Questions to Ask Your Potential Cloud Service Provider
RecoverySoft / August 15, 2018

Seemingly everyone is talking about cloud solutions, from small businesses to large enterprises. It's not hard to see why – the benefits over on-site deployments are numerous – rapid deployment, potentially lower costs of ownership, and reduced maintenance and administration, to name but three. For IT companies and Managed Service Providers (MSP's) offering solutions to their clients, the cloud equals opportunity. Unsurprisingly, rather than investing the reasonable time and effort required to develop their own cloud solutions from scratch, the majority of smaller IT solution providers instead of partner with cloud service vendors to provide their clients with services ranging from CRM to backup. But one of the benefits of cloud services – rapid deployment – can also lead some IT companies to look at partnerships with cloud vendors with rose tinted glasses. If things go wrong with the cloud service, the first complaints will not come into cloud vendors – they'll come into the IT solution providers selling those services. For this reason alone, it's important for IT Solution Providers to take a step back and ask potential cloud partners "What happens when things go wrong? Below are a few questions that you should ask your potential cloud solution…

What Causes Runtime Error 6?
RecoverySoft / August 14, 2018

Runtime error 6 is an “overflow” problem that may happen for one of a handful of reasons. Runtime error 6 can occur when data gets too big for its britches. This “overflow” problem can happen when, somewhere along the way, data has been entered that is too big for its data field. What does this mean in plain English? Let’s say you’re working with Microsoft Access (a database program). You have to put information into various fields (boxes), when some of these boxes are pre-set to only accept certain values. (This can be arranged for a variety of reasons; there is no need to go into the specifics here, as it would require several articles!) If one of these fields is pre-set to accept values of only 0-255, you’d cause an overflow error if you accidentally entered, say, 377. Now of course you wouldn’t do this. However, sometimes programmers make mistakes. Sometimes a program must generate a random variable and it could be that the parameters on the generator are too wide (it generates larger numbers than it should). Nevertheless, sometimes this doesn’t happen until it’s a bit too late. That’s why searching for updates, patches, and new versions/upgrades to…

Hybrid Cloud Storage: A Tiered Approach
RecoverySoft / August 14, 2018

Hybrid Cloud Storage For hybrid cloud storage, data mostly resides within the private portion of the cloud. If apps are also deployed within the private cloud, the data store may store files and data for these apps, this should be the highest-performing storage system within your entire hybrid cloud storage strategy. It's all about time and money The costs of local and cloud data persistence is now so inexpensive that using secondary means, even tertiary mean, of storing data as an active backup system for primary persistence, or even as an up-to-date copy of the primary storage, is the best approach. With a few exceptions. In the hybrid cloud storage strategy, the secondary storage system exists in the public cloud. Data is replicated or moved to a public cloud storage system, my preference is as Amazon Web Services' (AWS) Simple Storage Service, to provide active backup for the primary storage system. In other cases, an enterprise may move older data to the public cloud to free up space in primary storage. AWS Glacier would be a great example. If a secondary storage system is used to store data moved from primary storage, be sure to design your apps to look…

RecoverySoft / August 14, 2018

Cloud computing can be defined as Internet-based computing. It is a network of computers where information, and other shared resources such as software are made available to the computers and other tools and appliances if required.

Their business was getting better with the help of this technology. As a result, many companies are now adopting this technology of this computing. There are many enthusiasts who are expecting too much from it but there are some issues that are creating problems too. However, there is still much scope of high profits.

Windows Password Reset – What to Do If You've Forgotten Your Windows Administrator Password
RecoverySoft / July 19, 2018

There are only two ways to regain access to your PC if you've forgotten your Windows Administrator password. The first is to reinstall Windows and totally wipe everything from your computer … and the second is to use a "password reset" program that will reset the password for you. Here's what to do: Method 1 – Reinstall Windows – If you've got nothing to lose from your computer, and have the knowledge to do it, you may wish to reinstall Windows to gain access to your PC again. The only problem with this method is that reinstalling Windows literally means you will lose every file and every piece of data on your PC. This is okay for some people and if you are interested in using this method, you simply need to insert the Windows disc into your PC, reboot your system and select "Boot From CD" in the BIOS options. If you do not understand how to do it, then you need to talk to a computer technician. Method 2 – Use Password Reset Software – The most common way to restore access to your PC is to "reset" the Administrator password for your system by using a piece…

Deleted Text Message Reader

Earlier, many times, we all must have wishes that just like our computer; our mobile phone also should have been provided with a recycle bin. Finally our wishes have come true, with the introduction of deleted text message reader. Now it is possible to retrieve important text messages – these could be a congratulatory, consoling message, an important address, telephone number etc. Now it is possible to recover these “lost” messages – this is because the messages are not immediately deleted from the memory of you hands free cell phone or from your SIM card (depending on where the “deleted” message was sent ) – instead, the space occupied by the “deleted “message is marked as reusable space which can be used later when there is a need for it This is why till the space occupied by the “deleted” message is erased by some other date being written above that, it is possible to recover the “lost” text message and read text messages. You will need some tools – these are a USB SIM card reader and a SIM card recovery program. The USB SIM card reader is not very expensive and could be purchased on the net also….

The Importance Of Cell Phones In Modern Society
RecoverySoft / July 18, 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…
