Are your digital photos sitting on a single hard drive with no backup? Your
financial records? Even at home, there is critical data you wouldn't want to
lose when a hard drive fails or a virus (or wayward child) deletes your files.
MindPride can help you figure out a convenient and effective way to protect
your data by making redundant copies of it either on other computers or on
offline media such as CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, or tape.
In many cases automated processes can be created that require very little
attention or maintenance.

Data Backup Solutions
In today's world, it takes more than an occasional file copy to floppy disk
to handle your backup needs. Floppy disks just don't cut it for backing up
your data. MindPride can assess your backup needs based on the types of
files you create, and put together a solution that fits.

Multi-PC Data Backup
You can introduce a lot of additional data protection simply by copying data
between multiple computers on the same network. This process can be
automated, so that computers "synchronize" with each other periodically.
MindPride can set this up for you as part of a comprehensive scheme for protecting
your systems against loss of valuable/irreplaceable data such as financial
records, family digital photos, etc.
Sometimes you need to move data from one computer to another. In the case
of moving all your email data, web favorites, application data, etc. it may not
be clear (or easy) to recreate the same data on the destination computer.
MindPride can do this for you.
If the unthinkable occurs, there may be a way out. In the case of hard
drive failure, for example, it is often possible to recover lost data using
highly technical tools. MindPride can quickly help you determine what your
options are, and in many cases recover at least some of your data. Of course, if

What To Do When
When you experience a
data loss situation it is extremely important that you not act
hastily to try to resolve the problem. Doing so can make matters
worse and could result in the complete and permanent loss of your
data. If you don't understand what is happening with your system,
don't do anything but seek the advice of a
hard drive recovery
If your drive is making
any unusual noises such as clicking, grinding or metal
scraping, turn it off immediately! This condition typically
indicates a head crash and major media damage. Hard disks spin at
a high rate of speed, anywhere from 3200 to 10,000 revolutions per
minute. Extensive damage can occur in a short period of time if a
drive is left running, making the data irretrievable. In this
situation it is best to turn off the system and
for hard drive repair.
If you've accidentally
deleted files, emptied the Recycle Bin or Trash Can, don't install
any software or save additional files to your drive. Doing so may
permanently overwrite the deleted items. If you are in the middle
of a project when you discover files are missing, or you believe
they have been deleted, save the current project to a floppy disk,
or another storage device. Don't write, install software, or save
anything to the drive where the missing files were located.
If you tempted to use
commercial utility software such as Norton Utilities, and would
like to attempt recovery on your own, you might render your data
completely unrecoverable. We use high level recovery software
costing thousands of dollars to recover data. In fact, some of the
software we use is not for sale at any price! Amateurs Beware!!
