Hitachi is one of the brands of a hard disk drive which allows users to save
various files is well organized and well-protected way. All of the files that
are present on Hitachi hard drive can be accessed multiple number of times with
utmost ease. Generally we make use of storage device like Hitachi to create
backup of the crucial files. Such crucial files at times get deleted or missing
from saved memory space area due to some reason. As this kind unanticipated
thing happen users get demoralized and instead of implementing recovery
software, leave the situation as it is. Those users need to understand that
even if, the file isn’t visible anywhere it can still be recovered back by use of
software like Hitachi File Recovery.
Need for software like Hitachi File Recovery may arise due to
various reasons. A few of the frequently occurring one’s are detailed as
Unintentional Deletion: Along time, certain files in the system might seem unimportant, and henceforth users get to clear useless files, that saves the disk space. While
deleting those unwanted files, if any of the important files are selected at this stage then the vital files will also get deleted.
Improper Ejection: One of the other common reasons for file
inaccessibility with the Hitachi hard drive is due to improper ejection or removal
of the drive. Usually, users abruptly pull out the external Hitachi HD while it is in use. This hurriedness, at times, leads
to corruption of Hitachi hard drive file system, thereby leading to
inaccessibility of files present on the hard disk drive.
Accidental Formatting: Formatting is the best way to get rid of
each file present on Hitachi hard drive. However, if this simple to use
command is applied unknowingly then it can result in severe data loss. None of
the files are present on the hard drive after implementation of format command,
so if you are going to opt for format command then make sure; it is applied on
Virus Attack: Viruses are small programs that get intruded
in external storage device like Hitachi via internet or system to which it is
attached. If these miniature programs are of low intensity then it may corrupt
just a few of the files. But, if the virus is of high level then it can lead to
damages to the Hitachi disk file system, therewith, files turn inaccessible or unreadable.
Deletion of Partition: Since Hitachi hard drives are
usually of large size, therefore it is very advantageous to create a few of the
partitions. By creating partitions on the hard drive we can manage files in a
much more structured way. But, while creating the partition if we accidentally
delete any partition then each of the files and folders present on that
respective drive gets unreachable.
Other reasons: There can be different other reasons that
can cause file loss from Hitachi hard drive such as MBR corruption, corruption
due to bad sectors, and the deletion due to some third-party software.
All of the above-detailed scenarios can be easily resolved by use of Hitachi
File Recovery software. But, it must be noted that implementation of recovery
software as early as possible. The reason behind it is that if the files that
are to be rescued or recovered are overwritten by any of the new file or folder
then it would be impossible to recover them back.
Hitachi File Recovery software has one of the simplest graphic user
interfaces that allow even the inexperienced users to easily recover files from
storage device like Hitachi. As scanning of hard disk drive is complete on the
drive users can easily preview the files before allocating memory space for
those files. Many a time users prefer to recover files of some specific type
those users can easily set the file type before triggering the scanning
procedure on the hard drive. One of the other benefits of utilizing this
application is that it allows users to construct recovery session which allows
users to skip scanning next time they wish to recover files, henceforth,
decreasing the time taken to recover deleted & lost files from Hitachi Touro Mobile 1TB hard disk drive.
The files that are listed after scanning gets completed can be sorted into
four different categories such as file name, file size, creation date of the
file or folder, and size of the file. Hitachi File Recovery can be easily used
over different Windows and Mac operating system such as Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7,
Windows XP, Windows Vista, Mac OS X Mountain Lion, Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X
Leopard, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Mavericks, Yosemite. El Capitan and Sierra. A few of the supported file
system are HFSX, HFS+, NTFS, NTFS5, ReFS, FAT16, FAT32, and ExtFAT. Since
storage device like Hitachi can save a wide range of files, therefore, if
required by users they can compress the files before saving them at any of the
hard disk drives.
A few of the precautionary measures that can minimize chances of data loss
on Hitachi hard drive are:
- Always make use of the delete command when you are sure that selected file or
folder is no more required
- Implement commands like formatting and repartitioning after cross-checking
- Follow recommended procedure for ejecting or removing Hitachi hard drive
from the attached system
- Make use of reliable third-party software, so that no inappropriate
deletion or file loss may occur
- Install reliable antivirus on the system so that virus or malware intrusion
