Many individuals who are familiar with Linux file system would say “Ext3 does remove the Inode information of a file, and it is difficult to recover deleted data from Ext3 file system” when a normal data recovery application isn’t able to recover files then how a normal photo recovery application would be able to recover files from a Linux file system. Yes this is correct that Ext3 does remove the Inode information but it is quite easier to get the file out of ext2 (if we know more about file internals) to find out “bof” and “eof” of a specific file types (if it is stored contiguously). However recovery is still possible from ext3 in similar fashion.
New data recovery software designed to assist with a variety of operations – including hard drive data recovery – can help when disaster strikes. Disk Doctors has launched Digital Media Recovery, a powerful software is designed to retrieve deleted, or corrupted, files from Memory Cards, USB Storage devices and hard drives.
What if you were to accidentally delete the photos and videos from your wedding? What if the memory card with your holiday pictures were to suddenly stop working? Or what if your entire collection of mp3 files were to get wiped out by mistake? And all without a back-up?
“In a digital age when most of us depend on digital media to store our memories, our music, we are prone to situations like those above. That is, sometimes, the stuff nightmares are made of,” said Omer Faiyaz, VP Marketing with Disk Doctors. “Today, most of us believe in just posting picture files onto a Snapfish or a Picasa, instead of printing them out in a time-honored fashion, or storing music on a memory card that can be slotted into a phone for easy listening. And with the convenience come all of those little slips that can lead to information loss. In some cases the loss is trivial, so we are not too inconvenienced. But often the it is extremely important, either personally or professional.”
This application comes packed with advanced features, an easy-to-use interface, and has support for RAW photographic files. A must-have for SOHOs, Corporates and professional photographers.
Features for this version include a fast thumbnail-viewer, enhanced support for RAW formats as well as an option to burn recovered files directly onto CD / DVD media (this last feature depends on the options permitted by your hardware).
For music and video files, the new application is equipped with a specially crafted retrieval engine that can identify each fragment of a lost or deleted mp3 or mpeg (mpg) file; it creates a virtual map to determine the file size that results in a working file, whereas existing retrieval applications recoup only fragments or parts of music and video files.
The currently launched version of the software reclaims lost or deleted pictures, music and video files from Memory Sticks, Flash Cards, Sony Memory Stick, IBM Micro Drive, SD Cards, MMC Cards, XD Cards, Secure Digital Card, Zip Disks and Mini Disks. It comes specially designed with support for all major camera brands - Nikon, Canon, Olympus, Sony & Minolta, among others.

The company recently launched new data recovery software designed to assist with a variety of operations – including hard drive data recovery.
Data Recovery Software is very common word now, computer users around the world are aware that if data is lost there is a workaround to recover data. With the advent of new applications and computerization around the world, there is an exponential growth of information, and the ever-growing need of storage capacity. Per GB storage cost has decreased but data loss today still is a problem despite various techniques in place to safeguard data. Some of the techniques and policies implemented or planned today are:
a) Anti -Virus Software
b) NAS & SAN Storages having RAID (RISC based techniques).
d) Disaster management policy or Business continuity plans
They if implemented successfully would minimize the chances of data loss, however this is not the case, despite having these procedures and techniques enterprises are continuously facing data loss scenarios and there is nothing to mention about home user having a laptop or a standalone desktop PC is most vulnerable to loss of files due to accidental deletion, hardware or software malfunctions.
These options have various demerits, which obviously we are not going to discuss, rather we would try and evaluate disk recovery software, file recovery software, photo recovery software, media recovery software a whole lot of recovery applications around and would try and see how effective they are?
This website would highlight easy intuitive interface, data recovery tools that are designed not only to undelete accidentally deleted files or partitions but which recovers your data after accidental format of your drive, power failure, virus attack, software failure, or after deleting files, folders or partitions.
