The Importance of a Backup Recovery System
RecoverySoft / August 2, 2018

When a business has serious computer issues, it can result in a serious loss of money and time, unless you have a backup recovery system. Computers have become the core instrument for storing business data. If the computer system that is being used breaks down, then that business can come to a virtual standstill. This is why it is important for a system to be in place to recover deleted files. No one likes having to recreate information and work that has been previously done. Unfortunately, unless a recovery method is implemented, most times this is what has to happen. In the event that information has been deleted and there is no backup recovery system in place, there may be other options. Many companies have found that data recovery software can help them retrieve the lost data and save them precious time in having to recreate the information.

Data Recovery Services – Be Wary of Cheap Prices
RecoverySoft / July 26, 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.

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…

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.

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.

RecoverySoft / July 12, 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 don’t 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 of “password…
