Corrupted DBF Files – How To Prevent And Repair Dbase Corruption
RecoverySoft / October 18, 2018

.DBF (DataBase File) files are some of the most commonly used files across multiple applications. First introduced as part of the archaic Dbase language, which later went through multiple versions before finally becoming xBase, the dbf extension has become somewhat of a standard for most programs that compile and structure data into specific ‘quantas’. Some of the commonly used programs that generate dbf files as the means to store data are FoxPro, Visual FoxPro, dBase (and it’s various versions), many popular games, and interactive programs such as Dragon Naturally Speak. While most programs that use .DBF files never require the user to directly interact with the file itself, some of them, especially those targeted at developers, need constant interaction with the database file. As such, losing data stored in a .DBF file can have severe consequences leading to loss of productivity, and many times hours of work. Corruption of DBF files is not very common. However, given the number of times a give file needs to be loaded and unloaded in a developmental environment. Since most errors occur during the process of saving and loading, there are a few steps you can take to prevent such damage. There are basically…

Benefits of Disaster Recovery As a Service
RecoverySoft / October 16, 2018

In any business, especially in an IT firm, data is one of the key elements used in running daily operations. There are several ways in which a firm can store and protect its data. In the past, disaster preparation would often require IT staff to travel to off-premise data centers and / or copy corporate data onto tapes. However, advances in technology and computing platforms have enabled the creation of better and more scalable data storage mechanisms. These have paved the way for complete Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) solutions that can be used instead of internal IT teams. When data is broken or hacked into, uncontrollable losses will occur. To prevent this, many companies opt to have in place disaster response measures and even dedicated teams for managing such situations. Today, you'll find two main categories of computing: cloud computing and hardware server-based computing. This includes the use of DRaaS or traditional backup methods to protect and store data. With current technology, DRaaS offers several advantages over traditional backup and disaster recovery methods. DRaaS is quite reliable and helps address many challenges, including mobility, portability and high performance, among other features. Traditional disaster recovery does not offer the…

Combating Risks of Permanent Data Loss During Hard Drive Failures
RecoverySoft / October 15, 2018

If you happen to have your hard disk drive fail at some point, you will be most likely in a panic-stricken situation, asking yourself how do I fix it. It is an arduous job for a rookie to dive into the problem and analyze the culprits. In reality, hard disk drive failures are not easy to fix and make you lose your valuable data. The more you fiddle with your drive, the more you ruin the chances of a successful recovery. Any non-professional attempt at recovery can cause irreparable data loss. There are many contributing factors to a hard disk failure. Any mechanical device is subject to wear and tear with time. Hard drives are mechanical devices vulnerable to circuitry and mechanical failures. This remains a fact even if you are extra vigilant and keep a close eye on your hard drive. The firmware embedded in your drive also has a good chance of being shorted out by a power surge. Additionally, the read / write heads that move above the platter may get misaligned due to a drop, improper handling of the device, or more. Hard drive failures can manifest in different forms and each failure is followed by…

What Happens To A File Once You Hit Delete
RecoverySoft / October 12, 2018

If you chose not to tinker around with your Windows operating system, then the file automatically goes in the Recycle Bin. If you ever decide you still need the file, you can simply search through the trash (a funny concept Microsoft makes us go through) and you'll find your deleted file intact and easily recoverable. However, if you disable the Recycle Bin, things will go slightly different. Most of us consider deleting a file permanent. After all, you can not see it in the directory structure so it's definitely not there. Unfortunately (or well, fortunately, depending on how you look at the situation) when it comes to computers, seeing is not necessarily a promise for believing. A file does not get permanently destroyed and eradicated from your memory by simply deleting it from the directory structure. Instead, it is kept safe in a free memory area, stored in case you change your mind and need your file back. What gets deleted is the link pointing towards the file, so if you would compare a file to a book page, deleting the file does not tear the page out of the book, but rather deletes the page's index from the table…

How to Retrieve Deleted Files Quickly
RecoverySoft / October 7, 2018

Have you ever deleted something and then instantly knew it was a mistake? Did you know that it is possible to retrieve deleted files? Many people already know that the first stop for a file is in the recycle bin. Maybe you did not know this, but it is very simple to locate your recycle bin and retrieve deleted files from it with a few clicks of your mouse. You simply need to minimize all open windows and programs so your desktop is visible. Now look for the recycle bin icon. Just double click on the icon for recycle bin. It will open, showing you all of your deleted files inside. Looking for your file, highlight it and right click it. You will then see a selection list of four separate choices. If you select "restore", this will move your file back to its previous location. You can still retrieve deleted files that are not in the recycle bin anymore; however, this is a little bit more involved. Once a file is deleted from the bin, the operating system puts it back into free space on your hard drive. It does this by stripping all file extensions and then allocating…

RecoverySoft / October 4, 2018

One of the most frightening things that can happen to a person is to lose the data off of their hard drive. Many of us store personal and business information on our computers. The thought of losing data due to a crashed or failed hard drive or perhaps a breach of data security sends chills down the spine of every grown man and woman. Once you except that you did not back up your data you need begin the data recovery process. What exactly are your data recovery options once your hard drive crashes?

The next step is to allow a hard disk recovery company to restore your pertinent files. Contact a reputable company immediately. There are a few companies who come right to your home, but at-home data recovery computer services charge more. Certain computer files, such as DWG files (a complex graphics file format), require a specialist in order to be recovered. If there is damage to the hard drive you may not be able to…
