How to increase the data recovery success rate?
After deleting files accidentally, we always would like to know how to recover the files. We can understand that all customers will be anxious on such thing, but please, just don’t take any wrong actions to try the recovery. In our years of experience, we have found that most of the failures on recovery are caused by wrong actions. So we will provide some tips about how to increase the success rate for the data recovery.
Let’s suppose that you have recognized the files were deleting, now what should we do?
Turn off the power and stop using your computer.
Don’t try to recover if you have not got a scientific way. Recovery is based on the complete of the data and file structure, any action to the hard drive may destroy the data or the file structure. We suggest you just turn off the power and stop using your computer or laptop. So how about the SD card or flash disk? Of course, just stop using such cards as soon as you have recognized the data loss issues.
Don’t save any new files or format the hard drive.
Save or format (re-format) will destroy the original data and the file structure, this is the main causes of failure on file recovery. You can image what we want to get is the original files, if the data or the file structure is destroyed, we will get the destroyed files back, it’s unless and can read or open. But in most of the cases, you may still have to install Hdata Recovery Software on the drive, is this ok? Yes, it’s really not good but it’s what you have to do, just keep in mind that you may install the Hdata Recovery where the files were not located previously.
Save your files recovered to an external disk or flash disk.
In the data recovery industry, hard drive crash (physical damage) would be a fatal problem for data recovery. Some of the hard drive crash may be easy to recognized but not for all. If we save the files recovered on the same drive and the drive crashed, you may lost the files again. It will be very hard for a second recovery on a crash hard drive, we don’t need to take the risk. Any time you got the deleted files back, just make sure you save these files on an external disk or a flash disk, this will be 100% keep those files save.
