That’s really bad to hear Carlos! I am really sorry about your issue. :( Which OS you used?

I use Windows 7

in a few hours i will try with another software to recover the info in a perfect state because with getDataBack I got my info with errors I’ll consider your advice, I will start with an external disk drive and link it with google or dropbox the problem right now is that I have not many resources for this month the repair of my PC cost me about $500 money that was not budgeted

I’m registered to backblaze.com, that’s basically it, it’s all I need and I think it’s worth the money. Even after a recent hard disk failure I just downloaded the data back to my new hard drive.

We used to do this on a regular basis, chances are 50-50 but it is worth trying :)

1 Any backup solution is only efficient as long as you also have a packed back-up schedule in place.

2 Flash drives (the more the merrier, they come in all shapes and sizes) and SSD drives provide much more safety than any classic hdd, and most likely consume less power than a RAID array. Also, they can be used as mobile presentation devices for anything from images up to full videos, and they can be encrypted just like any hdd.

3 a UPS is great and all, but I think that by having a good surge-surpressor between your PSU and wall-outlet, you at least ensure no “frying” takes place, and any data-loss (provided you do a backup every 12-24h) is limited to the previous backup cycle.

Last but not least : learning the hard way is painful, but sometimes also refreshing. Not saying you should be jolly about it, but I felt less depressed the last time it happened to me, upon noticing the spike in performance and snappiness of my lil’ old laptop. You know, that saying about the half-full glass :D

Good luck :)

Sad to hear that. You may start using external HDDs for back-ups only, and cloud-based hosting services. Losing data is really a dangerous risk for us all nowaday :(

I’ve lost my HDD last month too (the Mayan apocalypse was real for me). If your HDD is damaged, don’t try to run those file recovery tools, because you might damaging more you device. Use ddrescue to create a image and try to recover your files from the image. If i had done a image from my drive right from the beginning, I certainly would have recovered all my files.

I know you’re a windows user, but read this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DataRecovery . The info on this page really helped me.

Regards

Yay! That is awesome news Carlos. I hate the idea of losing all my data. I’ve actually decided to make printed copies of all my photos. (Hopefully one day I’ll bore my grand kids silly with stories of my youth!)
