Recover Macros From MDE File Using MDB Database

Macros are define as a set of predefined action which perform a number of the common tasks same as Visual Basic code to perform in MDB file. As MDB and macro has some limitations so we prefer module and MDE files over macros and MDB file. Now we should know about MDE files. MDE file format allow you to limit database users from modifying database application that make your data more secure

We can ease our work by converting a MDE file to MDB file. MDE file has some limitaions, although it protects your application from modification or theft, If you want modify your MDE file then you must convert in MDB files. In process of converting MDB to MDE file we lost our macro. We always recommend you to make backup of your MDB file before converting it into MDE files. Sometimes you get common error messages

Microsoft Access can’t find the database file ‘.MDB.’ Make sure you entered the correct path and file name.”..

To get rid from these errors we'll discuss followings steps..

Hard Drive Not Detected:Crashing of Disk Drive

Computer takes a big revolution in our life. It becomes essential part of our life. We are totally dependent on PC and data stored in it. Let’s think one morning, you are trying to boot your system again and again but it shows error “hard disk not detected”. You used your all efforts to start your computer but all goes in vain.

This can be possible in case of your hard disk is crashed or corrupted. When ever you start your computer your hard disk make some clicking sound or it is no longer recognized by the BIOS of the machine. The clicking sound indicates either corrupt firmware or head crash.

In situation of failing hard drive or crashed many people try to open the drive and start repairing it themselves. This is a biggest mistake which should be avoided because the internal components of a hard disk are very fragile and susceptible to dust, scratches and corrosion.

Hard drive recovery gives you a hope of retrieving data from a wide list of data loss disasters. This Recovery software recovers lost and deleted files, which may have been …

Serios Data Loss Issues Caused By Finder: MAC OSX

Apple ease our work by make interface changes in Leopard as “stunning” and “eye-opening,” but in reality the changes are a mixed bag. Leopard’s one feature finder has a glaring bug in its directory-moving code, leading to horrendous data loss if a destination volume disappears while a move operation is in action. It can happen anytime or when you will try to moving a directory from desktop over to a Samba mount on FreeBSD server. This software bugs come when we move a file from one volume to other not in copying.

Moving a file is quite different from copying. Let me demonstrate it, when we copy a file from same one volume to 2nd volume then in new volume references is created and file copied in that reference. In case of file move between two volumes, both volumes seem busy, because new file reference is created and in successful completion of moving old data has been deleted from old volume with its reference.

Old volume reference is deleted only when data move complete successfully. But what will happen if data doesn’t move successfully or operation get failed in midway. Here this bugs comes and start it works and causes serious data loss.

In terms of pseudo code, moving from/to different volumes might look something like this:

move(source, destination) {
    returnVal = copy(source, destination);
    if(returnVal == TRUE) {      // copy success
    } else {                     // copy fail
        message("Move failed");

This is where the problem with the Mac OS X 10.5.0 Finder lies. Finder deletes a file even in fault move and sometimes it becomes a critical loss for us. In short and simple words: If the target medium while moving disappears, then all to move data fetch, because it has the Finder on the source drive erased. What remains, the data on the target drive, which hitherto has been postponed.

One way to avoid this bug is never move a file and always perform copy operation. In this way finder will not work and after successful completion of copy operation remove original file. But after all precaution data loss may happens and here we need data recovery Mac software which can recover our important Mac files which has been loss due to massive bug of finder. Lots of software available over internet, question is which one is best for our purpose.

Every recovery software has some criteria for recovery process depend on there algorithms. Stellar Macintosh data recovery software is one of the best utility in recovery market. It is best because it uses advance algorithm form scanning your lost files and recovers them so easily. Stellar Phoenix Mac Recovery software recovers data from Mac OS X & Max Classic OS hard drives based on HFS, HFS+, HFSX and HFS Wrapper file systems

Essentials of data recovery services

Data Recovery plays an important part in today’s computer world. Every computer user knows that numerous threats that the computer users face causing disruptions to data retrieval. Experiencing hard drive crash or data loss disaster is not uncommon.

Data loss can not be compromised. When data is lost its impact directly goes to the financial problems to a corporation or a common man. To identify system failure and prevent data loss requires what action you need to take to prevent massive system failures and ensure an efficient data recovery process.

In these days hard disks are the most popular storage media to store or save data. But when these hard disks get damaged or corrupted they will lead to many hardships. Hard disk may be categorized into two types.

  • Physical hard drive
  • Logical hard drive

Physical damage arises when there is a problem with the physical structure of hard disk like.

  • Damage due to a power failure or power surge
  • Clicking/whirring noises
  • Damaged platters
  • Water and fire damages
  • Head crashes

When these situations arise with the hard disk, need of data recovery service arises to ensure the data security and hard drive recovery.

Always backup your data else use data recovery

Computers are an integral part of our life and business. Without computers our modern world would fall apart. People do not realize the amount of work computers do for us in every day life. We can store a lot of data like important files, photos, documents, records, in HDD which is a storage media in computers. As computing becomes more mobile and user autonomy grows, users face greater challenges in protecting critical data spread across vast numbers of PC hard drives. Data is the heart of the enterprise, it's crucial for us to protect it.

There are many causes of data loss, and it is a frequent occurrence on many home and business PCs. when you lost your data due to a system failure, hard disk crash, accidental deletion, and human error. Important files are accidentally deleted all the time, data can become corrupt. Natural disasters can leave your office in ruin.

To over come with the problem of data loss regular computer users always backup their data. Backup is said to be the best prevention for data loss. It is a process of having duplicate copy of the original one. It is an activity of copying files or databases so that the data will be preserved in case of any accidentally or intentionally deletion of the data.

The most basic method of backing up your data is on a simple floppy disk. With CD-Rs and now DVD-Rs being cheaper than ever, it is possible to store far more data on a single disk. You can also backup your files on medias like External Hard Drive, Remote backup service, Optical Disk like CD, DVD etc, Digital audio tape (DAT) drives, Magnetic optical drives etc.

Backing up your files is very important because it is one of the safest methods to protect against the worst. However as data becomes increasing in our business world the loss of data is often sharply felt in terms of cost and effort. We need to apply some advanced technology when ever we face a situation like data loss and the ultimate solution is Stellar Phoenix Data Recovery Software.

Data recovery means getting back the lost and inaccessible data. Data Recovery will attempt to recover anything that can be recovered from a damaged hard drive. Data Recovery is actual the act of both backing up the database and associated files and the process of restoring those files to their original place without damaging the original data. It is reclamation of lost or missing data and can recover deleted files, formatted / f-disked drives, viruses, accidents, power surges, hard drive crash, and other optical Medias. Data recovery can recover data from all types of operating systems like Windows (95/ 98/ME/XP/2000/2003). Data Recovery experts use logical and structural technology to recover data more precisely and successfully. So never assume that your valuable data can’t be recovered even after when backup fails in your system.

How to recover precious deleted files!

In this fast growing business world we rely on computers for storing our precious data and documents which is safe and secure for our data storage. The data is stored in files and folders on the hard drive. When we open an application for our daily work and every time we click “save as” that file is written to an area of the hard disk. Each stored file has a "pointer" assigned to it. These pointers are used by the operating system to locate where that piece of data resides on the hard drive.

Sometimes we accidentally delete an important file or folder which contains program files, records, presentation documents and important data for our business productivity. If we use only DEL command from the DOS command prompt our files goes directly into the Recycle Bin and there is a good chance to recover our files by double clicking the recycle bin, your file will be restored back to its original location on the hard drive but incase of using del+shift command or hard drive crash we loss our file for ever. So that file recovery is not possible. It's the same thing that happens when you empty the Recycle Bin or the Trash folder.

The file you deleted occupied space. You erased it, but it's really still there, files don’t get deleted permanently, actually these deleted files are available on you hard drive only your operating system cannot access these file because the address of the file has been deleted from the file system. Now the question arises is there a Way to Recover Deleted Files?

Yes it is possible to recover deleted files and the solution is Data Recovery Software. Stellar Phoenix File Recovery Software can recover your data or files.
