How much data can be salvage?
As a Singapore data recovery centre, we often received this enquiry from many customers. They wanted to know the chance of recovery and the amount of data that can be recovered. Does the Singapore data recovery centre know the amount of data that can recover? The answer is no. Why? Let us explain some of these enquiries.
What data is available?
In fact, we are unable to access any data when the drive is inaccessible. In Singapore, a data recovery centre will assist to check the faulty device and seek for user's advice before recovery. The specific tools will be used to identify the failure of the device. It helps to access the firmware without having to burden the storage device. In some complicated cases, we will not be able to access the firmware or sectors until the recovery process is done. Thus, we are unable to know what data is available.
What is the percentage of recoverable data?
In data recovery, we cannot estimate the amount of recoverable data. Usually, the possibility of recovery will be provided after the assessment. It is an estimated rate that indicates the chances to access data sectors. By identifying the device’s symptoms and the types of failure, the recovery specialist will provide an estimated rate based on previous experiences. Upon confirmation of service, the specialist will recover all salvageable data from the device’s sectors. The outcome might be complete recovery or partial recovery, which will only be known by the user.
Let's imagine this：
Sectors is your storerooms.
Firmware is a manager from your company who handling all available rooms.
Data Recovery Centre act as a third-party cleaning services agency.
Manager from your company leaves without a proper handover. You need to engage a third-party agency to clean and arrange all available rooms. But, some rooms were collapsed and inaccessible. You know that your storerooms are not fully utilize, the collapsed room might be empty or storing some item. The agency will not know it except the manager who left. What they can do is only cleaning all accessible rooms.
Data recovery It is a process that salvages, retrieve and extract data from faulty storage devices. Before the recovery done, you are unable to access or view the data.
