Three Tips to Avoid Data Loss in Kenya

Three Tips to Avoid Data Loss

Learn how to prevent data loss  if you have  a Laptop , server, Hard Disk, Flash Drive, Raid (RAID level 0, 1, 5, 6 and 10) , Tape, Desktop or operating a database 

Computers have become a natural way of life for many of us. With this convenience comes the possibility that your machine might crash, causing you to lose every piece of critical information you ever saved on it. The top three reasons computers crash are hard drive failures, registry damage and malware infections. With the prevalence of the internet, all three of these factors make you vulnerable to the loss of data. In order to save yourself the time, money and effort it takes to recover from a disaster, you must how these situations may occur and what can be done to prevent them.

#1- Store Data in Different Locations

Most data is loss when the operating system or the hard disk on it fails. This is why you should create at least two partitions if you only have one hard disk on your system. It would be a good idea to store Windows in the first partition and all of your data in the second partition. This reduces the chances of losing your data if the Windows system happens to fail. Another option is to implement an additional hard disk on your system and store files on the new disk. This will protect your data if Windows or the original hard disk fails.

There are also other methods of prevention that can be performed to keep your data secure. Make sure to regularly use the Disk Cleanup utility in Windows to sweep up unwanted files and fragments from your system. You can also run the Disk Defragmenter tool every now and then to consolidate your files and increase the data access time on your hard disk.

# 2 – Stay Clear of Malware

One of the biggest threats to your data is malicious software, more commonly known as malware. Viruses, Trojans and worms are all on the prowl and can be secretly installed on your system in a number of ways. These destructive programs create a large number of unwanted and harmful entries in your registry, often causing system crashes and compromising multiple machines. This is why you need to protect your computer with reliable security software. A quality anti-malware program is a must these days, along with firewall components. Additionally, you can use a registry cleaning tool to sweep out all of the file remnants left behind from uncomplete installations and malicious entries.

There are number of quality products readily available on the internet to keep your data safe. Security vendors such as McAfee and Symantec offer some of the best programs to protect you against the common threat of malware. There are also many cleaning utilities specifically designed for your Windows registry.

# 3 – Backup Your Data

The most effective way to avoid the loss of data is to create frequent backups of your files. If this information is of any importance, your backup system must be reliable and used on a regular schedule. The many available storage options allow you to store data on mediums like CDs, DVDs, pen drives, external disk drives, tapes and online storage providers. If this data is really sensitive, it is important to store at least two copies of it and keep at least one copy in secured offsite location.

How to spot a hard drive crash before it happens

Sighs that your hard disk will crash.

A hard drive crash can mean losing all your data and applications, but there are ways to spot problems early and minimize the risk of hard disk failure.

hardrivecrushing

Software crashes all the time. While it can be annoying to lose unsaved work, it’s seldom the end of the world and restarting the application, or Windows itself, usually puts things right.

When hardware crashes, on the other hand, it’s much more serious – particularly when that hardware is your computer’s hard drive.

 

 

hardrivecrushingEastAfricanDatahandlers

How hard drives operate.

Hard drives haven’t really changed much since they were invented 60 years ago. They’re physically much, much smaller and have much higher capacities (the first models were the size of a fridge and held just 3.75 megabytes of data), but they still store information on one or more fast-spinning magnetic ‘platters’, with a read/write head that skims over the surface like the arm on a record player.

 

 

 

hardrivecrushingEastAfricanDatahandlerspart3

 

Those platters can spin at anything up to 10,000 rpm and the read/write head dances across them barely a hair’s width away. This makes hard drives very fragile when they’re in use and even the slightest knock can send the read/write head ploughing into the platter surface – with disastrous consequences for your data.

This was a particular problem for early laptops, but 2.5-inch laptop hard drives now feature anti-shock technology that detects sudden movement and ‘parks’ the read/write heads safely out of the way for the duration. That’s not to say modern hard drives are indestructible – those platters are still spinning very quickly – and that means handling a laptop roughly is rarely a good idea.

Why do the hard drives fail?

Despite their complex mechanical nature, hard drives are still very reliable, but they don’t last forever. While it’s difficult to know how long any computer component will last, hard drive manufacturers use a measure called the Mean time between failures, or MTBF.

MTBF is a statistical estimate of how reliable a hard drive is, in terms of the number of hours it’s predicted to work between failures in normal use. This doesn’t mean a hard drive with an MTBF of 300,000 hours will be fault-free for 34 years – these figures are an average for all drives in a particular range and they’re calculated by extrapolating figures from intensive short-term tests.

In reality, tests have shown that up to 25% of a particular model of hard drive can fail within four or five years of use – although most are much more reliable than that. Failures often occur when a hard drive is new, usually as a result of manufacturing defects that only arise after a few weeks’ use, but other factors can also contribute.

Aforementioned shocks aside, extreme temperatures and prolonged constant use can also cause problems. ‘Consumer’ hard drives aren’t designed for 24/7 use, for example, so if you’re looking for one to use in a PC that runs round the clock, you’ll need to buy accordingly.

What really happens when a hard drive starts to fail?

Imminent hard drive failure is often preceded by random errors in Windows – files becoming corrupt or refusing to open, sudden operating system crashes and so on. If your PC is still working when this happens, you can scan your hard drive for errors using the Windows drive error-checking tool.

Do this by right-clicking the problem drive icon in Computer and selecting Properties. When the dialog box opens, click the Tools tab and then the Check now button under Error-checking. Tick the boxes for Automatically fix file system errors and Scan for and attempt recover of bad sectors, then click the Start button. This process will take some time and is best left running overnight.

hardrivecrushingEastAfricanDatahandlerspart4

A ‘bad sector’ is a physical defect on a drive and while Windows can often circumnavigate the odd few with no ill effects, an abundance of them is usually a sign of impending hard drive failure.

More serious hard drive failures – the mechanical kind – are usually signalled by strange noises. Some high-performance hard drives do ‘chatter’, but any drive that makes grinding, clicking or pinging noises is usually on the way out. Try searching YouTube for hard drive failure sounds for some examples of what you should be listening for.

How to spot a failing hard drive

Increasing numbers of bad sectors and worrying noises are dead giveaways for hard drive failure, but there won’t always be such warning signs. Fortunately, all hard drives also feature their own built-in diagnostic tool to catch potential problems before they become serious.

It’s called SMART – short for Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology – and you can access it with a free utility like HD Tune. Download and install the utility from www.hdtune.com/download.html (scroll down to find HD Tune, just above the Drive Power Manager section).

Run HD Tune and click the Health tab on its window. Look at the Status column – each entry should be OK (don’t worry about what these entries mean). If not, something is wrong.

 

 

hardrivecrushingEastAfricanDatahandlerspart5

What to do when a hard drive fails?

If you have an up-to-date backup, hard drive failure is a minor problem – just replace it and restore your data. If you don’t, then you’re in trouble.

The best advice in this case is to stop using the drive in question immediately, since the longer it’s left running, the more likely it is to fail catastrophically. Ideally, you should replace the hard drive and get your PC up and running again, then connect your old drive and copy any important data to the new one.

How successful this is depends on the type of failure, so you may have to turn to a data recovery company like us East African Data Handlers  if your data is important and the problem is a serious one.

Replacing a hard drive under warranty

The good news is that most hard drives that are just a few years old should still be covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. So if yours fails, you may be eligible for a free replacement.

Search for ‘your hard drive manufacturer’s name’ rma (short for ‘return merchandise authorisation’) online and you should find the appropriate web page for checking if your drive is still covered and how to return it for a replacement. Just remember that this process won’t recover any of your data, so you’ll need to do that yourself beforehand.

This also means it’s worth paying close attention to warranties when you buy a new hard drive. Manufacturers that offer warranties of three years are more are clearly confident about their hard drives, for example, whereas those that only offer one may not be.

hardrivecrushingEastAfricanDatahandlerspart6

 

What about solid state drives?

While we’ve been talking about hard drives so far, some of the above problems also apply to solid-state drives.

Since SSDs have no moving parts, they’re much more resistant to impact damage than a hard drive and they won’t ever make strange noises. They can still suffer from bad sectors and manufacturing defects, though, and they also support SMART monitoring. So by all means switch to an SSD for the speed benefits, but don’t do it just for the sake of reliability

What happens when it is about to crush and need to recover  my data?

Do not attempt to do the recovery. Just bring it to the best and professional data recovery company if in East Africa called East African Data Handlers.
