Data recovery causes special reports
Below we will try to explain the most common malfunctions, including the characteristics, alerts and damage associated with each one.
The reason why we are unable to access our data may be due to one of two generic causes: physical damage to the storage device (also called hardware failure) or, when the device works perfectly but there is a change in the structure of the data which prevents access this is called a software failure. Often, both types of failure occur in one device, but for the purposes of clarity we will treat them as separate problems here.
Recovery Labs recommends switching off the system and disconnecting it when there is an indication of a hardware malfunction. We do not recommend the use of data recovery software by users who are unfamiliar with what is causing their equipment to malfunction, since many hard drives that appear to have a software problem may actually be concealing a hardware problem which, if not treated properly, can degenerate into a larger problem, making it impossible to recover the data.
