What Is Data Recovery?

If your device suffers a crash and is nonfunctional or you think there is no way to restore it without losing all of the stored files, data recovery is the service you need. Even if you cannot access the files on the device, all of the data is likely still somewhere on the disk. A data recovery expert will devise the best possible plan for recovering and extracting your data.

How It Works

How exactly does the data recovery process work? It can vary from device to device, but the basic steps remain the same. eProvided makes it easy for anyone. Prepare yourself and read this information below, save it for later.

Step One: Initial size-up. Before starting any action, you need to know:

  • The possible cause of the failure.
  • The extent of the damage, including the number, size, and location of the affected drive.
  • The overall host machine condition.
  • The approximate amount, file types, and importance of the lost data files.
  • State of backups and availability of any backup copies of the data, if any.
  • Tricks to recover files, preventing invasive file recovery.
  • Can you recreate what you lost easily.

Step Two: Evaluation of available resources. A successful recovery depends on strong resources, both human and hardware.

  • Contact a computer or device restoration expert. They’ll require the information gathered in step one.
  • Check to see if you have storage available to store your recovered data.
  • Investigate your surroundings, do you have a proper plan in place to prevent further problems.

Step Three: Set-up. It’s likely you’ll be asking the assistance of a file retrieval professional. In the meantime, avoid installing software (including data recovery software) on the damaged drive. Unless otherwise instructed by an expert, do not write to the damaged drive. Be absolutely sure you will not write data to this damaged drive.

Once recovery has been successful eProvided will evaluate the results prior to returning the device to you. Keep in mind that data recovery is never a sure thing.
