Apple service center

Bounceback has had great experiences with a local Mac service center and so we’d like to recommend them to all of our apple customers. After going through a terrible experience with an apple store and apple headquarters in California, we were pleased to find an exceptional company that takes up the slack where apple comes short. We heard glowing recommendations from two different individuals before going to them and found their praise of this company to be very well deserved. So if you ever need any kind of Apple service we highly recommend going to Machq before going to anyone else at all. Here’s their contact information:

Cindy hill hard drive subpeona

Wyoming’s State Superintendent of Instruction, Cindy Hill’s defense team recently delivered 165,000 subpoenaed documents today to the prosecution. The prosecution’s response was that since the documents were not indexed or sorted that this was an attempt to hide relevant information like “a needle in a haystack”. We believe that this isn’t true considering the vast search capabilities provided by software and services of companies such as google. ┬áThese services make it relatively easy to pick out documents that contain relevant keywords, phrases, and with the debut of google’s “hummingbird” – concepts. With google’s new hummingbird search algorithm, these kind of tasks are handled with ease. All the documents could be put into a web-searchable platform and no more “needle in a haystack” concerns.

Molly’s Restaurant in Soulard

I had dinner today at Molly’s Restaurant in Soulard. The food there was some of the best food I’ve eater had in any restaurant. We had crab cakes and “firecracker shrimp” for an appetizer, and Jambalaya and a flat iron steak for the main course. The food was amazing and it was plated like a 5 star restaurant.

You can park at Molly’s for free, have a meal, and take a shuttle that comes to the front door that goes to the stadium for Cardinal’s games.

Century motorcycle run

St. Louis police impounded dozens of motorcycles participating in the recent ride of the century motorcycle run this weekend. BounceBack data recovery is often contacted to recover data from the helmet cams of motorcycle riders whose stunts well… resulted in the need for data recovery services. Anecdotal evidence points toward a surprising correlation between those with motorcycle helmet cameras and those who are involved in accidents resulting in severe injury or death. Be careful out there!

In other news a local painting business, mueller custom painting, is offering its services to restore paint on highway markers, and homes in proximity to this event that may need their services. Find a link to their website below.

RAID data recovery

When we work on complicated RAID data recovery jobs, it’s almost always the case that the individual who tried to recover the problem on his own fails to reveal all the mistakes they made in the process. Knowing exactly what has happened with a RAID failure is an incredibly important part of the recovery process. Getting incomplete or false information makes the recovery more time consuming and sometimes impossible. If you are a tech responsible for making mistakes, know that most data recovery companies would gladly agree to keep any information confidential that can lead to a successful recovery. The important thing that we care about is getting accurate information. We have no incentive to throw anyone under the bus, and we have every incentive to do whatever it takes to get the information we need. How many rebuilds took place, what kind of rebuilds, and any other mistakes or accidents that happened are crucially important to know.

Rebuilt RAID data recovery

BounceBack has begun work for a premiere phone recording company. Many people require this critical data for legal purposes. This particular raid had two drives that failed. The two drives were replaced and fsck was run in an attempt to repair it. There was also a partial rebuild attempt. It’s important to note that when you have a raid where a drive has failed its imperative to clone each drive in the RAID before anything else is done. Most RAID systems are comprised of drives that are of the same model and manufactured on the same day. There may be a flaw in this particular run of drives in the manufacture process where many can experience a failure around the same time. It’s also very important to note that after two drives have failed in a RAID 5 system, a rebuild or fsck will never get the data back. It’s not possible, and these procedures will create layers of difficulty for a recovery company. Any partial rebuild process must be reversed before the RAID system is destriped. Needless to say, it can be a daunting and tedious task to find the exact point were the rebuild was stopped, and especially tedious to find out exactly what the process was doing and how to reverse it. These jobs are simply not possible for most data recovery companies. This level of recovery requires extensive knowledge of file systems, manipulating and correcting corruption on the low level of a hex editor, and knowledge of programming for sector-level access in order to create custom scripts and code to reverse complicated mixing-up of raw data. The bottom line here is if you have a RAID with valuable data and two drives have failed, this is not the time to task risks and using a trial-and-error approach. Clone each and every RAID member using a hard drive cloning device before you try anything at all.
