Tips on Avoiding Data Loss:
#1 – Don't put all eggs in one basket. Store data in different locations. If your OS (operating system) goes wrong and you can not start up the computer, most likely you have to re-install the OS. All the data stored on system partition (in Windows, it's C: ) gets lost. This is why you should create at least two partitions if you only have one hard disk.#2 – Stay clear of virus and malware. Malicious software has become one of the biggest threats to data safety. It's more commonly known as malware. These destructive programs, including viruses, Trojans and worms are all on the prowl and can be secretly installed on your system. Avoid unsafe websites and keep your anti-virus software always updated.
#3 – Back up your important data. Frequent backups are not recommended, though, you do need to back up the ones most valuable to you.

Hard Disk Recovery - Different Systems, Different TechniquesHard drives with different architectures can be similar, but each type also has its own "favorite" failures and different techniques to handle:
Retrieving Data from Physically Damaged Hard Disk Drives
If a hard disk is inaccessible, we first test the components and closely examine drive platters to determine the extent of physical damage. These steps enable us to layout a course of action for each individual drive.
ACE Data Recovery engineers perform free evaluation and all hard drive recovery procedures in our Class 100 Clean Rooms. They are designed to maintain exceptional air purity, containing less than 100 airborne particles larger than 0.5 microns in each cubic foot of air. Such an environment is vital for protecting the sensitive internal components of hard drives.
We follow only non-destructive hard drive data recovery processes that include drive sectors cloning. This means that we’ll pull data from your drive on a sector by sector basis and work directly on the clone. This procedure ensures that the drive is not damaged any further and that a second image of the original structure can be acquired if needed.
