Common Causes of File Damage and Data Loss
Your computer might lose access to email archives or other files for a number of reasons. For instance, files can become corrupt due to software errors or hardware issues.
The most common cause of file corruption is an operating issue during file access; the computer cannot make the requested changes to a file and instead makes an incomplete
entry that prevents the file from functioning correctly.
File corruption is particularly common with larger files, which is why email and database applications frequently have built-in features to protect against data loss.
However, even with this protection, larger files are still prone to damage and corruption.
Common file damage scenarios include:
- Operating System Failure Resulting in File Corruption
- Damage Due to Bad Sectors
- Damage Due to Physical Hard Disk Drive Malfunction
- Accidental File Deletion, Formatting or Partitioning
- Damage from a Virus, Trojan Horse or Other Malicious Program
If your system has physical damage, you may hear a clicking or whirring sound. Your computer may have trouble booting, and you may notice damage in specific directories or
partitions. However, mechanical damage does not always cause immediately identifiable symptoms. To definitively diagnose damaged files, you should contact Secure Data
Recovery Services to set up a media evaluation.
What to Do When You Cannot Access Files
Because media damage can cause file damage without causing any other noticeable symptoms, we recommend turning off your hard drive, RAID array or other affected device as soon
as you notice that you cannot access an important file.
Do not use any data recovery software to treat damaged files. Many recovery programs work by accessing basic filesystem entries and "undeleting" data, but they cannot
effectively treat complex issues like file corruption. Some programs may cause additional damage, particularly if your computer is suffering from a hard drive failure or
other mechanical media issue.
Keep your system powered off and contact a professional data recovery provider to discuss your options. At Secure Data Recovery Services, we have decades of experience with
all common file types and data loss scenarios. We offer file recovery services for Mac OS X, all versions of Windows, Linux, UNIX, Solaris, FreeBSD and various other
Secure Data Recovery Services operates a Certified Class 10 ISO 4 Cleanroom
allows our engineers to safely work with mechanically damaged media. Cleanrooms prevent airborne contaminants from affecting the exposed actuator heads, platters and
electronics of a hard drive during physical repairs. Visit our Cleanroom page for more information.
Our engineers can help you create an appropriate disaster recovery plan to minimize your downtime when data loss occurs. If you cannot access key files on your computer, call

Finding a Certified Data Recovery Provider
All data recovery companies should follow established security procedures when handling damaged files. Strict data security is particularly important if you need to recover
an email archive or database, but unfortunately, many data recovery providers use outdated standards.
Look for a data recovery provider with certifications from independent security auditing firms. Third party credentials are important in the data recovery industry, and at
Secure Data Recovery Services, we regularly research and implement new technologies to maintain our excellent set of security certifications.
Our certifications include:
- HIPAA, FERPA and PCI Security Certification
- SAS 70 Certification
- SSAE 16 Type II Certification
- Green Business Certification
We are also a member of the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA), an organization dedicated to improving IT security practices, and we were the first data recovery
company to earn a SSAE 16 Type II Certification
. Visit our certifications
