Why choose expert Data Recovery Services over just Doing-It-Yourself?

Data Recovery is like fixing your own car. Would you do it yourself?

Being the do-it-yourself Aussie is ideal for many kinds of problem solving… but what do you really know about Data Recovery? To illustrate this point, let’s look at something we all think we know enough about like cars. Most people have a better idea of what could be wrong with their car that breaks down than when their server or computer flashes blue screens of death, goes on the fritz, frys or smokes. We know that mechanics fix cars because they know where to isolate problems quickly, they understand the mechanics intimately, have many expensive tools to effectively do their jobs and have a lot of experience fixing the same or similar problems to your car troubles. So too do Data Recovery experts about your computer hard disks, servers or Raid devices.

What would be the point of trying then to fix your car yourself or pay the lowest bidder to try and fix it for you? In 90% of DIY cases like this whether it is a car or a computer hard drive, the operative word “try” implies a limited degree of success which shrinks as the complexity of the task increases. This all sounds like common sense doesn’t it? One would think so but for some reason, this same, sound logic is not applied to the often more complex and costly risks of applying effective and professional Data Recovery services to retrieve vital and often irreplaceable data and information. Data Detect is Australia’s premier Data Recovery service provider and there are some VERY good reasons why you should consider at the very least contacting them to find out what your data recovery options are. Some great reasons include that you’ll:

Mac Data Recovery Services from Data Detect

So if that beautiful Mac machine or Mac device of yours suddenly stops and doesn’t respond, smokes or breaks down, your best bet (besides keeping your head) to recovering your precious and irreplaceable data is to start looking for professional Mac data recovery services.

How would you know if you are an ideal candidate for Mac Data Recovery Services? Are any of the following thoughts steaming through your head:

  • My Mac doesn’t even switch on!
  • I can see or smell smoke coming from my machine!
  • I dropped my machine and now it wont turn on!
  • My machine has suffered water or fire damage!
  • My Mac simply won’t boot up / I cant access my OS-X operating system!
  • I’ve accidentally formatted my Mac hard drive or a drive patrician that had important data on it!
  • There are strange clicking sounds coming from my Mac / device!
  • My Mac applications keep crashing or won’t run at all!
  • I think my computer has been infected by a virus!
  • I’ve accidentally deleted files and / or directories!
  • I can’t hear my hard disk spinning!

If they are, then you have some important choices to make. If you can access and run the Mac Disk Utility (available on Mac OS-X), you can create a virtual disk that may restore your Mac system to a previous working state. If this fails (or you can’t even access it) and you are technically savvy and have the time to try and perform Mac data recovery yourself, then there are demo versions of data recovery software out there that might assist you. Once you have determined whether or not a specific software is right for your particular problem (presuming you know exactly what the problem is of course), then you would need to purchase the software and attempt a Mac data recovery yourself.

The data recovery of important information is not a straight forward process and it is not recommended that you take your Mac down to the local cyber jack computer store geek or even attempt to perform a Mac Data Recovery yourself unless you really know what you’re doing. Problems involving deleted data recovery for example can be very complex and the wrong approach can lead to even more damage.

Forensic Recovery – Cache 24

The world of television and film has influenced users to think of crime laboratories, where evidence is analysed, to be clean white areas with microscopes and glass jars. Data recovery isn’t far from that image. They do have clean rooms, which resemble a lab. These rooms are purely there to be able to recover data without any environmental factors affecting the hardware.

There is another area where evidence labs and data recovery overlap and that is in forensic data. Data recovery specialists are able to analysis the data on PCs and provide digital evidence on any activity. This has been a great assistance in crime fighting; especially murder cases, where users are acquiring information off the Internet before committing the crime.

But before you panic about what your daily searches will reveal, you should know that the information is highly detailed. Data specialists are able to tell the difference between an obscene pop-up ad and a specific search for crime information. For criminals, clearing the cache won’t help. Data recovery specialists have mastered retrieving files from the memory, regardless of a clean cache or not.

Forensic Data is becoming a common procedure to find evidence in murder cases. Recently, it was used when Indian PhD student, Anurag Johri killed his wife with a baseball bat. Prosecutors were able to reveal that the day before the killing, Anurag was searching for terms such as “tips with killing with a baseball bat” and “how to murder someone and not get caught.”

Data Detect has had more than 30 years combined experience in the data recovery industry. One of the services that they provide is Forensic Recovery. They are able to secure evidence from an entire system, network or data storage device. From the information they will be able to conclude whether data has been erased or damaged.

They are able to search on the system, using keywords, numbers, files or even phrases to find specific data. Once the digital information is found, they can verify if there was unlawful use of proprietary information or if an authenticate software license was breached.

In another murder case study, a woman attempted to kill her husband by giving him anti-freeze in his wine. Her husband managed to live through the ordeal, but is now blind and deaf from the poisoning. The wife was hoping he would pass on so she could use his life insurance to pay off mounting debts. According to reports, she had been researching ways to kill her husband of seven years, on Google.

Data Detect is able to repair altered or damaged data through a variety of computer investigation methods. With the advantages of having clean rooms, they are able to control and fully document an assessment of the computer media.

Forensic data isn’t a service that is used only for criminal investigations. Data Detect provides it for the public as well, in recovering or repairing data for personal use. They are able to assist in finding lost files and emails, which have either gone missing due to error or physical damage.

Continuous Data Protection

Loss of data is a major concern for all businesses everywhere. It doesn’t matter what type of business it is or how big or small it is, if valuable data is lost it can set them back weeks or months and will cost them time and money. One solution to this problem is continuous data protection (CDP), also known as continuous backup. CDP works by automatically saving and capturing all versions of data that a user saves. It enables the user to restore data from a specific point in time.

This function of specific time restoration is what differentiates CDP from traditional backup systems. With a traditional backup you can only restore the data from the point at which the backup was taken. With CDP, the data is written to a disk and to a second location on another computer on the network.

You need to be careful when buying your CDP as some packages are marketed as continuous data protection but in fact only restore data at fixed intervals e.g. 1 hour ago or 24 hours ago. These types of solutions are often called “snapshot based”. At the moment there is some debate regarding the term “continuous” and whether or not the backup needs to be “every write” in order to be considered CDP or whether a solution that captures data every few seconds is acceptable. There is also some debate on whether or not the ability to restore from the backup also has to be continuous. The Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) uses the “every write” definition.

CDP also differs from RAID replication and mirroring, as this technology only protects the most recent copy of the data. If corruption occurs it will protect the corrupt data. CDP, on the other hand, protects against the effects of the corruption by installing a previous, uncorrupted version of the data.

A last benefit of CDP is that is takes up less space that traditional backup systems. CDP solutions save byte or block level differences rather than file level differences. Therefore only the changed byte or block is backed up whereas in traditional back ups the entire file is copied.

If you want to save your business time and expense CDP solutions seem the logical choice as your data is automatically saved without you even having to think about it. It is also easy to restore. If, however, something goes wrong anyway and you find that your data seems irretrievably lost, its nice to know that you can always take your computer to a data recovery specialist and be secure in the knowledge that you are in safe hands.
