Methods of Database Recovery

Have you dropped your laptop? Is it overheating? Is your Database having issues? Do you Suspect the hard drive has Crashed?

Any information belonging to an organization is usually stored in form of a database. In case information is lost in the database, it would have major negative effects on the organization. Data recovery analysts have found out that it can cost you upto $8000 per MB to recreate client information. This is because of various costs that may be incurred such as overtime pay of re-entry, transportation costs for the client and also communication costs.

To help reduce on these costs, it would be good to employ database recovery services. It would cost a few thousand dollars but is way cheaper than the cost of recreating data. In case of data loss, some steps have to be taken in order to assure safe backup and full recovery of all lost information is done.

The first important step is to choose the most appropriate database recovery. At the moment, there are three methods of database recovery.

The first one is the simple database recovery. This method is used when a database administrator decides that the transactions are not as important as the main data of the database. In this case, one only needs to save the main data and ignore the transactions that had occurred. The data can be recreated in a short time and may not necessarily need experts to do it. But it is good not to take a chance because if one is not careful, you may end up losing all the information in the database.

The second and the third method include full recovery and bulk-logged recovery. In these two methods, one has to protect both the data in the database and all the necessary transactions relating to the database. These 2 methods are more technical and sophisticated. The have to be done with experienced technicians such as data recovery specialists. In addition, the above methods need more system requirements and disk drive space. The data recovery experts will come with the necessary software to carry out recovery. This will all depend on the scope of failure experienced. If the failure is major, then they will have to take your server and perform the recovery in their labs. Otherwise, they will just run the recovery software and will be able to recover your data.

What causes your computer to lose files?

What causes your computer to lose files?

As you use your computer, beware that you can lose your files at any time. Here are some situations and things that may cause you to lose your file:

Human error:

As a human being, you are bound to make a few mistakes here and there. One way this can occur is through accidental erasure. For example, let’s say you are working on a certain document and you accidentally hit the delete button. When a dialog box appears, you just click ‘OK’ and continue. You may have not noticed but probably you might have deleted a certain folder. It was done mistakenly and you probably did not know what was going on. Such situations happen and in this way you may end up losing your files.
Another way human beings can cause loss of files on your computer is by allowing other people to use your machine without access. They may come and delete some of your files, either deliberately or accidentally.

Viruses:

Viruses are programs written to bring about corruption of files, especially files stored in storage devices like hard disks and USB flash disks. Viruses can be gotten from the internet i.e. by accessing certain sites (especially porn sites), downloading certain free software, email attachments and also from external storage devices that are introduced to your computer . The virus will infect your computer files and thus will become corrupted. This is why in most cases when you look for certain files, they cannot be accessed. They are in a corruptible form. The worst part about computer viruses is that, like their medical counterparts, they replicate to infect many files.

This is one of the reasons why when purchasing a new computer , it is recommended to install anti-virus software to protect your computer against viruses.

Why is your computer freezing?

Why is your computer freezing?

Just like any other man made machine, computers are bound to malfunction at some point. One of the common malfunctions of the computer is freezing. Freezing (or hanging) occurs when you issue an instruction to the computer and nothing happens. In some cases, when you attempt to move the mouse it doesn’t scroll on the screen. If you have experienced this before or you are currently experiencing it, then one of the following has occurred:

RAM and Hard disk space: Lack of regular maintenance of the computer is what leads to computer freezing and crashing. If the computer is overloaded with information, then there is a high chance that it might freeze. Computer technicians have found out that the RAM should have at least 25% free memory left. This also applies to the hard disk space. If this is not so, very little work can be done as the computer would be extremely slow in processing your information. It is also necessary to perform defragmenting of the hard disk to utilize as much space as possible.

Installing new hardware: It is possible to follow the events that led to the freezing of the computer. If you happened to install new hardware and the computer began freezing then it clearly indicates that the hardware was not properly installed or it is not compatible with your computer. To solve this problem, one may uninstall the suspected hardware and reboot the PC. There is some hardware that needs drivers. It could be possible that you have to install the drivers after installing the hardware. It may or may not work but it will reduce the chances of computer screen freezes.

Installing new software: Just as in the case above, the same situation applies here. There is some software that is really large and takes quite a lot of disk space. If the PC started freezing immediately after installing new software, then it means it is the software that is slowing the system down. One may opt to uninstall it.

You think you know your Laptop!

You think you know your Laptop?

Have you dropped your laptop? Is it overheating? Do you suspect the hard drive has crashed?

In this day and age where technology has greatly advanced, laptops have become so common. It is easy to purchase a laptop for as little as $250 or even less. This is because people want to carry out their business as they move from place to place. Even young children in elementary school know how to use laptops. As important as they are, there are risks that come with these laptops.

Laptop Recovery Experts have found that over 2000 laptops are stolen or lost everyday in this world. This eventually means that there are 2000 people everyday who lose their data through theft. For example, it is very common to find laptop users with their laptops in cyber cafés. If they leave them and, say, they go to attend to a nature call, they may come back and find it is not there. Someone has stolen. In addition to this, there are those people who are mugged and even have their houses broken into. These are some of the ways that people can lose their data through laptops.

Another thing about laptops is that they are portable. This is actually good because you can work on it while you travel or do other things. But with this portability there are risks of it dropping and crashing physically. You could even be walking with your laptop on the streets when all of a sudden, the strap of the bag carrying it breaks and the laptop drops. That would be a disastrous thing to happen. But there are many people who have dropped their laptops. The most important question they ask is: Can I still get my files?

Good news! Yes you can!! (Sounds like a famous slogan). Even if you have dropped your laptop severally but you have not physically tampered with the hard disk, your file can be recovered. All you need to do is get in touch with data recovery experts who will have your data recovered. All they need is your hard drive.

Wonder Why Hard Drives and Memory Cards Have Less Space Than Advertised?

Wonder Why Hard Drives and Memory Cards Have Less Space Than Advertised?

Today we are going to learn something that not everyone has taken keen about but somehow have always wanted to know why this is happening. ” Less Space in Memory Cards and Hard Drives

Have you ever wondered why computers always indicate that your hard drive or memory card has a smaller storage capacity than what’s advertised on the box (and the card itself)? No, it’s not because you got a defective card, it’s not because your

Raid Recovery in Nairobi

Best Raid Recovery in Nairobi ( by East African Data Handlers Ltd )

RAID Data Recovery Proccess

What is Raid? by defination its “A redundant array of independent drives” (“RAID“) . The process of data recovery for the Raid drives is much more difficult than a single hard drive recovery and should only be attempted by a qualified specialist, like the Raid Recovery in Nairobi by our experts at East African Data Handlers. RAID manufacturers set up the internal controls of their arrays in very different configurations. One thing that is certain is that the RAID configuration is most likely proprietary, hence is never disclosed to or shared with other data recovery companies. That’s why RAID data recovery engineers must have years of experience and be able to write recovery programs for each separate RAID data recovery operation.

Types of Raids

On most situations you will be using one of the following four levels of RAIDs.

Other Raid include: RAID 2, RAID 3, RAID 4, RAID 6

What is the First step in Raid Data Recovery Process

The first step in the data recovery process is to get the RAID drives’ data copied on to a server or other hard drive so that the data set can be re-assembled.

Key Notes about Raid Data Recovery process

Each recovery procedure is unique to a particular RAID array. For example, a level 0 RAID (also known as a RAID 0 ) is the most challenging type of recovery because there is no fault tolerance and thus, no margin for error. A RAID 0 is made up of two drives, with the data striped in small sets across one or both of them. Since there is no parity in a RAID 0, the information that was saved on a failed drive is not replicated elsewhere, meaning that it will be difficult or impossible to recover.

How about the Rest of Raids?

On the other hand, a RAID 5 is made up of three or more drives and does offer parity data, so when one drive fails, a replacement drive can be used for recovery and the array can be rebuilt. However, if two drives of a RAID 5 fail, the recovery process becomes more difficult. If enough data can be saved from the malfunctioning drives, an experienced RAID data recovery engineer ( Like our Raid recovery in nairobi engineers ) can usually succeed, because the RAID parity is still available.

Other key Points about Raid

Each RAID data recovery is unique, because manufacturers set up their internal arrays differently. A RAID recovery engineer must be able to determine the arrangement of data and the parity cycle to recover the data and rebuild the RAID . The data is accessed on a file system level instead of on a controller level. Normally, an NTFS file system is used in this type of recovery , because the logical drives will be providing the basis for working on a RAID image. This allows the RAID recovery engineer to assemble bits and bytes after a successful recovery using propriety high skillful software operated by engineers.

Why Raid data recovery is not for amateurs but for pro engineers?

RAID data recovery is certainly not recommended for amateurs, nor for the weak of heart. East African Data Handlers Data Recovery Services has invested heavily on high end professional on Raid Data recovery and has successfully recovered data from RAIDs as well as all popular types of storage media since 2006.
