DRIVESAVERS IS THE INDUSTRY LEADER AND OFFERS THE HIGHEST PROBABILTY OF A SUCCESSFUL RECOVERY. HOWEVER, DATA RECOVERY IS NOT ALWAYS POSSIBLE. HAVING A GOOD DATA "PROTECTION" STRATEGY IS CRITICAL. WE RECOMMEND THAT THE CUSTOMER FOLLOW THESE SAFETY TIPS TO AVOID DATA LOSS.
Back up, back up, back up! Always keep a current copy of your data on another type of storage media. Test and verify your backups regularly. Keep at least one verified copy offsite and secure.
Invest in a comprehensive backup strategy. Consult your service provider about the right backup solution for you.
Back up and verify data before performing any system upgrades.
Invest in an UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) for all your computer equipment to protect against power spikes, blackouts and other power issues.
Turn off external storage devices only after shutting down the computer to avoid possible directory corruption from occurring.
Purchase an anti-virus solution.
Do not move the drive while it is operating.
Provide adequate space around your computer equipment to allow for circulation and cooling.
If the drive was previously in a very cold environment, allow it to warm up to room temperature before operating.
If you hear unusual noises, turn off the unit immediately. These sounds may indicate a mechanical problem that could result in permanent data loss.
DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES, REPRENETATIONS AND GUARANTEES:
