Causes for TIFF Files Loss

TIFF format makes it easy to transfer data among different applications or computers. However, you may encounter data loss problem when you edit or transfer TIFF files on an application or computer. Here are some possible reasons that might lead TIFF file loss:

1. Formatting is a common reason for data loss. You might accidentally format hard disk drive on which you save many precious TIFF files. Probably, you quick format the disk drive which only erases everything on the drive. Or you might full format the disk drive which not only erases all data but also checks and marks possible bad sectors on the drive. Whether you perform a quick format or full format, system will mark the formatted disk drive as empty device for new data storage.

2. Deletion is another common cause that leads to data loss. When you delete TIFF files from computer internal hard disk drive, the deleted data will not be erased permanently but it will be moved to recycle bin. However, if you mistakenly deleted TIFF images from a removable disk, the deleted data does not go to recycle bin. If you emptied recycle bin or deleted data was not moved to recycle bin, the deleted TIFF images might be lost forever unless you can use data recovery software.

3. Another possible reason might be that the storage media like USB drive, hard disk drive, etc used for storing TIFF images is corrupted due to virus infection or other reasons. System usually pops up some error message when you attempt to open a corrupted drive to view data.
