That’s usually how it begins. You hear a new noise when you start your computer. Or, you may be working along and all of a sudden, your computer prevents responding. That’s usually how it begins. You hear an unfamiliar noise when you turn on your computer. Or, you may be working along and all of a sudden, your computer stops responding.
Most people just disregard either one of these signs that something is amiss. They reboot or disregard the noise. And lies the largest problem therein. The first question I ask on something call (I run some type of computer service company) is do you have current backups of all your data? If they say no (about 75% of the time), the very first thing I really do is either to instruct them about how to back-up or if I’m onsite I do it for them. Once there’s a confirmed back-up of data, the rest is simple.
A qualified technician has about a 98% chance of retrieving data from a difficult drive when there is no physical harm. A normal consumer with some help (info, tools, or both) has about a 90% chance. But depending on the situation, it could be very irritating and frustrating. However, if there is physical damage, neglect it.

1000s, dont trouble since thats what the bill is to recover the info. Soapbox on. Before I get into the troubleshooting aspects, I want to win over upon you the importance of having current backups of all of your data. If you have current backups, no computer problem will cause you permanent damage.
The best protection against computer failing of any sort is backing up your data on a frequent basis. Just how I treat it is that if I’ve spent over an hour focusing on some task, I backup when I finish. I’m lazy, I don’t like to twice do anything, so I often backup.
OK, I’ll now log off the Soapbox. Based on what you do on your computer (and what you store there like photos, movies, financial data, etc.) backing up is the ultimate way to protect yourself. There are so many easy ways to backup these days there is no excuse for not doing this often.
