Why Does File Recovery Take So Long? An Expert's Perspective

Data has become an integral part of many companies' daily operations, so when a company needs data recovery services, they want it done as quickly as possible. But why does file recovery take so long? The answer lies in the size of the hard drive, both physically and logically, and the type of data being recovered. The larger the hard drive, the longer it takes to scan and recover the data correctly. This is because recovery tools must be comprehensive enough to find lost data, and when scanning a TB drive, files may not appear in the left panel until they are sorted by type, tree view, or deleted list.

Additionally, reconstructing files from metadata is a time-consuming process, as each file must be reconstructed individually. The size and type of data also play a role in how long it takes to recover files. For example, large files are not stored in one physical space in their entirety, so recovery tools must be able to locate all parts of the file. Furthermore, if important files have been accidentally deleted or a hard drive has been formatted, MyRecover can be used to rescue the data.
