What if all data is gone

What if all data is gone

The art in data recovery

Data is lost in a wide variety of ways. Of course, the classic way of data loss is the one where the user deletes a file and yet there are a variety of other ways data can be lost. Be it by the damage of the end device or by an attacker (= hacker) who has deleted data. The search for data recovery has already become part of the daily work of many companies that have already lost data in many ways. But is this data then lost forever or can it be recovered? The short answer is: Yes. The detailed answer is yes, however there are challenges.

The "normal" data recovery.

What is the prerequisite for data recovery? Correct, data must have been deleted from a terminal device. Which several reasons this can have, we have already described above. Let us outline a concrete case: an employee is preparing a customer project and, in the rush, and haste he accidentally deletes a folder in which important documents are stored. Now, of course, he tries to recover the data. What to do now? First of all, do not panic, if the terminal device is part of a cloud system, check there if the data can be found there, if not, no need to worry. Because even if their data is no longer visible and findable for you, the data is still on your device, you can only find this data. But why is it that data that has been deleted can still be found? Quite simply, the data is not deleted by the end device but converted into another file format and then stored in such a way that the user can neither find nor open the file. And as a result, this data can be found and recovered using special techniques, such as software solutions or machines.

Data recovery in a laboratory.

At the term laboratory many people think of people in clinical-sterile rooms, in white coats equipped with various equipment. This idea is not wrong in its entirety: in fact, laboratories in which more complex data recoveries are performed are subject to a certain standard. Among other things, this standard regulates the cleanliness that must be present in these rooms. As you can see, a data recovery in a laboratory is a high-quality matter, because it allows to recover data even from the most severely damaged devices. There is no need to explain why a lab recovery is more valuable for the data - after all, the data is recovered in a lab. In contrast, a traditional data recovery can also be recovered on-site, whether at the company's own offices or a branch office abroad.

On average, every third request we receive is a request to recover data. And the number of searches for such service providers is also increasing enormously.
