New: minor improvement; log file correctly state the version number.

Version 6.1: has fixed a bug — in the inbox table, both “scts” and “dateime_recv” have the same time stamp; by right “scts” should take the value from properties “scts” which is the time stamp of network operator.

Version 6.0: supports concatenation of multiple part of SMS when sending out, i.e. it can send SMS with more than 160 characters.

MOBITEK SMS Engine — Enterprise Edition is a Windows Service that sends and receives SMS. System integrator and software developer do not need to write any code to build a SMS Gateway. The MOBITEK SMS Engine uses SQL Server database (MS SQL, MySQL, Oracle) to store incoming SMS, and to check if there is any pending SMS to be send out.

Your application or system just need to insert records into “outbox” table to send out SMS, and retrieve record from “inbox” table to read SMS.

MOBITEK SMS Engine has taken care all SMS transactions.

For Oracle support, separate license is required.

How to Recover Lost Partition in Hard Disk

Problem: partition(s) in external hard disk (using hard disk docking station) was lost due to hard disk failure, did not use “safely remove …” to remove hard disk, hard disk corruption, etc.

Solution: there are various recovery tools available

TestDisk is the free and fast while the rest comes with limitations. In this tutorial, TestDisk will be used. The only disadvantage with TestDisk — using command line instead of GUI.

First of all, to recover the lost partition, the same hard disk docking station must be used. I have moved the external hard disk to another docking station and all the above recovery tools cannot detect the lost partition.

  1. run “testdisk_win.exe
  2. select “Create”
    TestDisk-01
  3. select the hard disk having lost partition
    TestDisk-02
  4. if hard disk is formatted using Windows, then select “Intel”
    TestDisk-03
  5. select “Analyse”
    TestDisk-04
  6. TestDisk will display a list of partitions in green letter, press “Enter” to continue”
  7. select “Write” to recover the lost partitions
