Professional use of data recovery software

On daily basis profession and technology used in them are getting better and better but with the level of technology issues of handling the traffic have become much complicated. There was a time when less number of people were interested in the services available for them so handling their details and demands was not a challenging thing but now because of easy accessibility the level of demand and traffic rises daily. In today’s date for a successful business you have to have your own server either as a promotional step or to give better accessibility to their customers.

When we launch a new database or a new application we try our level best to increase its users without even focusing on the number of people/users it can handle. When we actually realize the need of enhancement of server the time has already gone and you have already lost data. Losing data and that two of the server is not a joke as there is nothing which can reverse the time and give you time to correct them. If you think so then this piece of writing can bring solution to your problems of data lost.

We tend to add new hardware or software to handle the loads of the server but at times these hardware and software faces failure and this is all because of the incapability to handle the server. All such situations lead to data loss and we think this is something which cannot be reversed.

There is something called EaseUS data recovery software that can help you to access the lost data whether it is on Pc, laptop or server. This means that such software tools are not only good or amongst must-to-haves on personal use level but they are equally important for professional use too. Big companies have their personal server managers that tackle all the server associated issues but this is something that an entry-level company cannot afford. This demands something which is not only cost free but also can be easily run by a non-tech person. Going with free data recovery software  helps you in avoiding extra expenses and helps you in maintaining your server smoothly at least without any tensions of permanent data loss.

3 simple steps to run the data recovery software like EaseUS and recover your lost files are:

  • Launch: After downloading the software of your choice, first and foremost job you need to do is to launch it. For this you have to accept the access permission if that software asks for any and then run it.
  • Scan: After launching data recovery software you have to click on scan button and choose the option you want i.e. quick scan, deep scan, etc. You can go for full scan and also for any partition scan; it totally depends upon your need.
  • Recover: As soon as you run the scan you will be able to see all the previous files. You can save the ones you lost and wanted back.

Microsoft Releases ‘Windows 10 Fall Update’ to Windows Insiders

If you can’t wait for another few days to get your hands on the Windows 10 Fall Update, the first major update to company’s latest desktop operating system, you can get access to its beta build dubbed 10586 by enrolling yourself as a Windows Insider. The company on late Thursday released a new Windows 10 build to Windows Insiders, and it has the same version Microsoft signed off as the Fall Update according to a report.

Microsoft is expected to release Fall Update – codenamed Threshold 2 – sometime next week. But the build 10586 it has seeded out to the testers is the same build the company has signed off as the Fall Update, according to The Verge. The update, which largely aims to smoothen the rough edgesWindows 10 shipped with on July 29 – also offers a handful of new features.

The Fall Update features an improved Media Creation Tool, new capabilities in Cortana, and several tweaks to Edge – notably though, support for add-ons on Microsoft Edge is not on the cards, the company has confirmed. There are several changes to the user interface as well. Microsoft has pushed out the coloured title bar for desktop applications and improved the contextual menu. Prior to this update, the contextual menu inside apps and various windows looked oddly different.

Another major addition you can see in the new update is the introduction of Skype integration. Both Messaging app and Skype Video apps, available to download from the Windows Store, now offer built-in Skype capability. Prior to this, a user needed to download and install the standalone Skype client separately.

The company is expected to roll out the update on Patch Tuesday next week. While the nature of the update isn’t officially known yet, according to a report, users who’re on build 10240 (the preview version sent to RTM and testers in the last week of July), will be able to directly upgrade to the latest version of the operating system. A standalone ISO version of the updated build 10586 isn’t available for download yet.

Digital Storm’s gorgeous, exotic Aventum 3

4-image-internals-100615851-orig.jpg

After teasing us with a taste of its new Aventum 3 at CES, Digital Storm says it’s finally ready to ship its latest exotic PC design, which features custom liquid cooling and power integrated into the case itself.

With the Aventum 3, Digital Storm decided to focus on features that could make wiring and liquid-cooling easier to upgrade. The routing of the water-cooling hoses, for example, runs directly into the backplane the motherboard mounts to, and attach with quick-connect fittings. Power connectors for the motherboard are integrated into case’s backplane, too.

Connectors for the power supply on Digital Storm’s Aventum 3 are also integrated directly in to case to make wiring tidier and easier to manage

The Aventum 3 design also adds a custom distribution block for the liquid-cooling that appears to be machined out of clear acrylic so you can see the flow of the liquid through the system. Digital Storm’s custom lighting and fan control modules reside behind the two fans, I believe.

The use of a case window on the back of the PC is a bold statement as well. Even the most tidy system builds typically only look nice on the side where you can see the motherboard and graphics cards. The wires tucked behind the motherboard tray are usually a rat’s nest of cables, hoses, and zip ties better left covered up. By putting a window on both sides, Digital Storm obviously has faith in its ability to deliver a clean aesthetic experience.

You can see the custom liquid distribution block that’s used in the new Aventum 3.

“This system is our declaration that a PC does not have to be just the sum of its parts. We designed the AVENTUM 3 from the ground up with a focus on unmatched accessibility and modularity that can’t be found anywhere else,” said Digital Storm’s Hajit Chana.

Chana is right, too—it can’t be found anywhere else. If you’re wondering how you can buy the case yourself, well, you can’t. Digital Storm’s claim to fame with the Aventum (and its original two Bolt small form factor PCs) is a custom in-house case design. The company then turns out to American-based machine shops to produce the cases to spec. No other vendor I know does this.

Digital Storm said the water block used in the Aventum 3 is also a custom design and manufactured by EKWB.

As you can expect, that makes it expensive. The Aventum 3 starts at $4,930 and I’d guess that’s without a multi-GPU configuration.

Why this matters: At the very top of the enthusiast and gaming PC market, boutique makers constantly try to one-up each other on their builds so they can continue to demand the premium they charge. Digital Storm’s latest efforts take it to the next level.

Another Report Says Xiaomi’s First Laptop Will Ship Early 2016

A Taiwan-based news report has claimed that Xiaomi is working on its first notebook computer which is being manufactured by Inventec.

Taipei Times quotes Inventec chairman Richard Lee who claimed that the first laptop from Xiaomi’s stables can be expected to start shipping in the first or second half of 2016. “I am upbeat about the business outlook for Xiaomi’s notebook computers, as the firm has more than 200 million registered smartphone users,” said Lee.

Lee expects Xiaomi to shakeup the laptop market the same way it did with smartphones. “I am not sure if the smartphone approach will be applicable to notebooks, but I expect Xiaomi’s entry into the notebook industry to bring something new to the market. We will start shipping Xiaomi’s notebook computers in the first or second quarter of next year,” he added.

Inventec, which has assembly lines for Xiaomi smartphones, is said to design and manufacture Xiaomi’s first notebook products in its own plants in China.

Gadgets 360 reached out Xiaomi for a response on the report, but the company refused to comment. In an emailed response, Xiaomi said “We would not like to comment on the speculation.”

It’s worth pointing that the first half shipment claims of Lee for Xiaomi laptops corroborate with a recent report that suggested the company was working a MacBook Air-like notebook slated for a Q1 2016 release. The Chinese company in the past has refuted reports about its plans to enter the laptops market, which is understandable.

Xiaomi apart from smartphones over the years has been launching multiple devices including TVs, wearables, networking, and several home appliances.

The company at its Wednesday event, apart from launching its Mi 4c smartphone, introduced the new Mi Mobile service in China. The company thus marked its entry into an all new segment where it would compete against other China-based carriers.

The new MVNO (or mobile virtual network operator) service from Xiaomi would be offering consumers voice and data services utilising the networks of China Unicom and China Telecom.

Lenovo in the News Again for Installing Spyware on Its Machines

Despite launching a number of interesting products this year, Lenovo has perhaps got more press time for the things it has done wrong. The Chinese technology conglomerate is back in news, this time for allegedly installing a program on at least some of its refurbished notebook lineup that is programmed to send users’ feedback data to Lenovo. Upon further inspection, the program seems to have an association with a third-party marketing and Web analytics firm.

As per many users’ report, the company ships its factory refurbished laptops with a program called “Lenovo Customer Feedback Program 64” that is scheduled to run every day. According to its description, Lenovo Customer Feedback Program 64 “uploads Customer Feedback Program data to Lenovo.”

Upon further digging, Michael Horowitz of Computerworld found these files in the folder of the aforementioned program: “Lenovo.TVT.CustomerFeedback.Agent.exe.config,Lenovo.TVT.CustomerFeedback.InnovApps.dll, and Lenovo.TVT.CustomerFeedback.OmnitureSiteCatalyst.dll.” As he further pointed out, Omniture, as mentioned in the suffix of one of the files, is an online marketing and Web analytics firm, which suggests that the laptops are tracking and monitoring users’ activities.

On its support website, the largest PC vendor noted that it may include software components that communicate with servers on the Internet. These applications could be on any and every ThinkCentre, ThinkStation, and ThinkPad lineups. One of the applications listed on the website isLenovo.TVT.CustomerFeedback.Agent.exe.config.

This isn’t the first time Lenovo has been caught shipping what appears to be a spyware on its machines. Earlier this year, Lenovo was found bundling a spyware called “Superfish” on its machines. In August, the company was caught covertly downloading and installing software on its Windows PCs. The program modified the BIOS to force the computer to download its programs upon each login.

India PC Market Shrank 14.1 Percent YoY in Q2, Says IDC

PC shipments in India increased 1.4 percent to 2.19 million units in the April-June 2015 quarter over the first quarter of the year, helped by rebound in the commercial segment, research firm IDC said on Wednesday.

The sales were, however, lower by 14.1 percent compared to the same quarter last year, IDC said in a statement. It said the Indian PC market is looking to recuperate in due course of time.

“Festive buying is expected to drive a positive growth in consumer spending and last leg of ELCOT fulfillments are expected to lead to an overall growth in the PC market in the succeeding two quarters,” IDC India Research Manager (Client Devices) Kiran Kumar said.

As per IDC data, the commercial PC segment recorded 1.04 million unit shipments in the second quarter of 2015, registering a 4.5 percent quarter-on-quarter growth against the preceding quarter.

“Various announcements and initiatives made by the government on boosting economic growth had positive impact on the sentiments of the business community,” Kumar said.

In order to sustain this buoyancy, it is vital that implementation of reforms continues at a steady pace, he added. However, the consumer PC market recorded shipment of 1.15 million units, a quarter-on-quarter drop of 1.3 percent over January-March 2015 quarter.

“While there are signs of optimism in the market and even as overall consumer sentiments are improving, discretionary spending levels are yet to witness a makeover,” IDC India Market Analyst (Client Devices) Manish Yadav said.

As a result, inventories continue to build up and vendors are hoping for a seasonal turnaround in the July-September 2015 quarter, Yadav added.

HP retained its top spot with market share of 26.4 per cent, followed by Dell (21.6 percent), Lenovo(18.1 percent) and Acer (11.3 percent) in the said quarter.

pc_shipments_q2_2015_idc.jpeg“As market leader, HP has been dedicated to supporting this transformation in 2015 by relentlessly focusing on providing differentiated experiences for our customers and introducing a range of stylish, innovative products in new form factors,” HP India Vice President and General Manager, Printing and Personal Systems, Rajiv Srivastava said.

Raspberry Pi Kits to Be Provided to Every School: Kerala Chief Minister

Looking to promote the teaching of basic computer science in schools, the state government today said that all schools in Kerala, both government and aided, will soon be equipped with electronics andRaspberry Pi kits.

Speaking at the inauguration of an ‘Electronics@School’ project, initiated by the state IT Department, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said that 6,000 government schools would be given electronics kits to support and nurture a “maker- culture” among their students.

“Besides providing Raspberry Pi kits to 10,000 students selected on merit basis, steps will be taken to provide every government and aided school with a Raspberry Pi kit for common coding practice,” Chandy said.

He also launched the distribution of electronic kits under the Electronics@School project and gave away prizes to winners of a coding competition held as part of the first phase of the ‘Learn to Code’ project.

These projects are being implemented jointly by the Kerala Start-Up Mission and IT@School. Minister for IT and Industries, PK Kunhalikutty, launched the second phase of ‘Learn to Code’ project and flagged off the distribution of Raspberry Pi kits to 7,500 schoolchildren.

The minister suggested it would be appropriate for the Department of General Education to take up these projects for their better implementation.

“The projects aim to skill Kerala’s schoolchildren to cope with the future revolution in technology and entrepreneurship,” Kunhalikutty said.

Education Minister PK Abdu Rabb said both the ‘Learn to Code’ and ‘Electronics@School’ projects would be made part of the curriculum.

“The electronics kit, which is aligned with the Physics syllabus of classes 9 and 10, has been reviewed and approved by the curriculum committee,” he said.

“The project’s aim is to add 40,000 talented youngsters from schools to the vibrant maker community being developed through community participation programmes initiated by the Kerala Startup Mission,” said PH Kurien, Principal Secretary, Department of IT and Industries.

Prizes for district-level winners were, meanwhile, handed out at Saturday’s function.

IT@School Wayanad District Coordinator VJ Thomas was acknowledged for facilitating and guiding the maximum number of projects.

In the pilot phase, which was launched by Chandy in February, 2,500 selected students of class eight across all district centres were given Raspberry Pi kits and trained in programming by IT experts.

The Raspberry Pi is a computer developed by an UK-based firm for aiding the teaching of basic computer science in schools.

BBC ‘Micro:bit’ Microcomputer for Kids Delayed Till After Christmas

BBC Micro:bit a microcomputer for kids, which was launched in July this year has now been delayed until after Christmas. BBC at the time of launch planned to distribute one million Micro:bit (also called Micro Bit) computers to kids (11 to 12-year-olds) in the UK in October.

“We’re expecting to start sending them out to teachers before Christmas and to children early in the new year,” said a spokesman to BBC News. The spokesperson added that the company has to make some “minor revisions” to the microcomputer. “As a result of our rigorous testing process, we’ve decided to make some minor revisions to the device – getting it right for children and teachers before we manufacture one million units is our priority.”

While the delay is a bad news, the company still plans to start shipping the Micro:bit to teachers before Christmas and to children by early next year, and with a better offering. It can also be thought of as a late Christmas gift.

The BBC Micro:bit features 25 red LED lights, two programmable buttons, an accelerometer, compass, Bluetooth Low Energy module, Micro-USB port, and five input and output (I/O) rings to connect the Micro:bit to devices or sensors using crocodile clips or 4mm banana plugs. An optional power pack powered by AA batteries is required to use it as a standalone computer. The Micro:bit’s processor is based on an ARM Cortex-M0, and has been made by Nordic Semiconductor.

The firm has made this microcomputer in partnership with 29 companies including ARM, Barclays, element14, Freescale, Lancaster University, Microsoft, Nordic Semiconductor, and Samsung. The firm states that it is doing this because UK is currently facing a critical skills shortage in the technology sector. It is a part of BBC’s Make it Digital initiative to inspire kids to get creative with coding, programming and digital technology.

Microsoft Develops a Linux-Based Operating System – Azure Cloud Switch

It has been pointed on many occasions that Microsoft under Satya Nadella is very different from the one he inherited from Steve Ballmer. Under Nadella, Microsoft is more open than it has ever been before. Last year, Nadella announced support for container-friendly CoreOS distro, one of the five Linux distros Microsoft has embraced in the recent past. Now the company is taking one step further in its alliance with Linux: it has just built a Linux-based operating system.

Kamala Subramaniam, Principal Architect, Azure Networking, on Thursday wrote in a blog post that Microsoft has built Azure Cloud Switch (ACS), a cross-platform modular operating system for data center networking. This will power network components such as switches. The interesting thing about this operating system is that it is built on top of Linux.

Azure Cloud Switch, as Subramaniam writes, will make debugging, testing, and fixing bugs much faster. “It also allows us the flexibility to scale down the software and develop features that are required for our data centre and our networking needs,” she wrote. She further noted that the move has already been getting overwhelming response from partnered vendors.

“We’re talking about ACS publicly as we believe this approach of disaggregating the switch software from the switch hardware will continue to be a growing trend in the networking industry and we would like to contribute our insights and experiences of this journey starting here,” she added.

The bottom line for everyone who is not interested in Azure technology is that the Microsoft underSatya Nadella doesn’t hesitate to partner with old rivals if that gets the job done for it. The company, which once wouldn’t miss out on any opportunity to defame its rivals, is now aggressively making apps for Android and iOS platforms. The company’s presence at Apple’s iPhone 6s event earlier this month was a big testament too.
