Frequently Asked Questions

The data recovery process typically involves several stages to retrieve lost or damaged data from storage devices. Here’s a breakdown of the steps involved:

  1. Assessment: The data recovery service provider evaluates the situation by examining the storage device and determining the cause of data loss or inaccessibility.

  2. Device Repair (if necessary): If the storage device has physical damage, it may require repairs before data recovery can begin. Skilled technicians perform necessary repairs using specialized equipment and techniques.

  3. Creating Disk Images: Once the device is stable, a disk imaging process is performed. This involves creating a sector-by-sector copy or image of the entire storage device. The copy helps to protect the original data and ensures that the recovery process doesn’t cause further damage.

  4. Data Extraction: Using advanced data recovery software and tools, the technicians work on the disk image to extract the lost or damaged data. They employ various techniques to identify and recover the data, including file system reconstruction, searching for file signatures, and accessing data fragments.

  5. Data Restoration: After successfully recovering the data, the technicians verify its integrity and begin the restoration process. They may repair corrupted files, reassemble fragmented data, or reconstruct the file structure to ensure a usable outcome.

  6. Delivery of Recovered Data: The recovered data is then transferred to a new storage medium, such as an external hard drive or a cloud storage platform. The service provider delivers the restored data to the client, ensuring its privacy and security throughout the process.

While data recovery services aim for a high success rate, there are situations where data recovery may not be possible. Factors such as severe physical damage, extensive overwriting of data, or extreme corruption can significantly reduce the chances of successful recovery. However, skilled technicians employ specialized tools and techniques to maximize the chances of successful data retrieval.

PITS Global Data Recovery Services prioritizes customer privacy and employ stringent security measures to protect your data.
