Hard Drive Recovery Prevention Tips

 

How to prevent a data disaster from happening to your company

How corporations and individuals respond to a data crisis often reveals how they they deal with day-to-day business challenges. Typically, the ones that confront the issue directly and escalate rapidly are the most acceptible.

If it happens to you, the most important thing to remember is that no matter how dire the circumstances, at aleast some data almost always can be recovered -- usually between 75-85%.

To prevent the need of data recovery ever occurring try to follow these basic data protection principles:
  • Keep the system in a dry, shaded area that is dust-free

  • Back up data and test restoration capabilities regularly

  • Have a complete understanding of the system setup before attempting to install new software

  • Make sure all antivirus software is up to date. Check all incoming disks and email for viruses

  • Replace the drive if a disk scan indicates a bad sector

  • Never attempt installations or repairs without experience. This is very important.

  • Avoid moving computers, especially while in operation.

  • Never use software-recovery utilities to repair data when the hardware is failing.

  • Do not attempt to operate a visibly damaged hard drive or server suspected of damage

  • Use diagnostic utilities with caution

  • Defragment drives regularly. This will help simplify data-retrieval efforts if they are required
