How Does Data Loss Happen?
Data loss occurs when valuable, sensitive, or private information saved on a computer or another storage device is damaged, resulting in the inability to open or access files. It can be caused by a variety of factors, such as:
Damage to the hard drive – Hard drives can be damaged as a result of dropping, mishandling, or misuse. They can also fail due to overheating caused by dust accumulation. Over time, like any other machine, they can also wear out and eventually stop working.
Viruses or malware – Phishing emails are quite common these days, and if you are not careful about the links you click on or files you download, viruses or malware can sneak onto your device and damage your files, causing data loss.
Human error – Spilling coffee on the computer or accidentally deleting or overwriting important files on a drive are common mistakes that can lead to data being irretrievable.
What Should You Do To Protect Your Data?
Data loss, whether in a business or personal setting, can create a lot of stress and headache. To avoid it, it’s best practice to back up your files. Our best practice for data recovery in Chicago is making sure to have at least one extra copy of all of your important files and data. You can produce physical copies, store data on a flash drive or an external hard drive, or upload to cloud storage. You should also use anti-virus software to stop virus and malware attacks. Keeping your computer in a safe, clean, and dry environment is also important. If for whatever reason you’re unable to retrieve important files from your hard disk or storage device, Micro Center can assist with data recovery and data backup.
