Compact flash drives are one of the most commonly used type of mass storage in today s world of technology. The main idea to invent these storage devices was to save large files concerning photos, videos and games. So, the compact flash drives are mainly used in cameras, video recorders, game consoles etc.
Compact flash drives being an electronic device is subjected to various risks. Damage to either the file or the storage device itself can occur naturally or can be due to human errors.
LARGE FILE SIZE
The main reason for data to be at risk is due to its size. We look to save large amount of photos or videos but the quality of the image plays a huge part. Better quality involves taking up more memory than usual. It becomes more complicated when we are recording videos. We do not know the amount of space it consumes and sometimes there is a possibility that media can be incomplete. This phenomenon can lead to files that are corrupt.
CF cards like other storage devices can be targeted by viruses. The only preventive measure is to ensure we have an antivirus software installed when we connect CF cards through an adapter to transfer or save files. The attack of viruses can result in files being corrupted or eventually deleted.
Another important feature to consider while using Compact flash memory cards is the range of temperature in which it operates. -45 degree Celsius to 85 degrees Celsius. The specific voltage needs to be supplied i.e. 3.3V or 5V. It depends entirely on the type of CF card involved.
ACCIDENTAL REMOVAL OF FILES
This is one of the most common mishaps involved in any storage device. Human damage is the highest percentage. We tend to delete files accidently or try to modify files that can result in loss of data. There is no way of preventing this but we can be cautious by backing up the data.
CF cards are mostly employed in cameras, camcorders etc. We tend to press on the format button by mistake or intentionally which can remove data.
There are few storage devices or cameras that use CF card as an internal storage. When it is dropped down or damaged by accident there is a possibility that data =stored on the drive is at risk.
Always remember data that is deleted is not permanently gone until overwriting takes place. The main idea to prevent loss of data is to identify quickly that data is at risk and visit a data recovery specialist.
