perfect uninstaller

Perfect Uninstaller

Perfect Uninstaller is a tool designed to effectively and efficiently uninstall applications that your standard Add/Remove Programs cannot. This is a very useful tool, especially for users that like to install lots of different applications on their systems. Its ability to perform complete removals is what I like most about it, as Windows built-in Add/Remove Program component has a tendency to leave behind lingering files and folders. With that said, a tool best suited for highly active computer users.

File Recovery & Backup Tools

From hardware failure, to viruses and software bugs, there are so many potential dangers that could destroy your files. Losing your music files, personal files and business files would be a disaster for most. This is where file recovery and backup tools come into play. The following tools come highly recommended.

photo recovery

Stellar Phoenix Photo Recovery

Stellar Phoenix Photo Recovery is a tool designed to recover deleted or lost photo, music, document and video files. This tool is capable of recovering data from not just your internal hard drive, but also your digital camera, memory stick and external hard drive. But the thing I love most about it is its ability to create images of your hard drive, which you can store on a third-party storage device for safe keeping. If you’re looking for a file recovery suite, then you can’t go wrong here.

remo file eraser

Remo File Eraser

Deleting a partition, formatting a hard drive or simple deletion of data is not the most effective way of ridding your storage device of data; ultimately, such data can be recovered, with the appropriate equipment. This is where Remo File Eraser comes into play as an accurate and secure data shredding tool which shreds your confidential files/folders beyond recovery. Personally, I like to use it to delete files the operating system is preventing me from removing, usually because of a file share violation or a general OS fault. Either way, Remo File Eraser is able to get around this, saving me (and I’m sure, eventually you), a lot of heartache.

All synchronised data is encrypted, so you needn’t worry about hackers. ZipCloud is also fully automated, making it ideal for all computer users. This storage service also has no size limitations. Cloud storage is undoubtedly the most secure way of backing up your data, which is why ZipCloud comes HIGHLY RECOMMENDED by me.
