TIPS: Kroll Ontrack recommends that victims fearing loss of their vital information consider the following before assuming that the damage is permanent:

  • Never assume that data is unrecoverable, no matter what it has been through
  • Do not attempt to operate any devices that have been in a fire, even if it is just smoke-damaged, as this can cause unseen damage inside the hard drive
  • Do not shake, disassemble or attempt to clean any hard drive or server that has been damaged
  • If there is apparent water damage, do not attempt to dry it out (keep it wet if possible)
  • Do not try to remove the hard drive – ship the entire computer for recovery
  • Call a data recovery professional for additional tips on shipping your device
