How Not to Lose Your Meaningful Data

dont_forgetFew things are more precious than one’s memories. We all like to collect family photos, home movies, and records of experiences, information, and stories to keep the memories alive. In the past, these items were stored on paper in a box in the closet, but today’s memorabilia is primarily digital. The most common way of storing them is on a hard drive or memory card.

Because of their inestimable value, the idea of losing those memories is unthinkable. One can’t go to the local department store and pick up a replacement of personal items such as a clip of your child reciting the alphabet for the first time, a photo of Grandpa holding his newest grandchild, or a scan of a hand-made Mother’s Day card from your five-year-old daughter. Experts advise that precautions be taken to preserve these special data files. One way to do this is to back up files periodically and store one copy at home and a second copy in an off-site location.

“Oh, No!” Moment

Despite efforts to protect our data, however, careless acts and accidents do happen that can cause the loss of irreplaceable media. Imagine the following possible scenarios:

  • Your home office suffers a power surge, wiping out your entire system.
  • A grandchild yanks the cables and sends your hard drive crashing to the floor.
  • Your teenager spills his soda on the laptop, frying the components.

The first inclination you might have in such a situation may be to curse the weather, clobber your teenager, or banish your grandchild, until it occurs to you that they are the children in the photos that you may never see again. If something like this happens to your data, you should know that there is hope for the recovery of lost data: you need not despair.

Reclaiming Your Remembrances

Documentation of your children’s milestones, the photos of your ancestors that you spent hours scanning, your vacation journal, the elaborate digital scrap books you created, and all your other unique records are still within the machine’s storage device (i.e. a hard disk or memory stick/card) and can be located and retrieved by the engineer.

Great service! Got all of my files back!

Great service! Got all of my files back!

My hard drive was almost 2tb full of files, and got knocked on to the floor by my cat. No computer recognized my hard drive when I plugged it in afterwards, so I thought all of my files were gone forever. I had a lot of very sentimental videos/images on there, so the thought of not getting them back was devastating. I brought my hard drive in to HDD recovery Services, and they managed to recover all of my files! I was so thrilled! They walked me through every step that they took, and recommended many ways to avoid it from happening again. So glad I went with HDD Recovery Services!
