Alcohol and Drug Detox – Beginning the Road to Recovery
RecoverySoft / August 20, 2018

Alcohol and drug detox is the first phase of any rehab treatment for hard-core substance abusers, and it is designed to rid your body of the toxins it has accumulated from chronic alcohol and drug consumption. But alcohol and drug detox has built-in measures to control the severity of any withdrawal symptoms, and is done in a medical setting. Successful alcohol and drug detox can take anywhere from three to fourteen days, depending on the physical condition of the person being treated. During the course of the detox, the patient may receive medications to reduce their symptoms. Alcohol And Drug Detox Treatment Phases There are three phases to an alcohol and drug detox program. During the first phase, the doctor will pay close attention to the patient's symptoms and manage them as needed to maintain his or her comfort. The second phase of an alcohol and detox program is the physical detoxification phase, during which the patient learns basic nutrition so that his or her system can continue to rid itself of accumulated poisons and rebuild itself with a balanced food plan. Finally, the patient will undergo emotional detoxification, learning to understand the emotional reasons for his or her dependence…

Best Methods Of Data Destruction On Computer Hard Disk Drives
RecoverySoft / August 19, 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…

The Best Computer For Graphic Design
RecoverySoft / August 15, 2018

Since Desktop Publishing (DTP) came out in the eighties, graphic designers have been utilizing computer technology. This has pushed all graphic designers to become competent with computer hardware at the very least. What is Desktop Publishing (DTP)? In the 1980s, it was a common term applied to digital publishing systems. These systems were developed to replace large, pre-press, specialist design and compositing systems. Graphic designers rely heavily on computers whether these are Windows PCs or Apple Macs. Whichever computer a graphic designer chooses to use, he/she will opt for the best computer that he/she can purchase. Graphic designers will rarely choose cheap computer hardware. Back in the eighties, Macs were the only choice for designing and printing. Almost all design layout and graphics software was developed for Macs only or even if the software could be used in Microsoft Windows PC, it was much more reliable on a Mac. Additionally, at that time, Macs were associated with the different technologies used in the prepress and Windows PC was just not a practical choice. Today, modern versions of Mac OS X and Windows allow graphics designers to use design software either in a Mac or PC – they are no longer…

Data Recovery Services – Be Wary of Cheap Prices
RecoverySoft / August 15, 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 typically 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…

Hybrid Cloud Storage: A Tiered Approach
RecoverySoft / August 14, 2018

Hybrid Cloud Storage For hybrid cloud storage, data mostly resides within the private portion of the cloud. If apps are also deployed within the private cloud, the data store may store files and data for these apps, this should be the highest-performing storage system within your entire hybrid cloud storage strategy. It's all about time and money The costs of local and cloud data persistence is now so inexpensive that using secondary means, even tertiary mean, of storing data as an active backup system for primary persistence, or even as an up-to-date copy of the primary storage, is the best approach. With a few exceptions. In the hybrid cloud storage strategy, the secondary storage system exists in the public cloud. Data is replicated or moved to a public cloud storage system, my preference is as Amazon Web Services' (AWS) Simple Storage Service, to provide active backup for the primary storage system. In other cases, an enterprise may move older data to the public cloud to free up space in primary storage. AWS Glacier would be a great example. If a secondary storage system is used to store data moved from primary storage, be sure to design your apps to look…

Generativity and Recovery! Part Two: Generativity in My Own Recovery
RecoverySoft / August 11, 2018

My three-month psychiatric incarceration seemed to be aimed at discrediting me after I had leaked newspaper stories. On my way to Canada to seek asylum, I was stopped by police. I evaded them for three days through rural towns and surrendered one midnight, from a ditch on a mountain pass. It was hard for me to accept the way I was treated. Confined to a ward for two weeks, I walked in circles. I barked on the payphone testing many of my supports. They all just said I was delusional. I really did learn a lot from a mob boss’s daughter. There are a lot to the rules that govern those of us who get trafficked in this land of the free. Still, I did what I could to disrespect the mob especially because my counselor told me not to. And so, I endured a month of chronic warehousing conditions. I had to wear other peoples’ clothes to brave the ice-cold of the barely heated ward. Two and a half months in my psychiatrist finally responded to my requests to meet with her. “You know, Tim, one time we had someone come here saying the FBI was following him. In…

How to Select the Best Backup Software
RecoverySoft / August 10, 2018

Understanding why we need to use backup software is one thing, and in some cases understanding the backup software itself can be a completely different ball game, however, this does not have to be the situation in all cases. In fact there are some very user-friendly backup software solutions available with some great benefits. So when you are selecting your backup utility how can you be sure you are selecting what is best for your needs? Firstly you need to take into account your technical knowledge of computer backup programs; If you are not highly educated in this area, as most of us are not, it would be a crazy option to select a complex backup solution that we are unable to receive the maximum benefits from as we would not understand how to use it to its full potential. Next we need to think about what we want from our backup and restore software; there are some very expensive products on the market that will only backup your data and files, while there are other backup software that will provide a complete back up solution in the way of saving not only your data and files, but also the…

How To Permanently Delete Files?
RecoverySoft / August 9, 2018

To permanently delete a file it is not enough to press delete or to empty the recycle bin. Operating systems like Windows or Mac OS delete the file by marking it invisible and by releasing the disk space it was using. In fact, it is impossible to delete the file, you can only overwrite it with some other data. This basic principle of computer file system is used to undelete files. If we have, for example, accidentally deleted some file, we can recover it by using some undelete tool. If the data was not overwritten we can get the original file back as it was prior to deletion. For many computer users this behavior of files is not problematic. We don’t care what happens with the files after they are deleted. But there are cases when we care or at least we should care. When we would like to dump the old computer or donate it to somebody we don’t want to leave all the files on the disk. Deleting them or even formatting the disk does not solve the problem. With simple recovery tools it is possible to recover formatted partitions and deleted files. This is a problem because…

Windows Password Reset – What to Do If You've Forgotten Your Windows Administrator Password
RecoverySoft / August 9, 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…
