Data recovery is the process of salvaging data from damaged, failed, corrupted, or inaccessible secondary storage media when it cannot be accessed normally. Often the data is being salvaged from storage media formats such as hard disk drives, storage drives, CDs, DVDs, RAID, and other electronics. Recovery may be required due to physical damage to the storage device or logical damage to the file system that prevents it from being mounted by the host operating system. Although there is some confusion as to the term, data recovery can also be the process of retrieving and securing deleted information from a storage media for forensic purposes or spying.

If your computer stopped working or it hangs up on boot. There is still a chance that your data can be saved. Just because your computer wont start up, doesn’t necessarily mean that the hard drive is damaged.
If you hear a constant “ticking” or “clicking” sound when your computer is trying to boot up could indicate a failed hard drive mechanics and may need to be sent to a “clean room” where the drive or media can be disassembled, rebuilt and recovered.

Another way to avoid having to do a data recovery is to insure you have a proper backup.
The best way to backup your data is to use a cloud based backup. They are inexpensive and a must have to insure you have all of your valuable data stored in a safe place. I have been using a service called OpenDrive for my backups. They are very affordable and easy to use. Pretty much a set it and forget it backup.
