How To Go About Data Recovery If You Have A Hard Drive Crash

By: Teahupoo
DWG (Design Web Format) files require a separate recovery procedure. Linked to AutoCAD, Design Web Format files are rich in graphics. Therefore, a specialist in disk recovery may not have a clue into saving your DWG files.

If a file is lost during a hard drive crash, it takes a specialist to retrieve the damage. An Intel CAD system cannot fix the damaged files on hard disks or storage mediums. The repairs have to follow a unique course of action.

If your hard drive does crash, stop using that computer immediately. Hopefully, you have a back up. If not, do not attempt to run any data recovery program that came with the computer. Usually, this type of program writes over the original data. Using one of these programs can erase your important files.

The first step is to allow a hard disk recovery company to restore your pertinent files. Contact a reputable company immediately. They will probably ask you to bring your computer to their location. Although, there are a few companies who come right to your home. At-home computer services will charge more. With any luck, the few of your DWG files will be repaired, however many more will still need attention. Missing files or data out of sequence will keep these files from working properly.

To find out which files were saved by the hard disk recovery firm, you can run an Intel CAD program called AuditDWG. This will tell you which files were repaired.

Once the company has done what it can, you will probably need to talk to a specialist in DWG file recovery. Often, the first company you deal with will put you in touch with a specialist. This person will then come in and try alternate methods to retrieve and recover your missing information. In some cases, the hard drive will need to be mailed out for repairs. It is a better option than losing your files permanently.

Even after taking these steps, there may be issues that could not allow the retrieval of your files. If there is damage to the hard drive, you may suddenly have bad sectors that prevent the recovery of information. There really is little you can do if this occurs. Try running Acad, but this will not always work.

When the damage is extensive, you may have to personally rebuild certain files from scratch. Though time consuming, it really is the only way. Not words you want to hear, but at least some files were recovered.

DWG files can be a pain to recover during a hard drive failure. Remember that you are not the first to experience this problem, and you will not be the last. There are experts who are ready to help!
