In two of its recent blog posts, Hard Drive Recovery Group discusses the availability of external hard drives for iPhone and iPad, as well as broaches the question of what situations a user may need a hard drive recovery service for. The posts continue the data recovery service's educational series on backup, data protection and safety intended on informing customers.
In the post entitled, "Using External Drives With Your iPad or iPhone is Now Possible", Hard Drive Recovery Group discusses a brand new feature that is slated to come with iOS13 and iPad OS, both of which are slated to be released later in 2019. That feature, of course, is the ability for iPad and iPhone users to attach Lightning-based external hard drives or with an adapter, USB3 external drives. This can greatly lessen the need for Mac oriented data recovery.
"This can only be seen as a major win for people who own iPhone or iPad computers," said Maureen Davies, spokesperson for Hard Drive Recovery Group. "One of the key difficulties that many people who own smartphones or tablets is that typically it is not possible to backup data without an intermediary device such as a PC or Mac. This will make Mac related backups quick and painless, and enable users to be far more consistent."
The post highlights the relative ease of working with an iPad/External hard drive combination, particularly as it relates to the copying of files. One of the additional bonuses is that the devices with iOS13 will allow third party apps to import files directly from an external drive, which enables the user to avoid using the Files or Photos feature. The result is a more streamlined, simple to use file transfer process that finally mirrors the relative ease available to Windows users.
"Taking a look at Mac products, there are usually more hoops to jump through when it comes to working within the Operating System, so these recent feature additions are hugely welcome," said Davies. "As the data on an Apple device gets safer, and is easy to backup, users can avoid the often steep price of Mac data recovery."
In a second post, entitled "Why You Need A Hard Drive Recovery Service", discusses some of the main reasons why hard drive crashes occur, and what a user can do in the event that files are accidentally deleted.
"One of the simplest problems to solve that causes the most user panic tends to be deleted files," said Davies. "Fortunately, the amount of data recovery software online that is built specifically for this purpose tends to be quite vast. Professional data recovery services rarely have to get involved with these minor file problems, simply because there are so many software based solution to it."
While accidental deletions tend to be much less problematic for users, actual physical damage to a solid state drive or Mac hard disk drive platters or heads can make for difficult situations. In cases like these, there is almost no alternative to dealing with a professional, bona fide hard drive recovery service.
"One of the mistakes that technically or mechanically knowledgeable people tend to commit the most is opening a hard drive and attempting to fix the drive by purchasing additional hard drive parts," said Davies. "The issue with many of these do-it-yourself repairs is simply that users tend to make errors that can literally destroy their data and make it inaccessible even to a professional. Once that line is crossed and the media or data is damaged, there is no turning back."
Davies recommends that a data recovery service be called immediately in these situations, particularly if there appears to be some kind of electronic problem or clicking sound.
"A user that understands when it's time to get help will be rewarded during the recovery process," said Davies.
