Roxio Creator 2011: Review and Coupon Code

We’ve already reviewed Roxio Creator and some of the cool features included with Roxio Creator 2011.

You should already know as well (from the above link) about the coupon code for Roxio Creator.

Today, we just want to review for you a bit of what we talked about, as well as talk about what we’ve found having had a bit more time to review how amazing and feature-rich Roxio Creator is.

Honestly, that is one of people’s biggest complaints with the program, and we can understand why. With so many features packed into one program, it can become easy to get lost or simply not be able to find the function or feature you really want.

While Roxio Creator does offer a lot of tools and features, we actually find that for all the complex things the program allows you to do, using the software is really quite simple (once you spend a little time with Creator and learn how to use it). Continue reading Roxio Creator Coupon Code

Backblaze Backups

Backblaze Backup does have a trial.

——————–

Backups from Backblaze are good for a variety of reasons.

Obviously backing up your computer and your files is always a good idea.

One reason why Backblaze Backup is good is that it lets you back up your files really fast. Backblaze has developed a really unique software powered by “FSCAN Engine.”

If you don’t know what that is, don’t worry about it. We don’t (really) know what an FSCAN Engine is either.

However, what’s important to know is that Backblaze software works to make sure your computer speed isn’t affected by the backups your computer is doing.

The speed of your backups will be limited only by the speed of your Internet connection.

A normal home connection (DSL or cable) can backup 2 – 4 GB per day online. That’s just the standard measurement.

However, if you want to regulate and use more (or less) of your bandwidth for backups, Backblaze lets you choose how much of your Internet connection should be used for backups.

Backblaze will also enable you to check the speed of your Internet connection. This is done through their Backblaze backup speed test, which will allows you to make sure that whatever percentage of your Internet you want Backblaze to use is allocated correctly.

While backing up your computer, you will still be able to do all the things you like to do online (like watching YouTube videos and downloading (legal) music).

If you’re taking advantage of the trial offered by Backblaze, it’s not a problem if you haven’t completed your first online backup. All you have to do is simply test a restore point, which you can do whenever.

One of the other things that is truly great about Backblaze is that you can access your files using any web browser. This means that if you backed up a PC, but you’re on a Mac now, that’s not a problem. Or let’s say you backed up at home, but you’re on vacation and forgot the file on your laptop, it’s easy to log in online and grab your files.

Backblaze will also store up to four weeks from previous file versions for you. This means that if you want an old version of Backblaze, all you have to do is go to the date of the file that you want and get the file you worked on last week.

Data Rescue 3 (for PC Windows Users)

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.

TurboCAD 17 Review

Save money on TurboCAD from this review:
http://www.identitytheftsecrets.com/turbocad-review-coupon
—————–

Our review:
Depending on which version of the program you get, TurboCAD 17 is basically a low-cost solution for anything you want a CAD program to do.

And from our review, it’s a good program which is up to the task, even if the views in the program are sometimes a bit difficult to understand at first.

If you want to landscape your yard but “view” it in advance of doing the work, remodel a room, build furniture conceptually before you build it physically, or just about any other DIY project, TurboCAD 17 gives you a great way to see what you’re going to be doing.

There are included video tutorials which can take a bit of time to go through, but they are very helpful. You’ll want to spend some time to learn TurboCAD 17 before digging right in, and the tutorials give you a great way to understand what you’re viewing when using the 2 dimensional tools.

As we’ve said, you will need to spend some time learning TurboCad 17, especially if you haven’t used a CAD program before. However, if you’re patient and take time for the tutorial, you can feel like a professional CAD designer pretty quickly.

We have just 1 negative from our review:
AutoCAD is a known program and as such, many videos and books have been made by third party users to show you how to do things in AutoCAD. Turbocad 17’s tutorials and books can be a bit more limited (the ones made by third parties… but the company tutorials are good).

Sure, if you want to spend the money for AutoCAD, there’s a larger community of people using the program, but because Turbocad is so much cheaper, it makes good sense to use to find out if you really have any need for the much more expensive (and slightly more complex) AutoCAD.

With TurboCAD 17, you get most of the features of AutoCAD without having to know all the computer gobbledygook to actually make the program do what you want it to do for you.

Backblaze Review

Even if they aren’t, from our review
you simply can’t beat unlimited backups from Backblaze.
http://www.identitytheftsecrets.com/backblaze-review
——————–

Ever since a friend of ours had his home broken into, we’ve been reviewing data backup services. We’ve not only been reviewing them for you though. We’ve also been reviewing data back up plans for ourselves and our family.

Today we are reviewing Backblaze, a company which takes an open source approach to their backup services, while keeping your data and information secure.

In short, our review has been very positive.

The first thing we noticed we needed to talk about in our review was Backblaze’s seemingly contradictory goals. To be a data security company with open source software seems to be somewhat of a conflict.

However, in the new age of information, one of the best ways to be secure is to give everyone equal access to the information and see what can be created by the world.

While realizing this for the software side of their business, Backblaze also recognizes the importance of keeping your data secure.

They seem to understand (as should all data backup companies) the high value your backups hold for you. We feel confident, after reviewing the data centers used by Backblaze, that this is a company you can feel good about.

Their data centers are used by companies like CNet, Esurance, and Sun Micro.

If the data center is good enough for those big companies, you will likely be very pleased with the data center’s ability to store your data securely as well.

So what about the actual workings of Backblaze software?

After reviewing BackBlaze, we found out that it is quite efficient. Backblaze will remove duplicate files. That’s great of course, but looking at your own storage space at Backblaze, what is more important is your ability to access your files quickly.

One way BackBlaze helps to access data quickly is how they compress your data.

Because their software is open source, some very creative features have been added into the software’s functionality. In addition to the compression ability of the software, Backblaze lets your online back up be done incrementally. This makes it as efficient as possible for you to have the data you need when you need it.

One nice thing about the de-duplication of Backblaze is that it’s also smart. If you have the same photo stored in a couple of places and Backblaze has de-duplicated one of your files, once you restore it again, that file will go back into both folders.

And if you are working on a project and making changes, Backblaze will let you restore from a few weeks ago or yesterday.

However, as far as your bandwidth is concerned, Backblaze will only back up the changes you’ve made to the file (making the drain on your bandwidth less).

When you want to restore, you simply pick what data needs to be restored. You can do this at the file level, the folder level, with multiple random files, or by restoring the entire backup.

And if you do need to restore from your backup, you simply download any files you need over the Internet, and of course that’s free (as it should be).

If you decide you want a hard copy of your files, just order your data on DVD for $99 or on USB drive(s) for $189.

Backblaze does some very interesting things for your data, including protecting it before, during, and after the point where it’s stored. An encryption is applied to all files on your computer before they are ever sent. In the sending phase, your data is sent to Backblaze using a connection that is encrypted. Once your data is actually at Backblaze’s servers, it sits there encrypted until you need to access it at some future point. And if you want to make doubly sure that this security holds, then by using your own private key you will add an additional layer over the top of the encryption to make sure you are the ONLY one who will have access to backed up files with Backblaze.

One of our favorite features of Backblaze is simply that it’s unlimited.

Mozy (another backup service) recently announced that they wouldn’t be offering an unlimited plan anymore, just days after we told you about Mozy on this site.

You can get an unlimited plan with Backblaze for the same price as Mozy charges for limited plan.

Both companies are good, but if you need a lot of storage space, you’ll likely want to go with Backblaze to save money.

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.

While there are many products now in the market for effective backup of personal computers and servers, Novabackup has taken one of the lead roles in the market.

In our review of the service, we found many users were quite pleased with what they were receiving for the amount they were paying.

This includes NovaBackup Professional (for home and small business users of Novastor) and Novabackup Server (for people running central computers in larger corporate environments).

During our review, we only did the install on Windows 7, but we found Novabackup Professional to be very easy to install. Continue reading Novabackup Review
