Thumbs up Kroll Ontrack Data Recovery Software - January 7, 2013, 10:57 AM

FTW!

Long story short, had a users roaming profile go corrupt because she saved everything to the desktop and it switched to a local profile instead of syncing with our file servers. Local profile got deleted and everything that was important to her, gone.

Hooked the drive up to another machine and ran a full recovery on the drive using the software, and it brought everything back and placed it all in a new folder, albeit under a ton of new numbered directories, but you can search by file type, and it's all there. Pretty impressive software.

Nice.


Funny how most of our problems seem to stem from users doing shit they aren't supposed to do, eh?

BTW - is there consumer version of this software or is this enterprise level only?
I had a profile go corrupt on me this summer. I thought I was safe because I did bi-monthly back-ups to an external using Windows integrated system imager.

Poppy cock! What was I thinking?! Winblows refused to recognize and "see" the back-up profile.

Thankfully I had an old hard drive which had the same system image, albeit, I hadn't used it in 6 months. I was able to restore 70% of the content using a system image of that old drive, but I still lost some important data.

Every system I've ever spec'd for users has included a RAID1 drive setup and even with roaming desktops we still run daily incremental profile backups. Laptops are always a bit more difficult and usually entailed ad-hoc routes.

Glad to hear the recovery was successful (always good to know about reputable software for such occasion). I would stress additional redundancy at the client site.

This.

Or for some groups, shared raid (our 5 GIS guys use an 8TB raid 10 appliance to work, and I have part of that set aside for backing up their Windows shit

Though any additional copy is always good to have, a solution outside of the workstation (or primary storage, i.e thin client related) is always less reliable then a simple built in solution.

I used their disk recovery service when a user (upper management) had a hard drive controller failure. They recovered the stuff all too easily (although it cost about $1100). User seemed happy about this backup solution and continued to keep single copies of important files, eventually suffering another disk failure. Thankfully user is now retired.
