Data information loss

4 Commonly Overlooked Signs of Data Loss

While the best way to avoid data loss is to back up data regularly, computer users should also know the basic signs of data loss. By turning off a hard drive or other device as early as possible, you can greatly increase your chances of a successful data recovery while limiting your case's turnaround time. Unfortunately, many of the signs of data loss are extremely subtle, and computer users often ignore potentially serious symptoms.

Cloud Storage

How Safe is The Cloud

The cloud. Really? Who named it that? A cloud; a soft, fluffy white thing that goes away on a sunny day; made out of water vapor. Yeah. Data loves water. Maybe they named it the cloud because it is far away, floating above the earth, inaccessible. Hmm. On the other hand, perhaps they called it the cloud because it is a cloud of mystery. Nobody knows where your data is. No matter what the cloud is, they could have put a little more thought into what they (whoever "they" is) called it.

Organize Your Files to Prevent Hard Drive Wear and Tear

Organize Your Files to Prevent Hard Drive Wear and Tear

Where is that word document? Where did that program go anyway? You’ll spend hours looking for lost files if you let your computer become encumbered by scattered information. Not only this, but your computer will take longer to access those files you’re trying to find. Wouldn’t it be nice if you knew exactly where that file was?

Care and Feeding of Hard Drives

The Care and Feeding of Hard Drives

Without hard drives, computers would just be expensive calculators. Even though faster processors, retina displays, portability, and battery life have become the buzzwords for what’s new in computers, nothing matters without the ability to store and retrieve data.

Drive Failure

Your Hard Drive is Failing—Now What?

Don’t panic, don’t lose your cool, and above all, don’t resort to violence—especially against your computer. Data recovery is more difficult if you take a bat to your laptop. The paradox of a failing hard drive is that the most frustrating event in human history requires the greatest calm. So, stay calm and follow these four simple steps to turn a catastrophic event into an inconvenient one.

I Need it Right Now!

But I Need My Data Now!

That actually works sometimes with your Mercedes if you have a good dealer. They will give you a loaner while your car is in the shop. Sorry, it doesn’t work that way with data. We don’t have spare data in the backroom that you can use in place of yours; and you can’t go rent some data until you get yours back either. Your data is more exclusive than the hottest Ferrari. Only your data will do. So, how do you get it back?

Data Encryption

Best Ways to Encrypt Data

The best way to encrypt most data is to not encrypt it; meaning, of course, not all data need be encrypted—or should it? Some individuals and companies feel they need to encrypt everything. Sometimes this is warranted; sometimes it’s just overkill. However, it is still a very subjective question. What some would consider paranoia may often be inadequate protection against corporate thieves and hackers.
