Data loss can happen on any device that is capable of storing data. Even a simple misplacement is a loss of data, and it is a loss technically. There are number of reason for this like human error, file corruption, hardware, site relates thefts, viruses and damaging malware, mechanical damages of hard drive, power failure, spilling coffee, and other water damages etc. Thus the permanent loss of data needs to be avoided as it hinders the ongoing success of business.

Though there are number of ways for recovering the data but it is expensive business so it’s better to take substitute which is backing up your data, photos and key documents on regular basis. Even there are number of backup regimens but it is of less comfort. As and when you are aware that data loss had happened, first thing which is critical is stop using drive immediately which is affected.

Things to be considered while recovering data from corrupted or deleted devices as below:

  • Try not to use the partition or device you want to recover files.
  • Try not to save the recovered files onto same hard drive from which you are recovering.
  • Do not download, extract or install data recovery software onto the external device or hard drive that one wants to recover from.

There are number of tools available, but I personally recommend these 3 free recovery softwares below. Try some to ease the recovery of lost data.

1. EaseUS

EaseUS

    EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard recovers files which are deleted and even those emptied from Recycling Bin, or those deleted them directly. It will help to recover data from USB drives, hard drive, storage devices, and memory cards. It is compatible with all file system of Windows such as FAT and EXT, dynamic disks, and it can also skip bad sectors for quicker scanning automatically. The latest version is compatible with Windows 8 and improved user interface.

    It is a wizard utility, which has 3 simple choices like Partition Recovery, Complete Recovery, and Deleted File Recovery. The tool’s screen lets you to search lost file automatically or by typing the filename, and lets you opt out of bad sectors. It quickly finds files in automatic mode and display results in a tabbed and separate File Preview window. One can select the files which they want to recover and press next; you can choose directory from screen which displays available drive capacity.

    EaseUS offers quick and deep scanning options which help you quickly restore lost files or lets you dig deeper to find files which weren’t recoverable using any other software or methods. Quick option is relatively quick and effective ways to get lost or deleted files without waiting for longer duration. Whereas, deep scanning is especially helpful when deleted files were severely corrupt and couldn’t be found using quick scanning option.

    2. DMDE

        Recuva is free utility developed by CCleaner for Windows which helps to restore files from computer that have been deleted accidentally. This includes exFAT, NTFS, and FAT file systems, and even files emptied from Recycle bin as well as video, music, images and some other files which had been deleted by user accidentally from MP3 & MP4 players, digital phone, and camera’s memory cards. It is a simple wizard which opens to a file recovery mode by default.

        The user can choose the type of file they are trying to recover; be it a document, picture, emails, compressed files are among the list. One can target search to search all drives or specific location, or one can opt either to choose deep or quick scan. The deep scan takes more time, but provides much better results. You just need to click Start button and wait for the scan to complete.

        The option of Scan for non-deleted files mode of Recuva’s search returns recovering files from formatted or damaged partitions. Once completed, results are displayed, with recovered files along with rating, depending on files condition. One can recover files directly from here or move to Advanced Mode for better view, which offers file information, preview and peek at file’s header. The latest version of this includes enhanced drive, improved partition scanning and partition detection, bug fixes, and other improvements. This is a portable tool and file size is 3MB only, which gives it an edge over other softwares.

        Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

        Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

        Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

        Does technology have all the answers?

        This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

        Creating technological solutions transparently

        This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

        Technology as the connecting tool

        Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

        “Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
