Data Recovery

A lot of software has been built to recover lost data from an electronic storage medium. Depending on how the data was lost, there are different approaches to its recovery method. Disk Drill Basic, Recuva, File Allocation Table, and Stellar Data Recovery are some of the data recovery software’s used today (Kao 1).  Data recovery software typically works by scouring the medium in question, recovering any bits of data and putting it back together in its original format.

When deleting a file on NTFS, go to my computer and depending on the operating system select on hard drives and partitions in your computer. Right click on the NTFS partition you want to delete and open the options panel then select delete. NTFS undelete program recovers files deleted from a computer’s internal hard drive even if they were emptied from the recycle bin (Kao 107). The software involved in the recovery is known as NTFS undelete and is available to a lot of people due to its free download status. What makes it more appealing is the fact that it is used and recommended by experts.

The reason for NTFS undeletes widespread use is chiefly because it can recover files of any formats. It also works with USB drives and SD cards. Works with a variety of data including FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, NTFS, and NTFS5 File Systems. It also uses SmartScan technology which in turn helps it recover photos with extremely high clarity. NTFS is also supported by windows working correctly in both 32 and 64-bit windows systems. Photographers chiefly prefer it due to its photo recovery capabilities and the fact that it can directly recover deleted or lost files from the user’s camera.

While NTFS is generally for windows users, EXT3 is used in other operating systems such as Linux which is preferred by programmers and is also used in an operating system known as Ubuntu. To delete EXT3 on Linux, one often requires a secure file removing tool. File removing devices such as My Distro can delete an EXT3 file on Linux but it does not delete the file well and at times may leave behind file extensions. Wipe however is very efficient in removing EXT3 files on a Linux operating system.

File recovery for EXT3 file relies heavily on the use of an external software in any operating system that the file is in. In this regard, one has first to select a data recovery software that can recover an EXT3 file. The chosen software must then be compatible with the operating system in place such as Linux and Ubuntu (Stepanov 105). Then, using the software and the steps, it entails one will be able to recover a deleted or lost EXT3 file. Great software that is also suitable to many operating systems used in the recovery of EXT3 data is the easeus. When using windows and you intend on recovering EXT3 file a utility referred to as DiskInternals Linux Recovery is used and apart from EXT3 can also recover EXT2 files. However, many other soft wares can be used to recover EXT3 files, and all that a user has to check out for is the compatibility of the selected software with the operating system in use. There ultimately so many software designed to recover data, a user must use one which works better for him or her in regards to his operating system.
