How to increase data transfer speed in Hard disk

How to increase data transfer speed in Hard disk

Who doesn't love speed when it comes to your pc. Faster performance of your pc makes you feel great.
But what happens when your Hard disk starts to perform like crap or takes a lot of time to process and copy files. You think that your pc has started to show its age. But did you know, sluggish performance of your Hard-disk is not always the effect of your pc's age.
So we shall discuss what causes your Hard disk to go sluggish.

Reason 1. Your Hard disk may be heavily fragmented
It simply means that the storing system of your Hard disk is not properly managed. Don't worry, it happens with all of the computers, at certain point of time.
It does severely affect the pcs which have never defragmented their Hard disks.

Solution:
Fortunately, Windows has got an inbuilt feature to Defrag the Hard disks.
To defrag an Hard disk follow these steps :
Step 1. Right click on the Hard disk to be Defragmented and select Properties.
Step 2. Switch to Tools tab and click on Optimise. 
Step 3. A new window should pop-up. From there, select your Hard disk and click on Optimise.
Defragmentation will take some time to get completed.


I recommend you to use TuneUp Utilities to defrag your Hard disk, it is a powerful software to optimize your pc, which will thoroughly defrag your Hard disk and you'll get back your original faster performance from Hard disks.
Download TuneUp Utilities fom the Official website.

Using TuneUp Utilities to defrag Hard disk:
Navigate to Optimize tab > Click on Defragment Hard disk > Select Hard disk and click Next.

Reason 2. Write-Caching may be disabled
Enabling Write-Caching on your Hard disk will result in better performance of your Hard disk and pc. If it has disabled by anyhow, it can be manually enabled. 

Solution:
To enable Write-Caching on your Hard disk, follow these steps:

Step 1. Right click on your Hard disk and click on Properties.
Step 2. Switch to Hardware tab and double-click on your hard disk. 
You need to identify which is your Hard disk (even if the names are confusing), by looking at the icons. 
Step 3. Then click on Change Settings option from the following window.
Step 4. Switch to Policies Tab and Enable Write-Caching by ticking the box.


Reason 3. Hard disk is running out of space
It has been proved that if your Hard disk has less than 20% of free space, then it will not work at its peak performance. If you want to make your Hard disk work at blazing speed as before, try to keep 20% of its space free.
For this, you can:

1. Compress files: Compressing files will result in huge amount of space to be saved. However, all of the files will not compress and save space, for ex, video and audio files will not save space but compressing an installed game will result in huge space to be saved.

2. Use TuneUp Utilities to remove Duplicate files: TuneUp Utilities has a feature of finding and removing duplicate files on your Hard disk, which may save a huge amount of space, in many cases.

So these were the solutions to reasons behind the slow down of your Hard disk.

How to easily recover deleted messages in WhatsApp

How to easily recover deleted messages in WhatsApp


                                                                    © WhatsApp

Before WhatsApp was developed we could not think of an app that would be free to send text, photos, videos, and audio. 
When there is some kind of uniqueness in a particular thing, it doesn't take time to become viral. Same is with WhatsApp, it did not take much time to be in almost every Android and Symbian phone in the world. 
This is the reason for which Mark Zuckerberg  bought it for a jaw-dropping $19 billion, and he still thinks that WhatsApp is worth more than that.
Today WhatsApp is the most popular messaging service which uses data plan to transmit users' messages.

So it was a brief introduction to WhatsApp, Now let's come to the point and get started.
Recovering deleted WhatsApp messages is not that difficult as it may sound. If you have deleted your chat history by mistake, then don't panic because WhatsApp automatically makes a backup of your chat history and saves them to your phone memory. The backup will not be removed before 7 days, after that it may be overwritten or deleted. 

There are two ways to recover your deleted WhatsApp chat history: -


Method 1. Reinstallation method
Uninstalling and then reinstalling WhatsApp restores the chat history in most cases.
So it is the simplest thing you can do. Just follow these steps :-

Step 1. Uninstall WhatsApp
Step 2. Reinstall from the .apk file you've got.
Step 3. When you'll start it, it'll ask you to whether restore from backup file or not. Simply click on Restore to get your messages back.

                                                                    © WhatsApp

                                                                                           © WhatsApp


It should restore your messages, but if it didn't, don't worry we've got another way to get our valuable messages back. Just follow the steps to the next trick.

Method 2. Restoring from Backup file
If the previous trick did not prove to be useful for you, then continue reading this one.
It did solve the problem for me.

Requirements : A file explorer. Use any well-known file explorer from Playstore, such as, ES File explorer, or Root Explorer.
(In this tutorial I have used ES File Explorer.)

Now follow the steps carefully: -
Step 1.
Open ES File Explorer and navigate to sd card > WhatsApp > Databases. 
                                                               © WhatsApp


Step 2.
There you'll find files of your past seven days backup. They will be named as msgstore-YYYY-MM-DD.1.db.crypt

Step 3.
Now find the one with the date you want to recover messages from. If you don't remember the date, go for the latest one because it will have most of the messages.
Rename that file as msgstore.db.crypt
Mark these words, they should be exact, crypt should not remain crypt5 or crypt7, it should only be crypt.
                                                                © WhatsApp


Step 4.
Now follow Method 1 from starting, i.e. Uninstall and Reinstall WhatsApp.
When it asks for restoration, click on Restore to get your messages back.

That is all. We have successfully recovered all of the deleted messages.
Now go and recover your messages fast before their backup gets replaced with the newer one.

How to check whether an email address exists?

How to check whether an email address exists?



Have you ever tried to find out whether an email address exists or not? There are times, when you're not sure about an email address, if its valid or not. In that case you send an email to that address and get your email bounced back after few hours. Isn't it a time consuming process to check the existence of an email address. Yes it is.
So today I have brought you two simple ways to check whether an email address exists or not, in seconds.
In this tutorial, I have used my Google or Gmail account to check any email address's existence.

Trick 1 : Check using your own Email address

This is the simplest trick to check the existence of an email. The only thing you need to do is, pretend that you've forgot your password. 
Step 1. 
Open the Gmail sign in window.


Step 2. 
Select or type your email address but not your password. Then, click on Need Help? option below password.

Step 3.
In the following window, select I don't know my password.

Step 4.
There it'll ask for an email address whose password you've forgotten. Your email would be already typed in there. Replace your email address with the email address you want to check existence for. If it's correct there'll not be any problem and you'll proceed further, but if it's not, you'll see an error saying that 'No account found with that email address.'


So, by this you can simply check whether an email address exists or not.

Trick 2 : Check by creating a new account 

This is an alternative to the previous trick but yet equally effective. It has a limit that it will work only for Google email service (Gmail).
Simply create a new account and type that email address in the username field (excluding @gmail.com). Google will let you know whether that username is available or not.

So these are the simple tricks to check the existence of an email address. Did you think it is that easy?? I guess no.

How to share Youtube video links in Facebook groups

How to share YouTube video links in Facebook groups



Posting video to Facebook groups have always been a challenge as our best Social media site, Facebook, doesn't allow to share YouTube video links to its groups. 
Whenever you'll try to share any of your video links to Facebook groups, it'll show you an error that this URL watch?v cannot be shared.

The big advantage to share YouTube Video links to Facebook groups is that your video reaches to thousands of people, which will also bring popularity to your channel.

Now, the problem is that many websites show you How to share YouTube videos to Facebook. But they do not tell you how to share them in Groups. They'll simply tell you to copy and paste the video URL in the group, which is not possible (at times) .
Believe me I've done a lot of research but could not find anything which is helpful to this topic. They'll show you to share the post on your Timeline, and then again sharing it in a group by selecting In a group option from top left drop-down menu. Then selecting the group's name and then sharing. Isn't it a long process if you want to share in at least 10 groups.
So today, first time ever on Internet, I'm gonna tell you How to share YouTube video links to Facebook Groups. This trick is 100% genuine and 200% working.
Just follow these simple steps: -

Step 1.
Play the YouTube video you wanna share on Facebook groups.

Step 2.
Under the video, you'll see some tabs named About, Share, Add to. Click on Share and then select Facebook option from the list.


Step 3.
A new window will pop-up. Click the Share button. 
**The video will be posted on your Timeline.


Now, we are going to share it in the groups. 
(Note: Above three steps are also important.)

Step 4.
Open your Facebook account and see your video posted there.


Step 5.
Right click on the video and select Copy link address option. 


Step 6.
Open Notepad and paste the link there. It would be somewhat like :  http://www.youtube.com/attribution_link?a=xlw4bkH1b7U&u=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3Db2yXdUrz5KE%26feature%3Dshare

Step 7.
Open any Group in which you want to share the video. Copy that link in the Group.
Your video's picture and link will come up immediately after pasting that link.
Finally Click on Post to Share your video in that group. 

Bonus tip:
If you want to share any link quickly in many groups, follow this safe trick:- Open all the groups in which you want to share your link In New Tabs, Copy the link in one group and Press Ctrl+Tab to move to next group (i.e. next tab), repeat this till you reach the last tab.
When you get back to first tab, the link must have been updated with the picture, what simply you have to do is simply click on post button and move to next tab using Ctrl+Tab, repeat this process till the last group.

The video will be shared without any errors.
See the proof:
