My husband actually tried a few of these programs to recover an external hard drive but they didn't work. We had to go with a data recovery company who told us the drive had physical damage to it and that's why the programs didn't work. They said I was lucky I didn't make the situation worse because software usually can kill a drive with physical problems. I wish someone would have told me this before I tried it. I was lucky anyways.

If I may put my two cents in, Bitdefender free edition is not a good choice.

You have to download an installer -an offline intaller simply does no exist- and the installation needs several consecutive downloads even after the installation. The first definitions update takes a while and sometimes goes wrong, so the program forces you to start the updating process again. I know this because I tried installing bitdefender on different PCs from friends and relatives, so I can say the process isn't as smooth as you'd want.

The installer does not include an uninstaller, you have to download a third party one if you ever get bored (or annoyed) by Bitdefender. Also, you have 30 days to test the product, after that period you are forced you to create a free BitDefender account or login with facebook or G+ within the app to continue using the product.

IMHO, not the best of approaches.

Thanks Philip! Yes I looked at Tresorit but the storage costs about 10 times what dropbox costs right now for 1 TB. And they have a lot of limitations even for the paid pro and business versions (e.g. max 2 GB file size, etc.) Also does not support selective sync of subfolders within a Tresor. I guess the perfect solution doesn't exist :-(! I remember several years ago I used IDrive and Mozy and they both supported "zero-knowledge" encryption with private key known only to the user. But unfortunately these are more for backup than for sync and they both had their own limitations as well.

If anyone in this forum knows about a client-side cloud encryption utility that works with dropbox and other similar clods without doubling my local storage - would still love to hear about it.

Thanks!

view
4 days 19 hours ago Best Free Antivirus Software Chiron

As per my methodology I only use the results from Real World Protection Tests. In those Avast has consistently been doing quite well. The issue with File Detection Tests is that they really only test what has become just one part of the job of an antivirus. These days what matters is how all of the protection layers add together to protect a system. Thus, focusing on just one, such as File Detection, doesn't really give a good picture of the protection capabilities. That is why I leave out any descriptions of file detection statistics, even though historically that used to be what was most important in terms of protection.

Let me know if you have any questions, or concerns, about this methodology. I am always looking for issues with it so that this advice can be improved.

Thank you.

You make some good points but your reasoning, while perfectly sound, cannot be applied to most people.
Sadly we are now living in a world of kamikaze Facebookers where common sense seems to be, at best, in short supply. It think it's a bit unrealistic to expect the majority of computer users to have the same level of experience, knowledge and as you say, common sense as a veteran user such as yourself....or myself.
Generally speaking, most people who get their machines infected deserve it because they can't be bothered to spend a couple of hours gaining some knowledge. They are too busy re-tweeting vacuous garbage or validating their own existence through the medium of posting found content on some NSA/GCHQ proxy surveillance site like Facebook. You don't seriously expect these people to have a common sense approach to using the web? Really?:D

Hi Folks,

Wondering if anyone has given any thought to the local storage space requirements of these encryption utilities. From what I have seen most of them store both cleartext and encrypted copies of the same data locally. Putting aside compression for the moment, this essentially doubles the space requirement. So if I want cloud security, I need to double the size of my hard drive? Is that the best that's out there right now? Besides, this model does not exactly match the "on-the-fly" concept. I see it more as slowly crawl from cleartext to encrypted, and then more slow crawl from encrypted to cloud.

The compression helps save a bit of space but you still need almost double, and it comes at a pretty big price in performance. Using Viivo right now and I am seeing it does not give you a choice to turn compression off - seems pretty ridiculous. User should be able to choose if they wnat the files faster or smaller.

Would love to hear thoughts on this.

Thanks!

1 week 18 hours ago Best Free Instant Messaging Client Linuxis

I've been using Instantbird lately as my IM client.
Instantbird is based on Mozilla Firefox, while using libpurple as a backend. (Pidgin, Adium)
Instantbird is incredibly user friendly, it walks you through adding accounts. And since it's based on Firefox, it supports addons.

I hope you all give it a try. :)

I use Battery Doctor (Battery Saver) by Cheetah Mobile. It seems pretty good.
I also use Cheetah Mobile antivirus (CM Security) and Clean Master.
They seem to have good apps.

about 2 years ago ,i had a PC with 256MB RAM and had a lot of difficulty browsing the web as the latest versions of Firefox,chrome and opera would crash due to lack of memory.browsing sites like Facebook was out of the question.at that point of time i installed k-meleon and flashpeak slimboat and used to use them regularly.
use k-meleon for normal browsing and flashpeak slimboat for browsing social networking sites and video sites like Facebook and YouTube.

True, but I am unable to proceed. My firewall makes no allowance for me to ignore such warnings. Sigh.

1 week 1 day ago How to Report Malware or False Positives to Multiple Antivirus Vendors hunterhunted

Very, very useful. Some email addresses seem to be down for me:
submit@trojanhunter.com
k7viruslab@labs.k7computing.com
trojans@moosoft.com
virus@esafe.com

To further streamline stuff, I have a bat file with the following content in my directory with malware and just drag new samples onto it.

@echo off
"C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7z.exe" a -pinfected -t7z "%1.7z" "%1"
"C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7z.exe" a -pinfected -tzip "%1.zip" "%1"

Modify accordingly for wherever you installed 7zip.

Hi crombierob,
I think HotkeyP works a little different, but still...
What is the advantage of what you have in mind, on HotkeyP?
