Analyzing a computer before Data Recovery
When you are planning to recover the data on a large scale or from a complicated case of disaster, you need to analyze the problem and to finalize many important objectives to increase the accuracy of recovery and get the ease of task. This takes your attention towards the problem from many important angles.
In case of complicated disaster of the disk in which recovery of all the files including system files and OS is not possible, if you ask a user whose data has been lost, to tell you which of the file of his disk he want to recover , you just get the reply all of them. It is Ideal too to do so but you can not waste time and efforts on such system files and other files which are the part of OS or any other software that can be installed again later and have no importance for the user.
In this way you need to think according to following steps to prepare for data recovery:
- Acceptable recovery period
- Understanding various costs
- User description
- Defining the requirements
- Making objectives
Acceptable Recovery Period
The acceptable period for recovery may be different for different type of systems and users. For example, when we have to recover the data of an engineering workstation it has many software development tools and several source codes in their disk.
In such cases, we can not take more than 4 business hours to recover such data as delay in recovery of tools and source codes may cause delay in the project works and loss of source codes may cause significant rework and project delays.
In case of marketing department workstation which has marketing tools and related data stored in it, we can not take more than one business day to recover data. However in case of personal computer users we can take some more time to complete the data recovery operations.
