If you want to avoid needing the services of a data retrieval expert, I'd suggest you read the following article by Craig Veness very carefully.

Craig is a data recovery expert from the Australian company, Data Retriever, and he offers some very valuable advice which could potentially save you hundreds, or perhaps thousands of dollars and hours of downtime.

Data Recovery - "I've lost everything" - How to Avoid Needing Data Retrieval
by Craig Veness of Data Retriever

As a data recovery professional, I'm often afforded the opportunity to answer people's questions about the safety of their files and digital information. In this day and age as we become increasingly tied to the internet, our computers and mobile phones, we increasingly entrust our digital lives to all manner of electronic computer chips and spinning discs for safe keeping.

Alongside our dependence upon all things electronic, portable devices also are becoming cheaper and bigger, seemingly every day. Twenty years ago all of our really important stuff would have likely fit several times over onto a single 1.44MB floppy disk! Today, with companies such as Apple squeezing 64GB of storage into its latest iPhone, suddenly it is very easy to transfer all your personal information, diary, calendar, music, photos and videos into a pocket-sized filing cabinet. This raises an important question: what happens when it all goes wrong?

"No, you don't understand. I cannot live without my phone!"

I remember one client some time ago whose phone had mysteriously stopped working. Like most people in her situation, she admitted at the time that she didn't care at all about the phone itself, but was very concerned about losing what was on it. While there are professional services that can retrieve data from dead or damaged devices, as the old saying goes, prevention is better than cure. Of course, this applies to all your data, be it a laptop or desktop computer, mobile phone, iPod, or anything else that stores your important files.

Back it up!

There's a slogan a company called Maxtor is currently using on the packaging of their external hard disk drive range: "Save your life". This is actually quite appropriate when you consider how we can rely upon our digital devices. Here are a few quick tips you can observe in daily life that can save you headache (and sometimes heartache) down the track:

There are many free and simple tools you can use that make following the above points much more simple, although there is one online tool you can use right now to start learning - Google (or other search engines of choice). There are articles online covering all sorts of situations and needs, from a simple back-up solutions to detailed recommendations for customising your small business' requirements. Let me whet your appetite with a recommended automated backup utility which you can download and use for free from CNET's, called SyncBack. You can find it here:

For Mac users, you already have an efficient backup utility built-in to your OS, called Time Machine. Just grab an external drive, plug it in and open Time Machine (located in Applications, but also has an icon at the top-right of screen near the clock).

Don't become one of my customers! Read online reviews and web forums, talk to your friendly local IT support person/service centre, and take responsibility for the safety of your data. After all, your own education is quite possibly your best protection!
