What to do After Data Recovery

Don’t know what to do next?

Review       Backup        Restore        

Review: Review your data as soon as possible after you receive it.  Data Savers, LLC keeps a copy of all recovered data on hand for ten (10) days after work is completed to allow you time to do this. After that, our copy is securely erased to help protect your privacy. During this period we can go back and rescan your data to help you find any important files you are unable to find. The reality is, sometimes we can’t get every file back, but if you wait too long, we can’t try. If you will need more time, just send us an email and we can lengthen the time we sore your data before erasure.  If you had a deleted file recovery, or there was directory damage, set aside sufficient time for this. Recoveries that include a lot of generic or “raw” data usually need extra time to sort and organize the data.  

Backup: All hard drives are subject to failure. This can happen at anytime, and usually occurs without warning. There is no better time than now to start a good habit of keeping multiple copies of your data at all times, including the data you just got back from your recovery. We recommend keeping at least two distinct copies of all of your data. Many former customers have even chosen to get a remote backup of their most critical files so they would be covered in case of fire or other natural disaster.  Don’t depend upon just a cloud back-up, as cloud data can fail too.

Restore:   If your computer’s main hard drive (containing  the operating system) fails,  it’s usually best to install a fresh operating system on a new drive, and then migrate the recovered data to it.  Sometimes this process is routine.  Other times is may be complicated by missing or damaged files in applications such as databases, e-mail files, etc.  Although we are happy to try to answer general questions, this operation is beyond the scope of the services that we offer.

If you experience difficulties, we recommend that you hire a consultant or service provider to optimize the results.  Database recoveries such as Quickbooks or Outlook may need database reconstruction services.

After working with two other companies who could not recover the wedding videos, we took the drive to Data Savers. Our wedding videos were recovered. They are true professionals and worth every penny!
