    Lady Fitzgerald, from sevenforums, posts wisdom of proactiveness

    Lady Fitzgerald; who was responding to my post that give the URLs of posts planted elsewhere by two data recovery personnel.

    Even attempting to make a forensic clone of a failed drive has no guarantee of success.

    The best first response to a failed drive is to have already created backups of your data before the failure.
    And, since any data not backed up will be lost if the drive it is on fails, the data becomes corrupted, or is accidentally deleted, backups must be updated frequently.

    Even though making and updating backups consumes more time and costs more than not doing so, it is still more reliable, less time consuming, and far less expensive than data recovery, which has no guarantees of success.

    One has to be proactive, not reactive, to ensure the safety of their data.

    Here are some snippits from contributors, DR specialists, posting in hddguru forums:
    http://collegecafe.fr.yuku.com/srepl...ractices-exper
    http://collegecafe.fr.yuku.com/srepl...ractices-exper
    http://collegecafe.fr.yuku.com/srepl...ractices-exper
    http://collegecafe.fr.yuku.com/srepl...ractices-exper
    The above hddguru forum snippits indicate that imminent hardware failure cannot be repaired by software "fixes".
    Rather then trusting repair techs, trust data recovery techs.

    This snippit from sevenforums.com by a long-time contributor drives home the point that a good restorable backup trumps any data recovery attempt. In short, if one dores not do backups, then one better trust DR techs rather than DIY or repair techs.

    Because of the wealth of information provided by data recovery folks in numerous forums on The 'Net, I have these two threads [along with a few others elsewhere] for the purpose of passing on your wisdom and experience, passing on your advice and ideas.

    http://collegecafe.fr.yuku.com/topic...ractices-exper
    college cafe's Computer Technologies;
    Thread title: First Response Restore and Recovery ideas, beliefs, practices, experiences

    https://www.dost-tech.com/viewtopic.php?f=72&t=730
    Dost-Tech's Microsoft Windows Support; subGroup: Backup, Restore, Recovery; Ext/Int FD&HD MGT
    Thread title: First Response restore and recovery ideas, beliefs, practices, experiences

    Anyone, everyone, is very much welcomed to add content, add comments, ask questions, etc. Those threads hopefully will awaken end-users who are in any sort of data loss crisis, to consider
    -- data recovery concepts and practices
    -- restoration and copy-back concepts and practices
    as a Unified Whole rather than linear parts and parcels.

    Also, rather than over and over printing a post in numerous threads across The 'Net, I'm going to print the vast majority of "rollerstoller"-generated stuff in two threads in those two forums. You all can from time to time visit the above two and see additional stuff.

    It would have been nice to know two weeks ago when you started this thread that you had also started identical threads on at least two other forums.

    Are you aware of our Rule 14? If not, please read it and its included link, "A message to cross posters".

    Where else have you started identical or similar threads?

    Looks like they are also here https://www.tenforums.com/backup-res...pen-topic.html and here https://www.sevenforums.com/backup-r...pen-topic.html

    Roland has been busy ( not that that's a bad thing but all links should have been included ).

    BruceR:
    Yeah, there are a few informative, not-asking-specific-solution, threads. There have been so many threads in so many forums about data recovery, data restoration from folks - endusers who have lost all data, who have lost some data - I was hoping to combine the hard-hitting wisdom of a few data recovery specialists, a few restoration folks, into one umbrella thread. I was so glad to have met specialists with solutions that I wanted to share. However, I now realize that it is not best to shotgun all over the world.
    Hence, I will only post answers from me to questions for me in all but two threads [college cafe & Dost-Tech]. No more shotgunning the advice and ideas from specialists.

    Where will you be summarizing that wisdom in one thread?

    BruceR asked where would this collection of wisdom and advice be continued:
    http://collegecafe.fr.yuku.com/topic...ractices-exper
    https://www.dost-tech.com/viewtopic.php?f=72&t=730

    BruceR asked how many places or forums were involved:
    There were nine forums (which includes the ones already mentioned), my two facebooks & 1 LinkedIn places.

    I want to thank all of you friends, including my friend BruceR, who added lots of good stuff to this thread!

    Here's the latest over in my itty bitty place:
