Computer users and many experts often consider lost data permanently destroyed, with no hope of recovery. And because much of the information about data loss is complex, inconsistent or inaccurate, it’s not surprising that data loss and data recovery are some of the most confusing and misunderstood concepts.
At Kroll Ontrack, we take the mystery and much of the expense associated with lost data out of the equation. Our data recovery engineers have studied data loss and have been performing successful recoveries for 20 years.
Their findings indicate that in most cases, data is recoverable – no matter what the circumstance. So, never assume your valuable data can’t be recovered. Always check with a qualified data recovery expert before determining what to do when data loss has occurred.
Why does data loss happen?
Data loss happens for a number of reasons, and at virtually anytime and anywhere. No one factor can ever truly be overcome, which makes data loss a reality. It is not a matter of if, but rather a matter of when data loss will occur. As a result, businesses and home users alike cannot rely on hope as their strategy. Data may be recoverable with Remote Data Recovery™ service (recovery through modem or Internet connection) or even with data recovery software.
