In the previous article with the title DATA RECOVERY FOR LAPTOPS PART 1, we ended off by describing data recovery without the aid and assistance of a software, in other words, a program designed especially for the recovery of lost data. I do not want to carry on with other themes of data recovery for laptops without providing readers with some further guidance on this issue. Laptop hard drive failure leading to the need for the memory loss recovery process described in the previous article seems deceptively easy as it is completed in a couple of paragraphs. I assume, however, that the actions may not always be as easy as the words appear to indicate. Take for example the instruction that in most cases the hard drive of your broken laptop should be removed and used in another instrument called a hard drive adapter. There are so many makes and models of laptops and computers and each one will present with its own tricks when it comes to the removal of the hard disk.
That is why I want to refer readers to the availability of tutorials and videos that provide step by step indications on a laptop data crash and what precisely is required to recover laptop memory loss from your hard drives. Some of the help available applies to specific makes and models only, while others are of a more general nature and can be used for any laptop. A good description of the process that applies to all laptops including iMac’s can be found at http://www.wikihow.com/Recover-Data-from-the-Hard-Drive-of-a-Dead-Laptop. At the end of this tutorial, there is also a video coaching the same information for those who prefer a visual instrument above a mere description. Two YouTube video tutorials https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u98Cgh5pTFA, and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hsed59DWtbQ are both helpful in providing advice with laptop file loss, and the process of recovery with an abundance of similar materials on the Internet.
The age old saying that prevention is better than cure, is also true of the illnesses sneaking up on your laptop. Take the wise preventative medicine of storing copies of your long-term data so that easy retrieval is effortless when disaster strikes. An external hard disk is an essential tool in the management of your computer. But the life of hard drives is finite and therefore alternative sources of storage should also be considered. Apple provides both iTunes and iCloud to the world, platforms where Apple stores data like music, videos, files and more. The benefit of this way of storage is that it is left in the hands of professionals where failure is next to impossible. The facilities are available for Mac laptops as well as those run on the Windows programs. When data is lost, retrieval is facile and instantaneous. In addition, storing files on Windows libraries take those files out of the hard drive and make them recoverable even if there is a glitch with the hard drive. Lastly, mention should be made of commercially available back-ups where all your data is stored automatically. Recovery is a simple process when storage is attended to in a responsible and controlled way.
I mentioned previously that not all data loss is due to failure of your computer or the systems operating it. Human error too can lead to the loss of data. A single finger fault and the document that you have been working on may be lost. These are usually easy to retrieve. Here are some examples:
I end of this section on hard drive data recovery for laptops by encouraging users to not give up too easily on your valued data. There is so much information on the Internet. Google will help to recover data and so will YouTube come to your assistance. Just a little research can provide users with solutions that will offer pleasantly surprises. Be specific about the manufacturer of the laptop and the problem experienced, follow the advice and expect relief and satisfaction to follow. Through Windows recovery of data is highly likely with the helpful aid provided by the Windows manufacturer. I was recently advised by Microsoft to change the program on my laptop from Windows 7 to Windows 10. Having done so I experienced a loss of sound on the system with and without headphones. In less time that it would have taken me to take the laptop to an agent and return home I resolved the issue by following the advice I obtained from the internet. Like grandma's trusted recipes just use the ingredients recommended and follow the step by step instructions to successful recovery, in my case data loss on two drivers that required updating.
