RAID Data Recovery – How It Works
RecoverySoft / June 9, 2018

RAID data recovery is probably one of the most complex processes any data recovery firm can perform. More often than not, the problems are compounded by the actions of the client prior to sending the drives in for recovery. Many users feel that it is important to try and recover the data themselves or repair the array through various system utilities, and this may be fine if the data is not critical. However, it has been our experience that when you have a RAID failure that has resulted in substantial data loss, more often than not, somebody’s job is on the line if that data is not recovered. The biggest piece of advise this article can provide in the event of a RAID failure: LEAVE IT ALONE. IT professionals have a lot of pressure placed on them when a catastrophic system failure occurs. It is their job to make sure that all systems are up and running. Many times, out of panic, troubleshooting processes are initiated in order to correct the problem. Often times these processes only make a bad situation even worse, and in many instances they can render the data unrecoverable. Let’s keep in mind what this data…

Economic Recovery is Our Responsibility
RecoverySoft / June 2, 2018

Today you can spark an economic revolution. Are you up for the challenge? It has been said that environment is a direct reflection of the people in it. If you want to change the environment, just change the people. Shouldn’t this apply to our economic situation as well? So how do we change the local economy? By changing the way the people interact and do business. When each of us becomes more focused on helping our friends, neighbors, and local businesses, everyone will experience an economic revival and it starts by referring friends and acquaintances to people we know. And best of all, it’s not a new skill to learn. You’ve already referred people to others before. You’ve referred a movie or restaurant to a co-worker, a book to a friend, or simply given directions to a stranger in your town. Everyone is networking all the time, whether for business, charity or friendship, networking is a part of all our lives. Businesses large and small rely on networking to launch new products, find new customers, and fill open staff positions. Networking is the most cost-effective means to solve problems in your business. It has long been known that a referred…

16 Most Inspiring Famous Failures
RecoverySoft / May 19, 2018

To succeed in business or life, I came to realize that we must continually take remedial actions. Putting myself on the line day after day can be extremely draining, especially when things do not work out as I desired. Hence, each time I face a disappointing event or undesirable outcome, I NEVER FORGET these famous failures: 1. Bill Gates, founder and chairman of Microsoft, has literally changed the work culture of the world in the 21st century, by simplifying the way computer is being used. He happens to be the world’s richest man for the last one decade. However, in the 70’s before starting out, he was a Harvard University dropout. The most ironic part is that, he started a software company (that was soon to become Microsoft) by purchasing the software technology from “someone” for only $US50 back then. 2. Abraham Lincoln, received no more than 5 years of formal education throughout his lifetime. When he grew up, he joined politics and had 12 major failures before he was elected the 16th President of the United States of America. 3. Isaac Newton was the greatest English mathematician of his generation. His work on optics and gravitation made him one…

T-Shirts – Common Terms Explained
RecoverySoft / May 15, 2018

T-shirt manufacturers use many terms to describe their products. The terms are not always consistent and it helps to have a reference guide. The following is the official Green Man T-Shirts Guide to understanding t-shirt terms: 20s, 20/1, 20s single: Unit of measurement that defines the fineness of cotton thread. A standard spool of single-ply cotton thread is comprised of 840 yards of cotton thread. If it takes 20 spools to weigh one pound, then the thread on those spools is referred to as 20s cotton, or 20/1. If 30 spools weigh one pound, then the thread on those spools is referred to as 30s cotton thread, or 30/1. If it takes 40 spools to weigh one pound, then the thread on those spools is referred to as 40s cotton, or 40/1. The higher number means a finer thread, and thus a finer, softer fabric is created. T-shirts made of 30s and 40s are softer, finer, and have better drape than t-shirts made of 20s. The terms are used many ways, but it’s the number that counts; “20s,” “20/1,” and “20 singles” are the same. Threads can be twisted together into thicker strands. If two 20/1 cotton threads were twisted…

When Data Recovery Becomes Impossible
RecoverySoft / May 13, 2018

Data Recovery Can Sometimes Becomes Unfeasible And Unable To Realize: If you have a hard drive that has crashed, the most important thing you can do is contact a data recovery professional immediately. Make sure you aren’t being charged evaluation fees if you have a standard IDE hard drive. Most companies only charge evaluation fees for complex RAID and network server drives. It is important to do your homework, call and talk with the companies. When you find one that you feel comfortable with, give them a chance. Your hardest job, may be finding data recovery firms that actually have someone available to answer the phones. Ask questions and be sure to have the following information available: Size of the drive, Operating system (i.e. Windows 98, Windows XP, etc.), Situation of failure (what happened just before the drive stopped working), is the drive recognized by the computer or not. Lost Data can be recovered: Whether you own your own business or work for someone that does you’ll find that data protection is one of the smartest and safest approaches you can take to ensure the profitability and livelihood of your business. When dealing with data recovery and protection it is…
