Few have experienced an event as stressful as losing access to important data stored on a hard drive, USB flash drive, memory card, or RAID configuration. One of the most helpful pieces of advice you can receive regarding the loss of your data is this: don’t try to remedy the problem yourself!

You might be tempted to try using all sorts of software, taking the drive apart yourself, or even sticking it in the freezer! These DIY data recovery methods rarely work and, more often than not, they’ll make your data even more difficult to recover.
