What should I do if my device is damaged by heat?
Losing crucial data can be devastating in any case, but there are a few tips to keep in mind to lessen the possibility of additional damage when you’ve experienced data loss from extreme heat or fire.
- Do not try to operate a device that has been subjected to heat damage.
Trying to operate laptops, desktops and other devices that may have been damaged by heat may cause further damage within the device’s hard drive.
- Contact a professional data recovery expert, immediately.
Truth be told, recovering data from heat damaged devices requires a unique set of skills. In cases where media has been potentially damaged due to extreme heat, or even smoke, it’s best to trust the experts with recovering any critical data.
- Consider any available back up data.
Having data readily available can make all the difference, so it may be helpful to proactively create a recovery plan in the event of heat damage. Keep your location in mind when estimating the opportunity for heat damage from natural incidents such as wildfires or extreme summer temperatures and align your information security policies with the risks accordingly. It’s also important to remember that there’s no time like the present to back up your data. A good backup strategy is a fail-safe way to ensure that all is not lost should your devices become exposed to fire, smoke, or water damage.
