In today’s world of technology, use of computers, smartphones, USB, memory cards etc is increasingly getting common. Interestingly they all have hard drives for data storage. Data storage like office work, college assignments, pictures, songs, movies and a lot more is a must for all of us. But what if, all your data gets deleted from computers or smartphones due to hard drives getting corrupted?
Hard drive corruption, how does it happen?
Hard drive corruption can occur due to a malware attack, crashed operating system, or accidental formatting of a hard drive or other storage media. It can also occur by connecting someone else’s USB to your PC for files transfer without a virus check/scan.
Human error can be another reason like water spills and accidental drop of devices. Another common reason can be not paying attention to backing up your data and losing it in the process of hard disk failure.
