There’s nothing good about a hard drive going bad. Or any drive, for that matter. It’s just as inconvenient to the photographer or videographer to have a corrupted SD card or cartridge as it is for a writer or graphic designer to lose their local drive. At least with computers, many people are in some habit of regularly backing up. But if your bad drive also happens to host your operating system, this headache becomes a migraine.
Sometimes there’s no way around it: Without help, your important data could be lost. A utility like Data Rescue, though, gives you a number of ways to recover.
