Linux system gives us a special challenge when it comes to data recovery. Its structure starts from the root directory and develops into sub-directories. Linux puts partitions in the root directory by placing them in specific directories. Unless a partition or device is mounted Linux will not know that it actually exists. Whereas the Linux system provides flexible management of logical and physical, it requires a high level of skill when it comes to data recovery. In-depth knowledge and understanding of the file systems is essential in order to successfully gain access to lost data and guarantee a successful recovery.
Never attempt a repair yourself if you suspect an imminent drive failure on your Linux operating system. The opening of any hard drive or RAID system by anyone other than an expert will almost certainly damage your data further and severely reduce your chances of successful data recovery. Similarly, avoid buying Linux system data recovery applications off the shelf. If you only have one chance to rescue your data make sure it’s the right choice – it has to be done by experts in the right place.
Linux file systems and disk configurations also have their own individual particulars. If you don’t know how your file system is built up, we can normally get a good idea of the problem from your operating system once we have looked at your drive. If you experience a hard drive crash on your Linux system, or your hard drive is making any irregular noises or clicking sounds, you should switch off the drive and remove it straight away. You can then contact us for advice.
