Electronic Discovery Services

Sunday, February 27th, 2011

Electronic data discovery is a collection of huge chunks of data that is either lost due to some accident or deleted due to some reason. Such electronic data retrieved is used in litigation cases where electronic data is evidence.

Electronic document discovery services for law firms and corporate clients involved in litigation are no longer a matter of requesting printed copies of documents. New and extremely valuable data can be found in accounting systems, Email or databases if one knows where to look. This retrieval requires processing and review of large volumes of desperate data, many times eliminating the expense of converting irrelevant data.

Electronic discovery enables you to streamline e-discovery by providing a window into your case data before data processing and review. It helps you gain control and transparency by determining filtering guidelines.

Electronic data discovery includes retrieval of e-mails, voice mails, instant messages, e-calendars, audio files, data on handheld devices, animation, metadata, graphics, photographs, spreadsheets and other types of digital data. E-discovery can also be in the form offline discovery carried out on a particular computer for a particular case.

Computer forensics is an electronic data discovery service that includes the collection, preservation, analysis, and presentation of computer-related evidence. Computer evidence can be useful in criminal cases, civil disputes, and human resources/employment proceedings.

Computer forensics is a specialized form of e-discovery in which an investigation is carried out on the contents of the hard drive of a specific computer. After physically isolating the computer, investigators make a digital copy of the hard drive. Then the original computer is locked in a secure facility to maintain its pristine condition. All investigation is done on the digital copy.

When a case goes for trial, computer evidence can prove to vital for judges in making a decision. This can prove a reversal of the case entirely. Electronic discovery services are extremely useful when compared to traditional evidences and helps dig the smallest of evidences to alter a case.

Hard Drive Recovery Services

With the advent of technology there is a broad range of problems we encounter on a daily basis. The current trends allow us to store a huge amount of data in the form of files on computer hard drives. Hard drives have replaced the earlier cumbersome piles of papers that were susceptible to damage easily.

With hard drives on computers we can save humongous chunks of data that can be retrieved at an unimaginable speed. However, there is a possibility of this data being lost, the drive not accessible, the drive getting corrupt and other unexpected snags. Hard drives being the most valuable assets of a company should not be messed with.

If you chance to lose data due to a hard drive crash, a state of the art means by Data Triage Technologies assists you to recover data from corrupted drives. In the absence of back ups such data recovery is invaluable.

How is data retrieved?

Hard drive data recovery is the process of retrieving lost data from hard drive. This retrieval is due to the inaccessibility of data through normal recovery processes. Notwithstanding the fact that your hard drive has crashed or locked up for some reason, Data Triage has hard drive recovery services that can recover the data using a variety of hard drive data recovering techniques.

Why does a hard drive crash?

Reasons can be many when it comes to hard drive failures. One of the main reasons of a full blown hard drive crash can be attributed to a hardware issue. The hard drive is a magnetic disc that spins and has an extended arm that collects data from anywhere in the hard drive. If this arm fails to function or the motor overheats or stops spinning, then there is a possibility of your hard drive crashing resulting in an inability to access any data from all hard drive areas. Apart from this hardware issue, hard drive crashes can also be caused by corrupted registry files or system files. Viruses, Trojan horses, Adware and Spyware can also cause system file corruption leading to hard drive crash.

What is hard drive data recovery service?

Hard drive data recovery service is a service that has acquired a great deal of specialization today. The specialized hard drive recovery services can safely enter into any system, network, or data storage device to recover data and determine whether the data has been manipulated, deleted, destroyed or damaged. Depending on what data you need to recover, Data Triage experts can recover data, phrases, files, numbers or keywords. These services can also verify if any illegal use of proprietary information took place or when and how the data was accessed.

Data thus retrieved can be preserved and reproduced in a viewable format. This format saves your time and resources because retrievable data may not be in a format that could be easily viewable or comprehensible to you. Hard drive data recovery can also be done on data storage devices that have been destroyed by fire or flood.
