Top Five Cheap Data Recovery Software That You Could Get Now

hddrpThere is a lot of data recovery software on the market that may or may not benefit your situation if you have deleted your files for any reason or if they got deleted by accident and you want them back. On the other hand is a lot of cheap data recovery software that can actually help you recover your files and save you a lot of money in doing so.

The first that is considered the best cheap data recovery software on the market for 2015 is STELLAR PHOENIX. This software maintains top marks with its home version. It can give very good results when it comes to normal deletes or accidental formatting.

Another good software that is also cheap is Data Rescue PC; this software is a very good one and has very minor limitations such as limits to the total number of recovered files and the way it sorts them.

Then comes some software of higher value but a lower overall rating, which are also very good to recover data. These include GetDataBack, Ontrack EasyRecovery.

Finally R-Studio is worth a mention, and might be considered the second best after STELLAR PHOENIX, except for its exceedingly high price.

Is External Hard Drive Repair Even Possible?

A lot of people confuse hard drive damage with hard drive destruction. Hard drive damage happens everyday and can be fixed usually by using the right tools and software to retrieve the lost data. All that is needed to be done is to perform an external hard drive repair using software or to hire an external hard drive repair specialist that will hopefully bring back all your data intact. The matter of retrieving data is nonnegotiable; the problem lies in how much of the data is safe and how much is corrupted.

Click here for a leading hard drive repair and data recovery service.

Some software nowadays makes any external hard drive repair a simple operation and some of these tools are even free to try. But you will have to buy these products if you want to get more advanced features. Using these tools, data recovery has never been easier. After using such tools, all what is left is to pray that all of your  data is safe and that your file system can be restored correctly. Of course with lost structure, data can never be retrieved correctly nor can it be fixed with any software.

What Can Cause Hard Drive Failures

Everything we do might lead to hard disk failures; sometimes even without us knowing. This is why if your company needs to save on hard drive recovery costs. Some hard drive failures might be caused by accidents at work (they can be prevented). When transferring a computer from one department to another, a computer may be dropped. Then, the hard drive is damaged in the process.

The way a worker or a person carries themselves around computers can also increase the potential for data loss. You need to understand that drinking beverages around a laptop is not advised. Sometimes, you can easily short circuit the motherboard and destroy the hard drive in case of a spillage. Always keep your beverages at a safe distance from the laptop.

As a company, make sure that your employees are well trained to handle their assigned computers. Companies with incompetent workers are likely to raise their overall hard drive recovery costs. Many of these workers might visit websites or download files that have viruses. A hard disk failure is not always about the hardware; there is also the software part of failure. Viruses are a leading cause of file loss, and they must be avoided if at all possible.

Cell Towers Must Be Ready For Anything

celltWind-speed requirements are not the only thing that needs to be considered before disaster strikes. The type of tower used is another factor in a site’s ability to survive. About a year ago, a tornado ripped through Dunwoody, GA, an affluent community 14 miles north of Atlanta, snapping trees and scattering debris. Verizon’s site, which was in Dunwoody and at the heart of the tornado, managed to remain standing.

Suzanne Hale, Verizon senior real estate representative, said the aerodynamics of the tower might be part of the reason it didn’t go down. The shorter monopole, rather than a lattice or guyed tower, may have saved the tower from destruction. A monopole’s tubular design and fewer connecting pieces make it less vulnerable to tornadoes.

With self-support towers, the lattice is often flat and actually can aid a tornado in putting pressure on the tower. A guyed tower depends chiefly on supports to keep it upright. Once a support snaps, the intense torque of a twisting wind often will create a house-of-cards effect. Read More >>

Canada’s Disasters Have Always Been About Ice

cdiceEach year, when spring comes, old green ice from the great polar cap, icy waste from the Arctic rivers, icebergs calved in Greenland, and rafters of ice from north of Russia and the Hebrides are nudged by the tides into a wheeling mass covering 20,000 square miles, a monstrous afterbirth of winter that drifts down the east coast of Canada past Newfoundland to pass into chill fogs off the Maritimes and the New England coast. Each spring, the hair seals keep a primal rendezvous with the ice. They have come south to whelp in February near the Strait of Belle Isle; now, before they start to migrate north with their young they seek out the ice field and travel with it for a few weeks while their young gain strength and get ready to shed their soft puppy fur. And each spring, the sealers put out from Newfoundland to find the seals and kill the babies for their pelts.

That year, 1914, the 20 ships of the sealing fleet sailed early in March. Hedley Payne, a dark, wiry lad from Wesleyville who had wangled his very first berth to the ice, walked for two days to the Gambo railway station to catch the sealers’ car into the capital in time to sign on. He had just turned 18. With him was his best friend, Job Easton, 19. In St. John’s, they bought their gear on credit at Harvey’s and then went to take a look at their ship, the Newfoundland, 568 tons. She was the largest of the 11 old wooden walls in the fleet and when Payne saw her he thought she must be the biggest ship in the world. In command was Read More >>

Earthquakes Have Hit India Hard

ehhihAt about 8:30 a.m. on January 26, 15-year-old Kunal Doshi was preparing to take a bath when a rumbling began. In minutes, his house crashed down around him. Rubble trapped the naked Kunal up to his neck, with a concrete pillar crushing his right leg. A heavy door teetered inches above the boy’s head. A massive earthquake had leveled Kunal’s city and much of the state of Gujarat.

Kunal’s 18-year-old sister, Rachana, who was rescued from the ruins several hours after the quake, found her trapped brother four days later. “Hold on,” she called to him. “Help is coming.” Kunal, a Hindu, prayed.

But when rescuers arrived on the scene, they faced a dilemma. If they removed the pillar that was crushing Kunal’s leg, tons of broken concrete would fall and kill him. They decided his leg would have to be amputated on the spot. But if the doctors didn’t cut off the leg quickly, the boy would bleed to death.

To ease Kunal’s pain, a doctor gave him a painkiller. An Indian army surgeon, Lt. Col. Prem Singh Bhandari, crawled into the work space that rescuers had dug around the boy. The doctor later described the space as “a cave about 2 feet by 2 1/2 feet.” Bhandari asked for a large knife, “and in one go,” the surgeon said, “I just cut the skin and all the soft tissues.” Bhandari’s only problem, he said, was cutting through the bone, since he didn’t have enough room to move his hands freely. The surgeon used a hammer and chisel to cut through about 70 percent of the bone and had rescuers pull the boy up. Then Bhandari used a carpenter’s saw to finish the job. Rescuers raced Kunal to a makeshift hospital set up by the Red Cross, as the quake had destroyed most Read More >>
