Corrupted DBF Files – How To Prevent And Repair Dbase Corruption
RecoverySoft / September 17, 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.

RecoverySoft / July 22, 2018

After servicing you for years on end without any complains or anything, your computer is now due for a retirement. Of course, the decision still rests on you as the rightful owner of the electronic device. However, if you feel that you are ready to let go and replace, sell or donate your good ol 'trusted machine, you should note that before it leaves your possession, everything on its hard drive should be totally eradicated and erased. This would prevent other people from accessing your private information and use them for identity theft activities. Before you unplug your computer for the very last time, you will manually delete all your files that are saved in the drive. Another option would be to perform a format on all the drives that are built into your computer. What you should remember though is the fact that although you've already deleted the file through manual deletion or formatting, a computer expert, hacker or identity theft criminal may still be able to recover these files which can then put you and your family in a very compromising situation. Here's a list of the files that you should remove before you sell, donate or dispose…

RecoverySoft / June 6, 2018

To permanently delete a file it is not enough to press delete or to empty the recycle bin. Operating systems like Windows or Mac OS delete the file by marking it invisible and by releasing the disk space it was using. In fact, it is impossible to delete the file, you can only overwrite it with some other data. This basic principle of computer file system is used to undelete files. If we have, for example, accidentally deleted some file, we can recover it by using some undelete tool. If the data was not overwritten we can get the original file back as it was prior to deletion. For many computer users this behavior of files is not problematic. We don’t care what happens with the files after they are deleted. But there are cases when we care or at least we should care. When we would like to dump the old computer or donate it to somebody we don’t want to leave all the files on the disk. Deleting them or even formatting the disk does not solve the problem. With simple recovery tools it is possible to recover formatted partitions and deleted files. This is a problem because…
