For many computer users, the most vital information stored on the hard disk is their collection of memorable photos. Nowadays many people enjoy capturing precious moments in digital cameras as they are the best way to live all precious moments of life again. Be it a friend’s birthday party, marriage ceremony, family or college trip, a digital camera makes it convenient to shoot each and every moment with its stunning image capturing abilities. The digital camera memory card which holds all the captured pictures has a limited storage capacity; so users transfer these images on to hard disk by thinking that the hard drive is the most trustworthy and safest place to store pictures. No doubt, the hard disk is a good data storage device, but it is also fragile one as it is prone to data loss under some unstoppable occasions.

Losing data is really annoying if you have lost irreplaceable pictures from the hard disk. However, there are times where you may end up in losing precious pictures from the hard disk.

Most of the times the digital pictures saved on the hard drive may become inaccessible due to the corruption of the computer hard drive. The hard drive gets corrupted mainly due to a virus attack, corruption of file system. A corrupted hard drive throws various format errors messages which compel you to format the hard drive in order to bring back it to the working condition. However, formatting the hard drive in the absence of a proper data backup surely fires back as formatting erases all the files at one stretch along with priceless pictures.

You may also lose valuable pictures from the computer hard drive due to a sudden termination of the system while transferring the files from the hard drive to any other external storage device by using “Cut and Paste” commands. This is because when you use this command, the files are moved from source location and gets ready to store in the destination location. So, an unintentional termination of system mid-way from a power surge or electric discharge may terminate the file transfer process halfway and you will not be able to find the picture either on hard drive or external storage device. Accumulation of the bad sectors on the hard drive also results in a picture loss. As the bad sectors are the unusable or inaccessible sectors of the hard disk any picture files stored on the bad sector prior to damage becomes inaccessible. There are many other inevitable reasons like software glitches, re-partitioning errors, reinstallation of operating system may also result in loss of photos from the hard drive.
