Stellar Data Recovery / Basics of Data Recovery and Common Scenarios
By definition, data recovery is a process of retrieving inaccessible, lost, or formatted data from a storage media, when the data stored in it cannot be accessed in a usual way. The storage media can be an internal or external hard disk drive (HDD), solid-state drive (SSD), USB flash drive, CD, DVD, RAID subsystem, and any other electronic device. In most cases, where the disk or device is not physically damaged, data can be restored using Stellar Data Recovery. The most common scenarios, where data recovery is possible using Stellar Data Recovery, are listed below:
The most common data recovery scenario involves an operating system failure, malfunction of a storage device, logical failure of storage devices, accidental damage or deletion, etc. (typically, on a single-drive, single-partition, single-OS system). In such case, you can copy all important files from the damaged media to another new drive using Stellar Data Recovery.
Another scenario involves a drive-level failure, such as a compromised file system or drive partition, or a hard disk drive failure. In any of these cases, the data is not easily read from the media devices. Depending on the situation, Stellar Data Recovery can retrieve the drive partition and recover complete data.
In a third scenario, files have been accidentally "deleted" from a storage media. Typically, the contents of deleted files are not removed immediately from the physical drive; instead, references to them in the directory structure are removed. Although deleted files are not discoverable through a standard file manager, the deleted data still technically exists on the physical drive and may be recoverable by Stellar Data Recovery if not overwritten by other data files.
Some other common scenarios of a data loss, where Stellar Data Recovery can help to recover your data, are given as follows:
When you discover that you have lost some valuable data, the first action you take to correct the problem mustn't aggravate the situation instead.
Tip: Avoid reusing disks that are involved in the data loss, unless the cause of the problem is positively identified. Otherwise, they might fail once again.
