Using a TENS Machine to Fight the Negative Feelings of Depression
RecoverySoft / October 20, 2018

First of all, I’m not a doctor or therapist. I just have spent most of my life learning from them, to undo the effects of major depression that I’ve had from childhood. If you suffer from depression, first talk to your medical professional to see what approach is best for you. That is what I’ve done, but I add to what I’ve learned by trying a few other things on my own. Don’t do anything to yourself that is potentially self-injurious, it pays to research any new technique or approach thoroughly, just to be safe. Whatever works for me may not work for you, we all have our own ways of responding to different treatments. I just know that not all my recovery has come from what was learned at the doctor’s office. Being exceptionally strong-willed, my mission has mainly been to boost self-esteem, and fight those inner feelings of sadness that never go away (effects of depression.) Here are some ways that have helped me live a productive and successful life, despite mental challenges. Six months ago, it was necessary for me to go for physical therapy for a slipped disk in my back. The therapist hooked me up…

Safe Online Retirement Policy For Your PC
RecoverySoft / August 30, 2018

After servicing you for years on end without any complains or anything, your computer is now due for a retirement. Of course, the decision still rests on you as the rightful owner of the electronic device. However, if you feel that you are ready to let go and replace, sell or donate your good ol 'trusted machine, you should note that before it leaves your possession, everything on its hard drive should be totally eradicated and erased. This would prevent other people from accessing your private information and use them for identity theft activities. Before you unplug your computer for the very last time, you will manually delete all your files that are saved in the drive. Another option would be to perform a format on all the drives that are built into your computer. What you should remember though is the fact that although you've already deleted the file through manual deletion or formatting, a computer expert, hacker or identity theft criminal may still be able to recover these files which can then put you and your family in a very compromising situation. Here's a list of the files that you should remove before you sell, donate or dispose…

Best Methods Of Data Destruction On Computer Hard Disk Drives
RecoverySoft / August 10, 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…

Partition Recovery After STOP 0x000000ED (0xaaaaaaaa, 0xC0000032, 0xcccccccc, 0xdddddddd)
RecoverySoft / March 25, 2018

Creating partitions in our system has made working on the system fun and easy. It has not only improved the speed of computer, but has also helped in managing things. Generally, people keep at least two partitions: a boot partition and a data partition. In the boot partition, all the things vital for booting system are saved, which include, MBR (master boot code, the disk signature, and the partition table), system files, and the operating system. The data partition contains all kinds of user files. This ensures that harm to the boot drive doesn’t corrupt data stored in the other partition. However, if you are upgrading your system, and suddenly you find that the system doesn’t load, and all your data saved in it becomes inaccessible, then, you have to opt for ways to recover partition. Consider, you are upgrading your Windows system to the XP version. When you first restart it after the upgrade, you find a blue screen with the following message written on it, STOP 0x000000ED (0xaaaaaaaa,0xC0000032,0xcccccccc,0xdddddddd) UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME where, aaaaaaaa, cccccccc, and dddddddd are hexadecimal numbers Technical Details for this error: The parameter 0xC0000032 of the Stop error is a clear indication of the damage of the…

RecoverySoft / March 23, 2018

Data recovery is something that has been gaining importance in recent years, and the reason for this is nothing but the rise in the number of data loss cases. Though data recovery software are almost everywhere on the internet, certain users have not yet been able to understand the exact concept of recovery of data. This has led to people downloading the wrong recovery utility, people trying out free utilities which are of not much use in recovering deleted and lost data. There is another concept which is less understood, and that is related to data loss and data corruption which will be discussed in detail in this article. There is a world of difference when it comes to data loss and data corruption, and this has to be understood properly by the user in order to make data recovery a success. Corruption of a file or a folder basically means that the data present in the file or the folder has been affected partially, or that a part of the file or folder has gone missing, due to many reasons, similar to the ones that cause data loss. Recovery of a corrupted file is extremely difficult and hence a…

Recovering Data From a Broken Hard Drive
RecoverySoft / March 21, 2018

Death of a hard drive can be very heartening at times. You can lose all your pictures, music and documents that way. As long as the files are not corrupted on your drive, they can be safely recovered. There are no guarantees that you will always rescue each and everything from the broken drive. 1. Before you open the computer case, remember to unplug the computer from main power supply. Remove other electrical appliances if they are placed close to the CPU cabinet. 2. Rubbing your hands against the metal can save your drive from possible static electricity flow. Choose a cabinet paneling that is easiest to open. You should also consider the side of the cabinet that is suitable for detaching the hard drive. 3. You will have to use special screw drivers to open the small screws that attach the drive to your computer. 4. Disconnect IDE and power cables connected to your hard drive. Thick sized cable is IDE and it carries data and control signals to and from the central processing unit. Place the hard drive on an insulated surface. There should be no electric or magnetic charge. 5. Carefully look along the IDE cable connected…
