Cause of data loss and its recovery solutions

Loss of data can happen to any device or media that stores data. There are many reasons behind the data loss. These causes of data loss can be categorized in two major categories. These are:

Physical Cause

This loss occurs when the physical components of the computer get damaged. The causes of physical damage are clicking, grinding, spinning or other strange noises from you computer. The reasons include:

o The read/write head damage of the hard drive
o Physical hard drive crash
o Disk controller failure
o Short circuit
o Natural calamities like flood, fire etc.
o Power failure
o System drop down specially in laptops

If any of the above situations occur, you should quickly shut down the system and shouldn’t attempt any kind of self treatment to the hard drive.

Logical Cause

The other category of data loss reasons is logical data loss. The logical data loss is the situation where all of the hardware components are intact, only the stored data becomes inaccessible. The reasons of logical data loss are as follows:

o Accidental deletion or hard drive formatting
o Virus attack
o File system corruption
o Hard drive logical partition deletion
o Operating system corruption
o Corrupted programs
o Faulty backup software or media
o Application non compatibility with operating system
o Employee sabotage
o MBR Failure
o Boot sector corruption
o Cross linked files

In the above situations of logical data loss, you shouldn’t perform any write operation on the hard drive and shouldn’t install or uninstall any software. It can overwrite the data and can make it inaccessible forever.

With the help of advanced techniques of the data recovery, you can recover your lost data in both of the data loss situations i.e. physical and logical data loss.

The recovery solutions for both of these situations are different. In case of physical data loss, you need to take help of data recovery experts.
