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…

Benefits of Disaster Recovery As a Service
RecoverySoft / August 10, 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 breached 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 capabilities that…

The Different Types of an Exchange Backup
RecoverySoft / July 19, 2018

If you currently have exchange backup software as well as the server, you should know about some important things about the program. To start with, there are different types of them available and can range from copy to full backup. Also, you will see there's differential and incremental backup. However, the one you decide on can vary and depend on a few things. It can also depend on the type of information you have and want stored. Full backup programs are designed to backup your entire database. All log files as well as all of your databases are backed up and saved. Your data and all of your information are protected and are kept safe from computer crashes or other damage to your computer that would wipe it out. You only have to save your info one time on the backup and it keeps it stored, but you also have access to change what's in it and add info to it as well. Copy backup is similar to the normal backup process, and the only difference is that it will not mark files saved for incremental or differential backup. This simply means that you have the ability to copy any…

Learn Why A Data Center Disaster Recovery Plan is Essential For Your Business
RecoverySoft / April 18, 2018

A data center disaster recovery plan is something you need to consider right now. Unfortunately, it cannot wait until things slow down, when you’ve been able to put enough cash away, or when it is simply more convenient. It doesn’t work that way. Every business needs a data center disaster recovery plan. Without one, you will not be able to recover from a disaster. Businesses that make the mistake of ignoring this advice pay dearly for doing so. These businesses instead focus on what they consider to be “real” problems, like this week’s meetings, proposals, and regular deadlines. While data center disaster recovery plans don’t have fixed time lines, one could become necessary for your company at any time. But if it is not in place before disaster strikes, it will not be possible to recover the data. There is no way to tell when a disaster may strike or when a problem may occur. Maybe a natural disaster will affect your business tonight. Or maybe your servers will fail over the weekend. The need for a data center disaster recovery plan could surface at any time. Yes, the odds are in your favor and you will likely never need…
