| Data Recovery For All Types Of Computer Data Loss Emergencies
Data loss disasters can occur at any time, and usually you have little warning. Vantage provides fast, comprehensive data recovery and file restoration for data loss emergencies arising from:
- Hardware and/or Software Failures
- Human Error, Sabotage or Vandalism
- Power Related Problems
- Natural Disasters (Fires, Floods, etc.)
Murphy's Law states " Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong". And things usually go wrong at the absolute worst possible moment. With that in mind, we have listed some suggestions, or general guidelines to follow when a data loss disaster strikes:
First - Do Not Panic
If you have experienced a loss of data due to hardware or software failure, virus infection, vandalism, human mistakes, etc. - remember to remain calm. In many cases, data loss problems are not nearly as devastating as they might appear. Professional data recovery efforts can minimize further damage, and maximize the chances for a complete recovery of lost information.
Inexperienced efforts at recovering data, no matter how well-intentioned, often result in making matters worse. If the data is critical, do not allow any action to be taken that may write to (or possibly further damage) the affected storage media. This would include, for example, putting power to a hard drive exposed to water, or using commercially available recovery utilities to try to recover data. Although some commercial data recovery utilities can be useful to an end-user in specific situations, in some cases their use could result in the destruction of the very data you're trying to save. The chances for successful data recovery are greatly improved when media is received by Vantage in an "original" or "as failed" condition.
Second - Tell Us What Happened
This is an extremely critical (but often overlooked) step in the recovery process. Take a minute to document what led to the data loss situation. Remember, the more information we have, the faster we can retrieve your data.
Our Data Recovery Services Form can help organize this information quickly, and provides us with the basics needed to begin the evaluation and recovery process. As a general rule, the more information we have about your system, storage media, and events leading to the data loss problem, the faster we are able to recover your needed files.
It's easy to use our form. Once the form opens, you can fill in the information on-line, print it and/or save a copy to your system. It can also be saved and/or printed as a blank form and filled in by hand. It's your choice. Enclose the form in the box with your media, and we will begin the recovery evaluation process the moment your shipment arrives.
Third - Relax
Vantage has been providing emergency data recovery and restoration, disaster recovery, and file recovery services for all types of media and operating environments since 1989. It's our one and only business.
