Data Recovery Best Insurance Policy?

Information is one of our most precious commodities and most of us should do a better job of guarding against information loss.

Information is priceless. There is no question that the value of information contained on a corporate computer or server has extreme value. Most of the time, we know exactly what value that kind of information has. Why then do many of us take the chance of losing precious, priceless data due to the lack of having data recovery software on our computers?

File recovery software is perhaps the most economical form of insurance there is. For little financial investment, all corporations could be totally protected against virtually every kind of file deletion scenario there is. Even the best intentioned of us, can still accidentally delete files even when we’re trying to be extremely careful. It even happens to the best of companies.

“We would receive Panic Calls every few weeks asking about a file that had been deleted,” says the IT Director of a major healthcare company. “The deletion always occurred between our scheduled backups.”

It is estimated that deletions, accidental or not, cost the U.S. economy tens of billions of dollars annually.

Getting a good data recovery program just isn’t something that we apparently think about until it’s too late. The very fact that deletions happen to big corporation who at least attempt to protect themselves with tape backup, means that the average computer user has likely deleted a great many important files that he or she never meant to delete.

There are many situations where the deletion will bypass the Recovery Bin, and, in the case of “save overs”, the Recovery Bin does not offer protection.

“Save overs”, for those not familiar with this term, is what happens when you “save” a document over another document. For example, if you make changes to document “A”, and then simply hit the Save icon, you just lost all of the data in your original document.

The best insurance against catastrophe is to simple find and install a good file recovery program. One of the better ones is a program called Undelete by Diskeeper Corporation.

One of the unique features of Undelete is its Emergency Undelete, which can recover data that is lost even before the software was installed.

Undelete also has a “Version Control” which allows users to recover files that have been “saved over”, which is a great insurance policy against one of the prime sources of deletions.

The bottom line is that if your data is valuable to you and you cannot afford to lose it, don’t take chances. Go to Google, search the net with a search term like “data recovery” and find a software program that’s going to give you piece of mind and ensure no more accidents.
