and where they are stored. The allocation table is like a book’s table of contents, while the actual files on the hard drive are like the pages in the book.

When data needs to be recovered, it’s usually only the file allocation table that’s not working properly. The actual file to be recovered may still be on the hard drive in flawless condition. If the file still exists — and it is not damaged or encrypted — it can be recovered. If the file is damaged, missing or encrypted, there are other ways of recovering it. If the file is physically damaged, it can still be reconstructed.

So, when data is deleted or a drive is formatted, the data is not removed from the storage drive. Rather, the data remains intactin the storage medium in an inaccessible state ready to be overwritten by new data. This marooned data can be retrieved by using a data recovery software that uses file signatures to scan the entire storage drive bit by bit. You can then preview and select the required data from the scanned items and recover them to a distinct storage drive to avoid overwriting. In case the data that you are trying to recover is overwritten or corrupt, it can’t be fixed by a data recovery software.

What Are the Best Precautions Against Data Loss? 

The best precaution against data loss is to back up your data to an external backup drive. This can be done either manually or by using the native backup app provided in your operating system; for instance, use File History for Windows or Time Machine for mac OS. For data that you have saved on your external storage device without its copy on your computer, you must create its back up to yet another external medium manually or clone it using cloning software.

The best way to back up is to follow a 3-2-1 backup plan. This plan requires you to create at least 3 copies of your critical data, 2 copies on different storage media, and 1 copy on an offsite storage location.

For offsite storage, you can rely on cloud space (OneDrive, iCloud, etc.) Back up the specific folder containing all your critical files to a cloud drive. Cloud storage ensures you can retrieve important data from any computer by logging in to your cloud account using the Internet. Enterprises can go for virtual cloud space to store huge amounts of data and make it accessible throughout various servers so that it can be accessed from anywhere in the world.

By following the 3-2-1 backup plan, you increase data availability even if the primary source becomes inaccessible or fails permanently, or the backup drive itself has turned corrupt or damaged. Also, check the consistency of your backup source, as it boosts up the chances of immediate data restoration during data loss disaster.

In case you don’t have a backup and you lost your data, the best precaution that you need to take to avoid data loss is to stop using the computer or the external storage device immediately to prevent any overwriting—until you recover your data.

Unreliable Data Recovery Tricks
Don’t trust any non-reliable tricks to get back your data from a non-working or physically failed storage drive. Because unreliable tricks make the situation worse and create new challenges for successful data recovery. For instance, don’t put the failed hard drive into the freezer of your refrigerator to make it accessible from a computer. This trick may or may not work but might result in permanent data loss. It’s better not to use such a trick to keep your hope alive of accessing your drive and data.

Also, major data recovery industry leaders have reported that many end-users have lost their data permanently by employing unreliable data recovery techniques—like opening the case of a storage device to change the failing equipment or connecting the drive directly to the motherboard so that it can be accessed. These actions have created new challenges for the data recovery industry and have aroused great concerns for the safety of user’s data.
