DiskTuna defrag and disk optimization
DiskTuna (formerly DiskTune) is a tiny and free disk defragmentation and optimization software, that will only run when you want it to. DiskTuna does not install background services or other crapware that slows the system down.
DiskTuna only runs on-demand. To make maintaining your hard disk using DiskTuna as accessible as possible, it can be used from a drive’s context menu or you can use a shortcut. DiskTuna offers an easy way to create shortcuts to defragmentation and optimization tasks. More about DiskTuna …
DIY Data Recovery Software
Series on DIY Data Recovery.
In this series I will write about recovering lost data yourself, some times called ‘do it yourself’ (DIY) data recovery. I’ll try to cover:
- Do’s and dont’s.
- Different approaches to recovering data.
- I’ll go over what you will need to do a data recovery yourself.
- I will describe a straight forward data recovery; a single disk situation.
- I will get into more complex scenarios and will review and test various data recovery programs.
The software used as a benchmark and in the various examples is iRecover, available from http://www.diydatarecovery.nl. If you order iRecover from DiskTuna you’ll receive a 25% discount: Buy iRecover with a 25% discount now!
Hard disks, disk utilities and data recovery are my passion!
I am currently working on a disk utility that will, eventually, offer DiskPatch like features in Windows (see http://www.diydatarecovery.nl for details on DiskPatch). For now, it displays S.M.A.R.T. data. I am currently implementing a Spinrite like disk scanner.
In the future I plan to review disk utility software.
