It’s YABO time! No, that’s not a Fred Flintstone reference; it’s Yet Another Beta Opportunity (YABO). OK, so that’s not really a sanctioned Symantec Acronym but I’m using it from now on anyways.

Speaking of Acronyms, what I run is really more of a UAT (User Acceptance Testing) program cycle. It starts with Beta, moves into a Release Candidate (RC) cycle, and finishes with the First Availability (FA) phase. But enough about boring naming logistics, let's get to the core of what we are talking about for this BESR UAT program.

Some of the highlights of what’s new/updated:

  • New OS/Database platform support including SharePoint 2010
  • Significant improvements to the SRD (Symantec Recovery Disk) custom wizard
  • Updated Linux platform support
  • Multiple improvements to the Management Solution (MS) including Windows Server 2008 R2 (x64) support
  • Status marker on the tray icon will be moved to...

The best thing about LINUX is that it is being frequently improved over the previous versions and hence, LINUX based computers are quite robust in terms of functionality and features. However, rich functionality our computer may have, it is the data we store in it is the most important thing. We opt for a storage device with advance technology only for the safe storage and better accessibility of our valuable data. People, who have a notion that LINUX operating system based computers are comparatively problem free, usually go wild when they face any problem with their computer. Moreover, if the problem go to an extent, when there is a chance of data loss, the panic needs no explanation. One thing is true that, we can't prevent data loss, but, can recover the data with the help of any LINUX data recovery software.

Possible data loss situations in LINUX:

Accidental or intentional data deletion is the primary reason behind data loss. Sometimes, we...

Is your Time Machine backup locked after you repair your Mac OS X computer? Are you unable to access data from Time Machine volume? Does you Mac OS X computer starts creating fresh backup automatically when you connect your external Time Machine drive to system? This behavior usually occurs due to permission issues in Macintosh machine. The permissions are either damaged or missing. At this point, you need to format your hard drive to fix the problem. However, it removes all the data from hard drive and cause serious data loss situations. In order to recover your valuable data, you must opt for Mac recovery solutions.

When you backup volume gets locked, the Time Machine icon is replaced with simple volume icon with a small lock on it. In such cases, the volume can not be mounted and you can not access data stored on it. In case the volume is mountable and you attach it to a newly installed Mac computer, the same problem occurs with this computer as well. Your system drives...

The ext4 file system in Linux systems is the successor of the ext3 file system. As ext3 was extensively used for quite a long period, the ext4 file system is loaded with lot of new changes to overcome the limitations of ext3 file system. Few important data structures have been added in the ext4 file system to make it provide improved performance, new features, and reliability along with a better design. One such feature is the delayed allocation feature, which does not write any new data as soon as it is entered. Because of this, the processor waits till the time it is really necessary to write the data to the disk as it optimizes the write processes.

However, sometimes the delayed allocation feature results in severe data loss. You should use appropriate methods to resolve the situation. If you are not able to restore the lost data, then you should use a third-party Linux data recovery software to perform ext4 recovery.

Consider a scenario wherein you are using...

Mac OS X hard drive is divided into various partitions, called volume, for effective management of your precious data stored on it. Every Mac computer has a boot volume, which contains critical system files that are required for your Mac OS X operating system-based computer to boot up. These files are pretty important for booting up your system. In case the boot partition gets damaged or deleted, your system become totally unbootable and unusable. It leads to severe data loss and require Mac drive recovery solutions to fix the problem, if there is no backup in place.

The boot volume of your Mac OS X operating system contains the following files:

Mac OS X operating system.

MBR (Master Boot Record).

BootX, Mac OS X boot loader.

Operating system kernel.

Binary files that are required for multiple kernel extensions.

Mach/BSD data structures.

Input/Output Kit.

Init, Mach bootstrap (service naming) daemon.

The boot...
