When do you need it?
Recovering of data or any file may be necessary on any, but not limited to the following situations:
- During an operating system (OS) failure. This is the most common scenario or situation wherein you need to perform data recovery. The goal of data recovery in this situation is to simply retrieve and copy all important or necessary files to another disk or storage.
- During a disk-level failure. This usually happens if your computer or external hard drive has a compromised disk partition file system or a hard disk failure. However, data or files cannot easily be read in this situation. This may involve the following: repairing the file system, master boot record or partition table or a hard disk recovery.
- If files have been deleted or “accidentally” deleted from any storage medium. The files or the content of the file are not removed permanently or completely, but only references to those files are removed, so files or data may still be recoverable.
