Definition Edit

Data corruption refers to errors in computer data that occur during transmission, retrieval, or processing, introducing unintended changes to the original data.

Overview Edit

Computer storage and transmission systems use a number of measures to provide data integrity, the lack of errors. In general, when there is a data corruption, the file containing that data would be inaccessible, and the system or the related application will give an error.
