RecoverySoft / October 20, 2018

Your worst nightmare just became a horrifying reality. You keep hearing that little voice in your head mockingly shout “you should have backed that stuff up” The voice keeps echoing throughout your head as you perform a quick inventory all of the important information that you just lost…..your client database, a years worth of e-mail, your entire inventory database, even your family photos. Even worse, you’ve got a deposition in two-weeks and key information needed to help win the case were also lost. You quickly call a service technician and have them come over to check the computer out, only to hear the worst news of all….your data has been lost. When a hard drive crashes, it’s too late to worry about what you “should have done.” Today data recovery is a multi-million dollar industry. The number of data recovery firms out there seems to exceed the number of fast food restaurants for the entire planet. These companies specialize in helping their clients retrieve data on anything from hard drives to flash-roms. In the following report, we will discuss what data recovery really is; the different types, the costs, and what you can realistically expect when it comes to getting…

Easy Guide to RAID Recovery
RecoverySoft / October 20, 2018

What is RAID RECOVERY? RAID stands for Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks. It is a method of combining several hard drives into one unit. This method offers fault tolerance (the ability of a system to continue to perform functions even when one or more hard disk drives have failed) and higher protection against data loss than a single hard drive. Why do I need RAID RECOVERY? RAID provides real-time data recovery when a hard drive fails, increasing system uptime and network availability while protecting against loss of data. Another advantage of the system is that multiple disks working together increase overall system performance. Any individual or company could benefit from having a RAID RECOVERY system in place. Different Levels There are several different levels of RAID available. Each level offers various advantages in terms of data availability, cost and performance. Your best bet is to assess your needs in order to determine which level works best for you. The most popular RAID systems are the following: RAID 0 – Data striping (no data protection). The benefit of this system is that it offers the highest performance. RAID 1. Disk Mirroring (provides data protection by duplicating all data from a primary…

CSV vs XML vs JSON – Which is the Best Response Data Format?
RecoverySoft / October 19, 2018

Whether you are building a thin client (web application) or thick client (client-server application) at some point you are probably making requests to a web server and need a good data format for responses. As of today, there are three major data formats being used to transmit data from a web server to a client: CSV, XML, and JSON. In order to develop an application with a solid architecture, it’s a good idea to understand the differences between each format and know when to use them. The purpose of this post is to define each data format, lay out the pros and cons for each, and discover which situations work best with each format. CSV CSV stands for “comma separated values”. As the name implies, this data format is basically a list of elements separated by commas. Let’s say that your response is sending back a list of people in a particular family. The format would look like this: Eric,Andrea,Kusco Pros – This format is the most compact of all three formats. Generally speaking, CSV formats are about half the size of XML and JSON formats. This is the major advantage of CSV because it can help reduce bandwidth Cons…

How to Select the Best Backup Software
RecoverySoft / September 3, 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…

RecoverySoft / July 14, 2018

A computer is divided into software and hardware, so the computer repair tools are also separated into the two main categories. When the hardware needs to be repaired, it usually involves cable cutters, multi-meters, thermal cooling paste, screwdrivers, canned air, and three-pronged parts grabbers. While, if you are concerned about software reparation, you may need one of these tools including password recovery programs, virus scanners and disk defragmenter, memory checking programs, or hard drive diagnostics. Each computer repair tools has its own function that is used to improve the computer's performance. For example, the multi meters are used to check the condition of Ethernet and power cables. By checking these tools, you can determine it needs to be replaced or not. Even it is only a dust, but it can cause your computer functions at peak efficiency.

Towing Services For Underwater Recovery
RecoverySoft / June 14, 2018

One of the worst things that could possibly happen to your car is for it to end up in a pond or lake. Usually when you think of a car being in the water, you think of movies that you have seen, and you figure the car is unrecoverable at this point. Most people can not imagine how difficult it can be to get a car that is submerged underwater back onto dry land, but there are actually companies that specialize in towing cars out of sticky, or in this case, wet situations. Obviously if your car finds itself fully underwater, the damage is more than likely going to be irreversible. With that being said, that does not mean the car stays submerged underwater. You have to find a towing company that has the knowledge and machinery to get your car out from underwater. You may be able to salvage parts from the car despite the accident, or maybe personal personalizations are in the car as it sits underwater, and you need to get them out as soon as possible. Another benefit towing companies with this expertise is for insurance companies to use. Most everyone on the road today has…

How to Recover Lost Data
RecoverySoft / May 29, 2018

It's happened unfortunately to many people. You turn on your computer and hear that dreaded click and realize that not only can you not get into windows, you have not made a backup of your precious files. At this point you have a few options. **** The following suggestions are offered as FREE advice and should be taken as such. I am in no way responsible if you destroy your hard drive by using any of these methods. **** 1. Put it in the freezer for 24 hours. SEAL IT IN A BAG TO PROTECT IT FROM MOISTURE. Hard drives are electrical devices and sometimes electrical devices overheat. Getting the drive good and cold and then trying to boot it again might make it function just long enough for you to get those precious wedding pictures. 2. Take the handle end of a screwdriver (while the drive is unplugged) and give it a firm but not hard tap on the center of the top of the drive (not the circuit board.) If you hit it too hard you can permanently destroy the disks. However, if sometimes a firm tap will get the drive spinning again long enough to get your…

Get Positive Buzz: How Image Recovery and Prepared Crisis Management Can Help Save Millions
RecoverySoft / May 11, 2018

When we talk about debacles, mishaps, accidents, crimes, disasters, or fiascos, media strategy and focused crisis concepts should be part of crisis management training – for communications division staff members in any size company. Handling a crisis once it can be very complex. However, when plans are in place beforehand, businesses can rise above any unexpected situation. What's the first thing a communications division should say when answering questions about a media debacle? If the plan is not to make a statement, it will only leave the media to form their hypothetical stories. Having a prepared statement means planning ahead and knowing what you are going to say if there is ever an emergency. When you have a plan of action, it means having the ability to withstand a crisis within minutes. Implementing a media plan in case of a crisis is like putting together a playbook of protocols where you take full responsibility. An important factor for preparedness recovery is that a crisis can hit any company, no matter the size, notoriety, services, or reputation. We saw these types of missteps happen with the food-safety crisis of Chipotle, a communications debacle of Paula Deen, and the emissions "defeat device"…

What Is the Recovery Time for Liposuction?
RecoverySoft / May 7, 2018

Liposuction is a surgical procedure done through tiny incisions to permanently remove any external fat that you may have in problem areas. Typically, the feeling you will have right after liposuction is a sensation of post-workout pain, or the muscle soreness and pain you may feel after extreme exercise. The areas of liposuction will feel sore and numb for several days after your procedure. After a few days, you will probably feel itching, burning, electrical shocks, and similar feelings in the areas of liposuction. This is good, because it means that the nerves supplying your skin are beginning to have less swelling and are starting to heal. After several weeks, you should have normal feelings in your skin in all areas of liposuction. Sometimes you may develop hardened soft tissue areas where you had liposuction. This may occur because you are wearing your post-surgery compression garment incorrectly, or your body may be trying to develop scar tissue in the areas of surgery. Often wearing your garment in a different fashion, or starting to massage that areas that are beginning to get harder, or both, will alleviate any asymmetry and scar tissue that is trying to form. Patients can usually get…
