Data Recovery Services
Research shows that 80% small companies that lose all their data go out of business within 6 months. For many small companies their email is their company data and if they lose it this can be disastrous.
What are the main causes of loss of emails?
Truncated File Size due to Volume Errors Corruption can happen at a file system level. File systems, at some point, may have minor inconsistencies that will not allow the file to be correctly accessed. Volume errors may invoke the operating system’s internal repair tool. These tools work to get the volume ready to read and write data. Sometimes the data is sacrificed during this repair process. If there are volume errors, the repair tool will truncate or “chop” the file. This can remove large sections of the file thereby making it inaccessible! Once you have done this you cannot go back; if you don’t have a backup you have lost your email! At this point data recovery is possible but expensive.
Exceeding the 2GB limit for a PST file in Outlook 2000. If you never delete or archive your emails in Outlook you are inviting disaster. Outlook 2000 simply cannot open a pst file that is larger than 2GB. Once it gets to this size you have a problem. The important thing is to seek help immediately from the professionals as if you let Outlook run the Inbox Repair Tool at this stage you will lose data!
Deletions can be of the message store file itself or of the internal objects, such as folders or emails.
