Recovering Lost Data


        Radio on FacebookJoin us on Facebook

Having a good backup system and process is critical, but what happens if data is lost? A 2007 Harris study revealed the following:

  • 38 percent of data loss is due to drive failure, 30 percent of that is due to drive read issues due to corrupt or degraded media
  • 13 percent due to corruption due to software or viruses
  • 12 percent due to human error

    Of course, this doesn't include fire, water damage, physical destruction, electrical destruction and theft. Other studies indicate of all data losses, only 80 percent of recovery is possible in most cases.
