Although today's digital storage devices are far more reliable than they used to be, data loss remains a constant source of frustration and worry among home and business users alike. That's why having a proper backup and disaster recovery strategy has become mandatory in the workplace, as well as being highly advisable for individuals. After all, no matter how reliable your technology might be, there's always a risk of something going wrong. Sometimes, a power failure during a file transfer operation can be all it takes to lose important data. In most cases, however, human error is the culprit and, while essential, there's no such thing as a perfect backup or recovery system either. Sometimes, you need a last-resort option to recover data which has been lost just in case you don't have a current backup. Most people assume that formatting a drive or emptying the recycle bin is final, and that the files are gone for good. After all, operating systems usually warn you before you go ahead with the operation. Nonetheless, most of us have experienced that dreaded feeling of deleting a file or folder or formatting a storage volume only to find out moments too late that it was a mistake. Fortunately, there is a window of opportunity during which you should be able to get back what you lost. That's because the data isn't deleted during these operations. Only the entries pertaining to the deleted files in the file system are changed, thereby marking the space previously occupied by the files as available. That means the original data could be overwritten at any time but, until that happens, it is hidden on the disk. Active@ File Recovery 19 is a full-featured file recovery solution designed to exploit that opportunity by scanning any writable digital storage medium for recoverable data. Sometimes, it is even possible to recover data months or even years after it has been deleted. But it's always better to act fast to be on the safe side and avoid using the drive in the meantime. Active@ File Recovery works in its own self-contained operating environment, which allows you to recover data from a system drive without risking making any further modifications to it. Even if your computer won't start up at all, you can boot up and scan any connected drive for recoverable data. Ultimate users will have access to the latest version of Active@ Boot Disk, which has recently been upgraded to the WinPE version based on Windows 10 Build 1903 to provide a modern and familiar operating environment. Other improvements in this new edition of Active@ File Recovery 19 include an additional two predefined file signatures to support Canon Raw Images (CR3) and Finale Notation Files (MUSX). These file signatures allow you to look for deleted files in specific formats, which is important since the original filename and location will no longer be available. There's also an improved NTFS recovery, support for Windows Storage Spaces, and disks with sectors of 4KB. To make the process easier, the software is more stable with failing drives, and the welcome and registration screen has been overhauled. Find out more at https://www.file-recovery.com/recovery.html .
