While working on your computer, if you choose the correct steps, it will help you to prevent major data loss and in the worst-case scenario, will help you to increase the chance of successful recovery.

  • Partition your drive into a program and data zone. Should something happen to the program partition and unless it is a total disk failure, you still stand a good chance to retrieve the data intact from the data partition. Read more details on disk partitioning.
  • If you have a choice, adopt NTFS file system volume instead of FAT32 file system. Not only it gives you more flexibility in length of filenames and directory, security control, in case of disk corruption, you stand a greater chance of good recovery.
  • Keep your file names and directory simple and direct which is ideal for direct backup to other media such as CDR/DVD.
  • If you can help it, do not use file or disk encryption. In case of disk crash, recovery would be more difficult. If you really have to do this for reason of data confidentiality, you may want to protect only those selected files rather than everything.
  • If you are not using the computer for long period of time, turn it off. Do not put on power save mode and leave it through the night as it stands a greater chance of power surge or unknown damages.
