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…

How To Permanently Delete Files?
RecoverySoft / August 3, 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…

Tutorials
RecoverySoft / August 2, 2018

Is it a trend? Is it the latest fashion on how things should be made? What are tutorials? You probably heard about them, you probably even used them, but never thought of them as such. Exaggerating of course, we could say even a food recipe is a tutorial. In common language a tutorial is something that teaches you how to do something, explaining all the steps of the process to you. In educational terms, a tutorial is a class made up of few students, in which a professor provides individual attention and information to them. You must remember at school all those get together with other colleagues in which were you supposed to learn all sorts of things? Yes, that are tutorials. They can be groups from one or up to 20 students that supplement the information provided in class with the purpose of obtaining better information about something. But lets be serious, nowadays this kind of tutorials are rather out of fashion. Since we all live in the internet and communication age, we can easily talk about a new kind of tutorials. Yes, the internet ones. They are documents or softwares, or any other media created for instructional purposes…

Hair transplant recovery is critical to the success of the operation. Hair transplant requires a lot of time in order to heal properly.

How to Spy on a Computer Without Anyone Knowing
RecoverySoft / June 26, 2018

If you need to know how to spy on a computer, I'll tell you right now that it's with software. But not all are created equal … some can spy on certain activities, but not everything. What's more is that most do not do so invisibly – and this is the key thing here. Invisibility and stealth are paramount to the success of monitoring computer activities no matter the reasons. Why? For example, this is not how to spy on a computer; If you're trying to keep an eye on your kid while he's online to make sure he does not go off on some crazy bestiality porn site, it would do nothing if there's some blinking fireball of an icon pulsating in the system task bar. He'll clearly know he's being watched, and go off to a friend's house to check out some porn on his friend's computer. Obviously, that is not how to spy on a computer at all. In order to do so effectively, you absolutely positively need stealth. You need to be invisible, or it just is not happening, period. For this reason, when you seek out some software to monitor computer activities, it's got to…

Friends and Money: Debt or Relationship Recovery?
RecoverySoft / June 22, 2018

We’ve all heard it before. You shouldn’t mix business with friends or pleasure, but in most cases it’s much easier to say than actually do. We usually enter into these agreements with the hope that the business will go to plan and the friendship will be stronger for it. Despite our best intentions, sometimes it doesn’t always go to plan. So what happens when the project ends and the tax invoice have been issued, but months roll by without a payment. All of a sudden, you’re in the unfortunate situation where you have to constantly, month after month, ask your friend for payment but they are now avoiding you.
