What are the chances your data can be recovered? Very likely. But you must act immediately. The longer you wait the less chance there is of recovering all of the data. Turn off your computer and do not turn it back on, do not attach the hard drive to any other computer. You then call us. In many instances, the hard drive can be wholly brought back to life.
As part of our service maintenance, we will put a backup system in place that eliminates the costly need of retrieving data from a hard drive. Depending on the size of your business, we will install a backup system with capacity in the terabytes.
There are other measures that we recommend you implement such as RAID and an backup of data to an isolated box with easy access. We implement safe backup strategies but hope that you never have to use the most intrusive.
