    Problem in Data Recovery

    My simulation results On Windows 10 20H2, Recuva and Steller both were able to recover all deleted files about 200MB in all from the non-system partition. However as soon as I copied a tiny 50KB file to the root of the partition the game changed. Once it failed to recover more than 70% of the...

    Problem in Data Recovery

    Generally, the reason why data recovery works in theory but fails practically especially for individual files is that while they are being recovered, their partial pieces space is sometimes overwritten at the same time by something else. However, if time permits, someday I will try to simulate...

    Need additional router suggestions for my new Airtel connection with ZTE F670LV9.0 for coverage issue

    I started with an understanding that kg11sgbg wants to knock-off Airtel’s GPON router and use their own in its place. Since this is not that flexible, the way to achieve is to put it in Bridge Mode and use your router behind it as Main router front ending ISP’s WAN. This setup is slightly...

    Problem in Data Recovery

    While very obvious but still I ask, I assume you recovered the files elsewhere and not on D: Generally you can't go wrong because the tool warns you if you attempt to do so.

    Need additional router suggestions for my new Airtel connection with ZTE F670LV9.0 for coverage issue

    I assume you first enabled Bridge Mode and then proceeded to configure the ports. As I mentioned earlier in my previous post, I suggest you might need to contact Airtel as they might have to do something from their end. It could be MAC auth or even something to do with PPPoE or any other type of...

    Problem in Data Recovery

    Just curious... Was it the system drive (C: where Windows is installed) from where you deleted the bunch of files or any other non-system partition? Is your Windows 10 installed in Legacy (MBR) Mode or UEFI (GPT) Mode? In the past when you recovered the entire partition even after reinstalling...

    Need additional router suggestions for my new Airtel connection with ZTE F670LV9.0 for coverage issue

    Just to keep it simple for now, bind on all ports, so that you can take LAN cable from anyone and plug it into the WAN of your router.

    Need additional router suggestions for my new Airtel connection with ZTE F670LV9.0 for coverage issue

    First take full back up of the existing configuration settings. Talk to Airtel just in case any support from them is needed. E.g. MAC auth, any unlocking of any settings in case any etc which I cannot imagine from here. Depending upon your GPON router model the option for Bridge Mode shall be...

    Need additional router suggestions for my new Airtel connection with ZTE F670LV9.0 for coverage issue

    I assume your definition of better is ‘Better in terms of setup options/features/functionalities etc’. If so, consider putting Airtel’s GPON Router in Bridge Mode (If Supported) and then using your own WAN & LAN port RJ45 based router (Ideally should have Gigabit ports ) after that as your main...

    How to do fast file copying in Windows 10?

    The points mentioned in above posts & also external links are most likely the culprits, however if you are interested, do a bit more troubleshooting. Run CrystalDiskMark speed test on both the source and destination drives with at least 512 MB chunks of data, 2 passes and share the results...

    Official Windows 11 Thread

    I would like to share 2 of my experiences with Windows 11. I do not know about any unofficial releases available on the Net, but what I did is wrapped Windows 11 official install.esd or install.wim in Windows 10 installer and then installer skips all pre-requisite checks. So except bitness of...

    Gen Post - UEFI Shell - How to access and basic uses

    As requested by some of you. Some details on UEFI Shell UEFI enables accessing at least FAT file system as well as running efi applications. UEFI Shell is an element of UEFI and it can be sort of considered as a command prompt (a small OS / efi app that runs on top of UEFI) that can run a...

    TV Tuner Software for Windows 10

    If still unresolved by now, try Honestech tvr with following settings and check again. Also check other options too. These are the settings that work for me the best on Win10. I don't have techcom but some other USB AV capture. Try Bandicam Screen Recording Software: capture anything on...

    Official Windows 10 Thread: Installation and Issues (check first post)

    You should set Rufus to create a UEFI boot capable Pen drive not Legacy, if Legacy it shall boot to Legacy mode. The EFI switch has a very very limited functionality. It's not a full UEFI supported system. I suggest you also try the shell.efi renamed as Bootx64.efi at /EFI/Boot folder on FAT...

    Official Windows 10 Thread: Installation and Issues (check first post)

    In that case your Firmware is blind enough to only really switch to EFI when it detects HDD > 2TB. That was the main purpose of Hybrid-EFI. I assume you used Rufus to create a pen drive and forced Rufus to go for only GPT-UEFI booting not including legacy. In my case it worked at least with...
