In computer-based terms, data recovery is an act of recovering (recovering) inaccessible, lost, corrupt, damaged or formatted data from removable media, hard drives or other computers. Data recovery can also be referred to as data retrieval. In simple terms, it involves recovering lost or misleted information from the computer’s hard drive, flash drive or other removable medium. There are different types of data recovery.
One type is called logical data recovery which recovers information from logical partitions. Logical partitions are partitions where data is saved. For example, if you have a Windows operating system installed in one computer and you use Linux operating system on another computer, you will have two different logical partitions. To recover data from these partitions, the software that helps you to recover deleted files must be able to recognize the partition’s file system. The most common types of this type of data recovery software include Stellar Phoenix Recovery and Data Rescue Pro.
Another type of data recovery tool supports data recovery from drives that are formatted. This can either be a CD-ROM drive or an external hard drive. When your computer encounters a problem in reading data from a formatted drive, the data recovery software that supports formatted drives can help you recover important data. Some examples of this type of data recovery software include Recovery Pro and Stellar Phoenix Restoration.
Another type of data recovery software can recover data from USB drives. USB is another term used for Universal Serial Bus. A USB is a very common peripheral that is used to connect a computer to peripherals such as digital camera, video recorder, printer and other devices. These devices usually contain data such as photos, music, documents, web pages and other data that need to be backed up on external hard disks. In most cases, when a USB device is deleted, it cannot be recovered.
One data recovery program that can recover data from USB attached devices is Disk Drill. This is one of the most popular tools for recovering data from USB attached disks and other removable disks such as memory sticks. Disk Drill also recovers data from other hard diskettes, CDs, DVDs, tapes and other diskettes including Zip disks and many more. In order to use the Disk Drill to recover data from USB attached disks, you need to unmount the disk and then follow the on screen instructions to format the disk using the Windows Partitioning tool.
If you want to get back your lost data, there are other data recovery tools that you can use. One of these is undelete data recovery tool. Uneraser is another software that recovers data from USB attached files. It works by searching for a particular file and then searching its directories and subdirectories. It should be noted that Uneraser does not only recover files from USB but also other drive partitions such as F partition, E partition, J partition and others. You can download Uneraser from its website.
Data Rescue II is another data recovery app which recover data from different types of hard drive partitions like FAT, NTFS and FAT32 partitions. It has a user-friendly interface and is very easy to operate. The great thing about this Windows software is that it can recover data even when the drive is either deleted or not. It can locate the files even when it was deleted. The only drawback of this software is that it does not recover files that were accidentally deleted like formatted drives. It can only recover files that were intentionally removed like those left by virus.
The final data recovery program in this article is called Advanced Data Recovery. This software can recover data from deleted USB mini drives, formatted partitions and even those that were partially deleted. It is designed in such a way that it can recover data from any type of Windows system. It has an advanced extraction technology that allows it to recover files even after a failure.
