What is Data Recovery?

What is Data Recovery?
Data recovery is the process of restoring data that has been lost, accidentally deleted, corrupted or made inaccessible.

In enterprise IT, data recovery typically refers to the restoration of data to a desktop, laptop, server or external storage system from a backup.

Data recovery can be performed on a variety of storage devices including internal storage drive of laptop or desktop, external hard disk drive, solid-state drive, USB flash drive, optical storage medium (CD/DVD/BD), and memory card (SD, SDHC, SDXC).

What causes Data  Loss?

What causes data loss?
Most data loss is caused by human error, rather than malicious attacks, human error accounted for almost two-thirds of the incidents reported. The most common type of breach occurred when someone sent data to the wrong person.

Other common causes of data loss include power outages, natural disasters, equipment failures or malfunctions, accidental deletion of data, unintentionally formatting a hard drive, damaged hard drive read/write heads, software crashes, logical errors, firmware corruption, continued use of a computer after signs of failure, physical damage to hard drives, laptop theft, and spilling coffee or water on a computer.

How Data Recovery works

The data recovery process varies, depending on the circumstances of the data loss.
Data recovery is possible because a file and the information about that file are stored in different places. For example, the Windows operating system uses a file allocation table to track which files are on the hard drive and where they are stored. The allocation table is like a book’s table of contents, while the actual files on the hard drive are like the pages in the book.

When data needs to be recovered, it’s usually only the file allocation table that’s not working properly. The actual file to be recovered may still be on the hard drive in flawless condition. If the file still exists — and it is not damaged or encrypted — it can be recovered. If the file is damaged, missing or encrypted, there are other ways of recovering it. If the file is physically damaged, it can still be reconstructed.

So, when data is deleted or a drive is formatted, the data is not removed from the storage drive. Rather, the data remains intactin the storage medium in an inaccessible state ready to be overwritten by new data. This marooned data can be retrieved by using a data recovery software that uses file signatures to scan the entire storage drive bit by bit. You can then preview and select the required data from the scanned items and recover them to a distinct storage drive to avoid overwriting. In case the data that you are trying to recover is overwritten or corrupt, it can’t be fixed by a data recovery software.

What Are the Best Precautions Against Data Loss? 

The best precaution against data loss is to back up your data to an external backup drive. This can be done either manually or by using the native backup app provided in your operating system; for instance, use File History for Windows or Time Machine for mac OS. For data that you have saved on your external storage device without its copy on your computer, you must create its back up to yet another external medium manually or clone it using cloning software.

The best way to back up is to follow a 3-2-1 backup plan. This plan requires you to create at least 3 copies of your critical data, 2 copies on different storage media, and 1 copy on an offsite storage location.

For offsite storage, you can rely on cloud space (OneDrive, iCloud, etc.) Back up the specific folder containing all your critical files to a cloud drive. Cloud storage ensures you can retrieve important data from any computer by logging in to your cloud account using the Internet. Enterprises can go for virtual cloud space to store huge amounts of data and make it accessible throughout various servers so that it can be accessed from anywhere in the world.

By following the 3-2-1 backup plan, you increase data availability even if the primary source becomes inaccessible or fails permanently, or the backup drive itself has turned corrupt or damaged. Also, check the consistency of your backup source, as it boosts up the chances of immediate data restoration during data loss disaster.

In case you don’t have a backup and you lost your data, the best precaution that you need to take to avoid data loss is to stop using the computer or the external storage device immediately to prevent any overwriting—until you recover your data.

Unreliable Data Recovery Tricks
Don’t trust any non-reliable tricks to get back your data from a non-working or physically failed storage drive. Because unreliable tricks make the situation worse and create new challenges for successful data recovery. For instance, don’t put the failed hard drive into the freezer of your refrigerator to make it accessible from a computer. This trick may or may not work but might result in permanent data loss. It’s better not to use such a trick to keep your hope alive of accessing your drive and data.

Also, major data recovery industry leaders have reported that many end-users have lost their data permanently by employing unreliable data recovery techniques—like opening the case of a storage device to change the failing equipment or connecting the drive directly to the motherboard so that it can be accessed. These actions have created new challenges for the data recovery industry and have aroused great concerns for the safety of user’s data.

Learn How To Clear Browser Cache on Laptops.

Do you remember the last time you’ve cleared the cache on your MacBook or other Apple device? If you never have or it’s been longer than you can remember, it’s not a bad idea to set a reminder to perform this simple maintenance task every now and again. Cached files store up in your browsing system whenever you browse the internet. Too many cached files can eventually wreak havoc on your operating system and slow it down over time. No matter which browsing platform you use, cleaning up your browser data only takes a few minutes of your time at most. Follow the guidelines below to learn more about cached files and how to clear browser cache on Mac laptops.

WHAT IS BROWSER CACHE?

Each time you hop on the internet, your laptop downloads and stores browsing cache to spare you time on your next browsing session. This process prevents your device from downloading the same files every time you visit the same webpage. Saved cache files can include videos, images, scripts, and other media files.

WHY CLEAR CACHE ON YOUR MAC?

Cached data helps web pages load more quickly when you visit a site more than once. Unfortunately, too many cached files on your laptop can cause your browsing system to lag over time. Chances are, you won’t need to return to every site you’ve browsed in the past. It’s best to perform routine maintenance by clearing the stored website data out every so often using the processes below.

HOW TO CLEAR BROWSING DATA IN SAFARI

To start, open Safari. Once you’re in your Safari browser, double click on the Safari menu in your drop-down menu bar and select Preferences. Some users prefer holding down Command-Comma(,) as a shortcut to get here.

Next, navigate to the Advanced tab. Check the Show Develop menu box in the menu bar and close out your Preferences window. Then, head back to the menu bar. Click on the Develop menu > Empty Caches. You can also use Command-Option-E as a shortcut.

HOW TO CLEAR BROWSER CACHE IN GOOGLE CHROME

First, open Chrome and click on the three vertical dots in the upper-righthand corner. Then, choose Settings. Once you’re in the Settings menu, click on Privacy and security on the left side of your screen.

To proceed, select Clear browsing data. Under the Time range, you’ll have the option of clearing data anywhere from the last hour, last 24 hours, last seven days, last four weeks, or All time. Ensure the Browsing history check box is selected, along with the Cached image and files box, before clicking on Clear Data.

HOW TO EMPTY CACHE IN FIREFOX

Begin by navigating to the Browser History tab in your menu bar, and click on Clear Recent History. Like in Chrome, you’ll have a time range to pick and choose from. Once you’ve chosen your time range, double-check that the box next to cache is selected. To finish, click on OK in the bottom right corner.

Cache clearing can differ slightly depending on your specific laptop and web browser. Get in touch with PC Expert Services for more troubleshooting tips and advice. From regular tune-ups to file cleaning and more, we’re here to help you prolong the life of your Apple device!

Five great ways to strengthen your password security

Five great ways to strengthen your password security

A major password hack is in the news every few weeks; most times, the main reason is (simply) weak passwords. Don’t want to be a victim of the next hack? In this blog, we’ll take a look at five easy steps that you can take to make your passwords stronger.
Five great ways to strengthen your password security

Many people are still using the simple passwords they created in the early 2000s. Getting hacked wasn’t such a huge concern for organizations and their employees. However, as we become even more connected as a society, there is an increase in the risk that threat actors pose. For example, quoted in our article regarding the role of remote access in cyberattacks, brute force guessing of passwords was a factor in 78% of all ransomware attacks.

A simple look at the most common passwords in 2021 should make any security expert’s skin crawl. We have a problem when 123456 (and the “more secure” 123456789) are the only ones more used than qwerty. Nobody wants to (or even can) remember the long random letter and number combinations. After all, it’s much quicker to tap in the same old password for everything – and to be very clear, this is a practice you shouldn’t be doing under any circumstances!

The most common passwords haven’t changed much. Their ongoing prevalence makes it a cakewalk for hackers to break in. So what can your company and your employees do about it?

1. Use a password manager.
2. Use Multi-Factor Authentication everywhere.
3. Don’t share passwords, no matter what.
4. Check for previous hacks and delete your old accounts.
5. Avoid public Wi-Fi.

We have a problem when 123456 (and the “more secure” 123456789) are the only ones more used than qwerty. Nobody wants to (or even can) remember the long random letter and number combinations. After all, it’s much quicker to tap in the same old password for everything – and to be very clear, this is a practice you shouldn’t be doing under any circumstances!

The most common passwords haven’t changed much. Their ongoing prevalence makes it a cakewalk for hackers to break in. So what can your company and your employees do about it?

1. Use a password manager.
2. Use Multi-Factor Authentication everywhere.
3. Don’t share passwords, no matter what.
4. Check for previous hacks and delete your old accounts.
5. Avoid public Wi-Fi.

1. Use a password manager

 

Passwords are a pretty vulnerable security measure, but they’re unavoidable in most cases. You can, however, take steps to minimize the risk they pose.

A good password manager eliminates the need to create and remember complex passwords. It will generate a random, unique password when needed. You can then save it in an encrypted vault to use whenever you need it. Ideally, all passwords should generate strong, “makes-no-sense-if-you-read-it” combinations.

Not only does this make it harder to crack into your account by brute force, but if one account becomes compromised, your others are still safe.

Users only need to remember the password manager’s password. Make sure it is a strong one that only you know. Some password manager apps can also use your smartphone’s biometric sensors to unlock. Personally, Bitwarden has proved to be a great choice, but there are many great options that your organization can deploy.

2. Use Multi-Factor Authentication everywhere

 

Using a password alone is like locking the doors but leaving all your windows open. You may have closed the easiest route, but the intruder can still get inside with a bit of work.

Most accounts will use multi-factor authentication (MFA). Once you have entered your password, you will get a code/link via text or email with MFA. You can also generate the code in a secure app (or approve the login). You will need to enter it to prove you are the account’s legitimate owner.

From a remote access perspective, MFA is a crucial step in ensuring that safety is at the forefront of remote sessions and that the users connecting to different devices are who they say they are.

While texting or emailing a code is the most common second factor used in MFA, they aren’t the only options. Multi-factor authentication can combine multiple credentials that are unique to the user, such as:

  • Something the user knows – a password or the answer to a pre-set question.
  • Something the user carries to authenticate – a card or key fob.
  • Something unique to the user – a fingerprint or facial recognition.

The benefit of adding a second layer of security is that the password is not enough to access an account. Even if an attacker has it, there is another obstacle to accessing the account. The benefits of MFA being part of your remote access strategy are immense.

And since we were mentioning password managers, make sure that you choose one that uses MFA – enable it and always use it!

3. Don’t share passwords, no matter what

 

While this might be obvious, many hacks happen because users tend to share passwords. And this has started occurring much more often since we all use streaming services. For example, more than a quarter of Netflix’s UK subscribers share their passwords. Since many users are likely to use the same passwords, many hacks are waiting to happen (let’s hope that at least they use MFA on their other accounts).

Additionally, if you can impose a password policy for your users, make it a complex one. Employees might not be pleased when having to change or remember passwords, but the long-term gains and extra security are second to none.

4. Check for previous hacks and delete your old accounts

 

Remember signing up for that random account ten years ago to enter a competition? Neither do we, but did you know that website got hacked in 2015? The more accounts your employees have, the more vulnerable your organization is to external risks – especially if you’ve used the same password everywhere.

You can check if your email address shows up in any data breaches at haveibeenpwned.com and sign up to get an alert when new breaches happen. A seasonal purge of old accounts will remove the burden of potential future attacks, leaving your company feeling more at ease.

5. Avoid public wi-fi

 

The internet has become so integrated with almost every aspect of our lives that in 2016 the UN declared internet access a basic human right. Public Wi-Fi is everywhere and a key player in compromising password security. On top of that, life beyond 2020 means flexible working is here to stay for many companies, indicating employees will have more freedom regarding where they work – from a coffee shop, a commuter train, or even an airport.

However, if you’re concerned about your company’s data security, you might want to advise not to connect every time a Wi-Fi notification pops up. When it comes to public Wi-Fi, there is no way of knowing who may be monitoring the session, from the URLs visited through to the keystrokes that users input.

The best way to browse risk-free is not to use public Wi-Fi, but sometimes it’s unavoidable when the 5G signal is non-existent.

Many reputable VPNs are available if public Wi-Fi is a must, even for smartphones. They will add an extra layer of security to keep data safe, especially for corporate devices.

Completely bulletproof security doesn’t exist. Taking all the steps available to protect data puts your organization in the next best position. If you are using a remote access solution, ensure it is secure and that it offers encryption on all connections, rich session permissions, and granular access control.

Cybercriminals will always look for new ways to weasel their way in, keeping us all on our security toes. It’s for us to make sure that they fail to succeed.

Fix OOBEKEYBOARD Error During Windows 10 Installation

How to fix the OOBE error that may occur during Windows 10 install.

OOBE stands for “Out Of Box Experience” which is a type of install designed to make things easy when a customer switches on their brand new computer.

The following instructions apply if you are installing a fresh copy of Windows 10 on an older computer and run into this error.

(If you receive the OOBE error on a brand new computer, consider switching off and returning it to the vendor).

How To Fix OOBEKEYBOARD Error
1. Open Command Promt
When you are on the screen that displays the OOBEKEYBORD error, press Shift + F10 to open the command prompt.

2. Type the following command lines, followed by Enter after each one. Changing user_name & password to your own.

net user Administrator /active:yes
net user /add user_name password
net localgroup administrators user_name /add (skip if new Windows 10 install)
cd %windir%\system32\oobe
msoobe.exe

3. Shutdown the computer & switch back on.
On entering the command to run msoobe.exe the message “Just A Moment” may hang on the screen. Force shutdown (press & hold power button) and start back up.

4. Once Windows Loads, Sign out of Administrator
Log out of the Administrator account and sign in to your own newly created local account.

5. Mark Administrator To Active:No
Once signed in to your own account, open command prompt as Admin and enter the following command:
net user Administrator /active:no

What These Instructions Have Just Done:
We have bypassed the part of the installation that asks for region, keyboard, network setup etc. This will all have to be corrected.

Go in and select the correct region, enter your network details and begin manually running Windows Updates.

What we have done is open up the (normally inactive) Administrator account to be able to manually add user details and progress with signing in.

It is strongly advised completing the above Step 5 and marking the Administrator account as inactive once you have gained access. You may need this account intact at a later date, or your tech support people may need this left alone to carry out future repairs.

What to Do If Computer or Hard Drive Makes Buzzing or Grinding Noise?

What to Do If Computer or Hard Drive Makes Buzzing or Grinding Noise?

What to Do If Computer or Hard Drive Makes Buzzing or Grinding Noise?
computer-over-heating
Sometime when you are working on your laptop or desktop; very random noises start coming from hard drives. Like buzzing noise, grinding noise, or clicking noise coming from hard drives. This can be very irritating and you may start wondering about the reason for the hard drive noise. There may be some other random type of noises coming from your drive.
Clicking Noise from Hard Drive
Head Stuck Noise from Hard Drive
What are the Reasons for Hard Drive Grinding Noise?

There are two possible reasons for grinding noise coming from Hard Drive or the computer. Let’s look at each:

Reason 1: Firstly, the buzzing or grinding noise could be because of the CPU FAN. FAN is embedded to cool down the heated system and prevent overheating damages. There are computers designed to run all the fans simultaneously and at the maximum speed initially. This is to check if the fans are working properly and to remove the accumulated dust. The speed of one fan is not strong enough to remove the dust; hence we need multiple fans to operate simultaneously.

If there is something that obstructs the normal functioning of these fans in the PCs. It could be their blades hitting each other as they do not necessarily spin at an even pace. Therefore, resulting in a grinding noise. If this is the reason, you can easily detect it. It requires you just to open your computer and check the blades of the fans, whether or not they hit each other when in the running mode.

Reason 2: Secondly, it could be the grinding noise from the hard disk. In fact, this indicates something bad or negative, and you should be worried about this. The reason being, severe internal damage is what may follow. To be specific, the grinding noise from the HDD is a symptom of the hard drive failure in the future. This indicates that components in the hard drive have turned faulty.

Effects of Hard Disk Drive Failure

If the HDD in your computer fails, all the data stored on it becomes inaccessible or is lost. This indeed is a big setback. Nothing can be worse than losing access to all your important data. Therefore, you should fix the hard drive grinding noise issue before it leads to complete hard drive failure. A hard drive failure will result in a data loss situation. Even if you have a failed hard disk, you should take the necessary steps to recover the lost or inaccessible HDD data.

Steps Towards Hard Drive Recovery When it Started Making Weird Noise

Now that you are aware of the effects of a hard disk buzzing or grinding noise. Let’s now look at the methods to recover the lost data from hard drive:

1: Backup and restore all your hard drive data – Soon after you detect that the grinding noise is from the hard disk of your computer, the first and foremost step that you should take is getting a backup of all your data. You can take backup on any external or removable media storage. This backup file is of great use to restore data when the hard drive fails.

2: Use Hard Drive Recovery Software – Using quality and proven Hard Drive recovery software is another way to regain all lost data. You can employ this method of using data recovery software in several conditions. e.g.

Deleted data
Lost backup data from an external drive
Corrupted data
Virus-infected data

Note: Data recovery software only works on working hard drive. So you can use DIY software before your hard drive becomes dead due to physical damage.

3: Go for Hard Drive Recovery Service – Another way to recover data from failed hard disk is via professional Hard Drive recovery services from a reputed data recovery service provider. The one that you choose must guarantee that you should get back your complete lost data. PC Expert Services Data Recovery is the professional data recovery service provider in Orange County.

However, if you have a failed backup or do not have the backup at all. You can opt for software in the comfort of your home or office. You can use data recovery software for your Windows and Mac provided your hard disk is detecting. If that is not the case, then contact PC Expert Services for professional assistance.
