Data Recovery

Without data you have no business, and without business you have no money… and without money you have no way to clothe, feed and shelter yourself…so wouldn’t you think that making sure you hang on to your data is the most important part of your business? Thought so.

Data loss can occur under a wide range of circumstances, and you need to be ready to fix the problem no matter what caused it.  The following are just the main ways that data can be lost from your computer.

  • Virus Attack
  • Accidental Disk Format
  • File Deletion
  • Partition loss or corruption
  • Lost or Missing files and folders
  • Employee Sabotage
  • Re-formatted or re-partioned drive 

When any of these things happens you can be sitting around wondering what went wrong, you need to be on top of the situation and ensure that data loss is temporary not permanent.  No matter what operating system, what hardware and which configuration you are using you are going to have a very unique set of challenges when trying to get back all of that important information.

When you are looking for file recovery, there are several companies that really get the job done.  One such company is Stellar in the United states, or EZD consulting in Canada; they offer data recovery on everything from:

  • Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000, 2003, XP
  • Apple Macintosh
  • Novell
  • Linux
  • Unix operating system
  • FAT, NTFS, NTFS5, HFS, HFS+, NWFS, EXT2 and EXT3 file systems.
  • Data recovery from CD with ISO9660.

One important aspect of data recovery that people, and often some companies often lose sight of is that data recovery takes a multi-disciplinary approach. You can’t just send in an engineer, or a technician to get the job done, you need a team with skills broad enough to understand not only where the data is, but how it was lost in the first place.

This requires a total strategy that can only be offered by a company that is totally committed to retrieving your data and putting the power of information back in your hands.

You also need a company that can help you with data security.  Because without data security you’ll end up becoming all too familiar with the folks who retrieve your data, and while that’s good for their business, they know that it’s bad for business in general, and if you go out of business because of a data mix-up, that is bad for everyone.
