Issues With External Hard Drive
RecoverySoft / August 17, 2018

An external hard drive can be described in simple terms as a hard drive that is portable, or one that can be transported around. Although this is a very simple definition of what an external drive is, the truth is that, it is pretty much the same as it is described above. However, we can be more specific by describing it as the portable version of the fixed hard disk, which comes with a USB casing that enables it to be used on various computers with the help of an USB cable. Other than the above given differences, there is no noticeable difference between a fixed hard drive and an external hard disk. We can confirm this due to the presence of various moving parts that are present both in a fixed disk and an external disk. The main purpose for which the external hard disk is used is also pretty much the same, which is data storage. However, in this case, the stored data can be transported along with the user and accessed on the computer of his choice. Some of the most common uses of the external disk are for storage of data, which usually eat up a…

Best Methods Of Data Destruction On Computer Hard Disk Drives
RecoverySoft / August 11, 2018

We are constantly reminded of the importance of recycling. In the ICT industry, recycling of computer equipment can be useful for educational or charitable organisations. It can however be detrimental to the previous owner. Charitable establishments such as Computer Aid International will refurbish computers for reuse in various sectors including education, health and other non-profit organisations for the benefit of developing countries. It would appear Computer Aid International ‘wipe’ each hard disk drive, which is good news as it hopefully provides some certainty that data cannot be retrieved. However, it is doubtful that the ‘average’ user realises the risks involved by selling their old computer on websites such as eBay. They may delete all their files, re-install the operating system (OS) and possibly format their drive, yet the data will probably reside on the disk, typically in unallocated space. Data fragments may be present that could be used maliciously in the hands of a criminal; indeed data from any source i.e. any electronic device could be used maliciously. Discarding computer equipment without due care could lead to irreparable, financial, political and personal damage to the owner or organisation. A recent study conducted by Glamorgan University (source: Time Online website) revealed…

The Importance Of Cell Phones In Modern Society
RecoverySoft / August 10, 2018

Cell phones have become a necessity for many people throughout the world. The ability to keep in touch with family, business associates, and access to email are only a few of the reasons for the increasing importance of cell phones. Today’s technically advanced cell phones are capable of not only receiving and placing phone calls, but storing data, taking pictures, and can even be used as walkie talkies, to name just a few of the available options. When cell phones were first introduced to the public, they were bulky, expensive, and some even required a base unit that had to be transported along with the phone. Good reception was a major problem and in general, early cell phones could only be used in certain locations were the signal was particularly strong. As cell phone technology advanced, the difficult in using them became less of a problem. Today, cell phone reception has improved greatly due to the use of satellites and wireless services. As cell phones improved and became simple to use, the importance of cell phones increased accordingly. Cell phones are the perfect way to stay connected with others and provide the user with a sense of security. In the…

Activity Diagrams – Advantages, Disadvantages and Applications of Use
RecoverySoft / August 8, 2018

Activity diagrams describe the actual work flow behavior of a system in Information Technology. These diagrams are very similar to state Diagrams because activities are the actual state of doing something. These diagrams describe the actual state of activities of a system by showing all the sequence of activities performed. Also, these diagrams can show activities that are conditional or parallel. When to Use: Activity Diagrams Activity diagrams should be used in alignment with other modeling techniques like interaction diagrams and State diagrams. The main reason behind using these diagrams is to model the work flow behind the system being designed. these Diagrams are also useful for analyzing a use case by describing what actions need to take place and when they should occur, describing a complicated sequential algorithm and modeling applications with parallel processes. Activity diagrams’ advantages: UML modeling language included that these diagrams are normally easily comprehensible for both analysts and stakeholders. In UML for the IT Business Analyst, “The activity diagram is the one most useful to the IT BA for depicting work flow [because] it is simple to understand-both for BAs and end-users.” Since they are among the most user-friendly diagrams available, they are generally regarded…

The Different Types of an Exchange Backup
RecoverySoft / July 19, 2018

If you currently have exchange backup software as well as the server, you should know about some important things about the program. To start with, there are different types of them available and can range from copy to full backup. Also, you will see there's differential and incremental backup. However, the one you decide on can vary and depend on a few things. It can also depend on the type of information you have and want stored. Full backup programs are designed to backup your entire database. All log files as well as all of your databases are backed up and saved. Your data and all of your information are protected and are kept safe from computer crashes or other damage to your computer that would wipe it out. You only have to save your info one time on the backup and it keeps it stored, but you also have access to change what's in it and add info to it as well. Copy backup is similar to the normal backup process, and the only difference is that it will not mark files saved for incremental or differential backup. This simply means that you have the ability to copy any…

RecoverySoft / July 14, 2018

Aside from natural disasters, there are many other reasons that companies and businesses should require a disaster recovery plan in the event something may occur. In the corporate world, there is an increased reliance on computer networks, databases and online services more than ever which adds a great deal of vulnerability and potential for loss of data. There may be a disaster in the form of an unexpected virus, network outage, internet outage, or malfunctioning equipment at any moment in time. A company or business can not expect 24/7 access to these online services without some risk for disaster at some point. Luckily, there are several ways any size company or business can recover through business communication products and services.

Benefits of Disaster Recovery As a Service
RecoverySoft / July 6, 2018

In any business, especially in an IT firm, data is one of the key elements used in running daily operations. There are several ways in which a firm can store and protect its data. In the past, disaster preparation would often require IT staff to travel to off-premise data centers and/or copy corporate data onto tapes. However, advances in technology and computing platforms have enabled the creation of better and more scalable data storage mechanisms. These have paved the way for complete Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) solutions that can be used instead of internal IT teams. When data is breached or hacked into, uncontrollable losses will occur. To prevent this, many companies opt to have in place disaster response measures and even dedicated teams for managing such situations. Today, you’ll find two main categories of computing: cloud computing and hardware server-based computing. This includes the use of DRaaS or traditional backup methods to protect and store data. With current technology, DRaaS offers several advantages over traditional backup and disaster recovery methods. DRaaS is quite reliable and helps address many challenges, including mobility, portability and high performance, among other features. Traditional disaster recovery does not offer the capabilities that…
