Data Recovery Services – Be Wary of Cheap Prices
RecoverySoft / July 24, 2018

Data recovery is a specialized, complicated process. Proper hard drive recovery can require manipulation of data at the sector level, transplantation of internal components and various other procedures. These techniques are very involved and require not only talented, knowledgeable technicians, but also an extensive inventory of disk drives to use for parts when necessary and clean facilities to conduct the work. Unfortunately these factors mean that, in most cases, recovery services are quite expensive. Technician training, hard drive inventories and special equipment all come with a cost. If you search for disk recovery services, you will likely find several smaller companies that offer hard disk data recovery for a fraction of the prices usually quoted by larger, more experienced organizations. These companies often operate from small offices or, in some cases, private homes. They do not possess clean room facilities, large disk drive inventories or many other pieces of equipment necessary to successfully complete most hard drive recovery cases. When you take into account all of the training, parts and facilities necessary, you can see how it is impossible for a company to charge $200 for a hard drive recovery and not operate at a loss. What these companies usually…

How DATA is LOST
RecoverySoft / July 24, 2018

Over 95% of the people and businesses that I speak with have experienced data loss. However the sad fact is that the majority of businesses are woefully unprepared and do not understand the serious risk of data loss. Do you have a disaster recovery plan? The data that you store on your computer can be lost in many ways. Many people are not aware of the various ways that their data can be placed in jeopardy. First, there are the obvious ways: Physical damage to the computer, such as fire or water damage, is one surefire way to lose all the data on your computer. Although insurance may cover the physical damage to your machine(s), and you may be able to replace the actual hardware, no insurance policy can resurrect your data. Another common way that individuals lose the data they have worked so hard to build up is THEFT. Much like damage done to your computer via various natural disasters, insurance may cover the physical hardware, but no policy will be able to save the information stored on your hard drive and other physical media. Without some form of backup solution, your data is at risk every day. There…

7 Ways to Prepare Your Data Center for a Natural Disaster
RecoverySoft / July 23, 2018

No one wants to think about a disaster crippling or even destroying their data center. But even as hurricane season has ended for Atlantic and Gulf Coast states, wildfires are raging in Southern California. Earthquakes are an ever-present danger. Disaster planning is moving higher up in the priority list for many data center managers. Disaster recovery (DR) planning typically focuses on data protection and application availability. Most organizations consider the information maintained on servers and storage devices to be infinitely more valuable than the technology itself. However, DR plans should also include provisions for protecting equipment from physical damage. Location : Ideally, data centers would be located in a geographical area that's not prone to natural disaster. That's seldom possible, so organizations must do the best they can to isolate it from any disaster that does occur. That means locating the room in an interior room or at least as far away from windows as possible. In areas where hurricanes and tornadoes are the greatest threat, an underground location may be the best option (without flooding is a problem). In earthquake zones, it's critical to select a well-constructed building that's compatible with the latest codes. Backup Power : Power outages…

Data Storage Evolution
RecoverySoft / July 23, 2018

Data storage has come a long way starting from the basic DNA and RNA strands that can hold a large amount of information about various properties and characteristics of an organism. The specialty of this is that the data contained in each strand of the DNA is unique for each individual organism, and this makes it even more special. Moving over from organism, we can see data storage occurring in the non digital form, in the case of books, paintings, canvas etc. There is also storage of data that happens on analog storage devices like tape drivers, optical film that is used in analog cameras etc. Finally there is digital storage that happens digitally. The first form of digital data storage happened in the form of tape drives, which made use of magnetic tapes for storage of data. These were available in large capacities and were best suited for archival storage of data, which made it more preferred for storing archival data. The next type of storage media that became popular immediately was the floppy disk. The floppy diskette was small in size, and it easy to carry. But this device was capable of holding only a limited quantity of…

Backup To DVD: 8 Reasons Why
RecoverySoft / July 23, 2018

A backup to DVD gives you advantages that no other backup method can match. Here are 8 advantages you have when doing a backup to DVD: Low initial cost – These days, DVD writers are often bundled with new computers. Even if your computer does not have one built-in, you can get one for about $ 40. Not only that, but the drive can be used to make DVDs of your home movies, burn CDs with your music selections, or just to copy data. If you have a DVD writer for any of these reasons, the backup function is a free extra . Blank DVDs are cheap – Blank DVDs cost only cents per disk . There is no other medium that gives you the same cost benefit. If you plan on doing a regular backup to DVD, I recommend that you start out by buying a spindle of blank DVDs. Backup history – As you backup files to DVD, you build up a history of how the files have changed . This can really help you if you have accidently overwritten any files, or changed something three weeks ago to a document and need to see what the file…
