What Causes Data Loss?
There are many causes for data loss, including mechanical failure of the device, damage to the device, human error, power surges, and software viruses. The two most common categories of data loss are logical failure and physical failures:
A logical failure is when the media has not been physically damaged. A file may have been deleted, reformatted or contaminated with a virus. Generally, in these situations, data is easier to recover as long as the data has not been overwritten by subsequent usage. If you contact PC Fixer quickly, we may even be able to assist you in recovering these types of losses by way of a secured remote connection! We provide readily available live online service to our valued clients.
A physical failure is when the media has been damaged, or the equipment experiences mechanical failure. Fire or water damage can result in a physical failure. A disk drive or a part of the mechanism such as a spindle or head may have failed. In these cases, the media, such as a disk drive, must first be rebuilt before data recovery can be attempted. If a recovery is possible, PC Fixer has a solution.
When to Suspect Data Loss
- You suddenly encounter a situation where you are unable to access data from your system or backup, which was functioning quite well until now
- Data has been accidentally deleted, or the data control structures have been overwritten erroneously
- Data has been corrupted, or you are unable to access the data stored in media due to physical damage or problems in the operating system.
What to Do When Data Loss Occurs
- Do not use automatic data recovery tools
- Do not use any application or program that accesses or alters the problem media in any way
- Shut down any system or device that makes unusual grinding and clicking noises when operated
- Do not open the hard disk or any such physical media device and try to repair it on your own
