How to Recover Deleted files using Wondershare Data Recovery Tool

Loss of data has always been a serious problem for individuals as well as giant companies. With most of the data being stored on computers these days, loss of it can mean very serious trouble. To help with this kind of situation, there are many data recovery utilities available today, of which many are freeware.  Wondershare data recovery is a wonderful tool for recovering data which is hardly recoverable to any of the other tools we have used. It has the ability to recover data which was lost by formatting, which many of the other tools can’t do properly. The first thing you’ll notice about this software is its clean interface which is pretty easy to navigate. It is also designed to be user friendly so that people with varied computer skills can use it easily.
Wizard mode & Standard mode
How to recover deleted files

                                                                    Wondershare data recovery utility has a recovery wizard which helps anyone easily recover their lost files without much technical expertise. The wizard asks you two simple questions and takes care of the rest of the job. However, you can skip the wizard and use the standard mode if you are an advanced user. The standard mode has four recovery modules which are Lost file recovery, Partition recovery, Raw file recovery and Resume recovery. So, the software is literally made to suit any type of users regardless of their computer skills.

Lost File Recovery

If you simply deleted a file from one of your drives and want to recover it, this is the option to select. It can recover most of the files that were lost from deletion or by formatting. It finds files from a hard disk partition or removable disks. You can enable deep scan in this module to improve chances of finding your file but it consumes much more time than the quick scan. Deep scan is especially better for finding files lost as a result of formatting the drive. After the scan is complete, the found files are classified according to the file types for ease of browsing. You can either opt to recover them all or simply select a certain file type. The tool asks you for the destination folder and voila, you get your files back!

Partition Recovery

This feature is especially helpful if your files were lost from a deleted, resized or damaged partition. It does a complete scan on your physical hard drive and reports with any lost or damaged partitions from which you can start recovering files.  Recovery of files from damaged partitions is a life saver feature and it does the job really well. It can scan NTFS, FAT32, FAT16 and exFAT file systems on the drive. We could recover a far lost linux partition on a system using this feature and it’s really impressive.

Raw File Recovery

If the previous scans could not find your lost files, don’t worry yet. You can use the raw file recovery module to do a power scan which is more efficient and finds more number of files. It takes comparatively more time than the regular scan but it is definitely worth the time. The raw file recovery mode does not show the file names and path during the scan but recovers them as such. It actually finds files that are usually unrecoverable by other recovery tools that we have tried. I personally see this as the best feature of wondershare data recovery, it actually works wonders.

Resume Recovery

Resume recovery helps you pause a recovery session at any time and continue it later on at your ease. This is a really a cool feature since data recovery may sometimes eat too much time than we can afford. All you have to do is pause the recovery session and save it. You can resume from this session by going to the Resume module. This is also a cool feature of wondershare which I haven’t seen on many other tools.
                                                                        So, wondershare data recovery is one best of its class software if you are looking for a reliable data recovery solution.  We found features like ‘file type grouping’ and ‘resume recovery’ very helpful and handy.  It has a neat interface and an easy to use recovery wizard to help anyone get their files back without much hassle.

Samsung Galaxy S5 Camera Review

Samsung came up with the latest iteration of their Galaxy S series and called it the Galaxy S5. It is the meanest, most powerful device in the series yet and it comes with a bunch of additions and improvements. The list of features expected from this device was quite long and it wasn’t exactly something dazzling when it came out. It adds features like a fingerprint scanner to make it safer and the heart rate monitor to keep track of your fitness. The hardware is powerful as compared to the previous devices and apart from the basic hardware, they have worked on the camera as well.  





 Sensor

The Galaxy S5 has got a camera with slightly higher resolution as compared to the Galaxy S4. It has an f/2.2 lens and an equivalent focal length of 31mm. the camera resolution is up to 16 from 13 which doesn’t seem like a huge upgrade. It is the same story with the size of sensors as well. The size of sensor has gone up slightly from S4’s 1/3.06 to 1/2.6 on this. While the sensor is larger, it doesn’t exactly translate into larger pixel size because of the increased resolution. The pixel size is a very mobile-ish 1.12 micron so you might not get an impressive low light performance. It features a new ISOCELL sensor which is something new after the Sony sensors they have been using for a while. The ISOCELL sensor is based on an entirely new architecture. It creates physical barriers between sensor pixels. This helps in reducing the crosstalk. This way you can raise the ISO level without inducing too much noise in the image. They claim that the crosstalk is down by almost 30 percent and the actual images justify their claims.

Phase Detect Auto Focus

You might have heard people talking about the insanely fast auto focus system on the Galaxy S5. Well this is because it uses Phase Detect autofocus. This is something we have seen first time on a mobile phone. In a standard contrast detect system; the camera tries to obtain the best contrast of the area in focus. Rest of the region hasn’t got contrast as good as the region in focus. While this system is effective, it takes a while to obtain a good focus. This is because it first goes beyond point of good focus and then tracks back once it has compared different points. You might have noticed this effect while focussing on your mobile phone. The image becomes crisp and then blurs before it reaches the crisp point again. This system also fails to work properly when the contrast is low. This might happen in case of a very bright or very dark frame. The phase detection system requires separate hardware and can be implemented in different ways. This system has been seen on various dedicated camera and while many of them use translucent mirrors to implement this, there are no mirrors on the Galaxy S5 and it is done with the help of extra lenses. The light being sent to the sensor passes through multiple plastic lens elements. When the focusing element is in the right place and image is in focus, the light from ends of the front lens will converge properly on the sensor. If that is not the case, light from the ends of front lens would not converge properly on the sensor. The phase detection would filter out the light received from these edges to see how much they are off their phase. This helps it determine the exact amount of adjustment required to get a sharp focus. The focusing element is moved and as soon as the light information is correct, it will signal to notify that the image is in focus. This system eliminates the need of going beyond the focus point making it faster than contrast detection. It can also perform better in condition where the frame has got low contrast. But the issue here is that it relies on specific lenses that are present above the sensor. This limits the number of focus points that you get. Samsung has kept it a secret about how many auto focus points it has got.

Image quality

While Samsung has done some good with the focus thing, they have left out the optical image stabilisation. Instead it relies on some software method for that. The photos that you obtain are crisp in daylight. If you compare it to galaxy S4, the differences are not very prominent but still they are present. The photos are slightly less sharp in the corners but that is something you might not notice at all. Unlike the Galaxy S4, it doesn’t increase the sharpness much. While focusing, it uses both phase and contrast detection to speed up the process and it is a good deal faster than other high end devices. The difference is very prominent when focusing on close objects as compared to objects far from you. In low light, the camera should be a star because of the normal pixel size. Well they have taken some measures to ensure that it performs well. In auto mode, the software picture stabilisation kicks in as soon as the intensity of light drops below a certain level. It then captures a series of images to merge together and form a single image. If the subject moves while shooting, it discards certain frames that don’t fit in. overall it is a decent performer in low light but not as good as the best devices out there. The HDR mode on this device is pretty good as well. It is quick, thanks to the fast camera software and powerful hardware. The results that you obtain look very natural and you can’t tell that it is a layered picture. The macro shots are decent as well because it is able to focus easily on objects that are very close to it. Author Bio: The author has great interest in handset and technology reviews. Currently he is working with 91mobiles

Pinterest Content Marketing Tips for Newbie Pinners

The first thing that comes to mind when you think of Pinterest is images. We live under the impression that the one thing that Pinterest is good at is social media marketing, but this is not entirely true. When used correctly Pinterest can become a valuable ally for content marketing strategies. Nevertheless, in order to provide your business or blog with a positive direction, you must create a plan beforehand. With over 27 million unique visitors, and 220 million page views, Pinterest is definitely one of the rising stars of social media, so it is essential to leverage your presence on it. Here are five great tricks that will help you with content marketing:

 
1. Make use of pinterest analytics to track people

One of the things that we really love about Pinterest, is its free analytics software. With it you can keep a close eye on your business, and access important data. There is also a paid version of the tool which offers even more in-depth statistics. We recommend that you use Pnleague, a software that will evaluate not only the popularity of your pins, but also images from your site. With it you can check which of the images on your site have been pinned, how many times and by whom. After you collect this invaluable data, you can move to Cyfe, another excellent tracking data software with which you can monitor the progress of your content on multiple levels. Nevertheless, in order to make this work, you will need strong image-oriented content accompanied by nice looking graphics.

2. Pinterest for bookmarking popular sites

You can't simply pin your own content and expect traffic to increase over night. In order to be successful on Pinterest you must invest in others as well. This means that you must create multiple boards, related to your niche, that add value to the community. Always try to keep in mind the Pinterest netiquette. Repin things that you like, comment and favorite on other user's profile. From time to time you can also pin your own content to your boards. Furthermore, Pinterest is an excellent bookmarking tool, that will ensure that your content is relevant and buzzworthy. Pin articles and timely stories that concur with different events. In a way, you can consider this content curation for your website. Another solution would be to reporpuse the pin as content by writing an opinion article based on a pin. According to a guest posting services company, writers should be inventive and find interesting ways to market their content.

2. Pin your own content throughout your boards

We have already mentioned that there is a netiquette that you should respect while on Pinterest. According to recent statistics, personal content should not take more than 20% of your overall pins. Pinning your own content is the most crucial part of using Pinterest for content marketing. It is true that good content is always pinabble, but you must use your head in order to make the most out of it. In case you didn't know, it is possible to use keywords in order to optimize your pins. This is extremely important, because it will help users find your pins faster (80% of pins are usually repins). The potential for exposure on Pinterest is huge, as long as you know how to use it. Considering that so many of the pins are actually repins, this means that there are enormous opportunities to be had. In all likelyhood, people will start to follow you if you have well-kempt, interesting and fresh boards, so make sure you dedicate at least a couple of hours a day for Pinterest if your blog is image-oriented.
