Though data can get lost at any time or at any moment, there are a few measures or tips that can be applied to avoid data loss. Some of these include:
- Store your data at different locations. Mostly data loss occurs when either the operating system or the hard disk fails. Therefore, try to create 2 or more partitions on the hard disk and store data separately on them. To reduce the chance of data loss, store Windows in one partition and all the important data in other partitions. This will ensure that, even if Windows or the primary partition fails or becomes corrupt, your data will remain intact. Various mediums can be used to store data, like external or removable storage mediums like CD, Floppy, Pen drive, USB, etc.
- Disk Cleanup utility present in Windows should be used to remove unwanted files and fragments from the computer system. Disk Defragmenter should be used frequently to arrange and re-arrange your files and improve the performance of the computer.
- Beware of malicious and harmful software like malware. The biggest threat to your computer is virus, as it replicates itself and creates entries in the registry, which lead to harmful results. To combat such harmful programs, use a good anti-virus software. In addition, use a registry cleaner to remove the file remnants and clean up the registry.
- Last but not the least, always remember to create and maintain regular backups for your data. This is considered to be the most effective way of avoiding data loss. To create a backup, you can use inbuilt NTBackup tool present in Windows.
These measures will help avert disastrous situation of data loss.
