SEARCH Function and FIND Function in Microsoft Excel
RecoverySoft / August 20, 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,…

How To Permanently Delete Files?
RecoverySoft / August 15, 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…

RecoverySoft / August 12, 2018

While working with a mailbox on Exchange server does make it very convenient to switch between the offline and online modes, there are times when the account from the server gets removed by mistake or by the administrator as a security precaution. This article will illustrate how converting OST files into PST files might be the only way of retrieving data. Very often at corporate workplaces, employees are given an email account on a Microsoft Exchange server. This no doubt facilitates communication and collaboration at the workplace but also allows the user to work on emails by making an offline copy in Offline Storage files or OST files. At times, administrators take the extreme step of removing the account when they consider a security threat. Also, when employees are leaving the current place of employment, they may want to take the mail messages, contact lists and calendar with them when they move. They are under the impression that by taking a copy of the OST files with them they have all the information they need and end up deleting the account associated with these files. This ends up orphaning the OST files that can only be opened using the Exchange…

RecoverySoft / August 8, 2018

There are only two ways to regain access to your PC if you've forgotten your Windows Administrator password. The first is to reinstall Windows and totally wipe everything from your computer … and the second is to use a "password reset" program that will reset the password for you. Here's what to do: Method 1 – Reinstall Windows – If you've got nothing to lose from your computer, and have the knowledge to do it, you may wish to reinstall Windows to gain access to your PC again.

If you do not understand how to do it, then you need to talk to a computer technician.

Using a TENS Machine to Fight the Negative Feelings of Depression
RecoverySoft / August 4, 2018

First of all, I’m not a doctor or therapist. I just have spent most of my life learning from them, to undo the effects of major depression that I’ve had from childhood. If you suffer from depression, first talk to your medical professional to see what approach is best for you. That is what I’ve done, but I add to what I’ve learned by trying a few other things on my own. Don’t do anything to yourself that is potentially self-injurious, it pays to research any new technique or approach thoroughly, just to be safe. Whatever works for me may not work for you, we all have our own ways of responding to different treatments. I just know that not all my recovery has come from what was learned at the doctor’s office. Being exceptionally strong-willed, my mission has mainly been to boost self-esteem, and fight those inner feelings of sadness that never go away (effects of depression.) Here are some ways that have helped me live a productive and successful life, despite mental challenges. Six months ago, it was necessary for me to go for physical therapy for a slipped disk in my back. The therapist hooked me up…
