Yesterday, my laptop suddenly shut down and didn’t start again. When I took it for repair, I found out that my hard disk has crashed, but the provider assured they’ll try for risk-free data recovery.
I have not decided yet, but, I want to know how to calculate data loss risk?
While that is one best case scenario, most of us start meddling to recover data. We download various software, try different services, read online solutions, and when nothing works, we contact a risk-free data recovery service provider.
By then, although we may be very optimistic, we know there is a chance that we have done extra damage.
Permanent Data Loss Risk
Every time you use a hit and trial method for recovering data, you are causing more damage that can lead to permanent data loss.
Multiple failed attempts at recovering data can make these changes irreversible, and by the time you’ll reach a data recovery provider, you would have caused permanent damage.
Note: In any such scenario, instead of blindly trying anything, contact Stellar Data Recovery. For instance, if there is data loss from a crashed external hard drive, then there can be any physical or logical issues.
If you keep tampering with the hard drive, you can permanently lose data.
Permanent Data Loss Situations
If you fail to take professional help for data loss and keep trying hit and trial methods, you can lose your data permanently.
It can happen in following ways:
· Logical damage
After realizing that you have lost data, you try various things such as formatting, restoring, restarting, and using data recovery software.
Whether you believe it or not, this causes further damage. Let’s say you format the hard drive for recovering data.
By doing this, you may have removed the table of contents of the drive. In another case, if you download software for risk-free data recovery, you can overwrite data and lose the previous files permanently.
· Physical damage
Physical damage can happen when you trust an amateur with your data. They may open up the drive in an unprotected environment or use an unauthorized software on the drive.
Moreover, if this person doesn’t know what he is doing, he might end up losing your data forever due to physical damage.
Note: Sometimes, using a data recovery software may help you recover the files, but it will not be able to detect the physical or hardware damages in your drive or device.
These may go undetected, and while you may have recovered the data, you won’t be able to prevent data loss risk.
Data Breach Risk
If we keep everything aside, then more than anything your data may be at risk of being used unethically. If you randomly pick a data recovery provider, then this person or organization can unethically use your data.
· For organizations, this lost data can involve employees and customers’ confidential information.
This can be financial data, and putting this data in wrong hands can cause you a lot of financial damage.
· For individuals, it can be anything confidential that can be misused. There can be pictures, private files, identity cards, or bank account details stored on the drive that can be misused.
Tip: Avoid going to random stores for data loss solutions as this can put forth data breach risk. If not that, the people working in these stores may not be skilled and certified and they can cause physical or logical damage to the drive. And we all know, when that happens, you might not be able to retrieve your data at all.
