A customer reports that recently several files cannot be accessed. The service technician decides to check the hard disk status and the file system structure. The technician asks the customer if a backup has been performed on the disk and the customer replies that the backup was done a week ago to a different logical partition on the disk. What should the technician do before performing diagnostic procedures on the disk?
- Run the CHKDSK utility.
- Perform file restore from the existing backup copy at the logical partition.
- Install a new hard disk as the primary disk, then make the current disk a slave.
- Back up the user data to a removable drive.
Answers Explanation & Hints:
Always perform a backup before beginning any troubleshooting. Even though the data was backed up to a different partition, the data is still on the same hard drive. If the drive crashes, the data might not be recoverable.
