It is normal to experience a moment of intense panic when you turn on your computer only to find that your hard drive is no longer working. Chances are pretty good that instead of wondering why your hard drive has suddenly crashed you are more concerned about all of the data that you had on your computer that you haven’t quite gotten around to properly backing up.

It doesn’t take most of us very long to figure out that the best way to avoid the stress of constantly worrying about the loss of data do to hard drive failure is to make sure that we regularly back up our computer files. The most common way of backing up our data files is to copy the files to a CD-ROM, although more and more of us are using a flash drive to back up files that we are still working on.

Backing up Your Files

The best way to protect your data files is to make sure that you create a back up copy of your files. Most companies require that their employees to save whatever they are working on to their hard drive several times a day and than at the end of the day, before turning off their computer for the day, the employee has to create a back up of all their data files.

The problem that some of us have run into is that, even though we though we were being smart by burning our important files to a CD-ROM is that when we insert the CD into our computer to open the file, we learn that for some reason the file either doesn’t exist or is corrupted.

The best way that I have found to make sure that my files are still available is to e-mail my important data files to myself. I simply attach whatever file I need backed up to an email and send it to myself. Not only is the file backed up and safe, I can access the file on any computer I happen to be working on, provided I have internet access.

Hard Drive Failure

If your hard drive does fail and you have not yet had a chance to back up your files, all is not lost. All you have to do is to take your computer to a certified computer technician and ask them to recover your lost data from your hard drive before they repair the problem.

If you suspect that your hard drive is getting ready to crash you should back up all of your current data files and shut your computer off right away. The faster you get your computer to a professional computer tech the less damage your hard drive will sustain.
