Is It All Really Gone Forever??
If it’s all of your important documents, pictures, music, videos and memories you mean, the answer is a big not necessarily. Even deleted files or documents on a drive in an inoperative system can be retrieved and recovered. When it comes to actual physical damage to the device containing the data we have outside sources who can provide dismantling and recovery right from the disc plate itself. Even with all of the above, data recovery is not 100%, making frequent backups so terribly important.
