Understanding File Shredding and the Wipe Disk Process
RecoverySoft / June 18, 2018

File shredding, which is also referred to as file wiping or as wipe disk, is a process that involves securely deleting a computer file. Through file shredding, the information that was saved on the file cannot be retrieved by any means. There are a couple methods you can use to shred a file. One of these methods is to use special file shredder software, while the other method is to write a “secure delete” demand. If you simply write a “delete” command, the saved information can be retrieved with the right software and computer skills. This is because it is considered a waste of resources to completely delete a file. Therefore, when a file is deleted within an operating system, the space previously occupied by the saved information will simply be marked as a available and the file is removed from the directory. The actual contents, however, remain on the disk. This also makes it possible for files that have been deleted to be restored and recovered. This can easily be accomplished with the “undelete” command. In order to conduct file shredding, the file must actually be overwritten several times. As such, a file that has undergone defragmentation cannot be…

RAID Data Recovery – How It Works
RecoverySoft / May 23, 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…

Healing Through Recovery
RecoverySoft / March 31, 2018

I often wonder if I would ever be able to forgive my wife for her actions while she was actively drinking. I could not conceive ever trusting her again – not after the barrage of lies and deception that goes along with active alcoholism. How could she do this to our family? To her children? To me !? My wife was in and out of recovery programs with limited success. I would push, she would go – relapse. Repeat cycle. My wife finally hit bottom on our son's birthday – she was unconscious when I called the ambulance and was in the ICU for 3 days. I had hit my bottom as well – and filed for divorce. I did not think I could have gotten the damage. My wife entered an in-patient program, without my help, and left a new person – she had connected with her Higher Power and turned over her will and her life. She had finally come to believe that she was an alcoholic, no better no worse, an alcoholic. It was during the early stages of my wife's recovery that I realized I needed help as well. I could not understand how my wife…
