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…

RecoverySoft / August 10, 2018

Data loss due to computer crashes or virus attacks are common problems, occurring at random points in life, but still we take it as an unpleaser surprise and all because we are ignorant to the fact that data loss happens. You now need Data Recovery. Data recovery is a complicated process of salvaging data from a malfunctioning secondary storage device due to the occurrence of any physical or logical damage in the storage media. The process involves a scientific approach to recover all the data and information that was lost from such a computer crash, virus attack or hard disk malfunction. Today, it has become an important part of every operating system that depends upon the storage media and has become a basic requirement for huge business enterprises, entity and every such individual who is connected with the IT world.

Configure Exchange E-Mail Server Reverse DNS and MX Records Correctly
RecoverySoft / August 7, 2018

If DNS is setup incorrectly, over time your mail server IP will be added to blacklists. Nowadays most E-Mail servers have some kind of spam protection service which in turn means that all your inbound mail will be blocked if you do happen to be listed on a spam blacklist. In this article I will describe how to correctly configure your MX and reverse DNS records for your mail server. This article is based on an Exchange 2003/2007 server but every other messaging server will follow the same principle. Assigning an IP address Starting from the bottom up the first thing you need to do is assign a static external IP address to the internal private address of your mail server. You will need to apply these rules on your firewall to port forward SMTP (port 25) and NAT an external IP address to the internal address of the server. Something that a lot of administrators forget to do or check is to set the outgoing NAT rule to use the same external IP address created for the inbound rule to the mail server. If this isn’t set, Reverse DNS will not match and in turn your mail server will…

TMJ Symptoms – 5 Easy Steps for At Home Relief
RecoverySoft / August 6, 2018

It can range from a vague, achy feeling all over your head, neck and shoulders to severe pain that you would swear was a migraine. The truth is, your painful symptoms could very likely be caused by TMJ. And it can range in intensity from a minor irritation to enough pain to almost put you down for the count and make every day living difficult. TMJ stands for Temporo Mandibular Joint and by itself is not a problem because everyone has two of them. It’s the joint where the lower movable jaw bone, or mandible, is attached to the skull with a sling of muscles, ligament and a capsular cartilage. It’s when the joint becomes dysfuntional that issues arise and in fact the condition has become known as TMD or Temporo Mandubular Dysfunction Syndrome. And more recently many medical and dental professionals are referring to this broad group of painful symptoms as MPDS – MyoFascial Pain and Dysfunction Syndrome. The reason is, that it is being found more often that the pain is not originating from the joint. The joint was the original suspect because many times when people with painful symptoms were being examined it was noticed that the…

What Is the Recovery Time for Liposuction?
RecoverySoft / July 31, 2018

Liposuction is a surgical procedure done through tiny incisions to permanently remove any external fat that you may have in problem areas. Typically, the feeling you will have right after liposuction is a sensation of post-workout pain, or the muscle soreness and pain you may feel after extreme exercise. The areas of liposuction will feel sore and numb for several days after your procedure. After a few days, you will probably feel itching, burning, electrical shocks, and similar feelings in the areas of liposuction. This is good, because it means that the nerves supplying your skin are beginning to have less swelling and are starting to heal. After several weeks, you should have normal feelings in your skin in all areas of liposuction. Sometimes you may develop hardened soft tissue areas where you had liposuction. This may occur because you are wearing your post-surgery compression garment incorrectly, or your body may be trying to develop scar tissue in the areas of surgery. Often wearing your garment in a different fashion, or starting to massage that areas that are beginning to get harder, or both, will alleviate any asymmetry and scar tissue that is trying to form.

The Zen of Recovery
RecoverySoft / July 27, 2018

Addiction. It is probably the most horrific word I can think of in the English language. It is the thing that altered my entire life and almost rendered a further life impossible for me. I went from a successful writer and editor to a convicted felon within a very short space of time, 24 hours to be exact. That's all it takes, after all, one day, just 24 hours to turn from whatever you once were to someone you no longer know. The addiction itself of course grew and evolved over the course of a few years, but the cataclysm of change took only one day. Officially, I call myself "Lady Lazarus," although the descriptor is not mine. I owe Sylvia Plath for that name because she wrote an awe-inspiring poem of the same title. But, I use that name because technically, I am a woman who came back from the dead, much like Lazarus in the Bible. I was a respected, well-liked, quiet, and by all accounts decent woman when I started ingesting large quantities of Xanax for my anxiety problems. (I had no idea that I had a lot more than "anxiety." In fact, I had a full-blown…
