PowerPoint file are usually associated with sales or other such important presentations and can cause severe inconvenience. When such occasions do happen, an application like the Recovery for PowerPoint can save the day. This simple program is easy to set up and easy to access. The application is easy to use and does not need any special skills. It can be used either as a stand alone application or integrated with PowerPoint application.
In either format it is a good practice to back up the corrupted file before starting the recovery process and to use a non-local drive on the network to write the recovered file on. When, in either mode, the recover option is selected a file selection dialog opens with the file browser. Recover button is clicked when file has been selected. After file processing is completed the program queries for a file name for the recovered file. Default is a file with “Recovered” suffix added to the corrupted file name.

It is possible to use the application at the command line prompt by specifying the corrupted file name and the recovery filename along with the command. One could use this facility to run a batch of files to be recovered.

Cons: Depending on the methodology used inside the program not all possible corruptions can be recovered. One needs to run test cases to find out what can and cannot be recovered.

Virtual CloneDrive

Monday, May 12th, 2008

Virtual CloneDrive is a freeware program which lets you mount disc images as if they were discs in your drive. It basically fools your system into believing that there is another CD/DVD drive in your system. On this virtual drive, you can mount disc image files.These are exact copies of a physical disc, but as a single file, usually ISO, BIN and some other formats.

It’s very simple to use as you just have to double click an image file and it will treat it just as if you had double clicked on a real disc in your computer’s drive. It enables you to work with up to 8 virtual drives.

One example of how this could be useful is if you were to make backups of discs (as image files) for use on your laptop when you are on the move, saving you from having to carry around and load and unload a bunch of discs that may get lost or scratched.

Check it out here.
