Best Methods Of Data Destruction On Computer Hard Disk Drives
RecoverySoft / July 21, 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…

Vasectomy Recovery
RecoverySoft / July 21, 2018

Whether you have a standard vasectomy or a no scalpel vasectomy there will be a period of recovery. Granted a scalpel one has a longer recovery time and a little more discomfort than a no scalpel vasectomy, but there is still recovery time. The doctor will give you a set of instructions for what to do following your vasectomy and it is this that I would like to discuss. The mystery is actually a lot worse than the reality so brace yourself. Below is a typical list of things to do when recovering from a vasectomy. Your doctor may give you a slightly different list but the idea will be the same. 1. The doctor will tell you to stay off of your feet for a few days following the vasectomy procedure. For those of you that work from home, here is where you will benefit. You will just be asked to sit back on the couch and put your feet up. 2. To take the edge off of your vasectomy the doctor will prescribe you pain relievers and ask you to take them as needed. Trust me when you need one go ahead and take one. Nobody will have…

Benefits of Disaster Recovery As a Service
RecoverySoft / July 21, 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…

iSCSI Software
RecoverySoft / July 11, 2018

iSCSI software is the type of software used in network storage where iSCSI protocol is used. The basic storage network which deploys iSCSI is storage area network (SAN). iSCSI software enables the devices to become connected to the network, share storage space and have access to the data stored on storage servers. There can be two sets of devices which are in the network. The first are iSCSI initiators – the appliances which send SCSI commands and initiate the contact. The other are iSCSI targets – the devices which receive the commands sent by the iSCSI initiator. Therefore, depending on the status of the device, it will require special iSCSI software – for initiators, for targets or both, since one device can sometimes perform both roles. In the case of iSCSI software for initiators we can have the system initiator. It is a special service running in the operation system. Windows Vista and Windows 2008 are already equipped with iSCSI software for initiator, you only have to select it. In Windows XP and Windows 2003 you can download iSCSI initiator from Microsoft pages and install it. As far as targets are concerned there are also two possibilities. Many of the…
