I saw someone online say that Data Rescue 3 for Windows was made by a company called Recoversoft.

I’m fairly certain (99.999% sure) that the company is actually called Prosoft.

I’m not sure if they were ever called Recoversoft, but you can see the company listed on the Amazon page is Prosoft.

Data Rescue 3 is really known for being a popular recovery software among Mac users.

However, PC (Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7) users will also find Prosoft’s data recovery software to be a great tool for help with data recovery on Windows machines.

One of the reviewers on Amazon said that they got confused by the user Interface, but that the tech support was able to help very quickly simply by sending back a couple of emails.

The review goes on to say that the software worked very well for them after learning how to use the program.

Generally speaking, for both the Windows and Mac versions of Data Rescue 3, the big selling point is the customer support.

People feel like when they do get stuck, Prosoft is there to help them with a real person who understands their questions and responds in a helpful way.

Another reviewer said that one nice thing about Prosoft’s software is that it does not require Windows to be running in order to get back your data. This particular reviewer was using Windows Vista and when he ran into trouble and called Prosoft, they “actually answered the phone and even called me back”.

If you can get a software company to restore your confidence and give you great answers to your challenges, that’s a product worth looking into.

If you are in need of data recovery for your Windows machine, we recommend taking a look at Data Rescue 3 PC.

You’ll find the best price for the software on Amazon.

Stellar Data Recovery Review

—————

In our review of Stellar Data Recovery, we found few difficulties or challenges. The software installs easily, the program does what it says it will do.

While it won’t recover all files ( no software can recover everything – especially if your files have been lost due to serious physical damage of a hard drive), Stellar Data recovery can help you get back your data.

What causes data loss?

Files become corrupted. This means that the basic structure of the data breaks apart.

Think of it like a chain linked together.

If the chain gets pulled too hard, or if physical pressure causes some change to the chain, the links can become weak and even break.

A file or data can become corrupted for a variety of reasons.

Some possible ways that Data Loss can occur include:

Resizing of partitions on a hard drive (which can either be incomplete or simply not work)
Computer malfunction (where the data isn’t “linked” correctly in the process of creating it)
Formatting a hard drive (which is basically like melting all the links back to their basic metal form)
Damage in the bootup/startup records (Where the computer simply can’t find the chain it needs)
Files that are cross-linked (two processes pulling on the chain at the same time expecting it to do different things)
Infections from viruses (Think of rust or metal eating bacteria)
Power Surges (sudden and powerful pulls on the chain)

Stellar Data Recovery seems to work well regardless of the reasons for data loss.

The program (in the time we reviewed it) worked well for data recovery on all kinds of damaged files.

Some of the tools that we liked while reviewing the Stellar Data Recovery software included:
A utility called S.M.A.R.T. which checks the drive and offers quick alerts
Cloning and imaging of the hard drive (creating a backup easily)
Easy searching for any specific file or folder (assuming you know what’s missing on your hard drive)
File Recovery for deleted files (if you’ve deleted an MS PowerPoint, Word, Excel, Access, BKF, or Zip file, Stellar Data Recovery can get it back for you).

Stellar Data Recovery can also get back audio, video, and photo files from your computer’s Hard Drive, or peripherals like memory cards, thumb/pen drives, SD cards, and other external drives.

And, as you would expect from a data recovery software, Stellar offers e-mail recovery which will help you get back deleted or lost emails in Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express.

Overall, our review of Stellar Data Recovery was a positive experience.

Data Rescue 3 (for Mac OS X)

Save $50 on Data Rescue 3 for Mac by getting it on Amazon

Quick caveat: Something that kind of bothers me is what I know as the “department of redundancy department”.

This is where someone says something like “3 AM in the morning”. (No offense intended, but the people I hear say this kind of thing most often are from Oklahoma.)

What brings this up today? Well, I’ve been looking for a free trial of Data Rescue 3 for Mac OS X, and someone has posted a review where they keep saying “Data Rescue 3 for Mac OSX 10.” That’s redundant and completely unnecessary. The 10 is covered by the X.

But I digress.

I didn’t ever find a free trial of Data Rescue 3 for Mac OSX. But I did find out that if you buy Data Rescue 3 on Amazon, you will save some money.

The biggest thing that people love about Data Rescue 3 for Mac and PC is not what the program does.

Of course the software will recover your files and rescue you for the temporary hell you are in when you think you have lost your data. It wouldn’t be as popular of a tool as it is, if it didn’t perform well.

However, what people love most about this software, is the support that is offered by the company that makes it – Prosoft. Review after review on Amazon have positively glowing comments about how great the support is, and how “Mike” at Prosoft (Mike in particular) is someone who is very helpful.

Being able to talk to a real person is a great selling point for any software you are buying these days.

It seems we are living in the era of multi-button systems where you get trapped in touch-tone hell (when the reason you’re calling is because you’re already in a nightmare from the data you think you’ve lost).

So that alone makes Prosoft’s Data Recovery 3 a tool worth looking into if you need to recover files which have (mysteriously) gone missing from your Mac.

Or maybe you deleted the data yourself and are now looking to cover your mistake before your wife finds out you’ve (accidentally) deleted all of the wedding photos.

Not that my husband would have any experience with that.

Data Rescue 3 for Mac requires you to have:
PowerPC G4, G5, or Intel
A DVD drive
512MB (or better) RAM
1.0GHz (or better) processor
A Firewire, USB 2.0, eSATA or internal drive where you can recover your data.

There’s not a free trial I can see, but if you want to save money, check out the links below which will take you directly to Amazon’s pages for Prosoft’s Data Rescue 3

Data loss is like a bad dream where you discover you’ve lost your left arm.

You forget it’s not there, because it always has been.

And then you go to use it, and realize…

“I don’t have my left arm. WHAT? I DON’T have MY LEFT ARM?”

I’ve been there.

I spent months working on a project.

It was a project about an online tool which I wanted to keep secret.

I thought it was such a good idea.

Coupon Code: Disk Doctors Outlook Email Recovery Software

Description: Best email recovery software? Some comes from Disk Doctors Outlook Recovery Software. Email recovery can be a very frustrating experience, but it doesn’t have to be. Also includes coupon code for Disk Doctors Outlook recovery.

Disk Doctors Coupon Code for 15% off on Outlook Mail Recovery
http://www.identitytheftsecrets.com/15-discount-disk-doctors-outlook-mail-recovery

Email Recovery Software
Disk Doctors has two pieces of software which are excellent for email recovery:

Disk Doctors Outlook Express Email Recovery Software
If you get frustrated trying to find and/or restore messages when you’re using Outlook Express, that’s not all that surprising. And it’s hard to find software that understands Microsoft’s proprietary .dbx files, which is what Outlook Express uses.

The Outlook Express Email Recovery Software from Disk Doctors has an understanding of how dbx files work from having reverse-engineered the process of how those files are created.

Disk Doctors program for Outlook Express includes a dbx repair tool which has been specifically developed for Microsoft Outlook Express. It can fix and recover these dbx files for you.

What most people don’t know about Outlook express is that it’s not really designed to hold lots of messages. If you use Outlook Express that way, it can cause problems for you and/or the dbx files. Disk Doctors Outlook Express Email Recovery Software works to seek out the Express files, recover them, and give them to you in a way that you can access them.

This program is specifically designed to counter the problems incurred when you have some kind of faulty anti-virus scan or an actual virus.

The other thing it will help you with is actual human error (and by that I mean if you accidentally delete an email that you wanted).

Outlook Mail Recovery Software Comprehensive
(The second specialized Disk Doctors program).
If you’re using the full version of Outlook (not just Outlook Express), then Disk Doctors Outlook PST Recovery is a good idea and good solution for you.

Outlook Mail Recovery is a program designed to repair corrupted Outlook .pst files.

When comparing Outlook Express to Microsoft Outlook, it’s easier to see that Outlook is much more involved.

Outlook lets you create calendars, manage contacts, send and receive emails, etc.

Outlook creates files called PST files.

And, PST files in Outlook can fail or have problems just like with Outlook Express.

But in Outlook, files can become corrupted when you do something as simple as upgrade from one version of Microsoft Office to another.

Disk Doctors says:

“Outlook Mail Recovery Program is the most powerful program for repairing .pst files ever created. PST files are the core of the Microsoft Outlook and as such we have built a program to repair these damaged files regardless of how changed or damaged they may have become.”

I don’t know if it’s the most powerful EVER created, as that is quite a bold claim, but there are thousands of cases of people being quite glad that they used Disk Doctors Outlook Mail recovery program to get back their email.

Before we get into our review of Disk Doctors, I just want to reiterate that you should be backing up everything all the time. A friend’s home was recently burglarized, and he lost 5 years worth of work on stolen computers and hard drives.

We reviewed many backup services (for your whole computer), and ultimately ended up recommending Mozy, because from our contacting and reviewing three different backup companies, Mozy was the best.

That having been said, on to our Disk Doctors Review (for backing up email and other backup solutions).

The biggest problem people seem to have with Disk Doctors software is installing the software itself. Continue reading Disk Doctors Review

4 Reasons You Might Want to Read Someone Else’s Texts

Aside from the obvious privacy implications (which we’ll address in a later article), and leaving out the moral implications of whether or not it’s ok to read someone else’s texts (even if the person whose texts you’re reading is your boyfriend, girlfriend, partner or spouse), here are four reasons you may want to read someone else’s texts.

1. You suspect your boyfriend is texting or talking to his ex and (rather than just having an open conversation about it) you decide you want to know what kinds of texts he’s been sending to his ex.   We recommend an open conversation first, but reading his texts might be a good way to find out if he’s cheating.   Communicate first, but if you still suspect he’s lying, you could read his texts.  (The same goes if it’s your girlfriend sending texts to her ex).

2. You suspect your partner/spouse/wife is having an affair.  She seems to sneak off to have private texts and seems to delete all of her texts right away.  (This could also be the case with a husband.) Again, we recommend an open conversation first.  But if that fails, you can still read deleted texts using a device like the Cell Phone Spy.

3. You’ve found a wireless device or cell phone that doesn’t appear to belong to anyone, but you don’t trust the lost and found.  You want to return the to it’s rightful owner.  Reading someone else’s texts might give you an insight into finding out who the phone belongs to.

4. You think your employees are texting during the hours they should be working, or you think your employees are divulging company or trade secrets via text message.  NOTE: This only works if you own the cell phones as the company owner.  Reading the texts of one of your employees (if the phone doesn’t belong to you) could land you in a lot of trouble.  But if it’s a company cell phone, and the employee has signed a waiver to receive that cell phone, then reading the content of those texts could be within your reach as an employer.

Again, we believe that open communication is always best.

Work FIRST to find open ways of communicating and talking about your fears.

But, if that fails, one cool little device that will help you is called the Cell Phone Spy.

It is basically a USB SIM Card Reader with software built into it which allows you to read the texts stored on that SIM card.

The Cell Phone Spy includes Recovery Pro software which allows you to backup the phone’s contacts, view the last 10 numbers dialed, and of course, view all deleted SMS text messages.

Read deleted texts and see previous phone calls with the Cell Phone SpyIf you find yourself spying on the texts of your partner or significant other, communicate your fears first.

If you still need a way to read your boyfriend’s texts to his ex, check into Cell Phone Spy.

It’s a bit on the expensive side, but worth it if it gives you peace of mind.
