Is it a good idea to recover data using Norton or other disk utilities?

Nov 13th, 2007 22:38
Maneet Puri,

Although, most disk utilities offer admirable preventive maintenance by
fixing minor problems, however, they might be ineffective in case your
system is hit by extreme corruption. You must not use a utility program
if it doesn’t allow saving an “undo” file of the repairs it makes. In
case, the drive makes unusual noises such as clicking, buzzing or
scraping, do not try to use any other type utility software. Simply shut
down the computer to prevent further damage to the drive and its data.
