Have you ever stopped to consider the impact on your business if you lost your data? Well, to most companies it could be a pretty devastating loss. All your email, all your data, all your intellectual property, all of this could be wiped out if you don’t have a backup of your data and if the disk that’s hosting all this information suffers some damage.
And all hard disks have a life time. This lifetime is called MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) and is usually measures in hundred of thousands of hours. In fact, most modern disks can usually go quite a few years without an issue. But they don’t last forever. One day a disk will fail, and if you don’t have a backup, your goose could be well and truly cooked.
Luckily there are companies out there that can help you in a situation like this. They focus on the recovery of your data from disks that are no longer readable. One such company is called Data Clinic and they specialise predominantly in Data recovery services. They can recover data from hard disks which have been damaged by a variety of different scenarios. Your disk could have been damaged by firmware corruption or circuit board malfunction. Or it could have logical errors, or even been subjected to a head crash. Data Clinic will take your hard disk, investigate the cause of the failure in their labs, and then endeavour to recover as much data as possible.
It’s definitely a site you need to know about. You may not need it today, you may not need it tomorrow; but sooner or later one of your disks may fail with some critical data on it and you’re going to need someone to recover it. You can even find them on Twitter or on Facebook. Bookmark them today!
