How Quick Recovery works for Removable Media?
Initial diagnosis during our free evaluation determines whether the media is accessible to our lab equipment. If so, the first priority is to create a raw image of the data onto new media so that logical analysis can determine the nature of the data loss situation.
Logical recovery uses the raw image by examining the low-level data sectors and determining what fixes to file system structures are needed to get access to the important data. Sometimes the existing file system structures are missing or damaged so much that data has to be extracted directly from one or more fragments of the raw image.
Our experts use patented, Quick Recovery software to analyze and fix problems on removable media. Many of these problems cannot be repaired by any other Data Recovery processes. Once errors have been corrected and data has been recovered, our specialists will strategically examine the data recovered to check data validity.
CD & DVD Data Recovery Capabilities
CD-RW and DVD discs are widely used today for backing up data, creating music discs, sharing files, creating slideshows, and keeping digital copies of home movies. Burned CDs can be read in almost any CD-ROM drive, and DVD burners/players are fast becoming a common sight in many homes. Unfortunately, as is the case with any portable storage, accidents can happen. Some causes of data loss include:
Common Causes of Data Loss Affecting CD-ROM, CD-R/RW and DVD Discs
- Physical damage to discs (scratches, warped discs)
- Accidentally deleted files (from rewritable discs)
- Virus attacks
- Corrupt file systems
- Incomplete burns
- Problems with the dye used in burnable/rewriteable discs
- Defective CD or DVD burners
- Defective CD or DVD media
