Data Disasters – Horror Stories of Data Loss
RecoverySoft / June 4, 2018

The threat of data loss exists with almost every click of your mouse. Life in the online world can be dangerous. Smart businesses will do whatever is required to minimize that risk. Have you ever lost all of the data on a floppy disk and had to redo an entire afternoon’s work? Perhaps you have rendered a music or game CD unusable because of a tiny scratch? Maybe you have experienced a full fledged hard drive meltdown that resulted in gigabytes of lost data and months, even YEARS of lost effort. The “worst case scenario” happened to me a few years ago. I received a call from a friend informing me that my home had been broken into and the burglars had not only stolen the electronics in the living room but had also taken the house’s PCs. I learned the hard way that data backup is something that every computer user who has important data on their hard drive cannot live without. Whether you simply purchase an external drive that you can connect via USB or Firewire, or sign up for offsite secure data backup, make sure you take steps to guarantee that your data is safe and sound,…

File Recovery Software – Find Files You Thought Were Lost Forever
RecoverySoft / March 26, 2018

File recovery software is great to have when you experience PC problems. From light crashes to system halts, you can easily recover important files and documents. From photographs to business collateral, the program can retrieve saved files and folders. They are compatible with an array of operating systems, and can even work on your portable devices. If you work from home, chances are you keep most documents on a drive. Whether the drive is built-in or external, you need dependable software to access this material in the event of a crash. A system crash does not necessarily mean that the entire unit cannot be accessed. There are situations, in which certain components or areas have been affected. This could be due to a virus, or simply because your firewall or anti-virus software has expired. Unfortunately, this can result in malicious ad ware or mal ware infections. They can attack your registry, and truly slow down your computer. Although anti-virus protection is available, there might be times when more intricate software is required. With so many brands and products, file recovery software is highly sought after. This software can help restore previous functions and settings. It also works to repair corrupted…

How Do I Recover Data from a Damaged Hard Disk? Part 2
RecoverySoft / March 25, 2018

What the heck is disk imaging and how can it help us recover our hard disk data? I have no idea. Just kidding! I know. I'm a pro at this. Basically just think of it as taking a snapshot of the data you want to recover. You then draw from scratch some more data after you go back and fix all the internal damage to the file system. After this is done, you still may not be 100% back to normal, but you should at least get some of your data back. What tools do we need for this? Use a DOS tool like HDClone and that should do the trick. Most of the time you can recover data from all the non-physical parts of the hard disk. Some studies have been done with an open source program called DCFLdd on a Linux 2.4 Kernel system that actually screwed up the hard disk even more. And this is when the data was available and did not need to be recovered! So stick with DOS for now. Or if you have a friend in the FBI or police department, you could ask him to burn you a copy of ILook IXImager,…
