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.
My name is Hasanuzzaman Sattar. I live in Kolkata, India’s second largest city, and a major tourist attraction. I am a 31-year-old Software Engineer with remarkable skill in all fields of Internet technology.
Where I come from
I come from a middle-class Indian family and was born on the 4th of March 1986 in one of the rural areas of the West Bengal state. My hometown is Baharampur situated in the central part of West Bengal. I am the only son in a family of three children, my two elder sisters are married and my father is a former high school teacher.
Even though I come from a humble background, I have always been an outstanding student. By the year 2003, I had completed my higher secondary education with exceptional grades in all the science subjects. By the year 2005, I was right and ready for the West Bengal University of Technology’s entrance exams. I was one of the top candidates to be selected for Engineering and went on to attain a bachelor’s degree in Engineering with Electronics and Communication. At the age of 23 years, in 2009, I was qualified and ready for professional work.
What I am Today
In December 2009, I joined the Hightech Lab Company as a junior software developer only to rise after a period of 3 months to the post of Project Manager! I’ve always been brilliant at generating various types of software and after a further working experience of 3 months, I decided it was time to take the jump. In May 2010, after having worked for just 6 months, I successfully launched my very own software company, ALSOFT.
Furthermore, I am an expert at planning disaster recovery for data centers; handling implementation and management procedures of huge databases. Web software development is my dream and I am up to facing all types of challenges relating to computer technology over the internet. I am the ideal person for dynamic website designing and development and have a vast experience in GUI software design.
I am a highly ambitious programmer and my true goal is to enhance ALSOFT’s standing on the Internet as a top ranking online service provider like Google and Bing. On 21st August 2015, I launched this website: http://www.aldictionary.com. Its ranking info is on http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/aldictionary.com. In just 2 years, this website has 5000 unique visitors from all over the world. I look forward to creating an efficient single platform for all internet users to educate or simply enjoy themselves. I am currently in the process of developing such services; a few have been launched and more are on the way.
Facing problems and challenges is something I enjoy doing. I’m not referring to just simple problems which may easily be solved by using the right formula or appropriate reference material but complicated problems. Complications requiring innovative solutions or brainstorming design requirements. I enjoy being pushed to the limits of trying to figure out what actually could be done with any particular material or method.
