Data recovery tips

The following tips are designed to help with data recovery.

Treat Recovery Area With Care

Once the drive with recoverable data is identified, do not save, write or install anything onto that drive. Even installing the data recovery software to the same drive could overwrite critical file location data and render your sensitive data irrecoverable.

Save Recovered Files Onto a Different Drive

Do not save the recovered files back onto the same drive from which they were recovered. This can interfere with the recovery process by overwriting table records for other deleted files or folders

Please save your recovered data onto another logical, removable, floppy or network drive.
