SEARCH Function and FIND Function in Microsoft Excel
RecoverySoft / August 14, 2018

There are two very similar functions in Excel to look for data inside of cells matching parameters that you dictate: SEARCH and FIND. There are so similar, in fact, that one wonders why have two separate functions that perform virtually the identical results and are identical in the construct of the formula. This article will discuss he one, basic difference. SEARCH Introduction The SEARCH function is a way to find a character or string within another cell, and it will return the value associated with the starting place. In other words, if you are trying to figure out where a character is within the cell that contains a word, sentence or other type of information, you could use the SEARCH function. The format for this function is: =SEARCH(“find_text”,”within_text”,start_num). If, for example, the word “alphabet” was in cell C2, and your model needed the location of the letter “a” in that cell, you would use the formula =SEARCH(“a”,C2,1), and the result would be 1. To continue this simplistic example, if you were seeking the location of “b” in the word, the formula would be =SEARCH(“b”,C2,1), and the result would be 6. You can also use search on strings of characters. If,…

Data Recovery Services – Be Wary of Cheap Prices
RecoverySoft / August 14, 2018

Data recovery is a specialized, complicated process. Proper hard drive recovery can require manipulation of data at the sector level, transplantation of internal components and various other procedures. These techniques are very involved and require not only talented, knowledgeable technicians, but also an extensive inventory of disk drives to use for parts when necessary and clean facilities to conduct the work. Unfortunately these factors mean that, in most cases, recovery services are quite expensive. Technician training, hard drive inventories and special equipment all come with a cost. If you search for disk recovery services, you will likely find several smaller companies that offer hard disk data recovery for a fraction of the prices typically quoted by larger, more experienced organizations. These companies often operate from small offices or, in some cases, private homes. They do not possess clean room facilities, large disk drive inventories or many other pieces of equipment necessary to successfully complete most hard drive recovery cases. When you take into account all of the training, parts and facilities necessary, you can see how it is impossible for a company to charge $ 200 for a hard drive recovery and not operate at a loss. What these companies…

Pros and Cons of Hand Strength Grip Tests For Rock Climbers
RecoverySoft / August 13, 2018

Typically, hand strength is tested using a piece of equipment called a hand dynamometer. There are numerous styles and types of dynamometers but they are all designed basically the same. The trigger of the device is squeezed with maximum effort and held for five seconds. Results are determined from the best of several tests after allowing a minimum of at least 15 seconds recovery time between each attempt. Improvement is measured by comparing results of previous test to current tests. Assuming that ongoing training is practised between tests, improvements should register on the dynamometer. The validity of test results obtained using dynamometers is sometimes questioned as there are various conditions that can affect the outcome. Here is a brief rundown of the pros and cons of using this type of hand grip strength test. Pros The test is very simple and easy to administer for both right and left handed individuals. The dynamometer is a widely used and accepted strength testing device so there is a concise and consistent score chart. Cons Users must be sure to recalibrate the dynamometer as necessary to ensure accurate results. Rest periods between tests must always be the same to ensure accuracy. Techniques and…

Benefits of Disaster Recovery As a Service
RecoverySoft / August 10, 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…

The Importance of a Backup Recovery System
RecoverySoft / July 27, 2018

When a business has serious computer issues, it can result in a serious loss of money and time, unless you have a backup recovery system. Computers have become the core instrument for storing business data. If the computer system that is being used breaks down, then that business can come to a virtual standstill. This is why it is important for a system to be in place to recover deleted files. No one likes having to recreate information and work that has been previously done. Unfortunately, unless a recovery method is implemented, most times this is what has to happen. In the event that information has been deleted and there is no backup recovery system in place, there may be other options.

The Zen of Recovery
RecoverySoft / July 22, 2018

Addiction. It is probably the most horrific word I can think of in the English language. It is the thing that altered my entire life and almost rendered a further life impossible for me. I went from a successful writer and editor to a convicted felon within a very short space of time, 24 hours to be exact. That's all it takes, after all, one day, just 24 hours to turn from whatever you once were to someone you no longer know. The addiction itself of course grew and evolved over the course of a few years, but the cataclysm of change took only one day. Officially, I call myself "Lady Lazarus," although the descriptor is not mine. I owe Sylvia Plath for that name because she wrote an awe-inspiring poem of the same title. But, I use that name because technically, I am a woman who came back from the dead, much like Lazarus in the Bible. I was a respected, well-liked, quiet, and by all accounts decent woman when I started ingesting large quantities of Xanax for my anxiety problems. (I had no idea that I had a lot more than "anxiety." In fact, I had a full-blown…
