Method to restore folders on windows operating system

Losing one’s data due to deletion is one of the worst conditions of data loss because it is generally caused due to users own mistake, which leaves pc user to remorse upon his action for some days. Generally people have self-acclaimed belief that when any file or folder surpasses recycle bin it can never be recovered. But this is not an actual circumstance because whenever any file is erased from file system only the pointer to the stored data is wiped out. After deleting the pointer file system sends a message to the operating system that the previously allocated place can be awarded to any new file or folder. So any user may perform Windows recovery for such folders within a period of deletion and overwrite of data by use of Recover Windows.

Folders or files from windows hard drive may get erased due to a variety of reasons such as accidental deletion from the command prompt, partitioning error, emptying of recycle bin, Virus attack, application of shift delete command, file system corruption, etc. Virus attack is one of the prominent reasons for data loss from any hard disk. Virus transmits into computer due variety of reason such as coming in contact with infected external drive, e-mail or through the internet. Let’s have a real-time example of virus intrusion. Suppose you have portable hard drive using which you have recently collected a lot of movies. When such an infected hard drive was connected to your computer, some of the virus hopped inside your PC. When it was restarted later it couldn’t boot, so what has happened?? The virus which intruded into your system made whole of the hard drive corrupted, thus making any data inaccessible. In such situation, a question arises that is “How can I recover deleted folders?” This task can be easily achieved by use of Recover Windows which rigorously scans entire hard drive and recoups them within few minutes of its application.

Recover Windows has one of the best user interfaces that can be easily applied by any user whether he is novice or professional. This software meets the requirements of consumers who use a different version of windows operating the system such as Windows 10, 8, 7, XP and Vista. One of the other advantages of using this software is that it is compatible to be used on Fat file system as well as Ntfs file system i.e. data can be recovered from the hard disk of a system and an external drive. Files which gets misplaced from a stored location or it is hidden within hard disk can be restored by usage of this software. This tool has also the capability to recover files which are deleted from a command prompt.  Data lost due to damaged MBR can be retrieved by the implementation of this proficient application.

But data recovery can be achieved in an optimal way only if certain things are taken proper care before implementing Recovery Windows like avoiding format or reformat of drive, usage of drive from where data is to be restored should be minimized and downloading and installation of software should be done on other drives so that overwriting doesn’t occur. This tool is proficient in many other aspects which can be checked out by usage of a demo version of this tool.

How to Encrypt Files and Folders Using BitLocker Drive Encryption?

How to Encrypt Files and Folders Using BitLocker Drive EncryptionWhen we talk about security and theft of data, there is actually very little option available. Open source encryption facilities are not fully trustworthy. Now you are fully dependable on Windows BitLocker encryption technology.

What is BitLocker?

BitLocker is a drive encryption program designed by Microsoft that provides data protection for your computer. It uses data encryption technology to encrypt all data stored on the Windows volume. Suppose your computer is stolen, or if you don`t want someone else to access your computer, you can use BitLocker to encrypt all files on fixed data drives.


Windows computers running on Windows Vista or 7 Ultimate, Windows Vista or 7 Enterprise, Windows 8.1 Pro, or Windows 8.1 Enterprise supports BitLocker.


BitLocker runs on above mention Windows OS versions; additionally you will require at least two partitions and a Trusted Platform Module (TPM).

A TPM is a microchip inbuilt on computer, used to store cryptographic information, such as encryption keys. Information stored on TPM is secured and safe from third party software attacks and physical theft.

TPM platform is used to protect Windows OS and user data, in case someone tries to tamper your computer when it is left unattended, lost or stolen.

Inside the working process

Your computer will   be protected by encrypting the entire Windows volume.

For this Windows uses TPM to lock the encryption keys that protects the data. TPM verifies the encryption keys whenever someone tries to access your computer. Encrypting the entire volume protects all of the data, including the operating system itself, the Windows registry, temporary files, and the hibernation file. Because the keys needed to decrypt data remain locked by the TPM, an attacker cannot read the data just by removing your hard disk and installing it in another computer.

On computers without TPM compatibility, encryption can be still possible but not with the added security that is possible with TPM platform.

Most people don`t know that there is alternative of BitLocker called EFS (Encrypting file system). Difference between EFS and BitLocker is that EFS is used to encrypt files on single user per basis while with BitLocker you can encrypt the entire drive. Continue reading about EFS. They have provided comprehensive information about the software and how to use BitLocker to encrypt a folder.
