Remote access with TeamViewer
Also, there are third-party tools over there to help you establish a remote connection between computers.
One of the most popular utilities is TeamViewer. To start working, download the installation file from the official website.
You don’t need to install the program. For one-time use, it’s more convenient to choose the option Run only.
However, it’s better to install the program if you are planning to use it regularly.
When the program starts, here’s the window you will see. Enter Partner ID
Type the password and click Log on.
The ID and password are shown in the program’s window on the remote computer.
If your Internet is all right, the connection will be established within 10 to 30 seconds, and you’ll be able to start recovering the lost data.
Recover deleted data over the Internet
For recovering lost information, we recommend our product, Hetman Partition Recovery.
It will scan the hard disk or external storage device, find the lost data and help you recover it in a simple and efficient way.
Step 1. Download, install and run the program. Open the disk where the lost information was stored.
Remember to immediately stop using the hard disk where the important information used to be stored; do not install any programs or write anything there. Also, we don’t recommend reinstalling the operating system, because it can overwrite the data and it will be lost beyond recovery.
Step 2. In the Drive Manager, select the disk, right-click on it and choose Open.
Step 3. At first, try Fast scan – it will take less time.
Step 4. If the fast scan doesn’t help to find the deleted data, then go for Full analysis.
The file recovery wizard will scan the selected volume immediately and display the scan results in the right side of the program’s window.
Step 5. When the scan is over, all you need to do is to select the deleted files you want to restore and then click the Recovery button.
Step 6. Specify where to save the data and click Recovery again.
Also, this program can create a disk image and the conduct all recovery operations with this image which increases your chances to restore the deleted information successfully, because multiple rounds of scanning may result in data overwriting.
Hetman Partition Recovery can be used in the following cases:
- To recover files lost after removing or formatting partitions, after disk repartitioning, system errors, virus attacks and other scenarios that involve loss of data.
- To recover data from internal and external hard disks, USB storage devices, SD memory cards, cameras and other devices used to store information.
- and to recover lost photos, videos, music, documents and other file types.
Summing up, here is how you can connect to a remote computer over the Internet and help your friends or relatives recover data in a few easy steps.
