The iPod And The Data Recovery Software

By Sandy Cosser

The Apple iPod has taken the audio world by storm. When it was first introduced to the public, it was snapped up so quickly that suppliers often ran out of stock and had waiting lists that were weeks long. Apple soon realised the marketing and entertainment potential that the little device held. The hard drives grew rapidly and their range expanded from music storage and playing to include photo viewing capability and video playback. Even though the hard drive is prone to the same inherent risks and dangers of all hard drives i.e. viruses, formatting and data loss, the age of the iPod has arrived.

IPods come in a variety of styles, each with different features and special functions. The iPod Classic has come a long way since its inception as a strictly musical device. It now comes in two sizes, 80Gb and 160GB, and has audio as well as video capabilities. It comes with an Extras menu where you'll find features such as a calendar, a clock and a space for all your contacts. There is also a function that allows you to lock your screen with a four-digit combination.

The iPod Touch has a multi-touch interface, which allows you to access all of the features and adjust systems using only your fingers. Aside from being able to effortlessly switch between albums and songs and flick through and enlarge photos at will there is also a QWERTY touch screen keyboard. This makes surfing the web with your Wi-Fi connection easier, just another one of the special features of the iPod Touch. An ambient light sensor detects changes in the light around you and adjusts the brightness of the screen to suit the environment. This not only enhances your experience of the iPod, it also saves on battery power.

One of the few flaws in Apple iPods is their reliance on inbuilt hard drives, so they face the same potential data loss risks as all hard drive systems face. Data recovery companies can restore lost data from iPods, but there is also data recovery software available that is just as reliable.

The software is able to recover data from iPod drives that have been formatted or corrupted by viruses. The drives are also vulnerable to physical damage from being dropped and banged around or can simply malfunction due to a fault in their hardware. Data lost in this way is also fully recoverable with the use of data recovery software. Images, videos, photos and music that have been accidentally deleted can be easily restored.

As iPods continue to develop more elaborate features and meet more entertainment needs, the demand for them increases. Apple discovered a niche in the audio market and filled it, expanding to every corner and crevice. It remains to be seen whether or not they left any room for competitors, as so far no one has risen to the challenge and developed quite as spectacularly as Apple has. The age of the iPod is upon us, and it seems that the little device is bent on world domination.
