These days, many users are switching their operating systems from Windows to Linux. Even, some are opting for a dual boot system by installing Linux alongside Windows to use a bit closely before completely migrating to Linux. The reason is pretty simple. Linux is new and with various new features. Apart from this, the operating system is undoubtedly the most frequently updated operating system than that of its other counterparts. But, one thing is quite true that no operating system is entirely free from any loose holes. Moreover, if it is not right to term it as loose hole, still, there are instances when the OS failed to match with the user expectations. Among such troubled occasions, Linux data recovery applications can be immensely useful in recovering your valuable data back.
You may encounter a number of instances of data loss in your Linux system. The reason can be a simple data deletion to harsh system crash. Some of the mostly encountered Linux data loss situations are listed as below:
1) Accidental/intentional deletion
2) Accidentally formatting the hard drive while resolving some Linux disk error
3) Re-installation of the operating system by formatting the drive or volume
4) File system corruption
5) Operating system malfunction
6) Any software/hardware contradiction resulting in the the crashing of the Linux system
Under any of the above situation, your valuable data from the Linux drive or volume either gets lost or becomes inaccessible. Still, you can restore the data back, if you have taken any backup of your data recently. If there is no recent backup available or the restoration process results any error, you need to look for some other Data recovery Linux methods.
One soothing fact about data loss is that unless the data in the drive is overwritten by some other piece of data, it never gets lost permanently. So, if you can take strict care of the troubled Linux drive or volume against any case of overwriting, all your seemingly lost data can be definitely retrieved by running any software etc.
These Linux Data Recovery utilities have powerful algorithms to dig into the hard drive and recover the data efficiently. All the features of these recovery applications are read-only in nature and you need not have to worry about the safety of your data.
