If your hard drive crashes, don’t be too upset. At least you have your hard drive. If your hard drive crashes and you don’t have your computer, then you probably have a problem.
But if you have your computer and your hard drive crashes, don’t panic. It’s possible to recover most if not all of the lost data.
The problem comes when you try to do it. The truth is that it is hard, but not impossible. And you don’t have to do it yourself, or even hire a specialist. Today, software for data recovery is cheap and widely available.
But it’s tricky business. Recovery software isn’t foolproof. And in any case, you cannot be sure it will work. In practice, data recovery software works best when all the data still appears to be on the disk. But that’s often not the case.
Here is how it works. The data recovery software scans the disk for more news data and restores it. Most times this works, but the software is not perfect. For example, it does not always recover deleted files, and it won’t restore files that the program itself deleted. Also, the disk space may not be large enough for all the data. The software may recover some, but not all, of the data.
So, data recovery software doesn’t automatically get you out of trouble. But it’s still better than nothing.
