Questions about Data Recovery

Q1: What is data recovery?
A1: Data recovery is the process of salvaging data from damaged, failed, corrupted, or inaccessible secondary storage media when it cannot be accessed normally. Often the data are being salvaged from storage media such as hard disk drives, storage tapes, CDs, DVDs, RAID, and other electronics. Recovery may be required due to physical damage to the storage device or logical damage to the file system that prevents it from being mounted by the host operating system.

Q2: What is important to know when data loss occurs?
A2: When data loss occurs, it is important to understand that it is not gone forever. Instead, there are high chances to recover the lost data. Follow the next steps: Do not write any more data on corrupted media. Close all applications and, when possible, avoid saving any data. Shut down your computer. Try not to be panic and recover the lost data in a hurry. This could lead to even more data loss. If your data is very important, call a data recovery specialist.

Q3: What causes data loss?
A3: There are many factors that contribute to data loss. Natural disaster, computer virus, data corruption, computer crime or human errors are examples that may result in the data loss. Typically, one or more of the following symptoms may appear:

  • 1. BIOS could not detect the hard disk drive
  • 2. "Operating system not found" error
  • 3. Power surges result in "no disk drive found" error
  • 4. Strange clicking or grinding noises from hard disk drive
  • 5. No normal spinning action from disk drives
  • 6. Missing folders or files without reasons
  • 7. Accidental deletion, format or partition loss
  • 8. Natural disasters due to fire, water, crash
  • 9. Files and folders cannot be accessed and more...
  • 10. Viruses attack

Q4: In what case couldn't I recovery my data?
A4: In these cases you cannot recover data:

  • 1. When data have been physically overwritten on a hard disk it is generally assumed that the previous data are no longer possible to recover.
  • 2. Physical damage. Recovering data from physically-damaged hardware can involve multiple techniques. Some damage can be repaired by replacing parts in the hard disk. This alone may make the disk usable, but there may still be logical damage.

Q5: Can I recover data from a formatted disk?
A5: Generally, our software can recover data from formatted disk if the data is not overwritten, just depends on how you format the disk.

Q8: If I have accidentally deleted some photos from my digital camera, can I still recover them?
A8: Yes, digital camera memory card is a kind of removable device, when you delete photos from your camera, they are not erased forever, and in fact they are still recoverable. Do not take any photos after you have deleted your photographs as there are chances that your lost photos may be overwritten by the new photos.

Q9: Can I restore the data to same memory card from which I am recovering?
A9: No, do not restore the data to same location from which you are recovering. This will reduce the chances of recovery by overwriting the files in your media causing permanent data loss.

Q10: If I deleted some files and even emptied them from the Recycle Bin, can I recover my data?
A10: Yes. When a file is emptied from the recycle bin, the content of the file is not lost but the name of the file is removed from the Recycle Bin List. The deleted space in the drive will be utilized to store another file but before the replacement takes place the file can be recovered by using Namosofts Data Recovery.

Q11: Can I recover accidentally deleted folder with files and subfolders all at once?
A11: Yes, Namosofts can recover accidentally deleted folder with files and subfolders all at once.
