Overview: In this article, you will find ways to avoid data loss and data recovery using the EaseUS data recovery Wizard.
Losing your important data by accidental deletion is really painful, or you may have deleted some files and later realized you needed it.
You can lose data on your hard disk and other external storage devices like a flash drive, external hard disk, SD card, or Camera Memory Cards. Imagine losing an important PPT file you have created for the presentation or it may be any other important file.
We may lose data accidentally or someone may delete it intentionally. In every case of data deletion, your hard work may go into vain. Now you would have to look for possible ways to recover lost data.
What if I tell you that can avoid losing your important data, but before losing the data you can follow these protective measures.
How to Avoid Losing Your Important Data
If you no longer need some of your files like music, movies, videos, or your ugly photos then you intentionally delete them but you don’t want to delete some important data like your best memories, important office files, pdf documents with signature, company excel sheets or anything you consider important.
Here are some tips to avoid data deletion-
- Always backup your important files to external storage.
- Make multiple copies to the different hard disk partition.
- Install good antivirus to protect your data from ransomware which may encrypt your files.
- Keep your confidential data to secure cloud storage.
- Going for a presentation then email that PPT files to yourself. (In case if you lose your device on the way)
- Password protect your device or encrypt the disk partition containing important data.
These are the protective measure which you should follow but data can be deleted by any means then you want to recover it.
What to do after losing the data?
Before proceeding to recover the lost data make sure you do not copy additional data to that device.
If you put new data then you are decreasing the chance of getting your data back, when a file gets deleted the first thing you lose is the index of that file on the hard drive, your data is still there without any index.
Copying additional data will create a new index and may replace the old data if there is limited space.
Now you can proceed to recover lost data using several tools or software available. There are many data recovery tools are available in the market but in this article, I will discuss EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard.
