FAQ About Data Recovery

Can My Data Be Saved?

Computers are vulnerable to many mishaps, but some are more forgiving than others. In the case of a crash, the best scenario is a mechanical failure. If this is the issue with your hard drive, you might hear it clicking, grinding, or humming. Luckily, this type of malfunction can often be repaired by professionals, leaving your data safe and sound.

How Long Does Data Recovery Take?

data recoveryData recovery is a science, and the key is caution. While computer technicians prioritize expediency, they will have to be extra careful with the intricate moving parts of your hard drive. Any wrong or sudden movements could result in the erasure of your data. With this in mind, be prepared for the process to take a few business days.

How Do I Put Recovered Data Back on My Computer?

If your data can be recovered, it will be stored on a CD and given back to you. Because CDs and DVDs carry files that cannot be modified, you’ll need to copy the information to your new hard drive. Before doing so, make sure the drive has enough space.

How Can I Prevent This From Happening Again?

Since all hard drives inevitably crash, it’s essential to back up your data regularly. Whether you use a cloud storage service or an external hard drive, make sure to back up your most important files at least once a week.

If you have more questions about data recovery or would like to learn how to back up your current files, contact the team at Experimac Akron.
