Is There a Better Way to Restore Your Files than Data Recovery Software?

Without reliable data backup for your business’ critical information, you are at risk of losing not only files, customer information, and accounting records but also your entire company. About 40 to 60 percent of small businesses never recover after a disaster causes them to lose significant business data. As such, many small business owners depend on data recovery software to restore lost files.

However, this process isn’t guaranteed to recover 100 percent of the lost or corrupted files. Luckily, there is a better way. Data backup and recovery services from EZComputer Solutions automatically back up your files every night with advanced encryption technology and plenty of cloud storage space for all your essential information. Best of all, we can provide this support without the associated risks that come with some file recovery programs.

Data Loss Can Happen to Any Business

If you’re not worried about losing data, you should be! Data loss can happen to any business, anywhere, at any time. When you think about all the potential risks to your business data, it can be downright scary to be without some sort of defense against data loss. Here are just some of the ways you could lose your company’s essential records:

  • Software or hardware failure
  • Human errors, like an accidentally deleted file
  • Hackers, malware, or other cyberattacks
  • Power outages or surges
  • Disconnecting USB flash drives or tapes without ejecting them first
  • Reformatting internal or external hard drives
  • Natural disasters, like fire, flood, or tornado

To recover lost data, what do you do? Many employees try low-cost or free data recovery software first to try to restore the lost files.

How Does Data Recovery Software Restore Files?

After a data loss occurs, you might try downloading a file recovery software program that promises to restore 100 percent of your files, unsaved documents, and over-written data. The program does a deep scan of your network and hard drives to locate data. By using specific algorithms, the program pieces back together with the data. Sounds great, right? Not exactly.

Depending on Recovery Software is Dangerous

While some data recovery software can perform some drive recoveries, be wary of any programs, either the paid or free version, that claims it will recover ALL your files. In reality, 100 percent restoration is not possible with these programs. The recovered data will likely be missing chunks, and it won’t restore all of the “found” files.

Not only that, but many of these data recovery programs (especially the free ones) contain malware that infects your computer and your system, putting you at risk for further damage by exposing your private company, employee, and customer records. In addition, if heavy compliance regulations govern your business, you may cause a violation with a recovery program.
