Ontrack In-Lab Data Recovery - Ontrack In-Lab Data Recovery

Most people have encountered, viruses and or software incompatibles that could corrupt their hard drive, at one time or another. In which case, you are most likely going to find yourself reformatting your hard drive and starting from scratch. However, there are those unlikely catastrophes that aren't software related, the most common of which is power outage/surge. Believe it or not, the problem is not the outage or surge itself. Rather, it is the return of power. Why? Well, prompt power fluctuations cause electrical components such as read/write heads to fail. When they do, the hard drive is still running with failed components, which in turn can corrupt the data stored. Aside from power related problems, other common problems are caused by abrupt head failure, water, and impacts.
