New York Computer Repair: Data Recovery

There is nothing in the world of information technology as frustrating as losing data. Hardware failures, while potentially expensive, can be addressed and fixed with adequate funding. However, creative works can often be irreplaceable and while we are all aware of the importance of regular backups, there is always the potential for data loss. Thankfully, there are a number of solutions for recovering your precious files.

The first step in data recovery is to identify the source of the problem. It's a bit of an over-simplification, but the nature of the error can be either software or hardware based. If, for example, you have a corrupted catalog tree or directory structure, this can often be repaired via software. If you have data written in bad sectors, recovery can be more difficult. In the worst case situation, physical damage to drive platters may have occurred. For this sort of data recovery, it is recommended that one use a clean room which allows disassembly of the drive in a sterile environment. New York Computer Repair can work with you to find exactly how best to recover your data in the most economical manner.
