In the new normal, where organizations have almost switched the office to work from home, people become familiar with the new norms on securing data at home while working on the office system. 

What if you lose data due to some mistakes that caused data loss in the office computer? Much panicking, isn't it? 

But before some catastrophe occurs and risks the business's credentials, you can trigger these seven mistakes after a hard disk crash that can cause data loss and inform a data recovery specialist before you lose your essential data forever.

1. DIY data recovery

When you see yourself trapped in a data loss pitfall, you start doing things in a rush that can worsen the scenario. In some cases, people without expertise start repairing a crashed hard disk with data recovery software that can put the data at high risk of permanent data loss. 

When you don't know how to fix the crashed hard disk, shut down the system, plug all the media cards and cables out and connect to a data recovery specialist to provide you with the apt solution in the pandemic. 

2. Opening hard disk drive

If you dare to open the hard disk and want to see what's wrong from the inside, believe it or not, you are risking the data and your job as well. People unknowingly open hard disk drives in their room. It may lose the data already in the room. 

Data recovery specialists open hard disks in a contaminant-free room required to open a sensitive hard drive that can get damaged even from tiny dust particles. 

3. Re-create partition

It's okay if you have deleted a partition of the hard disk on your computer or laptop. Nothing much changes, just the data stored in the partition renders inaccessible, which is reversed with a special data recovery process. 

The only mistake you can make is overwrite the data by creating a new partition assuming that the lost data will be accessible again.

4. Formatting drive

One of the major data loss reasons can be formatting a drive caused by you. When a hard drive crashes, messages pop up on the screen suggesting to format the drive. DO NOT FORMAT the drive; it will only overwrite your old data and trigger permanent data loss, which may be irreversible by data recovery services. 

5. Storing the recovered files improperly

You shouldn't risk your recovered files while saving them in the same hard disk drive. There still might be some unresolved issues with the drive. Moreover, your data can be at potential risk again as the system may read the data loss area as free or reuse. Beware of such actions and save the recovered files in another hard drive or media device in good condition. 

6. Not backing up your data

It would not be a good idea to store the sensitive business data in the same laptop hard drive or computer every day. Whether it's your office laptop, off-site or on-site ready backups can save your organization and praise you for the smart action. 


When some sudden data loss knocks on your door, do not panic. It can worsen the current scenario.
