Reviews and Testimonials

Consider a scenario, you are preparing documentation of an important college project using MS Word. You almost finished it but suddenly your system shuts down. When you rebooted it, the file you were working on is gone. What will you do then? First of all don’t panic! The files that are deleted or lost from your system or any other external storage device is not completely removed until it is overwritten by some other file. The operating system of your computer just flags that empty space as available & does not allow you to see the file in its directory structure. So, it is highly recommended that as soon as you come across any data loss scenario, immediately stop using the system. If you continue using it, the chances of recovery will reduce.

Word DOC deletion / lost scenarios –

Deletion of Word file – The Word document might get deleted either intentionally or accidentally. Suppose you decide to delete some files that you think are not important to you, but later you came to know that it was an important one. You then desperately look for a solution so that you can restore deleted Word file. The same consequence happens when you accidentally delete a file. This is the most commonly made mistake which is a result of a slight distraction. You might press Shift+Delete buttons instead of Delete, due to which the removed file will not reside in the Recycle Bin or you may empty the Recycle Bin or Mac Trash without checking its contents.

Formatting – Formatting is usually done intentionally either to get rid of some virus infections or to increase the system’s performance. But most of the users doesn’t take backup before performing the formatting process. This might result in a huge data loss as formatting erases all the files & folders including the system files & installed applications. Sometimes you might format the drive containing very important Word documents & other data, while formatting some other drive. So, a regular backup of important data is recommended to overcome these kind of situations.

Maware infection – Viruses enter your system through the internet, when suspicious sites are opened or malicious software or files are downloaded. When these files are accessed, the malicious data inside them starts multiplying itself & infects the files that come in contact with it. It sometimes deletes your important files too.

Deletion due to third party tools – Sometimes when you scan your system using an anti virus software, there is a possibility that it deletes some files without your knowledge. This happens because those documents might contain some suspicious data, which the anti-virus treats as a threat to your system. Also when you install some third-party tools, there is a possibility that some of your Word documents or other files get deleted.

Abrupt system shutdown – If your system gets shut down while working on a Word document or while transferring it from the system to an external device or vice-versa, the opened files & even other files might go missing. The reason for the shutdown can be a sudden power surge, intentional switch off by pressing Power button or a forced restart while installing a software.
