Among all the data recovery procedures, DVD data recovery is very important. DVD data loss can occur if the DVD is finalized unsuccessfully or if it is not burned properly. Data loss can also happen if the data is corrupted or there is damage in the DVD itself.
However, there can be other reasons such as dirty disc surface, dirty lens in the DVD reader or even software and hardware problems. Before deciding on any action to recover the data, it is very important to detect the reason for data loss. This minimizes the effort taken in checking every possible cause.
One might also have to recover data from a backup DVD. When choosing this back up media, we have to consider some points:
• Media Portability: The media that is going to be used in the process needs to be portable. Otherwise, the service might be disrupted.
• Media Size: Size of the media is also important as computers have different configurations. If the size of the media does not match the configuration of the PC, then the total system might be disturbed. It might also create data loss. If the media is smaller, compared to the configuration, it will only capture the data that will fit in it. The remaining might get lost and the user might not even know. This can create a lot of problem.
• Media Durability: Durability is another vital point. If the durability of the media is low, then the data captured in it would always be at a risk of loss. The total mechanism might be crushed due to this and create a loss of all the data captured previously.
Finally, tape is also a good option for DVD data recovery. It is very safe as it only reads the data and prepares a copy within itself. Sometimes corporate companies also choose tape for recovery.
