Windows Password Reset – What to Do If You've Forgotten Your Windows Administrator Password
RecoverySoft / August 5, 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…

MRFS – Materials Recovery Facilities and Recycling
RecoverySoft / July 18, 2018

When many of us see the term MRFs we think that the official name for these facilities is a Material Recycling Facility, and this in many ways is what they are. However, waste management professionals will tell you that the correct term for them is Materials Recovery Facilities (MRFs). MRFs are a waste management option specifically linked to recycling, bridging the gap between collection of recyclables and reprocessing. However, it has not strictly been correct in many districts in the past to have said that they were solely for the purpose of recycling. Both within and outside Europe (the EU) a proportion of the waste is now and will be for the foreseeable future, sent to landfill. In a commercially based and unregulated MRF only those materials which could profitably be recycled by the operator would be. However, due to public pressure and in principle environmentally sound reasons in most parts of the world it has been found that recycling should not just be a largely voluntary activity carried out only where the market provides an economic benefit from such recycling. Due to risk and price volatility in the recycled materials market, without government encouragement, recycling has simply just not…

How to Fix Your Cheesecake – A Troubleshooting Guide
RecoverySoft / July 11, 2018

A cheesecake should be relatively trouble free but occasionally problems do come up. Over the years, we’ve been asked the following questions. “What’s the easiest way to make crumbs for my crust?” Lots of folks use a food processor; we don’t bother. We use a heavy duty zipper-type plastic bag and crush the crackers or cookies with a rolling pin a few at a time. We save the plastic bag for the next crust. If we’re in a hurry, we just use packaged graham cracker crumbs rather than crushing crackers. “I have lumps in my cheesecake. How do avoid those?” Most likely the lumps are from globules of cream cheese in your batter. Before adding any of the other ingredients, beat the cream cheese and granulated sugar together until completely mixed. The sugar crystals will cut through the cream cheese breaking up the globules. In the heat of the oven, the sugar will melt further breaking up any pieces. If your recipe calls for chocolate, either white or dark, the lumps could be chocolate. When the chocolate is mixed into the cool batter, it solidifies and creates lumps. To avoid that, make sure your melted chocolate is hot, well above…

Super Shredder and Other File Shredders for Permanent File Deletion
RecoverySoft / May 29, 2018

When you delete a file from your computer, it may seem permanent and irreversible enough, but in fact it is not. It is still able to recover this data through a variety of means, using software designed for this purpose. This may be helpful for accidental deletions, but when private or confidential data is involved, this represents security vulnerability. File deletion works by just changing the tag on a particular file to the value 'deleted', and making it inaccessible from the default set of menus and directories. However, the data and the file itself actually remains on the hard disk, and only disappear when it is overwritten in the future by new data. But this overwriting may not happen until after the file data has already been recovered! In fact, some operating systems have a built-in UNDELETE command, which can easily recover recently deleted files. Here, this really is a big vulnerability that can be exploited by malicious parties to gain access to confidential or private information. An analogous problem arises in disposing of confidential paperwork, and the typical solution is to use so called paper shredders. These shredders tear the paper into fine strips which are then nearly impossible…
