If you recently experienced data loss on your laptop or computer, you might find yourself in a desperate situation especially if the information that you have just lost was work related or very important for yourself either way.
Thanks to the various data recovery solutions that are available in the form of a variety of softwares or procedures performed by computer specialists, you now have much more possibilities when it comes to salvaging your data.
Data restoring techniques
The ability of recovering data loss does not only depend on the experience of the particular computer expert that offers your services. It mostly depends on the type of damage that your device has just gone through.
Therefore, you will come across two major kinds of data restore techniques consisting in the ones that fix the physical damage of the hardware and the ones that are based on repairing errors that occured at the level of partitions. Continue reading “Data recovery San Jose” »
Each new RAID scheme builds upon the scheme before it and adds in important features which improve performance and resilience. RAID 0 does not provide any additional data loss protection and is for improving read write time by splitting the work load across multiple disks. RAID 1 mirrors the primary disk across secondary disks but provides very little improvement in speed. RAID 1 and higher schemes can survive the failure of a disk in the array without loss of data, though performance suffers. RAID 2 uses bit level striping for speed and introduced error correction improvements with a space intensive parity code to detect and repair errors. RAID 3 uses byte level striping and introduced a dedicated parity disk for more efficient error correction. Continue reading “Save the saves – RAID array” »
As technology progresses as well as humanity’s dependence on it, hard drive recovery is becoming more and more common and imperative as people are beginning to store more and more critical data on hard disks. Of course, as people are becoming well-acquainted with computers, they feel confident that they can fix whatever problem there is with their hard drives. In fact, attempting data recovery without the help of a professional is not recommended to most people as they don’t have the proper knowledge or tools to correctly complete the task.

Today nearly everyone depends on a computer to get things done and store the information needed to get those things done. Businesses large and small store data of all types on their desktop computers and servers. Unfortunately computers currently depend on components with moving parts, moving parts than can and do fail, often at the most inopportune times. The other, even more unfortunate truth, is that most people and businesses do not back up their files or have a plan for data recovery should a disaster occur.
The good news is that is it not difficult to set up and maintain a data recovery plan. The best plan for recovering lost data is a multi-layered approach that includes at least one form of external media data storage. Since even a drive meant for back up purposes can fail, backing up files to a compact disk or thumb drive is a smart idea. Continue reading “Data rescue” »
Data is stored in different kinds of places depending on the amount of data you are storing and the kind of work that you are conducting on regular basis. You can store data in hard disks, magnetic disks, tapes, CDs and DVDs and floppy disks as well. There are many times however, when due to some kind of accident the data which has been stored gets damaged and the need to find ways of getting this data recovered arises.
Data recovery can be something as simple as cleaning a CD or DVD properly to something very complex as trying to get a hard drive to function properly once again. However, the job of hard drive recovery may perhaps be give to a professional that has the experience to make sure that no damage is done to the data which is inaccessible at the moment.

There are many steps to take in order to recover files on a computer. There are multiple things that will cause the corruption of files, and the mose sensible thing to do is to fix these problems as soon as possible. There are some things that the computer user can use to speed up the process, such as a self-starting CD or DVD. These are quite effective for disk repair because the user can boot their PC and for when Windows is unable to start up. Many CD’s and diskettes are able to be installed by downloading them into the hard-drive.
Each diskette comes with its own instruction’s manual that will serve as a compass for server recovery. Most of these CD’s are easy to use and doesn’t require a high level of technical skills. At the same time, it does help those who are professional users. Continue reading “Disk Repair” »
There are many people whose lives are centered completely on their personal computers. For this reason, many individuals are starting to put a together a backup plan should anything happen to their PC. Individuals are now starting to evaluate their data recovery needs.
The importance of a data recovery plan
It happens all of the time. A PC that has worked perfectly for many months suddenly fails to start. Applications fail to start up and function properly. Data gets corrupted and the files become no longer accessible. Data recovery plans become essential in scenarios like these. Every person with a PC needs to put together a data recovery plan. Continue reading “Data recovery plan” »
Free data recovery software
There is nothing as frustrating as deleting a file accidently, or having it disappear when the server has crashed. There are some free programs to be found online.
Recuva is an information recovery program that is freeware. Recuva can recover files that have been permanently deleted and is considered free space by the operating system. The program can be used to recover file from flash drives, or memory cards. Recuva will run on windows 7, xp, vista, 2003 and 2000. The program interface is available in several different languages, is simple to use by answering questions about what kind of files are being recovered and where the files can be found on the hard drive. For a free program it does the job of the pricier ones. Continue reading “Recuva – data recovery ..” »
RAID provides data protection for your server
RAID, an acronym for redundant array of independent (or inexpensive) disks. It refers to a collection of hard disks that are connected in such a manner that provides redundancy, so if one drive fails, data is not lost. Different types of RAID are classified by numbers. The most commonly implemented RAID classes are 0, 1, 5 and 6.
RAID relies on disk striping, parity and in some cases, mirroring, to provide protection against data loss. Disk striping refers to data being placed across multiple disks in a sequential manner. Parity refers to extra data that is stored to assist with protecting and restoring data. Disk mirroring involves multiple disks that contain exactly the same data. RAID5 and RAID6 both involve disk striping and parity. Neither uses disk mirroring. Continue reading “Raid5 vs. RAID6” »
