Tracing and Recovering Files Through DIY Data Recovery Software

A customer phoned in about his issue with RAID drives over his Mac Pro. His main problem was composed of the software RAID drives that were not recoverable. He told us that he tried a lot of possible fixes to the problem and that he also tried other software and programs to retrieve his files however they all failed. He then came across one of our software which is that Data Rescue 3 that is designed for Mac computers. Although he was a lot more confident in using this software, he wasn’t sure how to perform the necessary scans considering that the drives were configured as software RAID over his own OS. As soon as we got the details, we immediately assisted him in running the necessary scans.

After a few days, he called back and he stated that he was unsure on how to go about recovering his files. He tried opening some of the files but unfortunately, he got some pop up messages and errors and found that the files with corrupted and were already lost. I then assisted him in fixing this issue and recommended a few steps to take in order to retrieve his files. After a few tries and steps as well as browsing a files, we succeeded in recovering the files and he was happy to find his files back up again.

Digital and computer forensics is a growing field, and one that every IT professional should try to understand.

15kg Kitty Finds New Home

Fat cat Symba from Washington had a big wake up call this week when his previous owner dropped him off at the Humane Rescue Alliance centre after they couldn’t take him to their new assisted living centre – prompting staff to kick-start a strict diet plan for the podgy pussy.

Thankfully Symba, who gets out-of-breath every few steps, will be moving into a new home next week. Symba has 7kgs to lose before he reaches his goal of 8kgs. Part of the kitty’s new regime will be a cat-friendly exercise wheel and tricky food puzzles designed to make it impossible for him to feast on a whole bowl at once. The 6-year-old is currently bigger than a tiger cub, but his soft-touch has won over staff at the rescue centre, who have delighted Twitter users this week with a picture diary of the feline’s progress. 

It took just one day for Symba to find a new home. Speaking to WTTG, one of his new owners vowed to do what was necessary to get the kitty back into shape.

“We’re talking about putting his food on the other side of the room so he’s got to kind of work just a little bit to get his food and then take it from there. It’s kind of new territory for us. Our other two cats are normal sized”.

Trump on Twitter ‘I’m Being Investigated’


Trump in a series of tweets yesterday , 16th June has said that he is being investigated for Firing the FBI director and whether he’s campaign colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election.
Trump in is tweet said ” I’m being investigated for Firing the FBI director by the man who told me to fire the FBI director! Witch Hunt.” It is unclear that who is he pointing the finger to.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the investigation and deputy Attorney General Rob Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller to observe it in the week of Coney’s ouster. At the time Trump fired Comey, Rosenstein made a note accusing the FBI director of misfeeding the investigation into Hillary Clinton mail server. Sessions that time also wrote a letter saying dismissal was warranted.

He’s some tweets from Trump’s last evening tweet-brust
“After 7 months of investigations & committee hearings about my “ collusion with Russians,” nobody has been able to show any proof. Sad!”

“You are witnessing the single greatest WUTCH HUNT in American politics Al history – led by some very bad and conflicted people! #MAGA”

” They made up a phony collision with the Russians​ story, found zero proof, so now they go for obstruction of justice on the phony story. Nice”

Trump is very active on Twitter since his campaign for 2016 election and he made very strong speeches over the years that rolled over the news media frequently.
