Beware! Home remedies can sometimes go wrong and make data loss even worse… or actually make no difference in trying to get the data back. Not knowing how to distinguish between what’s true and myth when it comes to data recovery could potentially risk your data even further. Test your knowledge as we dispel the most popular data recovery myths. Let’s tackle some of these myths and set a few things straight.
We have all been there when we panic to try and save our data and deciphering whether a myth will actually help get it back or make the situation worse is always difficult. It is our natural reaction to do all that we can do to help save our data but sometimes this can cause more harm than good.
Any DIY data recovery attempt will come with its own set of risks. It is down to you, as the owner of the device, to weigh up the pros and cons of attempting the recovery but I would always recommend that if you are unsure, it is best to seek advice from a professional so as not to risk making the loss worse, and in some cases even permanent.
