Today we store a lot of important information on our devices. From photos and videos with unrecoverable moments, working documents, to series and movies to enjoy at any time.
Because, to a greater or lesser extent, we all store files on our computers or mobile devices, the security of our data is extremely important .
Can you imagine turning on your computer one day and all the contents of your hard drive are gone? If you’re one of those who makes regular backups, which we always recommend, there won’t be much of a problem, but otherwise the losses can be very large.
Luckily today there are software and companies that specialize in data recovery. Something we can turn to in case of a total disaster and that in a large percentage of the cases can help us to recover the lost data or at least a part of it . One company that specializes in this type of service is Kroll Ontrack.
Kroll Ontrack offers two different types of services. One is data recovery software and the other is physical recovery of data on failed hard drives or other storage media.
Ontrack EasyRecovery, Kroll Ontrack’s Data Recovery Software
The software offered by the company is capable of recovering accidentally deleted data on units that are not physically damaged. They offer three different versions to suit different needs and audiences:
- Ontrack EasyRecovery 11 Home – Data Recovery with Disk Diagnostics and Data Wipe
- Ontrack EasyRecovery 11 Professional – A More Advanced Tool for Enterprise Data Lifecycle Management
- Ontrack EasyRecovery 11 Enterprise – The Complete Option. It offers support for network environments, RAID and virtual systems.
With this software it is possible to recover accidentally deleted data, RAIDs that suffer from sync failures and the like, but the software is not capable of recovering physically damaged drives. In this last case, it is necessary to resort to more advanced services that the company also offers.
What about physical damage to the storage medium?
In case you have a hard disk or other support with physical damage it is necessary to resort to your physical service offered by your engineers. The company has laboratories with clean cameras in Madrid and from them its staff can, on many occasions, recover the data stored on media that have suffered some physical damage (knocks, short circuits, etc, etc…) .
In a world where more and more things are digital and stored on computer media , it is very important that this type of company continues to develop and research ways to recover data lost by users. After all, in the event of a disaster, we will have to turn to them and the better their techniques are, the more likely we are to recover our memories, work files and other information that we might have lost forever.
Have you ever suffered a loss of data due to an error of yours or a failure of the hardware where it was stored? Have you been able to recover the data?
