Digital Media Data Recovery is not always possible in all scenarios but in the majority of cases significant recovery is usually possible if the attempt to recover the lost data is made soon after the data loss occurs. Data can be lost in many different ways, the most typical are:
· Accidental Deletion, Erasure or Format.
· Operating System Failure or Software Crash.
· Virus or Spyware Infection.
· Malicious or Intentional Deletion, Erasure, or Format.
· Physical Damage to Storage Medium, ie. Storage Media Has Been Exposed to Liquids.
· Digital Media Device Experiences a Data Corruption Error.
Simple accidental deletion is by far the most common form of data loss. In most cases if the affected storage device is brought in immediately following the incident there is a near 100% recovery rate.
The next most common data loss occurs when there has been an Operating System Crash or System Crash. In this scenario chances are good that the data is still intact on the device, though it may not be accessible in the standard way. A near full recovery should be possible in the majority of cases.
Virus and Spyware infections can also cause system failures and data destruction. Data recovery in this instance varies depending upon how much damage has occurred.
Malicious destruction occurs when data is intentionally destroyed or deleted. Once again, a data recovery in this case will vary depending upon the skill and thoroughness of the person responsible for the data destruction. Recovery from this type of loss can range from a 100% full recovery, to a 0% total loss, depending upon the techniques that were used to destroy the data.
In every one of these cases, the sooner the affected hardware is brought in for analysis the better the odds are that a recovery can be made. Even in the worst case scenarios, partial recovery should be possible.
Typical types of data that can be recovered include but are not limited to: pictures, music, videos, spreadsheets, databases, letters, and documents of all types.
USB Flash Drive, Memory Stick, Thumb Drive, or Pen Drive: These handy little devices are becoming more and more common. They offer convenience, affordability and portability. However, they can be susceptible to fairly frequent data corruption errors. We offer complete data recovery services for deleted, formatted or corrupted digital media devices.
If you suspect your Digital Media Device has experienced a data loss:
The first thing you must do is immediately power down your equipment. After you have powered your system down, remove the flash drive and place it in a safe dry environment until you can contact a data recovery service. Using your flash drive for any other activity can permanently modify and/or destroy your data. This is the single most important step to minimizing the amount of damage incurred in a data loss scenario.
