RAID Data Recovery If you're a corporate executive or work in medium-to-large business, you may use a raid data server for data storage. But you may never think twice about how it works. When it crashes, though, you know there's trouble. And, as reliable (after all, RAID stands for Redundant Array of Independent Disks) as they are, there's a lot that can go wrong with these complicated devices.  Let's take a look at how a raid server works.  A raid array is designed to: - protect your data against loss with an added level of duplication - provide higher input/output speeds In some cases, a raid array also provides additional storage capacity. Since this set-up does not offer data redundancy, though, you lose the benefits of added data storage reliability typical with many raid servers.

Flash drive Recovery When they were first introduced many years ago, flash drives were commonly called “thumb drives,” “key drives,” or sometimes by their more proper name, “USB drives.” It was easy to see how they got these nicknames. Flash drives aren't much larger than your thumb, and people often carried them around on key chains. Also, you inserted them into the USB port of your computer much like you insert a key into a keyhole. Back then, flash drives held, at most, 2MB of data, and were primarily the domain of IT experts. “Computer geeks” wore these odd-looking drives on lanyards around their neck, soliciting strange looks from the people whose computers they worked on when they inserted one of these mystical devices into the USB port of their PC.

Hard Drive Recovery You're not running a business on your computer. You don't even trust the Internet to pay your bills. Most of the files on your hard drive are photos of the grandchildren, school papers from those night classes you took, and family recipes. But now your computer isn't booting up and you're not sure what to do. The contents of your hard drive aren't worth a lot -- but they mean a lot to you. At 24HourData, we understand that not every hard drive recovery involves sensitive corporate data, top secret government files, or financial statements for a Fortune 500. But that doesn't mean the data isn't important.

External Drive Recovery Many people use an external hard drive that connects to their PC or Mac for easy and convenient data back-up. This may seem like a good, cost-effective data back-up solution, especially for individual users and small business owners. But consider these facts about external hard drive data storage: - If you store your external hard drive in the same location as your computer system, it is subject to the same dangers, including floods, fires and theft. If someone steals your computer, what's to stop them from taking your external hard drive, too? - If files become infected with a computer virus on your PC, those same files will still be corrupt and unreadable when you back them up to your external hard drive. - An external hard drive can suffer shock damage from being dropped

Fire-Prevention October is National Fire Prevention Month. The National Fire Protection Association is focusing on educating businesses and individuals about the use of smoke alarms to prevent injury and the spread of fire.  In addition to injuries and property damage, fires can cause the loss of important company data. But if a fire in your office building is detected and exterminated early enough, a professional data recovery firm may still be able to access your data.  Fire Damage Requires Physical and Logical Data Recovery When your hard drive is damaged by extensive heat caused by a fire, it may require both physical and logical data recovery services. During a physical data recovery, your data recovery firm will work to repair aspects of a hard drive or other storage media that may have been damaged. Data recovery can even -- in some cases -- restore data from melted storage media.

Data Recovery Cost When faced with data loss this is one of the first questions that comes to mind. Is Data Recovery going to cost me thousands of dollars? The answer to this question is complicated. Pricing for Data Recovery depends on media type, drive size, and issue with the drive.  What kind of drive do you have? Is it a Hard Drive, RAID array, Mac Drive, SSD, Flash Drive, External Hard Drive, or Tape? Media type can make a huge difference in pricing. For instance, a Solid State Drive or a RAID array will be much more expensive to recover than a Hard Drive. Next, what size drive do you have? A 80GB Hard Drive will cost half the price to recover in most cases than a 1TB Hard Drive. Drive size is definitely makes a difference in pricing.
