In today’s world of technology, use of computers, smartphones, USB, memory cards etc is increasingly getting common. Interestingly they all have hard drives for data storage. Data storage like office work, college assignments, pictures, songs, movies and a lot more is a must for all of us.  But what if, all your data gets deleted from computers or smartphones due to hard drives getting corrupted?

Hard drive corruption, how does it happen?
Hard drive corruption can occur due to a malware attack, crashed operating system, or accidental formatting of a hard drive or other storage media. It can also occur by connecting someone else’s USB to your PC for files transfer without a virus check/scan.

Human error can be another reason like water spills and accidental drop of devices. Another common reason can be not paying attention to backing up your data and losing it in the process of hard disk failure.

However, there are a lot of tips and tricks you should stick to in order to accomplish that, so keep on reading to find out about the five most effective ones. Check them out and give your skin what it needs this fall! 

Exfoliate, but don’t go overboard with it

Did you know that a gentle facial scrub removes a layer of dead skin cells, uncovers the layer of rejuvenated skin, and therefore improves your overall appearance? This is exactly why you should use a scrub at least twice a week if you want your skin to look and feel healthy, smooth, and luminous. Just don’t overdo it, as a large number of scrubs actually contain retinoids and glycolic acid which may cause redness and irritation when you use them too often. However, if you don’t want to spend your money on expensive facial scrubs, you can always make them on your own. There are a lot of homemade scrub recipes you should take into consideration, as these will do the trick without breaking the bank!


Not everyone is a brilliant cook but even if you aren’t a whizz in the kitchen, you can still convince your friends that you’re a gourmet chef if you follow these top tips!

1.Preparing Raw Onions
If you’ve ever made a salad with raw onions and thought they tasted too pungent, no problem. Fill a bowl with cold water and soak them first before slicing and you’ll discover their odor and flavour isn’t so overwhelming.

2.Seriously Impressive Coffee
If your friends are just popping around for a coffee, impress them with a barista style coffee made with a sprinkling of cinnamon and just a tiny pinch of salt. Add before you brew your coffee grounds and you’ll find that your coffee not only isn’t bitter but is actually amazing. Also, if you invest in a milk frother, you’ll achieve the true coffee shop look when you serve a brew. You can find more details on this link about how to choose the right one for you.

3.Banish Bland Vegetables
If you hate the boring taste of boiled vegetables, try cooking with stock instead of plain water. You’ll be amazed by how much richness and flavor you’ll taste.

4.Forget Table Salt
Table salt is a useful addition, but kosher salt is even better. As it’s less processed it has larger crystals and is flakier than regular salt. This makes it a lot simpler to control the amount you aadd to your food.

5.Make Your Meat Tender
Tenderizing your meat can be a pain, but if you use the velveting method even the toughest steak will suddenly be silky and moist. Coat the slices of meat in egg whites and cornstarch then add a dash of rice wine to really bring out the flavor.

Credit cards have built up somewhat of a bad reputation. Many people use them irresponsibly and to live beyond their means, and then struggle to pay them off when it comes to it. The cycle of credit card debt is difficult to get out of - run up a debt, then get into more debt trying to pay them off.

The thing is, if used correctly and responsibly, credit cards can be useful. If your credit score allows it, you have the willpower not to use it for unnecessary and extravagant purchases, and you have the means to pay it off, they can actually be a handy financial tool, especially if you find the right one for you from cardguru.
