One of the most common hardware failures is hard drive failure. We always recommend backup planning, but we understand that life happens and turning to a backup isn’t always an option. In many of these cases, we can recover important documents, home videos and photos, and other miscellaneous files even if you are unable to start the computer. Some of the most common reasons we are asked to recover files are:
- Accidental deletion
- Automated deletion / Command line deletion
- Credential loss
- Disk damage
- Virus or malware attacks
The most successful recovery attempts are performed on storage that has not been used since the deletion occurred. If you have an important file you need from a computer that will not completely boot or you have accidentally deleted a file, avoid repeated attempts to retrieve the file and consult with a professional as soon as possible to ensure the best chance of recovery.
