A database document is just a collection of information stored in computerized form. The simplest way to understand a database is to think of it like a set of 3 x 5 cards. Since the information is on your computer, though, a dick of the mouse or the stroke of a key can alphabetize those "cards," or find just the names of the people on the cards who live in a certain town, or tell you who owes how much money, and so on.

Data recovery is the art of restoring lost or damaged files. This damage can occur when your computer crashes, a virus infects, you accidentally reformat a disk that contains precious data, or you experience some other catastrophe of considerable dimension. And, at some point in your life, you're going to delete a file you really didn't mean to (believe me). The next time tragedy strikes, try running one of the many data recovery applications (powerful software written specifically for data recovery purposes) to see if it can correct the situation. Often these little jewels work magic and save your day-and your files.

In a computer database, the database engine is the software that does the real work of sorting the information, finding specific data that you request, and so on. The term used to refer to a separate piece of software that ran on a central computer (in this case, it is more or less synonymous with the term "back-end"). Widely used database engines include Oracle, DB2, and Sybase. Separate front-end software running on your own computer lets you tell the database engine what to do (how to sort the data, what data to find), and displays the results of your commands.
