  • What are Cookies

In modern computing, temporary data takes on many different forms. When using the internet, many web browsers store temporary data via small bits of information, or files, known as cookies. There are several different types of cookies, with some more common than others, and they can all be used to achieve various results.

Common Uses of Cookies
Websites use cookies in a variety of ways. Although most sites generally use them to store personalization options or to prevent fraud, others may be used to track your internet usage and sell your data to marketers and advertisers around the world. Other common uses include:

  • Remembering items in shopping carts or wish lists on an eCommerce site
  • Verifying that certain settings are turned on or off
  • Saving your login credentials or authenticating your identify
  • Auto-filling information in online forms

Now that you have a better idea of how cookies are used in modern computing, it's time to learn more about the different types of cookies available.

The Different Types of Cookies
Understanding the different types of cookies is a crucial step in safeguarding your internet browser from nefarious sites and services. Start by separating all cookies into one of two general categories: first-party cookies or third-party cookies.

Cookies put in place by the websites you've personally visited with your internet browser are known as first-party cookies. These generally affect the functionality or accessibility of the website, but some nefarious sites will use these cookies for tracking or advertising.

In contrast, cookies that are delivered through online advertisements, videos, or banners are known as third-party cookies. Users don't even have to visit the original location of the ad or video. As such, third-party cookies are amongst the most controversial and are often used for nefarious purposes.

Some additional cookie types include:

  • HTTP cookies: Based on the magic cookies that were used by early Unix programmers, HTTP cookies are considered the default type of cookie. They can be either first- or third-party cookies.
  • Session cookies: These cookies only last for the entirety of your current session. Once your internet browser is closed, the cookies will - in theory - be deleted.
  • Persistent cookies: These cookies collect, store, and track information about you, your online accounts, or your browsing habits. However, they're not all nefarious - persistent cookies are used to provide search recommendations, filter search results, manage online profiles, and more.
  • Supercookies: Also known as zombie cookies, these cookies are notoriously hard to remove. Since they're not stored in the same directory as most other cookies, they can be difficult to find in the first place. Even if they are deleted, some have the ability to re-build themselves.

As you can see, third-party cookies pose the biggest threat - but even those aren't really able to uncover your personal identity, download any files, or infect your system with a virus. They can, however, track your internet usage and analyze your personal browsing history. Thankfully, many popular internet browsers and online security suites have already begun blocking third-party cookies right from the start.

I really love your R-Studio product, I am doing Data Recovery as a professional, I used RS since the early versions and I loved the product, as far as I can tell, R-Studio, especially the Tech Version (but including the standard) is one of the best and excellent tools for a pro to have in the arsenal of tools in a pro DR lab, especially combining with the specialized Data Recovery hardware providers like DeepSpar, and PC3000, the rest of `wannabees` out there are waste of time, strongly recommend
I lost more than 200K files from my NAS due to a mistake. I tried 3 different recovery solutions over the 4 TB raid disks, and all of them performed ok but to be honest none of them were able to Raw recover the files and rename them with meaningful names out of the Metadata like R-TT did, then I was able to sort again my files and pictures and kind of restore all of them.

R-TT may not be the easiest or most user-friendly solution, but the algorithm used for the renaming saved me THOUSAND of hours of opening ...
Just recovered my old ext4 partition with R-Studio after trying testdisk and R-Linux without success. That partition was overwritten by another ext4 partition and I was losing my hope until I tried R-Studio demo. It detected all my files and directories again!

Bought it and 100% recommend it for anyone with a similar issue.
Genuinely tried every free program available without luck of recovering a deleted file from months ago. Thinking my file was deleted forever and lose all hope I came across this website as a recommendation.

I was reluctant as it seemed pricey compared to other programs, but damn worth every penny. It managed to even find files I thought were wiped from existence.

Kudos to r-tools, thank you!
Why make incremental backups, when there is R-Studio?

I`m an IT professional who has worked from home for over a decade. Early on in my career, I configured an HP ProLiant Server (Raid 1+0) as a workstation that I would remote into from my laptop. As technology evolved, I began to use it only for email and as a config file repository.

A short while ago, one of the drives degraded, but the HP ProLiant Server (Raid 1+0) still functioned fine on the remaining drive. I was complacent and didn`t replace the ...
