RecoverySoft / February 15, 2019

The role that a Digital Forensics Investigator (DFI) is rife with continuous learning opportunities, especially as technology expands and proliferates into every corner of communications, entertainment and business. As a DFI, we deal with a daily onslaught of new devices. Many of these devices, like the cell phone or tablet, use common operating systems that we need to be familiar with. Certainly, the Android OS is predominant in the tablet and cell phone industry. Given the predominance of the Android OS in the mobile device market, DFIs will run into Android devices in the course of many investigations. While there are several models that suggest approaches to acquiring data from Android devices, this article introduces four viable methods that the DFI should consider when evidence gathering from Android devices. A Bit of History of the Android OS Android’s first commercial release was in September, 2008 with version 1.0. Android is the open source and ‘free to use’ operating system for mobile devices developed by Google. Importantly, early on, Google and other hardware companies formed the “Open Handset Alliance” (OHA) in 2007 to foster and support the growth of the Android in the marketplace.

Granted a scalpel one has a longer recovery time and a little more discomfort than a no scalpel vasectomy, but there is still recovery time. The doctor will give you a set of instructions for what to do following your vasectomy and it is this that I would like to discuss. The mystery is actually a lot worse than the reality so brace yourself. Below is a typical list of things to do when recovering from a vasectomy. Your doctor may give you a slightly different list but the idea will be the same. 1. The doctor will tell you to stay off of your feet for a few days following the vasectomy procedure.

Recommended Fonts For Technical Documents
RecoverySoft / October 31, 2018

“As the saying goes, type is a beautiful group of letters, not a group of beautiful letters.” – Mathew Carter. I happen to agree with Carter because we do not select a font for every letter, we select a font for all letters. Selecting font is the most important part of formatting and designing your technical document. In my opinion, fonts show your understanding and sense of the document you are putting forward to the readers. For technical documents, the fonts should show your sober, fit, neat personality. Fonts like Bradley, Ravie, Harrington, etc show your fun side, which is not suitable for technical documents. Recommended Fonts: The most suitable fonts for technical documents are SANS SERIF and SERIF groups. SANS SERIF fonts include the Arial, Helvetica, Tahoma, and Verdana. And the SERIF fonts include Times Roman, Times New Roman, Georgia, and Bookman. Definitions: Technical definition of the SERIF term is, “a typeface having small strokes at the end of the main strokes of each character”. In easy language, the SERIF fonts have feet at the end of each letter. According to few researches, it makes it much easier to read the content. As in SANS SERIF, SANS means NO…

Why Data Recovery Could Fail
RecoverySoft / October 28, 2018

It is possible that when you take your data to a data recovery specialist that not all the data, and in some cases no data at all will be recovered. There are some things we do that interfere with the recovery process and here are some of them: One of the things that people do is that they continue saving data, backing up and even installing software as the hard disk is failing. When this happens, overwriting may occur on the hard drive and data may be permanently lost. Just for your knowledge, when the hard disk is failing, it can be said to be in a corrupt state.
