One of the hardest concepts for anyone to accept is the fact that all drives fail. Every storage medium, including your phone, USB stick, HDD, SSD, or CD/DVD, will eventually fail. This is not a probability; it is a certainty. All data storage components have an expiration date, but unlike the milk in your refrigerator, you don't know when that date is.
The data storage industry has done their best to try to give us a guideline for when this failure will occur. Unfortunately, the best methods are still just fuzzy math. MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) and AFR (Annual Failure Rate) measurements give us a generalized impression there is a looming failure, but even these can be misleading. An MTBF of 1.2 million hours does not guarantee the drive will function for 136 years of continuous operation. MTBF isn't an actual counter that can be relied upon to predict drive life. Some consider AFR, which is a probable percent of failures per year, as a more reliable statistic. In truth, even the manufacturers cannot agree which is the best measurement.
Regardless of the measurements, nothing can predict when a storage device will die, or when we will personally do something to speed the demise of our precious data. Dropping a cell phone in a bucket of paint doesn't mean the data is gone, just that our precious transport method is compromised.
The team at DriveSavers Data recovery can recover data from all types of data storage devices, from HDDs and CD/DVDs to NAND-based storage devices, such as phones, tablets, USB drives, and SSDs. The wide range of data recovery services also extends into RAID and other parity-based storage systems. SMB, SOHO, and datacenters also rely upon DriveSavers to recover lost data from SAN and NAS systems.
If you ask a data storage professional what is the safest device to store data on, their first response will likely be "several." The key to securing your data is multiple copies, on multiple devices, and preferably at multiple locations. Unfortunately, the majority of people do not take the time to follow a strict backup regimen in their daily lives, and this often comes back to haunt them. Even more surprising, many times the companies and corporations we trust with our data also fail to keep timely backups.
Consumers and companies alike have been turning to DriveSavers Data Recovery to save their data since 1985, and they truly have a unique story and a refreshing outlook on the human aspect of a very technical job. Let's start with what happens the moment someone loses data on a device, and follow the life of the device through the DriveSavers process.
