With our increased dependence on computer, we are moving faster in our day-to-day personal as well as professional life. Every boon comes with its limitation. So also, the faster and accurate computer are also vulnerable to the danger of data loss. Lost data is a financial disaster both for individuals and organization. When data is the sole of all operations, loss of valuable data can cause a sudden halt of all the vital operations. Loss of vital data from the computer can make the person idle resulting in zero productivity. Further, a survey reports that inability of an individual to access key data would impact three other coworker’s productivity by 25%.
Few major reasons resulting in data loss include hard drive failure, firmware corruption, logical error, accidental deletion and overwriting, OS failure, computer viruses and natural disasters. Hard drive failure may be caused due to mechanical failure or electronic failure. In case of mechanical failure, physical components of the device begin to wear or malfunction. In case of electronic failure, Printed Circuit Board(PCB) begins to produce error. When firm corruption occurs, system does not detect the hard drive. In case of logical error, there is a missing of files, folders and drive partitions. Data can also be lost when there is accidental deletion, overwriting of existing data or emptying of the recycle bin. There can be a major data loss when the operating system, which is the system software that manages the hard ware and manages its communication with software fails to function.
Data loss results either in permanent loss of data (as in case of hardware damage) or in the case where data is recoverable. Today, with the introduction of number of back-up and recovery solutions, the problem of irretrievable data is slowly taking the back seat. With the help of in-house solutions, the minor data loss can be easily fetched. When the severity of the loss is major, a third party recovery tool is worth to be used to recover the lost data.
There are many third party recovery solution providers who shoulder the data recovery solutions very effectively. One among them is Stellar information Systems which provides efficient data recovery solutions through its innovative products. Stellar offers various data recovery software for this purpose. With a good track record, Stellar is consistently working towards offering efficient software at reasonable price.
