A Look at Different Types of Data Recovery

Instant Data Recovery

This is usually the default type of data recovery for computers. It is often the quickest method, but results can be very poor. With instant data recovery, your computer simply ejects the drive from the computer and you need to go through the data recovery process. With other types of data recovery, like tape data recovery or disk image recovery, you have more time to examine the drive and make sure nothing is wrong with it. This is why you should use data recovery software that is specific to your type of data recovery.


This is a type of instant data recovery that is often used by file recovery specialists. During file recovery, the software will examine the files on the drive and attempt to identify which files have been deleted. If a file is deleted, then the software will attempt to “recover” the data from the deleted file. Because the software will look at every file in the drive this type of recovery can be very time-consuming. If you are doing a lot of file recovery, this can also be the most expensive type of data recovery.

Tape-data recovery

This is similar to file recovery, but the software will attempt to “recover” data from any tape library or “record” that is connected to the computer. This type of data recovery is often used when a lot of data has been deleted, but you still have the original tapes or reels to recover.

Recovering Data from an SD Card

This is a type of external device and is similar to an external television. However, unlike an external television, you will not be using an external device to store data instead the card will be used as the “hard drive.” This is a great option for people who are looking to save a lot of money and are looking to use an inexpensive external device for Top Data Protector. You will need to use an inexpensive data recovery program when using an SD card in this manner. One such data recovery program that is very affordable and can be used with an SD card is iTop data recovery software.

Final Words

The best way to get your data back is to report it stolen to the authorities as soon as possible. If you think someone has stolen your data, call the authorities and report it. Doing so will prevent any further damage from happening. If someone steals your data anyway, report it to the authorities again, and ask for help.
