- Sherlock Holmes


The detective’s quest for data is driven by the legal system’s need for irrefutable evidence before pronouncing judgment. While we have come a long way from 19th century London where the greatest fictional detective plied his trade, the legal system’s requirement for data is as strong as ever. And as before, data recovery is a must to get to that precious information.


Although the need for data is constant, data itself, or rather how it is stored, has undergone a sea-change. No longer is data stored on notebooks and diaries; we live in an electronic world where data largely resides on hard disks. This has given rise to a whole new area of operations called e-discovery.



E-discovery (the “e” stands for electronic) pertains to discovery in civil litigation which deals with the retrieval of information in electronic format (often referred to as electronically stored information or ESI). Thus, in simple terms, e-discovery involves information stored in e-mails, instant messaging chats, documents, accounting databases, CAD/CAM files, Web sites, etc. from multiple sources like computers, tablets, USB drives, etc. It also includes metadata (data about data, such as file locations) and raw data (data in binary form).


In many cases, relevant data may have been deleted, corrupted or intentionally hidden. However, professional data recovery services can often retrieve such data when retrieval by normal means is not possible. With their extensive knowledge of data recovery, these professionals can extract relevant information accurately without affecting the normal flow of business. Whether it’s hard drive recovery from individual computers or server data recovery from server farms, they can do it all. Thus, if you are looking to strengthen your case before the courts, you should contact such an expert.


Even as the world grows increasingly connected with copious amounts of data being exchanged every second, the need for e-discovery, and consequently data recovery, is expected to increase substantially.
