Backups need to be saved in the safest location possible. After all, your entire reasoning for creating a backup is to provide a reliable source of your files in case the actual copy of your files gets deleted or accidentally removed. Believe it or not, accidental deletion is very common and that’s when software like REMO Windows recovery, undelete tools, and Mac digital photo recovery come into play. However, you probably don’t want to spend your money on these types of things so it’s better if you invest in backing up your files, rather than recovering them. This way if you accidentally delete them you don’t have to turn to the possibility of recovering them but rather the actuality that you have a copy of that file stored safely in another location. REMO Backup can help you safely backup your files and it’s an excellent choice for your computing needs.
However, deciding where to store your backups can be the most difficult part of the operation. A lot of people buy a second hard drive, install it in their computer and consider the job complete. However, if you are storing critically important information you probably will want to go a step above this. What if your computer became infected by a virus and all attached hard drives developed the symptoms and the information you had stored and backup up on the second drive became corrupted? Suddenly your entire system has suffered from a huge malfunction and you’ve lost everything. Storing backups on external drives but more importantly external servers is a better alternative. You can buy backup servers for your files on the Internet and they’re always reliable.
Recovering files that you’ve lost can be an important task and if not done properly, it can become very detrimental. Making sure that you choose the right software to recover files is extremely important. Some software is going to be better than others and the method in which, they recover files will also be different. One of the most promising features about REMO Recover software is that it doesn’t demand any heavy technical skills from its users. You simply have to follow the instructions that it presents to you on the screen in an interactive and easy to follow interface, and in a flash, the whole disk recovery process is complete.
It works by allowing you to launch the software and instantly be able to recover files that you have either deleted or misplaced and have forgotten about the whereabouts of the files. Many a time virus attacks, malicious content and power surges can corrupt the files stored on your computer. If this is the case, and you can’t open the files, a data recovery software like Remo Recover is going to become essential to your success. Enabling you to search for any lost partitions that you have on your drive and be able to recover files directly from its location is going to save you a lot of time and money. With the Remo Recover utility you can quickly and easily access the drive, let the software analyze the drive for the data you are looking to find, and then proceed with recovering the data into a new safe location.
When a file is created, it has its first bite at existence, an existence which continues until you, in your casual and careless manner, delete it. Deleting the file isn’t the end, though. All you need to do is open up the Recycle Bin on your desktop, select the file and drag it onto the desktop or into an Explorer window to recover it. Or simply double-click to open the Recycle Bin, select the file, and choose Restore from the pop-up menu to restore it to its original folder.
In fact, the file is not moved to the Recycle Bin at all. Instead, the file stays in the same place but its directory entry i.e. the complete path and filename of the file, is removed and placed in a hidden folder called Recycled. (Note: If you have more than one drive in your computer, you’ll have a Recycled folder for each drive.) The file is then renamed. The original name and location of the file are stored in a hidden index file, called INFO2 (or INFO, if you’re using Windows 95), located in the Recycled folder.
It is because of this vey fact, that deleted data recovery is possible, if you are quick in realizing the mistake, and making some swift moves. It is recommended that you make use of REMO Recover (Windows) Basic Edition software for deleted data recovery. The software lets you recover all the deleted data with a few clicks of the mouse.
Every system running on Windows starts to show signs of slowing down after its usage exceeds one year. This is the same even for Windows XP. The wear and tear of the operating system, can be attributed to shutting down and restarting of the system multiple number of times.After performing multiple number of restarts, Windows XP usually loses its, stability. It usually starts with minor errors that pop up on the screen, but gradually it results in a whole system crash. Re-installing is surely a great solution for this problem, but the surety of not losing out data cannot be given.
Most of the data is lost from the All Users folders and the Default User folder, once re-installation of Windows XP is completed. You may also end up losing most of your desktop shortcuts in the process. To recover lost files after reinstall Windows XP, it is advised that you stop using the affected PC, and get yourself, a good data recovery software.
REMO Recover (Windows) Pro Edition software lets you recover lost files after reinstalling Windows XP, with ease. Its easy-to-use interface makes the data recovery process a simple task, even for a novice. The software also lets you create a disk image, and later recover data from the created disk image.
One of the areas where data recovery is most needed is in recovery of digital photos. In fact data recovery software is used more for photo recovery than any other purpose. Anyone who’s ever used a digital camera at some point develops a need to recover deleted photos. As with any situation where one needs to recover deleted files, it is far too simple to accidentally click on delete as opposed to save. This is especially true when scrolling down a small LCD screen on the back of a digital camera in the direct glare of sunlight. Image recovery should be broken down into several departments. These are image file recovery from your computer’s hard drive or other permanent storage, recovery of image files from camera smart cards and recovery of RAW camera files. A specialty data recovery program centered around rescue of lost digital photos is capable of image recovery in all three of these situations. Recovery of image files on your computer’s hard drive is the simplest of these tasks. All that this requires is a scan for image files with very popular extensions that have been deleted such as JPEG, GIF and BMP files. Image file recovery from your camera’s smart card storage is much the same. The only actual difference being that you must select the location of the external drive, which your smart card is plugged into in order to scan. Camera RAW files are a different matter altogether as these file formats are specific and proprietary to each camera manufacturer. High-end camera makers such as Nikon, Canon and Minolta initially store their files in special coding sequences. Only the highest quality digital photo recovery software can scan for and recognize these files in whole or damaged condition.
The same software used for digital image recovery can also be used for iPod recovery and general recovery of audio and visual files.
General data recovery usually refers to the rescue of files deleted from the computer’s hard drive. While it is true that recovery of files from many other devices is also a major part of the data recovery process, the fundamentals of that process are consistent and apply regardless of the device you hope to recover files from. So when we speak of hard drive recovery we can actually narrow this down to many specific areas. There are two basic ways to define the areas covered by data recovery. The first is to define them by hardware. We qualify the data recovery task based on whether we’re trying to recover lost files from an external hard drive or an internal drive. Is the computer that our files are lost on a laptop or desktop computer? Or are we trying to recover deleted files on some other type of digital media such as a camera smart card, a USB flash drive or as diverse a device as an Apple iPod. Data recovery from MP3 players, camera smart cards, and USB flash drives is generally referred to as digital media recovery, that being the recovery of image, video and audio files.
The second means of deciding our target for data recovery is determined by which kind of operating system our computer is using. Powerful data recovery software is available for all of the major operating systems. Of course the most prevalent operating systems are those supplied as Windows. There are file recovery programs built for every version of Windows. In fact most deleted file recovery is referred to as Windows data recovery or more simply Windows recovery. The number of computers using the Linux operating system has increased drastically over the last five years. So much so that there are now available powerful and efficient programs for Linux data recovery. Linux recovery differs from Windows recovery in that the file storage systems used by the Linux OS catalog say than retrieve information differently. This same scenario exists for Apple Mac users. Computers using Mac OS 10 must have software for file recovery designed strictly to interact with the Apple operating system.
Sometimes our data recovery requirements are based on a hybrid of software and hardware; this is the case when dealing with raid recovery. Raid systems, those being redundant array of independent disks, require data recovery software built for the operating system in place as well as the software designed for the multi disk connectivity of the raid array itself.
