Data loss is a scary scenario. Everything stops when you lose critical data. Unless you have backups to rely on, you can just move on and do what you’re supposed to do.
Granted that your backups are good, you would still have to recover your lost data from your hard drive. As a safety measure, you just have to do it.
You can’t leave your critical data stored in a useless hard drive. Remember, someone could always steal critical data from a disposed hard drive. Hence, you really have to recover data from it, no matter what.
Now, that could be a tedious task for you to do, especially if you’re not a techy person. Even if you are, would have all the time in the world to do it?
According to a study, you wouldn’t have to fret over recovering data from a hard drive.
Whether you’re a techy or a non-techy person, relying on a data recovery service is the easiest way to go about data loss. One good example of a data recovery service is the Harddriverecovery.org. This particular data recovery service is composed of trained technicians who can diagnose, secure, and most importantly, recover your precious data.
So why go through the trouble of dong it yourself? Unfortunately, there are some folks who take it upon themselves to recover their lost data. According to the study, some of these folks end up using recovery software to recover their lost data.
Choosing to use a recovery software is big risk. Although there’s nothing wrong with it, you just have to make sure that you will be able to recover your critical data with it. If that recovery software fails you, the chances of getting back your data become slimmer.
Even the trained technicians from the Harddriverecovery.org will ask you first if you had used a data recovery software. This is part of their service. Before anything else, they will diagnose your hard drive.
So, if you’re not sure about the recovery software, don’t even bother with it. Save yourself the trouble because if it doesn’t work out, you’ll be ending up going to a recovery service for help. The bottom line is, don’t try to do it yourself by relying on a recovery software.
The most that you can do yourself when recovering lost data is to check your Recycle Bin. If you’re lucky enough to see your files there, then you can just easily restore them back to your desktop. It will just take a couple of clicks to do that. Obviously, that is something that you can do yourself.
Now, what if you can’t find your files in the Recycle Bin? What are you to do? Spare yourself the trouble and take it from the OneWorldHerald.com study. Don’t do it yourself. Instead, rely on trained technicians from a reliable recovery service.
That said, always keep in mind that harddriverecovery.org/hard-drive-data-recovery.html is not a job for you to do. Even the study says so.
The following article Recovering Data From A Hard Drive Can Be Easy, According To Study is republished from HDRG Blog
Continuing its efforts to keep data recovery services customers educated about data safety and protection, Hard Drive Recovery Group discusses preparation techniques for when a person sells a computer and interesting backup options with two of its latest blog posts.
In our modern replace-once-obsolete world, buying a new computer can be a joy that many people find quite fulfilling. New RAM, larger capacity drives and high performance chips make buying a new computer exciting, but what of selling an old computer? It only makes sense to attempt to finance a new purchase by selling the old system, and yet many users are discovering that their "safe sale" may be far more dangerous than they thought.
In the blog post, "The Most Important Thing To Do Before Selling Your Old Computer," Hard Drive Recovery Group discusses a recent study published by researchers that purchased a number of used hard drives on Ebay. According to the study, over 42% of the drives actually contained data, while 15% of the drives actually contained personally identifiable information, including scanned images of passports and valuable identification.
"One of the reasons why data recovery services even exists as a business is simply because of the fact that even if a user thinks she has deleted a file from a hard drive, it may in fact still be there," said Maureen Davies, spokesperson for Irvine, CA's Hard Drive Recovery Group. "Few folks seem to understand this, and assume that a 'quick format' or overall file deletion is going to eliminate the drive's data. The fact is, it does not."
One of the primary issues for users is that they assume that if they delete files and then empty their drive's Recycle Bin, their drive files are permanently deleted. The study showed this was not the case. And unfortunately, even deeper formatting left data that could be recovered.
"Really, if a person is planning to sell a computer and wants to be assured that the data on the drive is eliminated, the right tools are necessary," said Davies. "Fortunately, there are a number of disk wiping tools available, including Eraser, which are either cheap or free. Download one of those programs easily, and the process is better in general."
In a second blog post, entitled, "Backup and Storage Options We Should All Consider", Hard Drive Recovery Group discusses not only the reasons to backup data, but also the best avenues for it. This approach continues to win fans. One key point is that there is really very little excuse for companies to be relying on older backup methods.
"It really is almost comedic when a company that has a $10,000 RAID 10 server that they are backing up with digital backup tapes from the early 2000s," said Davies. "Not only does this usually end really badly, but users today have far more choices for large scale backup than they have ever had. To ignore new technologies when business and personal data is so valuable is simply ridiculous."
Popular backup technologies like separate RAID servers, NAS appliances and Cloud backup providers are easily some of the most popular new enterprise technologies, and those in the know tend to use them regularly. This can save a business thousands of dollars on processes like RAID data recovery. For smaller businesses and personal files, SSD drives, external hard drives and even the now seemingly ancient flash drives are suitable backup options as well. There is never an excuse to not backup your data, said Davies, especially when the tools are so available.
"We're in an era where hard drive capacity has never been cheaper to purchase, so if backing up your drive is a goal, you can add redundancy really cheaply," said Davies. "A user doesn't have to deal with enterprise RAID backups to tape anymore. It's just not responsible."

Hard Drive Recovery Group, a firm based in Irvine, California, that offers RAID data recovery services among other data recovery services, has announced with pride that they have received 4 five-star reviews in the past week. Maureen Davis, spokesperson for Hard Drive Recovery Group, wants to point out that so far, they have received mostly five star reviews such that they have an overall rating of 5.0.
In one of the four five-star reviews they received during the past week, David W. said, “Found HDRG after searching for data recovery services near me, and was shocked at how close they were! A quick drive on the I-5 and I was able to quickly drop off the damaged hard drive with real experts. Service was fast, pricing was excellent! You can't go wrong with this data recovery service!”
Maureen Davis says, “Hard Drive Recovery Group specializes in laptops, Mac products and RAID server hard drive repairs and recoveries. Naturally, external hard drive recoveries are a major part of our overall sales, owing mainly to the volatility of those particular hard disks. And the desktop hard drive remains a staple of our business, as they are both the longest lasting drives, and the most likely to fail catastrophically.”
The data recovery services company has also been publishing blog posts and issuing press releases to provide important information to people regarding hard drive recovery. For example, in one of their recent releases, they announced that they have recently published two blog posts. One post provided tips for troubleshooting external hard drives while the other post discussed the latest hard drive reliability report from cloud backup provider BackBlaze.
An important service offered by the company is RAID recovery. This is one of the most difficult types of hard drive recovery. And while there are many RAID repair software available in the market, they are usually ineffective, particularly for those cases where there is hardware failure.
When there is a failed RAID, it is rare for the problem to be caused by a single hard drive failure. If it was just a single RAID hard drive failure, the RAID controller would usually be able to repair the overall RAID array with minor intervention. Thus, when there is a RAID failure, it is often because several drives have failed or the RAID controller itself has ceased to function properly. RAID data recovery is very difficult because care must not only be taken to extract the data from the RAID drive for recovery but also to rebuild the RAID array safely, and without data loss on the other drives in the array.
Meanwhile, in another one of the five-star reviews Hard Drive Recovery Group received during the past week, Marilyn K. said, “This company offered basically everything I needed when it comes to data recovery services. The engineers, particularly Lou, were amazing in general, and kept me well informed throughout the process. Call them when you need hard drive data recovery!”
And from an individual who found that her MacBook drive had failed, Nonna R. said, “My MacBook freaked out and my computer guy recommended these guys once he saw that my drive was dead. I've never dealt with a data recovery service before, but these guys were just very professional. Never did I feel like they were talking down to me, either, which when it comes to technical stuff, is right up my alley. I would trust Mike and Hard Drive Recovery Group with any data recovery!”
And the fourth five-star review they received the past week was from William M., who said, “Found Hard Drive Recovery Group after calling around and hearing nothing but absolutely ridiculous price ranges to recover a hard drive. This is definitely one of the most affordable ones out there, believe me. They delivered as promised, I am satisfied.”
People who would like to know more about the company's services, such as data recovery, may want to visit their website or contact them by telephone or via email. Their site provides complete information regarding the various services offered and customers can even get a free quote.

Looking up disk information is easy with PowerShell.
You might wonder why you need to look up disk information. Well, for starters, it wouldn’t hurt to know the specific details of your hard disk.
Do actually know the kind of hard drive you have? Are you even familiar with the speed of your hard drive? Well, if you’re not, then it’s high time you know about those details. PowerShell is a tool that you can use to get specific details on your hard disk.
Once PowerShell is open, you have two options. The first option is for you to run the command get-wmiobject -class win32_logicaldisk to retrieve general information.
You can also resort to using the second option. This requires you to run the core command wmic diskdrive get to retrieve hard drive properties.
The two options from PowerShell can, definitely, help you look up disk information. Now, for the less tech savvy folks out there, it might be a bit too intimidating to do it. Who would have thought that looking up disk information could be intimidating?
Well, it really isn’t. If you choose option one, all you have to do is to open PowerShell. You’ll get a screen where you can run the command get-wmiobject -class win32_logicaldisk. Just type in that particular command beside the path PS C:\User\Name> then press enter. Just like magic you’re going to see the disk information that you need to know.
If you opt for the second option, make sure to open PowerShell as an administrator. You can do that by clicking on Windows PowerShell once you see it in the search. Then just type in the core command wmic diskdrive get and then press enter.
Using the PowerShell tool to look up disk information shouldn’t scare you at all. What should scare you is when you have to retrieve data from your hard drive. That takes more than just running simple commands. You really need to be a hard drive recovery expert. Chances are, you’re not.
It takes a lot of years of training and experience to become an expert in hard drive recovery. Truth be told, no software can do what the experts can do. As a matter of fact, software might even do more harm than good. If you’re serious about getting back your data, avoid using any kind of recovery software.
Even worse, don’t even try to do it yourself by watching random videos. There’s no way you can learn a skill by simply watching a random video once. Remember, the experts didn’t learn it that way. Instead, they underwent some serious training.
That being said, you need trained and experienced engineers to help you out in a data emergency. While these https://www.harddriverecovery.org/emergency_tips.html can help you out, you should really just get on the phone to an expert right away.
