Steller – Professional Data Recovery Services

Being a wanderlust and an avid traveler, my heart palpitates the most when I’m on the road. Stumbling across a path less traveled by and stepping foot in uncharted territories fills my heart with certain emotions.

Emotions that mirror thunder and can’t be put to words. Thus, to be able to reminisce about the joyous memories in my later years, I often try to capture such moments in my camera lens as memoirs.

My zeal to traverse the globe compelled me to visit 5 countries on 3 different continents; namely Dubai, Paris, London, Kiev, and Hong Kong. Having traveled so much and taken over a billion photos, I realized the immense bond I developed with my camera. Each photo came out of sheer passion, patience and nurturing.

If you too have a passion for photography, you’ll know how difficult it is to take that perfect shot.

Be it a family portrait or a random snap I took while traveling, all my photographs meant the world to me. Even the thought of losing a single picture scares me out of my wit. Having said that, there was a time when I did actually lose all my data. To this day, mere reminiscence of the time gives me Goosebumps.

I went backpacking in the north-east once. It was a 7-day trip and I had the time of my life. I went all alone but came back with a multitude of memories, all captured in my DSLR. I preferred to visit places that were oblivious to the average tourist. Thus, I befriended a few locals who took me to places that no one knew off. The views, I tell you, were awe-inspiring. Of course, I being the picture fanatic that I am, clicked as many pictures as possible.

On my way back home, my phone displayed a message showing that my phone’s memory was low. Annoyed by the message, I decided to put my DSLR’s memory card in my phone. I took out the microSD card from the adapter and put it on my phone.

The message disappeared, and I continued my journey of coming back home. I woke up the next day to shut off the alarm and was greeted by the same message again – “Memory full. Make some space by deleting unused files and folders”.

As I was half-asleep, I ended up touching the tab that said, “make more space”. The message disappeared and I went back to sleep again.

When I was about to enter my REM cycle, it suddenly hit me – I might have just made more space by deleting the gallery or something of that sort.

I jumped out of my bed and checked my phone. Almost half my gallery was gone. I had lost over 1000 pictures. I was in utter disbelief. I had no idea what do. I had deleted my own hard work in just a few seconds. I did all I could to try and get back the data but couldn’t. I even tried downloading data recovery apps but none of them recover my photo.

I was completely heartbroken. I just accepted it and decided to move on. The same day, I got a call from a friend asking me about my trip to the north-east and to preferably send him some pictures. And of course, like a cry-baby, I narrated him the whole incident of how I lost over 1000 pictures in the blink of an eye.

After I was done narrating him everything, he laughed and said, “So, when are you going to send me the pictures?”.

I got really pissed. I mean, here I was telling him about how I lost all my pictures and he was mocking me by asking me such a ridiculous question.

He laughed again, asked me to calm down and then said something that just completely lifted my mood.

He told me about Steller Data Recovery.

 

He told me that he too, had a similar experience once and that Steller came to his rescue.

It was later that I realized that Steller also offers a free pick up and drop off facility. There was no need for me to take my phone to the nearby branch. I could have just opted for a pick-up and drop off. Nonetheless, I am completely overthrown by the professionalism and competence that the employees of Steller have showcased.

On receiving my phone back, the first thing I did was to call my friend and thank him from the bottom of my heart. After all, he was the one who introduced me to Steller.

A Simple Test to Save Your Baby’s Delicate Skin

The preparations to welcome a baby start way ahead of its birth. With the whole family indulging in top baby brands to get the best daily use products for the newborn, the ignorance is often at its peak. From skin care products to diapers and baby wipes, established names in the baby-care industry leverage the blind faith of the market and people tend to buy their products without taking into consideration the listed ingredients. But, the harsh reality is that most of these products comprise a list of chemicals that serve to be extremely harmful to your baby.

One such product used daily for the supposed care of an infant is “baby wipes”. These might be doing more harm than good to your baby’s ultra-sensitive skin. With modernization in the lifestyle, wet wipes have replaced the traditional practice of using cotton and water for cleansing during a nappy change and are handier and easier to use. It saves time and is deemed to be more hygienic. However, if your little one still gets those red, itchy rashes on the bum even after all the care; the baby wipes are to be blamed. Believe it or not, most baby wipes contain ‘polyester’ – a water repelling material made of plastic. The use of polyester instead of organic or natural fabric cuts the manufacturing costs thereby increasing the profit margins of these well-established brands. However, it greatly impacts your baby’s skin and leads to allergies and rashes.

How to determine the presence of polyester in wet wipes?

 

Wondering how to protect your baby from the unintentional exposure to unpleasant chemicals? Here’s an easy DIY flame test you can conduct on the baby wipes to see if they are safe to use. All you require is a baby wipe, a candle, and a matchbox.

The Procedure for Flame Test-

-Light the candle using a matchstick.

-Dry up the baby wipe, hold it from a corner and burn it in the flame.

-Observe the results.

 

Variations in results-

If you sense a bad smell like that of plastic burning, it confirms the presence of ‘polyester’ in the fabric used for a wipe. You will also notice the formation of hard black residue or lumps on the burned edges which convey the inferior quality of the fabric and huge amount of polyester used in it. Such chemically formulated wipes are a definite no-no for your munchkin.

On the contrary, if you sense no bad smell or a smell similar to that of burned cloth or paper, it denotes that the wipes are made up of natural fabric and aren’t comprised of polyester. Moreover, there will be soft ash-like material instead of hard lumps. You can rely on such wipes to be safer for your baby.

“A brand that stood out the test”

Although the percentage of polyester varied with each brand, most of the popular baby wipes fail the flame test due to a cheap fabric. However, one brand that came out with flying colors is Mother Sparsh 98% water-based wipes.

When tested, these wipes burn into ashes without exhibiting any foul smell thereby confirming that no these are made up of natural and organic materials. The Mother Sparsh 98% water-based wipes are so gentle on your baby’s skin that they are often claimed to be “as good as cotton and water”.

 

Reasons to use Mother Sparsh baby wipes-

  • The use of 100% natural fabric such as cotton, make this brand highly recommended for a super soft baby skin.
  • It is the best among all the natural baby wipes available on the market as they are water-based sans any harmful chemical formulation, hence no side effects.
  • Unlike other brands, it has a superior quality of fabric that is extremely soft just like a mother’s touch.
  • Mother Sparsh wipes are 100% biodegradable, which makes them not only suitable for babies but also for the environment.

As your baby’s skin is a lot more sensitive than yours, it is essential that all the products are selected carefully. After all, your baby’s health and well-being matter the most, right?
