The blog highlights the issues of recovering data from various storage devices. We consider the possibility of data recovery algorithms, ways to prevent the data loss. Follow us in social networks and recommend articles to your friends.
from SSD: Myths and Reality
Read about SSD recovery issues: physical destruction of files with TRIM command and when it doesn’t work.
SSD drives are quickly replacing traditional magnetic hard disks. Often used as system disks, SSD drives hold the operating system, application, and all or most user files such as documents, settings, browser favorites, email etc. Having no moving parts, SSD drives are supposedly more reliable than their mechanical counterparts. However, user error, virus attacks and operating system failures present similar issues of data integrity.
Data Recovery is Impossible: SSD, Cloud and Online Services
The difficulties in recovering files deleted from SSDs, cloud and online storage services, RAID systems and NAS devices.
In the first part of the article, we took a look at programs for recovering data from traditional hard drives. In this second part of the series “When Software Can’t Help” we’ll talk about flash-based (solid-state) storage, cloud storage systems and online storage services.
Disadvantages of RAW Shooting, RAW & JPEG File Formats
Read about pros and cons of RAW images, and what utilities are the best to recover deleted RAW files.
There are of course some clear disadvantages of shooting RAW. RAW files cannot be printed or viewed as easily as JPEG’s. They must be processed with proper software for best results. Naturally, their main disadvantage is the time required to process RAW images.
Shooting RAW (digital negatives): Better Image Quality
In this article we’ll talk about advantages and disadvantages of RAW image formats when compared to JPEG.
In film era, there were slides and prints. In today’s digital world, there are RAW’s (digital negatives) and JPEGs (digital pictures). Photographers have polarized opinions on shooting one format or another. Digital SLR and mirrorless cameras have been offering the ability to shoot RAW for a long while. Many photographers are switching from shooting JPEG to capturing images in RAW format for some obvious and some less obvious reasons.
When Software Can’t Help: Hard Disk Drives
When data recovery software can’t help you anymore: the signs of your hard disk worn out to the limit.
As manufacturers of software tools for recovering users’ data, we are often presented with cases when our tools could not help. Is there a different tool that could do the job better, or is information truly unrecoverable? In this article we’ll have a look at physically damaged storage devices, review early signs of upcoming failure and give tips on what to do next if your storage device has failed.
