TechRx Green Bay Data Recovery

by Jason Davies on January 17, 2010

TechRx Green Bay, WI launched full service data recovery services. There are numerous factors that can cause data loss. Have you heard that putting your hard drive in a freezer will help you save your data? WRONG!! Ever hear the story about the Titanic? It hit an Iceberg and that tore a huge hole in the side of the ship.

Hard drives are not sealed. In fact, the “read / write heads” float on the air inside the drive. The air gets into the drive through the air-inlet. It is a small hole in the drive. Often, the label may say “do not cover up.” If air can get inside a drive, so can moisture. Now, when you mix cold air and moisture what do you get – glad your teacher mentioned this in science class. You get ice. Hard drives run between 4200 and 15,000 revolutions per minute. Depending on the type of drive, but the big factor is that speed kills.

Ice can form on the part of the hard drive where your precious data is stored. When the drive spins up and the “heads” hit those tiny chunks of ice it can cause serious damage. In the end, freezing a drive is not only a bad idea; but it can damage your data beyond saving. When trying to recover data that has value, be sure to enlist an expert – not someone who says they know how to get data back. Data recovery is not a job for the neighborhood kid.

If you lost important data, TechRx Inc can help you find it again. Please give us a call to discuss your situation. We will continue to outline ideas on data recovery. However, our belief is that each case is unique. What works for one person, may not for another. We want you to feel like an individual and not just a client.
