Data loss is a huge problem that can be avoided by just following a few simple steps.

Information on your computer is highly valuable, and it is important to take all possible precautions to avoid a disaster that could end up costing you money and time. We came across this guideline from werecoverdata.com and believe it can be of value to you! Save yourself the hassle and use the following tips to protect your data!

Safety tips to avoid data loss

  • Always back up your data, especially when upgrading your system. Make sure that copies of your most important data are being kept off site
  • Always turn your computer off using the operating system shut down process
  • Always use up-to-date hardware and software utilities for data security, such as virus protections and firewalls
  • Laptops should be operated on a hard and flat surface to allow proper ventilation and to avoid over heating
  • Servers should have fans, ventilation or portable air conditioning systems as close as possible to avoid operating in high temperatures.
  • Allow enough space around the external drive’s cooling fans and remove any items that may block air flow
  • Do not turn off peripheral devices while computer is on, or when disc is active
  • Drives should be stable and stationary when operating. If you have to move your computer – turn it off first
  • When touching or handling the media, make sure to avoid static electricity
  • If you hear unusual sounds coming from your computer, turn it off immediately to avoid further damage.

If Your System Fails, Could You Recover?

Disasters do happen.  The question is, when something fails, will it be a temporary inconvenience or a business-shaking crisis?  When a hard drive crashes, can you be back in business in hours? If a natural disaster shuts your network down, can you recover every business critical application that day?
