What is Data Recovery?

Data recovery is the process of recovering and restoring information that has become corrupt, damaged, sabotaged, or inaccessible. Data loss can happen in a variety of different ways. It can be caused by hardware failure, user error, and even viruses can cause data loss.

What Are The Symptoms?

If you can recognize the symptoms before you have total hardware failure, then the process of data recovery can sometimes be avoided all together and save you money. It may be that you only need hard drive repair. Some of the symptoms to look for are: unusual slowness in the everyday operation of your computer, your computer has difficulty booting up, random blue screens requiring a restart, strange noises not usual to normal operation, etc.
